First time being in House, have been recommended by many to pay a visit. Went for the breakfast bap which was nicely portioned, reasonably priced and served quickly. On a negative note, they could do with upgrading their furniture to something more comfortable. Not the fanciest looking or most comfortable restaurant I've been to but I will definitely be returning... More

Great spot. One of the best in Howth, which has plenty of good restaurants. Was here with a group of 4. We had starters of risotto croquettes, duck and pork belly, all were excellent. Plenty of fish on the menu of various types but there's some other stuff too for people who don't eat fish, like a gourmet burger and... More

Used to be a great place for breakfast. Went with the family this morning, same good service as before but what happened to the food? House fry was terrible, pancakes too. Will not be back.

We met a friend for lunch on a cold winters day and the place was inviting from the moment we opened the door. It was very busy which ensured a lively atmosphere. The lunch menu was supplemented by specials on the board. The staff were friendly and serve was good. The food was delicious but portions were small. They serve... More

Just back from a lovely Christmas gathering of old school friends reuniting from America, and ' the southside'. Had a lovey, and very long lunch, dessert, chats and coffee, with great service and very reasonable bill, in a festive atmosphere. Highly recommend .

Food is only ok if have no other option but what I'm strongly disappointed with is the service that seems to be getting... More

This is a local restaurant that I've been to many times and have never left a review.. This is my go to place, for a coffee in the morning when I need some quiet. For a catch up over lunch with a glass of wine, a romantic dinner or a Sunday lunch with the kids. Service is always professional with... More

I visited the House in Howth on a blustery November morning to warm myself with a coffee. The illy sign outside drew me in and my taste buds were salivating at the thought of that 1st sip of a velvety cappuccino to start my morning. The staff were welcoming and I was greeted by the infectious smile of the barista... More
