There last Saturday with friends and it was lovely. Straight away Stacey the waitress was over and was very helpful with recommendations on what to eat and drink. Food was excellent and well presented. Well done Stacey and all the staff.

Stopped in for a late lunch/early dinner on our way back up from the beach.

Pretty standard steakhouse, nothing special, but hit the spot!

Called in for a quick drink before getting the DART into Dublin. Thought it was a bit tired looking and the staff were a bit disinterested. Wouldn't be in a hurry back.

My nephew, niece and myself went on a day trip to Dublin on Wednesday. We were taking in Riverdance for the evening Slot.
We drove to Malahide to have something to eat around 4p.m. or around that. We choose McGovern's Restaurant, mainly as we are not that familiar with Malahide and it was the most central.
We were under pressure for time so our first fault with this Restaurant was the poor service. We sat there we opened the menu and waited and no one came to us...finally one of the staff brought us on water and said she would be down to take our order...more time passed.
Finally we placed our order and our food did arrive on the table.
The food is good and not scanty on the plate. My nephew enjoyed a very tasty burger cooked and presented extremely well. While my niece and I sampled the Cajun Chicken Salad...very tasty and plentiful.
The food is good. The service is very poor.
The overall appearance is not up to scratch. The floor near the table where I was seated had not been cleaned and chips from previous diners were on the floor and it looked grubby.
The ladies toilet desires a lot of updating. Even the button to press the flush is missing!! and just one toilet?

Enjoyed an early supper there recently. Service was very good, food excellent and portions enormous ! Would definitely return and recommend it, but was very busy so probably book a table first.
