Seabank Bistro

Seabank Bistro successfully combines the charm of a seaside café with the cosiness of a neighbourhood restaurant. On a fine evening tables are in demand on the outdoor terrace, while the nautically-themed dining room inside has year round appeal.


This County Dublin restaurants low-key maritime decor is realised with subtle lighthouse wallpaper, and an abundance of sailing accessories dotted about the room. Tables are quite close together – overlooked by an open-fronted kitchen and small bar – and the room has a cosy continental feel.


Seafood plays a large part in the repertoire: although you will also find seafood from afar such as tiger prawns, the daily specials’ board features fresh fish from Howth and Clogherhead, lobster can be chosen from the tank beside the door and signature starters like oysters à la Seabank or Seabank chowder have a loyal following.


Non-fish eaters can expect plenty of choice too, with favourites like rack of lamb, fillet beef or crispy duck featuring on the large printed menu; a children’s menu is also offered, emphasising this restaurant’s appeal for family groups of all ages.


Cooking is consistent, portions are generous and the friendly staff are well-versed in the menu, should you need help when ordering.


Imaginative desserts are chalked up daily on a board, with the kitchen especially strong on chocolate offerings.


A short wine list offers decent value, although it would be nice to see more wines available by the glass.


The early evening menu offers great value and guests are offered complimentary sambuccas after dinner, highlighting the good customer service you can expect from this popular and reliable Malahide restaurant.

Going through Sutton Cross is much more enjoyable these days, with the pretty sage green frontage of Higgins Family Butchers to distract the eye when waiting at the lights - and the smart little tables of the bakery and café too (a branch of the lovely Il Valentin ...
