Lali's is a favourite restaurant of mine. As a family we have being dining here for over ten years and we keep going back for the food and the warm welcome every customer receives from chef patron Lamara. It is an Italian style, family restaurant that serves a range of dishes to suit all tastes. My personal favourite is the... More

We had dinner at this restaurant and found the food to be good but not fantastic. The pizza was good but the stromboli had no taste. Service was average. It is a small restaurant so the tables are quite close together and noisy.

Lali's is a decent restaurent for simple and tasty italian food. It's reliabe, inexpensive, and has a very relaxed ambiance. If you're a local you always meet someone you know! It's right beside the velvet strand and has the feeling of a beachy restaurant. I do feel they should try to change the menu around a bit. The early bird... More

We had a late meal one evening. The service was good, but the food pretty average. Fantastic views of Portmarnock Beach, but probably wouldn't bother again.

I had dined here on a good number of times a good few years ago and the food was okay, nothing special and nothing to really draw you back, We decided to try it again last week to see if it had improved. Sadly NO. The place was exactly the same as it was 10 years earlier. On recollection I'm... More

This is a lovely little spot on the seafront of Portmarnock beach. The staff are very friendly and the pizza is great. Worth a call in after a walk along the beach.

Hi Lali's, I took a chance on you the other night with very low expectations based on previous visits and I was very pleasantly surprised. The very nice waiter John was super helpful and friendly and made all the difference to the whole dining experience. Last Christmas my friends and I vowed whilst sitting at a table in our local...

I have dined here a good few times over the years and this place can be a bit hit and miss. The last two times I have thoroughly enjoyed my meal and was very happy with the service. However a few months ago my partner and I went on a Saturday night and it was packed. The service was atrocious... More

Stopped in at Lalis after a long walk on a brisk Sunday, and was pleasantly surprised. We had a Margarita pizza as an appetizer and it was very good. For meals we had sea bass with a slight panko/parmesean crust, and salmon. They were both very good. The half carafe of wine was also very good. The service was very... More
