As my wife was going for dinner with her colleagues, myself and my daughter wanted to have some nice seafood dinner. We called sea bank and was no problem to accommodate us. My daughter went for the haddock and chips and really enjoyed it. I had the warm goat cheese salad and the John Dory as main course. Sooooo nice.... More

We visited the Seabank in January with some business contacts from the US who had been staying in the city center. We had a vegan, a gluten and dairy intolerant person and also a person who favoured non spicy or 'plain' food. I knew it would be a big ask to find someplace that would cater for all but after...

Lovely cosy restaurant. Good atmosphere, great food and wine. I was on my own and not left on my own. The owner/manager engaged with me and made my visit a very pleasant one. Highly recommended.

My German colleague suggested this restaurant. He is a foodie, and he has been to the restaurant many times. He raved about their food, and he was right. The waitress (owners daughter) said that the lobster was caught that day, and they purchased in the Howth fishing village only two hours before. I ordered it with garlic butter. It was... More

On a recent first time visit to the Seabank Bistro I was astonished when the time came to pay the bill....35 euros for a three course set menu per person! The starter of goat's cheese was minimalist!The Cod fish and Apple Strudel dessert were both very fresh.Service was good. What a shame that menus of this 'ordinary fare' are raised... More

We visited this restaurant following a visit to Malahide Castle and Gardens and the 15mins walk in the cold wind was worth it! Based on previous reviews we thought it is worth a try and were not disappointed. It is a small cosy restaurant, with a very nice interior design. The food was amazing too, we took the chicken soup... More
