Must pop in if you are passing through Howth, great food and the fish is so fresh, sometimes there can be a que but the orders are taken in advance on the q so your food is ready

This was our first meal in Ireland and it was great. Not much atmosphere in the restaraunt but they had the best fish of all the places we tried on our trip. We sat out on the harbour wall to eat and totally enjoyed it.

What a fantastic find in Howth! Chips with a choice of fish is a must after a stroll. Even saw seals in the harbour. What a shame you can't sit down in there.

I purposely waited till I had walked all around Howth and had worked up an appetite before getting my fish and chips. It was so worth the wait! There was a line, but it goes quickly. The fish was fresh, hot, flaky white an mouthwatering yummy! If you make the trip to Howth, Beshoffs Brothers is a must!!

I bought fish and chips and it was quite good and a satisfying portion of potatoes but the fish looked bigger than it was because it had too much flour!it would be better and more tasteful with a smaller amount of flour around !!

We'd come to Howth from Dublin, for a nice walk and bumped into a local who recommended Beshoffs to us.......thank goodness we bumped into him! This was quite possibly the best fish and chips (haddock) I've ever had! The batter was incredible, the chips perfect and good value for money! Even the birds who ate the scraps thought so too!...

This place was disappointing. The service was just terrible. The server/attendant was either in a bad mood or just confused or something else. The fish is good. It really is but it certainly is not the "best fish & chips" Not even close.

Took my family out for a 300 euro meal last night...Was pushed out the door from start to finish....The gentleman, who i think was the manager (black hair and black glasses) was obnoxious and disgustingly rude, the tone he talked to us was a disgrace...When i mentioned it to one of the waitresses, she totally agreed with me and said...
