Ordered the gambas al pil pil as a tapas dish. For €8.95 and "pil pil" with chile I expected it to be a larger portion than 5 measly bland prawns in a pool of butter

Hi, we visited Ivans today for tapas. Previously we have had many lovely lunches in this restaurant. Today we had Prawns Pil Pil and Scallops Gratin. Both were priced at €9.50 each. 5 prawns and 2 scallops were served. I am a coeliac but unfortunately they do not have gluten free bread and I'd forgotten to bring some with me. The food was very good but I really feel that charging €9.50 for 5 prawns and 2 scallops is totally over the top.

good food..good wine and very nice surroundings! Very good for a quiet dinner around Howth, Ireland. Just 15minutes away from Malahide.

Sad to read some other reviews which didn't experience such great food and speedy service in an obviously popular restaurant.One of the very best fish meals I've had.
A superbly cooked LEMON SOLE.
The Owner/Manager is full of smiling personality!
Excellent value in every way.....with so very friendly staff.This place is as the title says,SIMPLY THE BEST. I cannot put it all into words, you've just got to go pay a visit but beware, it gets very busy on Sunday.
God Bless them all..........
