I was taken there for dinner by some locals. We walked passed a number of restaurants, all empty and was pleastly surprised to walk into the crowded Brass Monkey. Clearly the management have got the balance just right, I would call it bisto style. A varied menu of fish, meat and vegetarian available. The service was quick and with a smile. With drinks the bill for 3 came to about £30 per head. Despite being outside Dublin, Howth is easy and quick to get on the Dart. The restaurant is a short walk from Howth station, the end of the line.

Just love this place. Went up on Sunday to celebrate my aunts birthday. Ages of the group ranged from 4yrs old to 66 years old and all of us had a great time as always.
2 course special for €22 which is excellent value for the quality and the portion sizes. You just HAVE to have the Pork Belly - it is top class.
Yet again Brass Monkey you deliver on all counts. Value for money, excellent quality food, great service and not to mention the very important lolly pop for our 4 year old after he has eaten all his dinner!!
Will be back again soon

My husband and I made a quick trip out to Howth from Dublin on the DART train. We had heard about the great seafood in Howth. After walking around for a bit we were ready for 'linner' and popped into the Brass Monkey. We were not disappointed! Service was quite prompt and friendly. My husband ordered soup and salmon and I had the cod, which the special of the day. We were both so pleased with our choices, as the food was delicious. We hope to return again on subsequent trips to Dublin.

What a wonderful bistro, it is small and compact, but the food was wonderful...I had the Butternut squash tortellini and it was outstanding...the grilled shrimp bruschetta was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant even if you have to wait to be seated...

Had a super night here. Really cosy atmosphere, friendly helpful staff. Food was excellent although I only had 2 starters which were really generous portions. Hard to get in at the weekend. Advance booking is a must.
