Had great food in Raffs last week. Decor is fabulous and the service could not be better. Try the fish cakes for a starter. They are divine! Other starters in our party were the seafood chowder and the chicken wings. All reports were great. The fillet steak on the stone was a new experience for me and definitely the best steak I have ever eaten. Other mains were the seafood tower and the stuffed chicken breast. Once again all were complimented. Only one in the party able for the dessert but loved the apple crumble. Will definitely be back!

It is great to read your lovely comments, we are delighted to hear that all of your party enjoyed their meal. We do pride ourselves on sourcing locally the best quality products and all of our dishes are freshly prepared and cooked to order. It is especially nice to receive some feedback on our steak on the stone, we feel it is an excellent concept and gives our guests the opportunity to cook their steak exactly to their liking. Thank you again and hope you pay us a visit again soon.

Ate here 2 Sundays ago, was my second visit. The first visit didn't make a great impression but we decided to give it another go. Have to say the service was excellent as was the food and good value too. The only thing was at 5.30pm two men started performing on the stage. The music was so loud we couldn't hear each other speak and the style of music felt like a bad Daniel o'donnell tribute act. We would have stayed longer but the music was too much to bear so we left as soon as we paid the bill. I'm not sure blaring out country music at 5.30pm is the best way to get people in the door, it literally drove us out.

Thank you for your comments and for returning to Raffs’ on the corner for a second visit. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the food and service. I am disappointed that we were not aware of your situation as we would have been more than happy to relocate you to an alternative table in another area where you could continue your conversation and extend your stay.

Our live music on a Sunday afternoon is fast becoming a popular feature with families and the over 25 age group. Our resident entertainers provide middle of the road and popular standards music and regularly invite guests from the audience to perform. We understand that this particular genre may not be to everyone’s taste and we also host an open Mic night on Friday’s for local up and coming singer/songwriters. Alternatively on a Saturday night we have rock bands perform. Please let us know your preferences on your next visit and we hope to see you soon at Raff’s on the corner.

Manager.

What a gem! On holidays from Texas and was taken by friends to Raffs on the Corner in Skerries. Had wonderful fish cakes for a starter followed by a fabulous fillet steak on the stone. The service was excellent and the ambience fantastic. There was even live music ! What a great night.
