Top Pakastani food

I love going here on a Sunday,when they have a special lunch menu where you get a choice of a glass of red or white wine or a bellini,plus a choice of 4 starters and 4 mains,for Euro 24.95. The food is nothing short of spectacular and there is always a great buzz to the place. Top tip - booking is essential and request a booth,to the right,as you walk in.

First bad experience in my own home town

I'm a local lad, walked in without a reservation as the place was v quiet. Explained we were only looking for a drink (had a reservation elsewhere in 50 mins). I was left fairly red-faced when Colin Fassnidge's stunt double loudly barked at us over the burnt salmon he was dropping on/off a plate that "guys this is not a pub. You need to order some food! You're not just gonna sit here and drink", much to the amusement and giggles of some of the punters spaced out inside. Open mouthed shock on the faces of others. Fair point lad, but a bit of eye contact maybe next time when you're burning me. And no need to deliver the line with such relish (ironically dished out well, nice and sour, and a decent portion to boot). Fairly embarrassing moment - think Vivienne shopping in Pretty Woman and you're on the right track. Wouldn't go back if you paid me a million pounds.Got home and had to google the definition of "wine bar" later that night to make sure I wasn't losing my mind. Suggest "Colin" does the same...Dear local lad,Fist of all I like to apologize for hurting your feelings when I didn't let you have ONLY drinks in my restaurant.As I tried to explain to you on the night ( obviously you didn't understand my foreign accent or maybe you were to busy been Pretty Woman) i have a wine licence that by law alouds me to sell wine to customers ONLY with food consumption, that is why I told you, this is not a pub you need to order some food so I can serve you drinks.This is the law and legislation in you native country of Ireland and it is the same everywhere in the republic even in your home town, so next time you google the definition of any thing also check the legislation, because as my grand father use to say "knowledge is food for the brain".Anyway I like to wish you from the bottom of my hart an happy new year and a very,very, busy 2019 so you may have less time to write this kind of nonsense.RegardsThe foreign lad that barked at you (Colin)

Al Fresco

Reviewed By BradleyBad1 - Dublin, Ireland

Excellent Value, Quality Food and a great Atmosphere.

A warm greeting gave us that 'Come in, we've been expecting you' type feeling. Our (2) kids were immediately looked after with colouring books and pencils quickly followed with drinks requirements for the adults.We chose from the Early Bird menu which was quite extensive and not overly loaded with "Supplements".Service was snappy without being hurried or overly attentive. Starters were fantastically fresh and extremely generous. The Calamari was outstanding (both my kids' favourite).Main course were no less appealing and generous. I have to mention that the Kids's Fish and Chips was top-notch as I had to help them out post Calamari starter.The overall atmosphere was intimate without feeling you are too close to neighbouring diners. The Service was spot on for speed, attentiveness and interest in your table. The food was fantastic, fresh, perfectly cooked and on the challenging side for portion size.If I lived in Malahide I would visit every week!Thanks for making our evening.

Best Indian food in Dublin!

I visited Jaipur Malahide last month for a dinner with my husband. It was the best Indian food I've tried in Dublin, and probably the best I've every had. This place is not like your usual Indian takeaway. The plates are beautiful and I found that the dishes were much more refined than what I expected. We liked the fact that there were plenty of vegetarian options. She shared some amazing prawns for starter. I had the Paneer tikka masala and my husband got the Tandoori chicken for mains. Both were absolutely delicious, and the service was spotless. I really recommend this place!

Yummy Chowder

Having cycled out to Malahide I found myself slightly peckish and for some reason fancied a chowder. Enquiring as to where might be a good place to stop, a few locals recommend that I should visit the Fish Shack. Pleased to say I wasn’t disappointed. Dave and his staff were both attentive and charming. The chowder was good and very tasty. Perfect portion size. I also liked their outdoor area which must be great whenever the sun shines.All in all, I’m happy to recommend the Fish Shack and look forward to returning and tasting their scampi. Now, fingers crossed that the wind is at my back for the homeward spin...
