it was a freezing evening and on a whim decided to stop here for a bite to ear, we had to wait a while for a table to free up but thats a good thing to me as it shows theres people eating there lots but it was a little quiet like eating in grandmaws :), it was nice and a fish lovers dream come true, I had the tiger prawns, my girlfriend had the chowder, there was decent service but a tad bit pricey, even though I'd go back maybe in the summer

Lovely food and a nice setting though the staff are terrible. Nobody was friendly at any point, no-one asked us did we want more food/drinks/etc. No-one asked us were we happy with our meals. The initial girl we met when booking a table was downright rude, so much so that we nearly didn't bother following through with our booking. Others here have mentioned how busy the restaurant is but to my mind that's no excuse for slow, shoddy service.

I have been to this resturant 3 or 4 times and on each occassion I have found the staff to be incredibly rude and unhelpful. The food is ok but very over-rated. I wont be returning.

I have to admit that I really do love the food in this restaurant. The standard is consistently high and I've never been disappointed. Last night I opted for the early bird menu which was good value. I had the paté which was fantastic as always and the cajun chicken linguine which was also very tasty. The service was good considering how busy the place was but dwindled slightly as the evening went on and we were waiting quite a long time before we could get someones attention to request the bill. Overall, this is a great spot in a great location.

Had lunch at Stoops again today. Those who comment that it's not cheap are correct - but then the prices are clearly noted on the menus so there's of course the option to go elsewhere if one prefers a cheaper lunch. I had the fish pie which was absolutely delicious and came with a choice of potato dishes - I chose the chips and they were cooked perfectly. For dessert I decided to have an Irish coffee which finished the meal off nicely. I'm never disappointed in the food at Stoops but the service could be described as lackluster.

Had lunch with my mother today. Very disappointed particularly with service and value for money which was particularly bad, 30 euro for lunch! , 2 coffees (2x3 euro), 2 glasses of house wine (2x7 euro) and SHARED an open sandwich - 4 half pieces of brown bread each with a topping of sea food (14.95!!!). Was hungry afterwards. The staff were not particularly helpful. We asked about soup, which seemed better value, but there were peppers in both the chowder and soup of the day. They didn't seem too bothered and were put out when we asked to share an open sandwich... Definitely wont be back. Shocking. Plus disappointed

We went here for lunch, I thought it was a bit expensive, €34 including dessert and coffee but with no wine or alcohol. The Calamari was terriffic, really light and tasty, with a delicious garlicy-chilli dipping sauce. The fish pie was fine, chips were not fresh cut. I had the baked ginger and lime cheesecake and couldnt get my spoon through the base, but the cheesecake part was really tasty. Finally a decaff moca was yumm

We visited stoop your head after a wave of recommendations from friends. This place was a warm, cosy contrast to the fab view of the harbour and elements you get through the large windows. We chose the mussels and calamari to start - the mussels and sauce were fab but the calamari, although tastey were a little overcooked with soggy batter. The traditional fish and chips were delicious and the pork cutlets in pepper sauce equally so. Our food came quickly even though the restaurant was packed to the with people even queuing at the door! The service was friendly and our bill was reasonable; overall we had a lovely evening at the place - we'll definatly return.

Lovely staff, great cosy atmosphere, and the food was simply gorgeous. I had the Dublin Bay Prawns and Rockabill Crab-claws in Garlic Butter, and my partner had the Large Mixed Seafood sambo. Everything was super fresh and tasty. I'm not a local and only came here due to a recommendation, but will definitely be back.
