Cannot get enough of this place. Harbour setting and excellent atmosphere all nights of the week. Presumably this is helped no end by one of the best bar food menus in the country. Options for all tastes, with efficient, friendly service. Arrive early to avoid queues.

FACILITIES

Luscious Dublin Bay prawns, succulent oysters, melt in the mouth mussels, mouth-watering mackerel…just some of the delicious seafood you’ll find on menus around Ireland.

Irish people love to eat seafood when dining out; in fact, unlike our European neighbours, we eat more seafood outside the home. Perhaps this is a testament to the quality of our seafood restaurants. And for many visitors, a trip to Ireland wouldn’t be complete without sampling a few oysters and sinking a pint of the black stuff.

Dined here last night with friends. Knew it had a good name for fish. We all had some - hake, prawns, calamari and had the turbot which was fresh and very good. I had pavlova for desert and it was lovely and light. The cutlery was not set at each person's place - would prefer it in place. I wonder what Francis Brennan would say!! Will be back again as it has a lovely location.

lovely evening, great food - very convivial atmos. our pre-dinner bloody mary's were perfect. and our starters were bliss: we shared the pate and toast; and then their legendary chowder. mains were equally impressive (warm goats' cheese salad; and the chilli with a couple of sides) - delicious and plenty of it! enjoyed the evening immensely - have to say ta stoops!

Visited stoop for lunch the other day and had a very interesting time. The place was very busy when we arrived and had to wait to be seated. I thought this was a good sign but the place emptied quick enough and the service plummeted. We were seated shortly after and within the space of one minute three different staff members came to our table to ask our orders, each being told that we needed more time. Herself ordered the scamp with chips and I ordered the sea bass with savoury potatos, with a plate of calamari to share as a starter. The calamari was very tasty and the batter very crispy and we weren't left waiting too long for our mains. Unfortunately after our mains arrived, we waited fifteen minutes and still there was no sign of our sides. We had to bring this to the attention of the staff who didn't once come to ask if we were enjoying our untouched meals. By the time the sides were brought our mains were nearly cold, and the uninspiring sides weren't exactly worth waiting for. Otherwise, the scampi was fluffy and very tasty, and my seabass was succulent and well seasoned. I decided to try a dessert and chose the chocolate orange tart, but it was more chocolate and alcohol than chocolate and orange. If we return, we will stick to the seafood and lower our expectations of everything else.

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
