I've been visiting the Tower since 2008 and I've never seen the men as bad as of late. There literally only a handful of options for a main course when the menu used to be quite extensive. As always, avoid when there may be a wedding on (Friday/Saturdays before the wedding party take their seats) or you'll be in for an interesting and busy experience. The staff are their usually lovely selves but are let down by the menu options.

Great views from the lounge bar. Food freshly made to order. REAL chips. Friendly service. Only niggle went for a walk around the cliffs after lunch and obviously there's a problem with some the staff remembering who the customers are....

Great place to stop off for a bite after a walk on the beautiful beach an you can still look out at the Irish Sea. Outdoor seating available (weather permitting). A varied menu with lots of daily specials & friendly service. My only complaint would be that my companion is coeliac and when she asked if there was flour/wheat in a few of the menu items (soup, casserole) that waiter didn’t seem to know but after some prompting did ask in the kitchen.

I just love this place, every time we go to donabate with the kids, the patio area is great for us. The view is just fantastic, even her mother likes it.....!!!! I heard they are thinking of opening up a children's play area for next summer. We always find the food good, the staff are just brill, always the same friendly faces.

This is very hit a miss, I have eaten here on many different times. I find that once the restaurant is busy or if the hotel is have a wedding reception the bar food gets worse. I eat here when I am in Donabate out of a lack of options but I would find it hard to recommend as one day the food is super but another day it could be very poor!

As a family function party of 15 we were very well catered for by the Waterside. The portions were generous and the service could not be faulted. Fantastic location on the beach when the sun comes out.

Good menu but the food is hit and miss. You can get a great meal and come out feeling like you got your money's worth or you can get a mediocre meal and come away feeling a bit ripped off. The setting makes it worth the gamble.

What a beautiful spot, I went there on Saturday and just before the rain! We sat out on the beach patio and enjoyed a few drinks and cod and chips (unbelievable by the way). Service was really god and the owner came out and chatted to us, it is a very busy place and will be sure to go back, one of the nicest places to be in North Dublin! They have entertainment at the weekend so might pop down again.

A stunning location, just on Donabate beach, could be ideal for a Sunday meal, if only it wasn’t packed with families and screaming kids! A bit overpriced too. But sitting outside, having your meal, and looking at the sea, is something really special that makes it worth

Myself and my partner visited the Waterside today for some light lunch, at first the menu looked quite tempting (bar/bistro), then when I tried to turn the page they were stuck together, I would rather not like to think with what, we then ordered two chicken baguette's which were deplorable, the chicken was very thin and looked like it had been deep fried into a hard rock state, we called the waitress and complained, we returned the food, along with the over cooked chips I must add. I cannot fault the waitress as she did apologise and the manager offered us what we wanted off the menu, but as I am sure many would agree at that point you just want to leave, and we did. We will not be returning... and will not be recommending the place. I mean if they cannot cook some chicken what is the other food like.

I ate in the bar/bistro last week and the food was quite good, it was the service that was terrible. I feel sorry for the owner of this place, which will probably go out of business due to his/her staff. I have never seen so many staff trying their hardest to do nothing. The avoid the customers like the plague and you had to keep going to the bar to get any service. They avoided eye contact with any potential customers. The man behind us had his jacket on the back of his chair. He was feeding a newborn baby and his jacket fell on the floor I waited for some of the staff to pick it up. 20 minutes later they were still walking bye it and looking at it. I went over myself and picked it up. I really liked the food but the service was so bad it was irritating and therefore I would not recommend it. They need floor manager to sort the staff out.
