This is a small (some say cramped but I say atmospheric) restaurant with wonderful food, thoughtful service and a lovely wine list. With an allergy to contend with our host went out of his way to make ours a great night and clean plates all round proves this really is the hidden gem of Malahide.

Lalis Restaurant
Strand Road, Portmarnock, Portmarnock, Dublin

Lali\'s has a really wonderful location and little competition nearby. The Italian fare is passable and reasonably priced but sadly they need to decorate and up their game condsiderably in the kitchen to stop me from continuing 5 mins further to the many, better and varied options in Malahide.

Chez Sara Wine Bar
3 Old Street, North Co. Dublin, Malahide, Dublin

When deciding to meet up with some friends wanting to have a quiet corner to chat in Chez Sara sprang to mind and we had a table for four in the back room. The location is tight and cosy but packed full of character, the table made of old wine boxes a novel idea. Often when eating with good friends we lose focus of the food but not this time, 3 courses and 4 people gave way to 12 spotless plates! Including a bottle of wine and a few beers the bill was just shy of €190 for 4.

Kajjal
7 The Green, North Co. Dublin, Malahide, Dublin

Having been here previously and loved our expectations of this restaurant are always high and we are never let down. The food is always gorgeous with the only problem being that I love one dish (Mughlai Murghi) so much that I am almost afraid to try anything else! Atmosphere is cosy and pleasant with the staff extremely helpful. If I was to be very fussy I would say that they could do with a few more beer options on the menu and that the staff are a little too busy at peak times. Minor complaints in Malahide's best restaurant!

Siam Thai (Malahide)
1 The Green, North Dublin, Malahide, Dublin

My first mid week visit to Siam Thai in a long time and I found they are doing a "night owl" offering, sunday-wed special. While the options on that menu were a little limited I found some of my favourites and €25 for 2 courses is a good deal with hearty portions and their fabulously flavoured food. The atmosphere was a bit flat, tacky Irish flags blue-tacked to the wall and the footy on the tv might have been killing the usual humm of conversation. The service though, as ever, was impeccably pleasant and swift. Now that I know about the new offers I might just slip back soon!

The Bistro at Ella
7 Main Street, Howth, Howth, Dublin

This cosy little restaurant has become a firm favourite with my wife and I, we like to sneak in midweek when the atmosphere is still bustling with a lovely personal service from the owner. The starters were both fab with the Kilkenny beef being a winner but the main course of prawns stole the show! A generous carafe of wine was very reasonably priced. A rich coffee finished off a dull Tuesday excellently.

Le Bon Crubeen
81-82 Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Pre theatre dinner of 3 courses served in under an hour and a half without rushing us was very impressive. The large wood panels are a little daunting and dull but were the only negative to a lovely meal. I had the guinea fowl terrine while my wife enjoyed potted pork, she won that round. The pork for the main course had been changed from the menu but the waiting staff offered some suggestions and kept us entertained throughout, the replacement braised beef was very tender and moist. Desert was a chocolate fondant for her and a warm banoffee pie for me and they were both fabulous, coffees followed swiftly and the bill was surprisingly pleasant. The whole time the staff were extremely attentive and kept us in perfect time for Act 1 without any rush. Will definately be back.
