Had initially gone to the Gourmet Food Parlour back in Januaury and the experience had not been the best. However after speaking with the manager we decided to give it another try and I am so glad that we did as it was a completely different experience the second time around. The food and service were great and the atmosphere was very relaxed and chilled out-there was no rushing to get back tables or any of that lark and the food was served in very good time. I have to say that we had a very enjoyable evening and I would highly recommend this place if you just want to chill out with some good food and wine. It seems that they have ironed out any teething problems that they had. We will definitely be back soon.

Geisha Restaurant & Bar (Malahide)
Marina Village, Malahide, Malahide, Dublin

Have been here a couple of times and it really is a lovely place with great food and great staff. Would highly recommend though would love to see it busier. Maybe if they did a good early bird it would bring in more people. Regardless its great restaurant with quality food.

Gourmet Food Parlour Malahide
Gannon Park, Coast Road , North Dublin, Malahide, Dublin

Unfortunately we found our experience at the Gourmet Food Parlour very disappointing. We had bought a voucher for the evening tapas and went along with a very open mind. It started off well with a great setting and the arrival of our first two courses which were fine (not anything to write home about but fine). Unfortunately from there on in it went downhill. We had to wait nearly an hour and a half from the time we had finished our first course to the time our second arrived and even when they arrived we didn't get everything. Again the food was okay but not amazing. We were not the only ones-nearly every table in the restaurant were complaining. I understand things happen and restaurants have bad nights but the waiting staff were really badly trained. Instead of going around and clearing the tables, explaining to the customers that there were problems in the kitchen and that their food would be delayed they hid away behind the counter cleaning glasses while people were left looking hungarily at their empty dirty plates. When our tapas finally arrived we were one dish short.This was my dish as the other two were for my partner. When we said it to the waiter he looked confused-it transpired that they had given it away to the table next to us. Another 15 minute wait and I was then informed that the last serviing of what I ordered had fallen on the floor and would I get something else instead. The staff dealt with the whole situation quite ineffectively. On the plus side the live music was great and its a lovely setting. Unfortunately there are too many great restaurants in Malahide which offer fantastic food and service for us to give this place another try.

We also took advantage of the menupages deal and are so glad we did. This place is a real gem. We booked a table at 5.30 on a Friday evening as we were going to the theatre at 7.30. We were the only people there as most of the tables were coming in at 7.30. However despite being the only people in the restaurant we never once felt uncomfortable. This was all down to the Staff who really are some of the nicest that we have encountered. They clearly are proud of the food that they are serving and are so friendly and good natured. The food itself was gorgeous though maybe abit seasoned for my liking. However this is only a small complaint. The amuse bouche was a fab touch and would bring a smile to anyones face. Although we were on a deal the menu was not that expensive and for the quality of food we would recommend this place to anyone and will defiantly be back in the near future.
