I have eaten here before and it was pleasant enough However on this occasion ... The restaraunt was empty with the excepetion of 2 other tables occupied on a Friday night! I booked a table for myself and a good friend from school we ordered starters and main course. Starters came out prawn tempura & garlic mushrooms and that's just what you got, no garnish side salad we even joked about it being the euro saver menu!! The best was yet to come, Main course, BBQ burger with side of sauce, no salad not a sniff of a tomato nothing but a poor burger and 2 plain buns not even toasted! The other main Cod goujons well goodness me I could have refried the side of chips in the oil coming off the batter on the goujons, absolutely disgusting and I had to ask for tartare sauce to accompany it, I just about got the fish down minus the batter and felt the urge to tell them I was NOT satisfied with the dish, I was immediately offered a free desert but declined, they did however take the fish off the final bill but alas did not make up for the dreadful food we received on our visit, a visit I will never make again I'm afraid.

We visited here last night and I have to say well done to the owner of the harvest for this one, Balbriggan was in dire need of somewhere like this, I could not have faulted my experience here at all, The service / staff were so nice, pleasent and obliging, the food was delicious and the price of 69euro for two 3 course meals, 2 quarter bottles of wine and not forgetting my cosmopolitan was fantastic in my view, so 5 out of 5 for this one, we will definitely be back soon. Try the baby ribs, melt in the mouth and the fruit cocktail in the knickerbocker glory was real fruit, not the tinned stuff!!!

The Red Bank House & Restaurant
5-7 Church Street, Skerries, Skerries, Dublin

Lovely restaurant with very friendly staff, however I was looking forward to having some sea bass and they had none so my next choice was rack of lamb and they had none??? At 9.00pm on a Saturday night you would imagine a restaraunt like this would have all dishes available or at least tell the customers before they order. Other than that I had fillet steak and it was nice as did my partner. Not enough veg though and the desserts were fantastic.

The Orchid Restaurant
51B Church Street, Skerries, Skerries, Dublin

Ate here last Saturday evening. Food was only average. We were rushed through our starter / main course with staff constantly hovering around. The waitress came over once finished our main course and said, " Do you want deserts"??? Will not repeat the experience.

Pasta Pizza
54 Strand Street, Skerries, Dublin

WE have visited Pasta pizza on a few occasions. This particular night there were 4 adults. We were seated at a table that was too small for 4 adults in our opinion. The food is always very nice and the service is always good. Will return again and again however if there are more than 3 people I would be requesting to be seated at a larger table.
