Nice restaurant good positioning with sea view friendly staff we had lunch taste menu good value
We eat here regularly for lunch and dinner. Food is unfailingly and consistently really good. Staff are warm and professional. A great spot for a night out
Waited quite a while from sit down to the order being taken. Place was not busy at that time 12.30 - 12.45 it did get busy later otherwise service was good and food was interesting and good
Excellent food and service as always however the portion of Monkfish I got at a price point of -€25 was quite frankly beyond belief! I thought they had forgotten to put the rest on the plate!!! I love the restaurant but I was sorely disappointed this time around.
Food was nice but choice on lunch special menu wasn't great. (3 of each course). I definitely expected more fish/seafood options. Had a lovely tasty mocktail. Wouldn't recommend lunch special menu
Excellent food and service. Beautiful view. A bit cold at our table under roof light.
Lovely restaurant and great food and love the free kids option for Mondays
What a hidden gem amazing food n staff so friendly
Nice restaurant with great views. Calamari to start with fish & chips to follow. Calamari was good quality served with a delicious chickpea & fish broth. Oil needed changing as the fish while very good quality was covered in a greasy batter with a dark yellow hue. Staff were fine if a little disinterested. Chips were terrible, it was like they had been refried from earlier in the day, heavy, greasy & dark brown.
Well prepared fish . Good value
Excellent choice of seafood on offer at a reasonable price. Would go again. Friendly staff
Beautiful food and great atmosphere and restaurant.
Good food, good service. Thought is was a bar and restaurant but just a restaurant with lots of drink options.
Great birthday lunch in Fishbone, with singing from the staff 😁
Fresh fish, beautifully cooked. Serving well paced and pleasant.
We’ll be back!
We had a Rewarding Times voucher that cost me €62 and fo that we had chowder and piri piri prawns as starters, then we both had fillets of John Dory with fennel and cabbage slaw and double cooked chips, then i had ice cream and my partner had sticky pudding all washed down with a carafe of Picpoul white wine which provided us with three decent glasses each. It was gorgeous, fantastic value, we will be back.
Quite disappointing experience after reading all the good reviews. Very long waiting time between a starter and a main course. Nobody approached between the courses to explain the delay or ask if all was ok. Found a hair on the side of a bread platter. Didn't return as was very hungry but the appetite was gone. Chicken wings too salty and one was burned. Fish and chips and seafood chowder just average. At least the price was right for this type of food. Bathrooms upstairs clean but broken seat and no water in a tap if flushing a toilet. Didn't feel clean and cozy. There was constant breeze from outside. The atmosphere and design up to an individual taste. There are much better places in Dublin within the same price range.
Gorgeous food, exciting and healthy menu, lovely views, friendly professional staff, great value. I'll be back to try brunch menu too
Highly recommend this quirky quaint restaurant.
Food was lovely
Staff were friendly
Wonderful Dinner for 3, 1 vegetarian and 2 fish dinners all were excellent, sat upstairs which is lovely and cosy.
We had a lovely lunch at Fishbone, food is always good
Another visit to this little gem of a restaurant! Never fails to disappoint - excellent seafood, lovely customer service and a nice buzzy atmosphere - and all at a reasonable price point. Will defo be back again !!
Love this restaurant. Staff and food amazing.
I’d heard Fishbone had a good choice of healthy food options which is why I decided to give it a try, and it didn’t disappoint. The soup of the day was a spicy veg and was loaded with delicious vegetables. For my main I had the salmon tacos with quinoa which were also delicious. The waitress happily substituted the fries which came with it, for sweet potato fries at my request. The children’s options were also very good and all of my family really enjoyed it.
The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and we had a wonderful evening. We’ll definitely be back.
Food is always really good but the service can be a tad slow
Visited Fishbone on a Thursday at 12.45pm and was surprised at how empty it was. As It was mid January this would probably account for this. We had the Taste Lunch menu and since my previous visit I had been looking forward to the open seafood lasagne. I was slightly disappointed by it as it didn't taste as I remember but this could have been down to my taste buds being off due to a cold. The soup was really great and we both really enjoyed this starter. My friend's main course was a success and she was really happy with it. We both had herbal tea and I had a glass of Savignon Blanc. The wine list was really good and if it had been in the evening we would have enjoyed a bottle of wine. I will revisit but for their early evening menu instead.
great meal with my wife here on Saturday. will be back
Went for the early catch menu as advertised on their website "Wednesday - Saturday until 6.30pm". Told this wasn't available, that it was a mistake on the website. So we were offered the a la carte menu at 2pm on a Saturday. Calamari were very soggy and the shellfish pot was nearly 85% mussels which was difficult to finish. 25 Euros for the shellfish pot when it was mainly mussels was a bit steep. Korean Monkfish Tacos was good as was the Prawn Pil Pil starter. Staff were friendly.
Amazing food, service and location!
Fabulous food in a great location. The fish lovers were well catered for with beautiful shellfish and catch of the day options while those not so keen on fish enjoyed a chicken curry, pasta, etc. The deserts were also gorgeous (with plenty of spoons so everyone could share!!)
High Chair for baby was very dirty.
Sesfood Chowder was not very rich but the service was great, the place is very cozy and fish and chips was very very good.
Lovely experience for out of country guests for Christmas on arrival from airport
Gorgeous food, great service, will definitely be back!!
Loved the new menu, service was good. Will definitely be back soon
Pleasant surprise...fish good and cocktails enjoyable. Enjoyed the chowder, and chefs choice of fish. Portions we're good and left happy belly
I booked our table a month in advance and rang Fishbone to request a nice table at the window as it was our Christmas night and the last time we were there we were squashed down the back near the kitchen.I don’t know what you have to do to get a nice table and we were squashed again even though I booked well in advance. We were very disappointed and we won’t be back again. A very squashed feeling in the restaurant which is a pity as the food was lovely.
Excellent food and service. One of the best restaurants in Dublin
Lovely sea side fish restaurant serving wonderful food at very reasonable prices.
I brought my husband here for his 30th birthday and we had a wonderful time. the seafood is delicious - I had prawns pil pil and seabass, and my husband had the chowder and seafood lasagne. The desserts were also fantastic. It was all so fresh and delicious. The staff were fantastic and gave us complimentary baileys when they found out it was my husbands birthday.
