Excellent food & service was particularly good
Very enjoyable evening - food was fantastic - would like to see a more extensive A La Carte menu.
We had a beautiful meal in Old Street again and created a tapas table for ourselves with their seafood starters. Food was fab especially the prawns, a must-try!! Gorgeous bottle of Pouilly Fume and few cocktails at the bar finished off a wonderful night. Great atmosphere and wonderfully friendly staff.
I love the food and libations at Old Street. I stopped in for a solo meal (the food where I was staying was...uninspired...so I made the drive over to Malahide). Food was great as ever, but sadly there was a large party seated adjacent to the bar seat where I was...and they were LOUD. Happily I had a set of headphones handy. I watched a documentary about Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Review while I ate a delicious meal and drank a yummy cocktail. Moral of this story? Always ask when booking whether there’s a party going on in the room where you’ll be seated...but also? Eat a meal at Old Street Cafe! It’s worth the drive!!
Tried the Friday Supper Club menu. Couldn’t fault anything. Good wine offered with the 3 course meal. Great service with a smile and good atmosphere in the restaurant. Will do that again!
I highly recommend Old Street for the excellent food and ambiance.
Great food and lovely welcome, Matthew is a real star he looked after us and was an engaging and bright young man, a real asset to the restaurant...ray wing and red snapper were very good.
Felt food was a little overpriced. Poor range of menu choices. Little to no atmosphere.
The restaurant interior is nice, stylishly decorated, spacious, clean toilets etc. the service was quite good too, but the food was really hit and miss. We were a party of 4, we got starter and main course and some dishes were good but some not. I ordered lamb pie, that had 3 small pieces of lamb and what it felt like a jar of marinated cocktail onions inside, considering that the place is pricey, you expect all dishes will be of same quality.
Lovely evening with family! Really nice Wine List, wonderful variety of menu selections. Our Vegetarian guest was very happy with the offerings and it was so nice for one of our party to enjoy a casual burger with chips while another ordered the Chefs' special of Ray Wing - different ends of the spectrum but both done perfectly. The service was outstanding, Laura was very thoughtful and looked after us as very well. Desserts were amazing! The restaurant was quite busy so it was a bit loud and full of energy, but we didn't mind too much!
So fab as always! Thanks for such a great day & for taking such great care of us!
Evening meal for a young family of 4. Delicious meal with excellent service. Will be back
Great night. Haven’t been back since the opening few weeks but it was a fantastic return. Food was lovely, wine and after dinner cocktail nice too, restaurant was busy but comfortable, service was a bit slow but probably put down to how busy it was and the price was very reasonable. A must try and we will definitely be back.
Overall lovely experience, however some of waiting staff are trained/experienced but it’s clear some are just hired hands coolers kids without training or experience.
Would return for food quality & ambience
First time there and very impressed with the service and new staff that had just started that week. Good selection of starters and main course.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit & already have sung its praises to other visitors in Malahide as well as friends etc. Food excellent & value 2nd to none! Thank you!
Fantastic evening, really enjoyed it, fabulous food, very attentive staff but not intrusive. Highly recommend!
First impressions were good, unfortunately the experience quickly soured. Cocktails were poorly crafted, food arrived extremely late and was unacceptable. Staff apologized but informed me they were taking care of a large party upstairs.
Food was good, service good without being overpowering.
We have been to Old Street on several occasions and each time we go its a wonderful time!! I absolutely love it in there.. my husband and I went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Lovely drinks and fantastic value for dinner! I highly recommend for a night out with friends or that special someone.
Great night had by all. The restaurant was buzzing and had a great atmosphere. We were well looked after and all 5 of us had a great meal, great wine followed by fantastic desserts. Thumbs up all round.
I brought my Mum to Old Street for Mother's Day lunch, and had a really enjoyable afternoon. From the moment we walked in the door, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Food was beautiful in taste and presentation, it was a great value menu for Mother's Day and a really good selection to choose from. My mum was really happy with her afternoon and that's really what it's all about given the day !
Thanks to all at Old Street, I would have no hesitation in recommending your restaurant.
We had a wonderful meal at Old Street Malahide on Sunday - very warm & friendly staff, amazing food and ambience .. highly recommend it
We had a lovely lunchtime meal on Mother’s Day including a complimentary cocktail for Mom! Children’s menu is a little limited, I’d like the option to pay for e.g a half portion from adult menu. Service was good, though meals were served quickly between each other even after I asked for a few minutes before dessert was served (we had a 2 hr slot but still had lots of time left) so no real need for the rush.
We have been in Old street a few times now. It’s my favorite restaurant in Malahide. You really feel you are somewhere special when you are there.
Yes, I would recommend Old Street to a friend.
However, this point may not be the fault of the restaurant but the markdown was due to the fact that kids coats, hats and napkins were strewn across the floor when we tried to get to our table.
Through no fault of the restaurant, the parents should have kept a better eye on their children as they were jumping and screaming whilst we were trying to enjoy our meal.
Food & drinks all excellent. slight issue with service, although staff very pleasant, in that we were left waiting for drinks at bar despite glasses empty and again during meal waiting for dessert menus... staff seemed to disappear upstairs. Other than that excellent night.
lovely food and service, noise level from neighbouring tables only negative
Lovely comfortable restaurant with delicious food , amazing service & fun friendly staff ! A cozy old world venue, renovated from cottages of previous local Malahide families! The choice of menus & price points makes this a true delight of a place to share with friends & families. Thanks for a great night Old Street !
2nd time in old street. This time we were celebrating our engagement. We were brought two flutes of bubbly. Food was excellent and the 'pretty in pink' cocktail was a mind blower. Good buzz for a Wednesday night and 1/2 price bottles of wine. Great evening.
We were out for a family meal to celebrate a birthday. It was perfect with young children. The food was delicious, couldn’t fault it. Recommend 100%
Lovely setting, great location, beautiful building and interior and the staff were lovely - laid back but attentive and chatty. But the food was poor. We had the scallops and tuna as starters. The scallops were overcooked and swimming in a sauce of balsamic and onion - way too much sauce and a shame the scallops were just overdone. The tuna dish really looked the part but very bland - not real flavour coming off any of the ingredients on this lovely looking dish.
We had the chicken with lentils and mash and the turbot dishes for our mains, again no flavour jumping off the plate. Way too much lentils poured over the mash. The piri piri chicken came across as having no piri piri at all, but just as being blackened chicken. Edible but again very bland and therefore heavy with the amount of lentil and mash. This is not a cheap restaurant. Including a bottle of Chablis, couple of cocktails and some table water -180 euro. The bill had more bite in it than any of the dishes, unfortunately!
5 star meal, fantastic service and lovely relaxed atmosphere. Can't recommend enough -our favourite restaurant for all the family.
We found the food from a taste point was above average. The price was on the high side for what you got. No sides included in price of main. A few dishes were a bit small. Did not see this as a Michelin Guide restaurant. With that being said the service cannot be faulted in the slightest. Warm reception upon entering the restaurant and this continued throughout the evening.
Thank you all we had a really lovely afternoon, we are a party of 6 , we meet up every 3 months , we enjoyed your restaurant so much , we hope to book again in the near future. Personally I’d love to see a chicken dish on the lunch menu , hope this is helpful.
Had an early bird which provided a really good offering. Cured salmon starter was delicious. I enjoyed the burger for main. Sides and bread were excellent. Nicest soda bread I’ve had in I don’t know how long. Ambience was lovely- nicely busy for a Tuesday. A €10 supplement for the steak was a little steep in my view but apart from that, this is probably the best value early bird in Malahide at the moment. Will look forward to going back.
Thoroughly enjoyed our family meal in old street last Sunday evening, food was delicious & fun was had. I rated service at 3 stars because our main course, we felt was slow coming out to us, but our actual server was excellent, a lovely pleasant, friendly girl. Overall, I will return & I will recommend to friends, thank you 👍🏻
Food was lovely . Starters were expensive . Staff were wonderful. Main course really good. Dessert was divine !
Lovely atmosphere, great cocktails, food was delicious. Service is ok, a little slow. But still had a lovely evening and could not fault the food. Thank you.
Food, and atmosphere was super. Only down side was the volume of the singer playing that evening meant you couldn’t hear very well, but apart from that a super evening.
