A super sunny breakfast outdoors with the best view in Malahide. A real treat Sabrina, Laura and colleagues. Extend outdoors to be bookable if possible to avail of new rules. Love it.

Great location, great food, great service. The only concern was the noise level, specifically the music. Too loud to have a normal conversation. We did ask to have it turned down, and wait staff happily obliged. We will be back.

Our waitress was really lovely and attentive. A few of the staff even sang happy birthday to my son when bringing out his dessert! I've marked the food down as my wrap was a bit cold when I got it. Lovely location for a family celebration though.

Booked online here for 11:30am slot.... Got told when we arroved we would only have table for 40 mins. Food had only arrived five minutes and We were being told they needed the table back in 5 mins. We stood up in Q to pay and hostess took our payment in the q. was only when we asked for receipt we realised we were charged wrong order. Spent iver thirty euro on food we had to rush eat.... emailed company website to complain and no response and probably wont get one

I would hands down recommend Gourmet Food Parlour, from the initial outset my experience has been nothing but a pleasure. I booked the breakfast through OpenTable and put in a special request as it was my sister's birthday and asked them to do something for her. On the day, the manager called me to confirm the booking and wanted to make sure they had something prepared for her. The food was exceptional and the service was second to none! Brilliant experience and they will definitely be seeing me again!

Lovely setting overlooking the sea. Great choice on menu..unfortunately they seemed to have no fish left. Therefore, no fish pie and no prawns for the thai curry. This may have been because it was later in the day. Child portions are a little small too..apart from that, we enjoyed. Food was very tasty and staff very friendly. We'll try again another day

Thanks for the feedback Ian. We're sorry to hear that the service was slow on the day of your visit. To comply with Covid-19 guidelines and reduce the risk of a spread, we're running at a reduced capacity since reopening, which applies to our staff too. Please be assured we're constantly working with the teams to ensure high service levels aren't sacrificed during these times. We hope you'll give us another chance in the not-too-distant future.
