    We arrived an hour early for our booking.. As there wasn't a table available the four of us were given very comfortable seating at the bar. After a glass of beautiful cold Rose wine we were led to our table where we were served delicious seafood. Superb service.Great ambiance. SB

    Very enjoyable lunch - great food and service. One small inconvenience: The upstairs toilets were out of order, so there was a long queue to use the only downstairs toilet.

    Our Table of 4 loved it. The fish was as always outstanding, fresh off the boat. Non fish eaters are catered for very well as well. The Asian chicken salad was lovely. Atmosphere is always buzzy but not too loud, Service excellent and the view out onto the Harbour is lovely especially on a nice summer evening. Highly recommended !

    I have been going to Stoop Your Head for a number of years now and I have never been disappointed by the quality of the food. Although I am not a fish over, the Cod Frites are in such a crispy batter and so fresh that I find myself ordering them again and again. I only hope that anybody thinking of eating there does not hesitate to give it a go. You will go back again and again. I travel from Portmarnock to visit this restaurant as it is one of the best in the region.

    I hadn't been here since BC (before Covid-19) and the food is as good as ever. Delicious Moules Marinière followed by a luscious fish pie for me with my wife having the paté and the prawns and crab claw dish.

    We sat out in the open air space - not on the pavement. The service was very friendly and super quick. We both had the cod dish with crumb crust and it was the nicest cod dish I think we ever had. My friend had little potatoes which he loved and I had so much cod I found it difficult to eat all my chips and left a few. The Americano coffee was good and strong, the milk on the side was sufficiently warm and the finishing touch of two little chocolates was an extra treat. Well done Stoop your Head! We will be back!

    Had a fabulous meal. The only complaint would be the goats cheese salad. Maybe I didn't read the menu correctly as it was a crunchy salad with lots of onion raw beets and cabbage and very little lettuce.
