    Poor service with a waitress looking and approaching the guests as it was the most horrible thing in the world. Food was OK, but not amazing. I can recommend the goat cheese starter. My main was the garlic shrimps, but they felt more cooked than fried…

    What I love most about Stoop your head is watching the sun set over Skerries harbour from your table, it's a memorable experience. The food is delicous and everything tasts fresh from sea. The staff are really good and friendly.

    It pains me to be critical of what has long been a favourite restaurant. Stoop Your Head has simply never returned to its pre-Covid standards. I had very expensive Dublin Bay prawns in garlic butter and they were overcooked and gritty/sandy as all entrails were still present. It cost an eye watering 36.60e. The dish was served with a single slice of very thin McCambridge's ( or similar) brown bread and a leaf of lettuce. Once the food was served we didn't see the waitress until we paid. It was a normal enough Thursday evening in May. So disappointing. I was treating friends so was reluctant to give feedback at the time.

    Lovely food, reasonably priced, service excellent, although it was extremely busy. In Stoops, a glass of wine is a good size, unlike many other restaurants. Only criticism is the noise level, difficult for conversation.... but we always go back!

    The most delicious seafood ever…. Honestly. We had a huge platter of Dublin Bay prawns & enormous crab claws… plus yummy seafood chowder, mussels, pâté, and tempura tiger prawns. Such fantastic value. Lunch for 3 was just over €100…. unbelievable value. The only minor issue was the brown bread…. The quality is very mediocre… an easy thing to fix? But we’ll certainly be back

    Good food, good service, always enjoyable. Table space per person a little squashed. A bit rushed as table was needed for next setting. This was evening time sitting for 6 of us. Lunchtime is always much more relaxed IMO.

    We ordered cod Florentine and salmon and prawn dish along with chicken liver. The food was about average. No value for money. However the outdoor seating area was lovely, the ambience of the restaurant was great along with the view. The service was good as well.

    Loud music playing for the staff. Food not great, savory potatoes overcooked (possible re-cooked). This was mentioned to the waitress who took no heed of our comment. The cod in batter overdone. We went and finished our evening elsewhere.

    Service was fantastic. Atmostphere was buzzing as was very busy here Food is always lovely. My wife had garlic bread to start and I had the hot chicken wings..which were quite hot in temperature and spice. 6 was too many for a starter but got through them OK. The celery and sour cream calmed things down. The fresh cod Frittes were really good, the seabass and prawns mix was beautiful, took the potatoes and cod frittes home as was too much food and hate food as good as that being thrown out. I never take pictures of food as too busy enjoying it.. I'd recommend this place to anyone..it's so much better now they've built around which was the outside space and made it an inside space, nicely heated and insulated, and no more birds flying around your seabass..look forward to the next visit.

    I have been in stoops a number of times. Unfortunately this time was not as good as previous. Food and presentation was not great for price paid. For instance skins were left on the fish in the fish pie and cod in the florentine. Also service was a bit sloppy with dirty glasses on the set table and dishes arriving at different times. Overall standards have slipped.
