The food: Seafood

Gastropub does seafood, from the same team behind Aqua in Howth. The Botanic House had been closed since 2014 before the current owners reopened it in mid-2018. Classic seafood cooked simply in a casual setting

"Embracing the classics can feel fresh when we face the fact that many of those dishes were woefully executed back in their day. Putting them into a lovely pub with just-caught local fish and seafood this good makes us very happy..." 8/10.

"Hot shellfish native catch with bouillabaisse sauce ... where do I start? In its depths lay overcooked seafood comprising one very small lobster tail that looked like a prawn on growth hormones, two actual King prawns and 22 mussels ... the aggressively tomatoey bouillabaisse masked any flavour the mussels might have had."
