Dublin Restaurants

King Sitric

  • Seafood

Updated 04/29/2014

Fodor's Review

Sitric was an 11th-century Norse king of Dublin who seemed to be very fond of Howth. Joan and Aidan MacManus's well-known seafood restaurant down by the harbor attracts many contemporary visitors to the old town. It's in a Georgian house, with the yacht marina and port on one side and sea views from which you can watch the boats land the very fish that might be tomorrow's special. The upstairs seafood bar is great for informal lunches in summer. A house specialty is fillet of turbot with crab mash and caviar cream sauce, but lobster, caught just yards away in Balscadden Bay, is the big treat—it's best at its simplest, in butter sauce.

King Sitric Review

Worst restaurant experience in Ireland... mediocre food, looks like the place is on its last legs. Go down the West Pier to Aqua which was far, far better.
