I brought my Mum to Old Street for Mother's Day lunch, and had a really enjoyable afternoon. From the moment we walked in the door, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Food was beautiful in taste and presentation, it was a great value menu for Mother's Day and a really good selection to choose from. My mum was really happy with her afternoon and that's really what it's all about given the day !
Thanks to all at Old Street, I would have no hesitation in recommending your restaurant.

We had a lovely lunchtime meal on Mother’s Day including a complimentary cocktail for Mom! Children’s menu is a little limited, I’d like the option to pay for e.g a half portion from adult menu. Service was good, though meals were served quickly between each other even after I asked for a few minutes before dessert was served (we had a 2 hr slot but still had lots of time left) so no real need for the rush.

We have been in Old street a few times now. It’s my favorite restaurant in Malahide. You really feel you are somewhere special when you are there.

Yes, I would recommend Old Street to a friend.

However, this point may not be the fault of the restaurant but the markdown was due to the fact that kids coats, hats and napkins were strewn across the floor when we tried to get to our table.

Through no fault of the restaurant, the parents should have kept a better eye on their children as they were jumping and screaming whilst we were trying to enjoy our meal.

Food & drinks all excellent. slight issue with service, although staff very pleasant, in that we were left waiting for drinks at bar despite glasses empty and again during meal waiting for dessert menus... staff seemed to disappear upstairs. Other than that excellent night.

Lovely comfortable restaurant with delicious food , amazing service & fun friendly staff ! A cozy old world venue, renovated from cottages of previous local Malahide families! The choice of menus & price points makes this a true delight of a place to share with friends & families. Thanks for a great night Old Street !

2nd time in old street. This time we were celebrating our engagement. We were brought two flutes of bubbly. Food was excellent and the 'pretty in pink' cocktail was a mind blower. Good buzz for a Wednesday night and 1/2 price bottles of wine. Great evening.

Lovely setting, great location, beautiful building and interior and the staff were lovely - laid back but attentive and chatty. But the food was poor. We had the scallops and tuna as starters. The scallops were overcooked and swimming in a sauce of balsamic and onion - way too much sauce and a shame the scallops were just overdone. The tuna dish really looked the part but very bland - not real flavour coming off any of the ingredients on this lovely looking dish.
We had the chicken with lentils and mash and the turbot dishes for our mains, again no flavour jumping off the plate. Way too much lentils poured over the mash. The piri piri chicken came across as having no piri piri at all, but just as being blackened chicken. Edible but again very bland and therefore heavy with the amount of lentil and mash. This is not a cheap restaurant. Including a bottle of Chablis, couple of cocktails and some table water -180 euro. The bill had more bite in it than any of the dishes, unfortunately!

We found the food from a taste point was above average. The price was on the high side for what you got. No sides included in price of main. A few dishes were a bit small. Did not see this as a Michelin Guide restaurant. With that being said the service cannot be faulted in the slightest. Warm reception upon entering the restaurant and this continued throughout the evening.

Had an early bird which provided a really good offering. Cured salmon starter was delicious. I enjoyed the burger for main. Sides and bread were excellent. Nicest soda bread I’ve had in I don’t know how long. Ambience was lovely- nicely busy for a Tuesday. A €10 supplement for the steak was a little steep in my view but apart from that, this is probably the best value early bird in Malahide at the moment. Will look forward to going back.

Thoroughly enjoyed our family meal in old street last Sunday evening, food was delicious & fun was had. I rated service at 3 stars because our main course, we felt was slow coming out to us, but our actual server was excellent, a lovely pleasant, friendly girl. Overall, I will return & I will recommend to friends, thank you 👍🏻

Birthday dinner. Gorgeous food, lovely hosts. Service was a little slow. They made changes to the shellfish used in one of the meals and I was taken aback that they only told us as they were putting the plate of food down in front of us. Not when we ordered. Amazing desserts.

Décor is fab, food is very good and staff are very friendly but it's fairly pricey. Kids eat free at Sunday lunch but they charged us for a kid's dessert which was pretty annoying since last time we were there for Sunday lunch they charged us for the entire kid's meal.

There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the restautant. Our recent visit was on a Tuesday evening and we had the special,
Cote de Boeuf . It was cooked as we had requested and was superb. Great value €50 for 2 people and it comes with sides and sauces. You just cant beat this place.

I’ve been to Old Street a few times now and the food is always outstanding! We got the early bird menu which featured a great selection! One of our party needed gluten free options and they were so accommodating. Super wine selection and a great atmosphere. It’s beautifully decorated and the staff are just wonderful, always smiling and genuinely seem to enjoy their job. Thanks Old Street, we’ll be back!
