Ambience and staff were excellent. The portions seemed to have gotten smaller since we last ate here. Food was nice but not amazing.

Great night - right from the first greeting when we landed to the service, the food and the drinks. A fantastic night overall and a great way to spend a special birthday. This was our first visit and we'll absolutely be back again soon. Thanks!

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.

minor things to improve; the salad was poor; no dressing, just leaves and a dry walnut crush? wine glasses are too small and/or wine by the glass is stingy

Fantastic from the moment we walked in to getting a table in the bar area for after dinner cocktails. The food, the wine & the service all fantastic. Plenty of space to enjoy the wonderful food and the service couldn’t have been any better. Thank you.

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!

The choice on the menu was limited. The goats cheese starter had very little goats cheese and loads of salad with slices of beetroot that looked like they were just taken from a jar. The rib eye stake tasted lovely but €29 is a bit too much for what was served. The service felt rushed through the courses but when we were finished they didn't rush us out. We spent €128 and came away feeling we would have had a nicer time at the pizza place around the corner. The happy birthday plate with a scoop of ice cream was a nice touch. Overall I think the place is really nice with plenty of potential but they could do with expanding their range of beer on draft and reduce the prices to make it more affordable and

Good points: the food was excellent, as was the wine, and the facilities were very pleasant. Our main waitress was extremely friendly.
Not so good points: As a table for 2 at Christmas, we booked our table almost four weeks in advance. We arrived on time and were offered the choice of 2 different tables for 4, in the bar area. As groups filtered in for the night, they were directed towards the bar area/waiting area where we were dining. The room was quite tight so every time someone arrived, they brushed passed our table. Some were standing having pre-dinner drinks, leaning against the empty chairs at our table. The large groups made it quite loud, and we could also hear the main barman sternly instructing junior bar staff. The bar and restaurant were not busy enough for anyone to be under pressure, and by late in the evening there were still a number of empty tables for 2 in the main restaurant area.
As we were leaving, nobody approached us to ask if we had enjoyed our evening, and we walked passed an empty reception desk and out the door.
Overall, we would like to return again for the food and the surroundings. It’s a welcome addition to Malahide and we hope it grows to something outstanding. However, if the floor management remains the same on our next visit we definitely won’t be back.

Went here for Sunday lunch unfortunately it was Santa day and the place was full of kids and we were put right in the middle of a loads of families so was a very noisy lunch. Service was terrible from start to getting the bill even getting a glass of wine was a chore. I had calamari to start which was chewy and then chicken burger which sounded great on paper but was really disappointing my mother's and my husband's food was slightly better but definitely not worth the price of it. Won't be going back with much better restaurants in Malahide and much better value.

Good food, friendly atmosphere, prompt service but prices a little on the high side so will reserve it for special occasions only. Music was also too loud for our taste.
