Using another one of Roma's Christmas vouchers, we went out to dinner in a new restaurant in Monkstown Crescent called "Seapoint" last Saturday evening. We had to wait until 9.15 for a table as the place was packed with a vibrant noisy crowd. No sign of recession yet in Monkstown! The restaurant is a really nice place to eat - friendly staff and lots of nice paintings on the wall. We had a smashing meal - I had (from the menu): pan seared scallops, saffron risotto, pickled vegetables for €22.50. Roma had two starters instead of a main course. Neither of us had separate starter or dessert, we finished with coffee and port. Including a bottle of wine, the whole meal came to €95 - a bit pricy for what we had. A good job we had a voucher!
Overall, a very enjoyable meal out - Seapoint is recommended!
