About Us

What's Our Secret?

 What are people saying about us?

Octopussy Tapas is a big favorite among locals and visitors to Howth. Situated on the West Pier, the restaurants success has become something of a phenomenon. There are many reasons for the popularity. Fresh locally sourced produce, award winning chefs, amazing servers and stunning views probably have something to do with it.

Octopussy’s seafood is supplied by “Dorans on the Pier”, our own fish shop next door. Dorans is run by three brothers, all fishermen with more than 50 years experience among them. Dorans is supplied by a fleet of fishing boats operating out of Howth. It really doesn’t get any fresher!

Octopussy’s award winning chefs and knowledgeable servers ensure that the food you order is cooked and served by people who love what they do and are as passionate about food as you are! These factors led to the 2014 Certificate of Excellence with TripAdvisor and explain why we are constantly at the top of the rankings.

Our fresh fish & shellfish is supplied daily from our fish shop next door; “Doran’s On The Pier”. We are committed to local & sustainable fishing & source as much seafood as we possibly can from Irish waters.

A discretionary 10% service applies for all tables, due to our tiny size we share all of our tables so be prepared to make new friends! We do not serve starters and mains. All dishes ordered will come out as they are ready. We cannot unfortunately offer separate bills,
all tables must be paid in a single transaction.

We have a large and varied wine list to compliment our dishes – if you need any assistance in choosing your wine, our servers will gladly assist.
