Cape Greko Malahide opened its doors in November 2004. Cape Greko is the first Greek & Cypriot restaurant to open in Malahide. With wonderful views of the marina and traditional Greek Cypriot cooking Cape Greko was an instant success.
Our head chef, Demetris, carefully planned his menu taking influences from different regions in Greece and Cyprus and bringing them together for Irish people.
Cape Greko is named after the beautiful Cape Greko peninsula in Cyprus. We have taken inspiration from this area and attempt to recreate the beauty and simplicity in our restaurant.
Cape Greko’s logo is an amphora. Amphoræ are jars with narrow necks and two handles, used by ancient Greeks for transporting oil or wine.
Cape Greko is a fully licensed restaurant selling wines, beers, spirits and cocktails

Cape Greko is a favourite restaurant for many years. In fact, when we moved and returned after years the staff still remembered us. The traditional Cypriote and Greek food tastes great! Well worth the drive. It is located on the first floor looking out over a park in Malahide with the Marina as background.

Four of us dined at Cape Greko last week. The food was absolutely delicious. 4 different starters, 4 different mains, all very tasty. Very reasonably priced and generous portions. We will all definitely be going back.

Visit this restaurant a few times and a year and it never fails. Very reasonable early bird menu and they are always very accommodating with children. Favourites include the vine leaves and moussaka

Lovely choice on the Early Bird Menu (available up till 7pm). I'd say approx 10 choices on each of the starter and main courses. Good wine selection. Staff were very friendly too.

This was a first visit to Cafe Greko and it was a very enjoyable experience. The food is tasty, well presented and has an authentic Greek character. We chose the Meze starter to share which was really tasty. Main courses were very generous - we both chose Souvlakia. No room for dessert! A reasonably priced wine list (rare these days in Dublin!) and friendly service made for an enjoyable dining experience. I’d be happy to recommend Cafe Greko.

We went to this restaurant 8 years ago for lunch and it was very good, however, we were disappointed with our dinner in August this year. The starters; vegetarian and meat meze were good however the main courses were mediocre i.e. prawn kebabs were burnt, pork meatballs were bland. The staff never smiled and came to give us our main courses but hadn't cleared our starters, I also asked for water twice before it was served. The gave us a cocktail menu and I ordered a mojito only to be told that only the manager could make cocktails and they weren't working that night. The place was clean and the atmosphere was good but service and food mediocre - wouldn't go there again.

Lovely food and super value early bird.
Only complaint is other guests with small children who were noisy, clearly overtired or past bedtime but staff were very accommodating.

Service was not great - the staff looked miserable and it took alot of waving to get their attention.
The starters were very nice (seafood meze to share) however the mains were not great. The prawn dish was supposed to have ouzo in the sauce but you couldn't taste it, it was just cream and far too heavy. The chicken stuffed eith feta and olives came breaded deep fried covered in garlic butter. This was not stated on the menu and the garlic eas too over powering.
The staff were only friendly when we were leaving and didn't enquire as to how was our meal despite lots left on the plate. Perhaps we were unlucky but I wouldn't be rushing back or recommending it.

We went for an early bird and overall it was fine, nothing spectacular. It is not children friendly restaurant, on the first floor and hard to bring a stroller up. Food was good, loved grilled feta cheese and lamb kebab but musaka wasnt as good as I ate before. Service was slow and felt like in Greece, lol. Overall fine for a quick bite or lunch, definitely good value for the money.

Been coming here on and off for years. Love Greek food. The organic red wine was delicious. Vegetarian meze great but main courses are rather large so my recommendation would be to reduce the portion sizes down a bit. Otherwise lovely.

The only negative was the restaurant hadn't got our booking ! We felt a bit awkward initially but luckily they had a table & were able to accommodate us. No reflection on the restaurant but I would be reluctant to book a table through 'open table' again.

We were a group of 8 and tried a variety of starters and mains. The grilled feta was excellent as was the calamari. For mains the lamb tava was ample and very tasty as was beef stifado and chicken kebab. Would definitely go back.
