The story of Cavistons Glasthule, Co Dublin begins in 1948 when Peter's uncle James had a casual pint with the Glasthule's then fishmonger. On awaking the following morning, he found he had bought the business for €300! Cavistons was born and after the shop passed to first his father and then himself, Peter began expanding , armed with his sense of adventure, his love of food and his gregarious personality..
Ask for directions from anyone to anywhere in Glasthule, Co Dublin and the chances are your answer will include Cavistons as a landmark, if not a benchmark. Such is the popularity of Peter Caviston and his restaurant and food emporium.
