- We had dinner here Saturday We had dinner here Saturday night. Food was delicious. I had salmon and my friend pasta. Lovely atmosphere and surroundings. Staff attentive and efficient. Definitely recommend a visit and I hope to return.lillian d9/14/2020Food was inedible The food is overpriced. No Smirnoff ice. Tiny portions. The beef sandwich I got was freezing I had to send it back so my partner ate his ribs ( 3 bites and it was gone it was that small ) while I was there with just chips and mayo. No garlic dip?? The food came back again but it was disgusting. This time round they had put the tiniest amount of crispy onions on it that wasn’t on the first one that was supposed to be on it it was almost like an insult. The staff are lovely I feel sorry for them I don’t think the table beside us were happy either. The nice lady host didn’t charge for the wine as a sorry what else could she do. I read the reviews before going but I still wanted to give it a chance and was excited however I could never return. They don’t seem to want to improve judging by the other reviews. I left starving after paying 35 Euro so we went to rocksalt cafe and thankfully they saved the day.Roving2297352/18/2020Had a meal here on Thursday Had a meal here on Thursday last. Six of us at the table. One member of our party just wanted a main course as wasn’t hungry but because the other parties were ordering from the set menu this person was forced to spend €39(set menu price) as both menus would not be accommodated at the same table. Because of the failure to accommodate for this I would struggle to return. Food was good service should have been quicker.(ordered at about 7.15 got deserts about 9). Prices on the high side, more comparable with Dublin.fi0nnanm9/27/2020
- Beautiful surroundings - food needs to improve Made a last minute booking for Saturday evening.....restaurant is decorated beautifully, no doubt about it. We were brought to table but I could not say we were greeted warmly by what seemed the senior waitress. The menu was more expensive than I expected for Blackrock but I would not have minded if food had matched the price. We had seafood chowder, it needed better mix of fish, crab claws, think the portion was 7, not enough for price & bruschetta which was tasty but too expensive @ €10 ..... like seriously!
Followed by carbonara was very poor, couldnt eat it. Steak pizza which I think cost €18 but I had to look for pieces of beef on it & there was too much coriander. Fish & chips was fine, but hey can u go wrong cooking that. Overall we said we were glad we tried it but we wouldnt rush up again.....well not until they introduce an early bird for diners willing to eat at 5 or 6pm.sunnygirl19692/23/2020Have now been a couple of Have now been a couple of times separately for coffee, brunch and most recently dinner. Have to say the decor is fabulous and in general a great addition to the village. However on each occasion I felt core elements of the coffee / food offer left me and my fellow guests underwhelmed. ( There’s undoubtedly better coffee in at least 2 other village venues) The dinner menu feels a bit pretentious and unfortunately the 12-hour Braised Beef Short Rib I was served was whilst tasty - simply cold. My wife had pork belly and had the same complaint. I really hope the team get it right as it would be shame that after such significant investment and thoughtful design that the core offer fails to impress. I’ll wait for a few months before I go back in the hope that Clermont gets it right !500brendanm2/07/2020Beautiful surroundings Disappointing food The food was very hit and miss. Although everything was exceptionally presented the food was very bland especially when it came to the fish dishes. The breaded fish and chips was very oily and lacking flavour but in particular the blackened salmon dish was extremely bland. The salmon was cooked well but tasted like very basic salmon and was under seasoned, the accompaniments where awful. The watercress puree has no flavour and the mirin potatoes where like strips of raw unflavoured potato on the plate.
For the meat dishes, we got short rib and the strip loin steak and both where lovely. Again the chips where bland and in this case under cooked. The children got pizzas which they enjoyed, the childrens menu is reasonable and well done.
Overall the place is really done lovely, the staff where lovely but let down by the food and in the end if doesn’t matter how pretty the place is if the food is below par.
I did reach out to the place directly but having had no reply I have decided to post the reviewLyntin9/14/2020
