- Lovely surprise We ate here a few weeks ago with friends that recommended it to us and I have to say that we had a lovely meal. We knew it was a steak house and our steaks were perfectly cooked. Not really for vegetarians as I have 2 daughters that are Veggies and wouldn’t be taking them here.
Starters and Desserts were fab as well. Have recommended it to all our meat eating friends since our visit and hope to get back soon.
Decor lovely and staff were great
10/10 terrificirishmother9/08/2020Very poor evening meal I have enjoyed 4 visits to the Clermont at lunchtime. The menu isn't extensive at lunchtime but the food my friends and I ordered was very good. The interior is very nice, the seating comfortable and the service ok. I visited last night with friends for an evening 'dinner'. Two of us ordered spaghetti carbonara, which was practically inedible. It had no flavour at all and wasn't even hot, when served. We didn't make a fuss, but we won't return in the evening again. Thankfully there are other much better options in Ireland's tidiest small townHalloweentourist2/21/2020Beautiful 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
- Had 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.fi0nnanm9/27/2020Prepare to pay and leave hungry Very expensive for what it is without any frills
Not even a basket of bread will you get without paying through the nose for it.
When I asked for jug of water for the table to go alongside our alcoholic beverages I was presented with a small bottle of water that wouldn't do 1person never mind the 4of us at the table this was followed on by sparkling water to which I insisted a jug of tap water was the request the waiter begrudgingly brought a very small jug of water.
Food is ok
Portion sizes are very small and you will leave hungry
Will not return or recommend to friends
The price Vs portion and standard dominated our conversation for rest of the evening and was a real spoilerlovesibiza9/21/2020Passed through Blackrock Village Passed through Blackrock Village during a family “Staycation” and stumbled upon this hidden gem. Money well spent by the owners and the staff were friendly and welcoming. We felt safe and the kids ran around in the garden while we enjoyed Mussels and the Beef Striploin. It was a great part of our trip!H4400RUjoann10/16/2020
