• 3 star ratingPrepare 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
    Presented lovely
    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 spoiler

    2 star ratingAll style but poor menu and food Decided to try the new Clermont recently and having waited to allow teething problems to fade.
    The premises are attractive and the staff polite but the menu is very limited for all courses. Our mains had a couple of issues, with request for no dressing/sauce ignored and steak well below the well done requested. The person who ordered steak also said it was tough and stringy - it didn't even look like a striploin cut. Pork belly was cold. No veg seems to be standard unless ordered as a side and even then the char roasted broccoli was laced with chilli which we were not warned about - nobody ate it. The accompanying chips totalled 8 chips!
    Overpriced for sure when you see what little you get - particularly as a main course.
    If you want cocktails and a pizza then head for the Clermont but if you want a decent selection on a menu and tasty food, there are many more options in Blackrock and Dundalk.

    3 star ratingDisappointing Restaurant I made a reservation for last Saturday. It was our 6th engagement anniversary ( and Valentine`s weekend). We arrived on time and was seated between a birthday party table and another table of two near the door on the way to the bathrooms.The restaurant was half empty so I politely asked if we could get another table, but I got just a brief cold answer that all the tables are booked. So we took a table, but I felt very uncomfortable so I went to ask the same lady ( tall, short hair, glasses ) if we could eat in the bar. The answer was no as meal is served in the bar till 4.00pm and it was 4.30pm...Fair enough. Well, she didn`t make any effort to make us feel welcomed. I was hungry and didn`t want to spoil our date with my husband ( these days it`s so special having a date just us as we have two small children ), so we stayed. I ordered a steak and my husband a fish. Steak was delicious, but the vegetables raw and peppercorn sauce very watery. We were asked how was everything when paying our bill. I mentioned the above and got a reply it will be passed to the kitchen. Our experience definitely wasn`t value for money. Will not be in a rush to go back. Not to mention when we were leaving most of the tables which were empty when we arrived were still empty...

  • 2 star ratingIf you like to just eat beef, this is the place for you... I have visited The Clermont on a number of occasions, always to give it one more chance. I think they have had it now. The decor of this restaurant is absolutely stunning and contrary to other reviews, we found the staff, to be both friendly and attentive. But, we went to The Clermont, to eat. If you like beef, you should definitely go there. My husband eats beef very rarely and I am a vegetarian, so we found the menu very limited. Yes, there was Fish and Chips on the menu and some chicken but if he wanted fish and chips, he would go to Mullins a few doors away. I had the Vegetarian Ragù which was very average to say the least. I also had a side of chunky chips that I had to send back as they were not cooked properly. I was really surprised that the chef did not notice that white slices of semi cooked potatoes were being served. When we were there, we also had a look at The Chairmans menu. This is also predominantly beef based, so we will not be going there. As a vegetarian, I realise that unless it is a specialist vegetarian restaurant, the restaurant will not be just catering for me. I do believe, however, with the rise of flexitarianism, restaurants need to be offering more non meat dishes. A choice between (a poor) vegetarian ragù and gnocchi just does not cut it. But, of course, if you fancy a steak - go for it.

    4 star ratingPassed 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!

    1 star ratingHave 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 !
