  • 5 star ratingThe meat is excellent If you want a safe place to get out of the house and feel normal again - this is right for that. In simple terms the are getting it right and seem very aware of peoples fears. Good job to the team there. I must say the meat is excellent. Worth the price and a nice place to sit. Will be back!

    3 star ratingBeautiful 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.

    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!

    2 star ratingBeautiful 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 review

    5 star ratingLovely 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 terrific
