We stopped in here to warm up after a long walk along the cliff. There was a wood fire in the stove and hot chocolate for our teenagers, which made them very happy. We ordered some snacks and drinks, but didn't have a full meal so I can't comment on the menu. However I would highly recommend this as a... More

Booked a table two weeks prior to date. Very nice and capable girl took my booking and assured me that there would be no problems. Had booked for 20.30 and we arrived at 20.20. We were met by a waitress and asked if we were happy where we were to be seated. The table we preferred was a round table... More

Service was good and friendly but unfortunately one meal was missed from the rest of the party leaving us eating 20 minute ahead of her dish arriving . The food was cold and... More

My friend recommends visiting Ocean Bar & Grill for our lunch. The place was decorated in style and the staffs are very accommodating. Every time I visit an Irish restaurant, it’s my mantra to order seafood chowder if it’s available in the menu. Although it’s just a starter, it was a decent portion and one of the best seafood chowder... More

Lovely atmosphere and staff. We were welcomed at the door and accommodated at short notice. The starters and mains menu appealed more to my parents' taste than mine, but I am admittedly picky. However, I cannot fault what I ordered. It was a beautiful meal. The dessert menu spoiled me for choice. Thank you for a lovely evening.

We ate here in Monday night it was a wild stormy night but we were met by the lovely Louise with a warm smile. Menu was great & wine list varied. Most importantly the food tasted amazing it was worth braving the storm for we'll be back. Thanks to all.

Worst meal in bray in a long time, don't have the steak or duck. Tasteless steak and over cooked duck, that tasted like rubber.

Went there last night after the rugby match,one disappointment after another. The starters where ok; leg of duck and seafood chowder. However the main course was a complete disaster. I ordered the steak medium and my wife the duck. Both were over cooked. I sent the steak back but the the new steak was not much better and totally tasteless,... More

Went to this restaurant last night with my wife and parents. Had never been here before but heard good things. We were not disappointed. The wine was fantastic and the atmosphere just right. The service was great and very attentive. The starter, main course and desert were very good. Would certainly recommend this place to couples, family or friends.
