“Disappointing food & got overcharged”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Went there for an early bird dinner with colleagues. Had Crispy Pork Belly Croquettes - very disappointing - deep fried meat balls of questionable consistency. I don't mind leftovers recycled where the result is appealing to the senses - not this. The panfried Salmon was delicious, however, the portion was small the garnish very small. At €17.95 it's a ripoff. To make matters worse, our party of 6 was overcharged by approx €115. I assume due to some mixup the bill of another table was added to ours. The mistake was only discovered by us days later. Several phone calls and emails later, we were refunded the money but the process could have been handled much better by the Restaurant.

“Great value early bird, and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

Ate mid-week, early bird menu is available all night Monday to Thursday. This was not a prerequisite for eating there, but an excellent plus.

The service was very good, and the food was excellent. Most of us ate steak and it was great, as were the other dishes. The wine selection was also good.

The decor and castle setting provide for an excellent atmosphere. I have eaten there before and will definitely return.

“Great Service in a Lovely Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

We went to Fahernheit in Clontarf Castle last Saturday. There was a good buzz around the place and the general area of the Castle was alive with people having fun. We decided to have a 4 course meal incl tea/coffee. Starters were very good; I had Pork Belly and she had Pate. For mains I had Ribeye, while she had Lamb. Dessert for her was Icecream and Merangues for me. Most of the food was excellent, however, the pork was a little dry and would benefit from more jus. Same for the merangue with rhubarb - it was too dry and needed more sauce. But overall a very enjoyable meal. The staff were attentive, but not in your face. They were also very friendly. Cost €95.00 incl glass of wine and a cocktail. I'll be back.

“Incorrect location for Fahrenheit Grill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2013

In your restaurant locater you have the above restaurant on a map for Clondalkin Dublin 22 . It is actually in Clontarf Dublin 3 which is on the North East of the City not the South West.Some of the reviews indicate the location which was helpful.
Both Clontarf & Clondalkin have an area with " Castle" addresses but your map is very misleading.
