Something unexpected Blackrock is fast becoming a destination for good food in North Leinster and the New and the new and improved Clermont has taken the culinary ball and run with it. Having enjoyed a good piece of meat in its previous incarnation I was looking forward to a return visit when it reopened before Christmas.
From the minute you enter the door, it's clear that this is this something new, a place of quality, where the evidence of the fastidious attention to detail is everywhere. The luxurious quality of the fabrics, the intimate cafe to the front, the generous back Bistro, the natural daylight, the art - that indoor tree - this is not the Clermont of old - this is something new and unexpected with a dining experience to suit everyone and their particular budget.
While we didn't have time or a booking to enjoy the Chairman's Room, we had a delicious lunch in the Bistro, but will be back again soon to treat ourselves to something special upstairs.
Wow! Great food in a stunning venue by the sea! Myself and some friends dined in the Clermont Bistro last Saturday. We travelled one hour to visit this new place. I have to say we were blown away by the decor, the food and the friendly team. We reserved our table online which was pretty simple. On arrival we had some pre-drinks in the cool bar and then we went to our table. I had the Braised Bellingham Angus Pappardelle Pasta which was amazing. My friends had the 12hr Braised Short Rib and a Pizza. All of the food was really tasty and we had great fun with the friendly staff.
The Chairman's Room - Wow! Probably the best Steak in Ireland! A group of us decided to try the Chairman's room at the Clermont in Blackrock. All i can say is wow!. I've honestly never had beef like it. We had the 7 course tasting menu which was fun (if a bit too much!) and the host helped us pick an amazing wine. We had the Fillet's and the Mowhawk's. Amazed to see something like this outside Dublin or Belfast the decor is 5 star. Well done Clermont.
