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.
Glad to be back Glad to be back here. It is just as good as I remembered it. Had a really lovely time and wanted to say thanks. Great food guys!
Perfect without fault The title says it all. It may be the fact we've not been out in months but everything was done so well here. This is without a doubt a blueprint for how restaurants should operate now days.
The food was delicious from starter to desert and the service was excellent with our food coming out promptly but never feeling rushed.
In terms of safety, its well spaced out with glass patitions. There's a beer garden out the back which is spacious and covered for the odd spot of rain.
Now days I feel like I'm making allowences for places but the Clermont requires none. I haven't had such a relaxing evening in a long time
