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.

Have been eating in the Ocean bar for a number of years. Always got great food at a good price. On our last visit we were a party of 9 and everyone was shocked at the cost.€24 for monkish and €19.95 for lamb shank.

We had the San geovese red wine which was lovely. The seafood chowder and Salmon potato cakes were excellent. The creme brulee x and berry compote were tasty. Service with a smile as always

We visited Ocean Bar in Bray for a family birthday celebration this week. The menu resembled upmarket bar food and received mixed comments: from very good for the hake and steak, to tasteless for the 'joint of the day' dish (pork). The starters were a little pricey but portions were generous and overall were thoroughly enjoyed. The Vegetarian option for... More

Lovely restaurant, friendly staff and good food. The wine (Three wooly sheep)was divine, we had calamari and poached pear salad to start followed by cod and lamb shank. The mains were very big. The atmosphere wasn't great as there was a very noisy party with a lot of screaming children at the table to the right of us, and the... More

Have been to this Resturant many times with friends, however our most recent visit was disappointing to say the least. The decor of the Resturant is lovely, staff are friendly & attentive.
