In Dublin for conference at this hotel and there were five of us at our table with another fifty maybe also eating there. I don’t like tomatoes so disappointing that they couldn’t make a pizza with BBQ sauce, the chef must figure that out… I...had to go for the ribeye steak which was just ok, probably because I wasn’t paying. Everyone else had pizza and said they were lovely so giving a 4 for this, just wish they could learn to make a pizza with BBQ sauce too.More

Nice hotel restaurant. We had a 2 course meal deal as part of our park and stay deal so the choices were a bit more limited but nevertheless the food was good and the portion sizes were great! The garlic bread starter was almost the...same size as a pizza! The staff were friendly and service was pretty good.More

Don’t order the over priced steak with Gorgonzola butter - the butter does not exist - and ‘if it had been there you would not have tasted it’...!?

Limited menu but what they do, they do well. Good Italian-themed food which is surprisingly authentic for a large hotel and which represents good value for money.More

Quite possibly the best pasta dish I have ever had - Fettucini Alfredo. A visit to the Clayton Hotel should include a meal here. Great service, outstanding food, reasonable prices what more could you want?More

Disappointed to say the least . I ordered the chicken dish with potatoes and the actual chicken was dry and tasted like it was cooked with fish . And a glass of Rose was €12 , I asked the waiter was this a mistake he...said ‘no that’s the price’ . The service was good but raging we just didn’t go with the bar food . Won’t be backMore

If I could leave no stars I would. The man at the reservation counter inside the restaurant was rude and and acted incredulous that we had the audacity to show up without a reservation. It’s a hotel restaurant next to the airport, come on. After...traveling 4 hours we were tired and hungry. Sorry we didn’t plan ahead to make a reservation at an airport hotel eatery but being at capacity was not the problem the way we were treated was. After spending 9 days in various parts of Ireland we were treated with the most warm hospitality at every stop, except for the Italian Kitchen. We ended up landing at Toner’s for a pint while we waited only 20 minutes for a table at Cirillo’s in town. It ended up being a better experience anyway I am sure.More

To sum it up, big disappointment. Menu was promising and AA rosette normally would deliver so much more ! Starter was okay, but salad dressing overpowered any taste from carpaccio Pizza main poor, watery mozzarella made the base soggy and watery tomato left sliding of...the pizza Spicy crispy potatoes were the best dish Service okay but nothing more than that Haven’t mentioned the prices yet, but certainly doesn’t represent value eitherMore

We ate here mostly because it was convenient. The food was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The manager could not have been kinder when there was a mix-up in our desert order.
