Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This restaurant we found last evening by chance. It’s well worth a visit. Food is excellent and atmosphere is great. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. A nice treat in Blackrock!

This was my first visit to The Stone House in Blackrock. The setting is beautiful - overlooking the Irish Sea. The restaurant has a real homely feel with a roaring log fire in the bar. The welcome was great - I can't remember the last...time I was personally handed a glass of Malbec by the proprietor, when in a large group of people. My colleagues & I enjoyed a set three course dinner: my starter was the tempura vegetables, followed by sirloin steak and then finished off with ice cream. All very tasty and served with a smile. We had taken over the restaurant for the evening, so much fun was had along with a good old sing-a-long to a colleague's guitar too. Highly recommended and thanks to the staff.More

Went here with friends, food was just ok but needed a bit of dressing up. Over cooked skinny chips, It came out on big fancy plates but steak was nice(not tasty) just nice, they should have kept there money, bought normal plates and paint the...place. There was stains on the ceiling in bar, the hallway to toilets badly need painting and floor covering. And as for the toilets themselves, I seen better in the local club rooms.More

Well done, it has to be the worse steak I ever had, ordered a steak sandwich and a smelly mis-steak arrived on 2 small thin slices of of a baguette,with very anemic steak and skinny chips for €19. A rip off. NWorse quality of a...steak I’ve ever had, the smell in the place is awful too and stains on roof on carpet on seats, avoid this place. There’s a new steakhouse opening up on same street in few months and I can tell you they have nothing to worry about with competition.More

This is a warm, relaxing restaurant. As is the bar, friendly, laid back atmosphere. The food is good and tasty with a nice choice from the menu. Prices are on the high side though. Service was attentive and very welcoming. A very nice restaurant and...will go again.More

Super friendly staff. We got a table right next to a fire place, which was very cozy. Food was excellent, definitely worth the price. My friend got an extra wrap for free, and with our aesthetically pleasing coffee, we got free shortcake, two for each.

Absolutely fantastic service!!! The bar man was amazing, there when you wanted a refill but not on top of you. They actually know how to cook a steak which is a rarity these days. Service, Staff, food and drink all an absolute pleasure! Wouldn’t think...twice about going back!More

Called into The Stone House on Saturday. We had lovely vegetable soup for starters. As my husband did not have a great appetite we decide to share a main course. We ordered ribs and wings with BBQ sauce and a side of garlic potatoes and...told the waitress we would be sharing. She brought out an extra plate. When we saw the size if the ribs we were glad we had not ordered two mains because we could not have finished them. The ribs and wings were delicious and my husband enjoyed the garlic potatoes. We really enjoyed our visit to The Stone House. We were seated quickly, our drinks orders were taken straight away and the food was served promptly. The staff were very friendly and approachable. Definitely a place we will visit the next time we are in the area.More
