    Waiter refused, repeatedly, to allow us to order bread, dips and olives for the table until we had decided what we wanted for the starter and main. This was very poor form and should not have happened. I was embarrassed by her approach, having invited friends down from Belfast to visit the restaurant. Prices have crept too high now and its starting to put me off continuing to eat here.

    We visit the Clermont a few times a year, whenever we have an excuse to travel to Co. Louth! Never disappointed with the excellent quality of the food and always impressed with the helpful, friendly (but not intrusive at all) service.

    We went as a family of 6 for a special event. It was a calm comfortable setting. Food was amazing. It is on the higher price range but worth it. 4 members of the party have additional needs and they were extremely comfortable and enjoyed the setting

    Food was tasty. A certain waitress had an attitude from the minute we walked in. A member of our party asked to pay for a round of drinks and not have them placed on the bill. The waitress obliged very unwillingly and then told the customer that it wouldn’t happen again, all food and drinks go onto the one bill. The same waitress got my order wrong which I knew would happen because I could tell she wasn’t listening to me at the time. The 10 per cent service charge added to each bill is annoying because the food and drink are overpriced. €7.80 for a pint bottle of Bulmers cider!! The same as Dublin city centre. Plus then the staff don’t need to work hard for tips because it’s coming to them anyway.

    We had an amazing Morhers day lunch here on Sunday! There were 11 of us including 2 babies! The staff catered for all our needs! Professional and friendly! We could not fault the clermont! I live in Newry and my family live in Dublin and we chose the clermont to meet as I had visited here previously a few months ago! Food was outstanding and delicious, staff amazing and venue is just stunning! Was a grey day outside but that didn’t dull our experience!! Would love to come back on a sunny day!

    Fabulous setting for lunch overlooking seafront with my friend.... Had the Prawn Open sandwich....Prawns were lovely and fresh however the Marie-Rose sauce was blaaaa...lacked seasoning and runny....it matched the blaaa basic brown bread which was not fresh - The sundried tomatoes all of one misplaced with the not so fresh cherry tomatoes that should never have left the kitchen - I would expect more for €15 pricetag...!!! On a positive, our stunning Baked Alaska saved the day alongside the friendly and attentive staff...... Will def be back but not for the Open Prawn Sandwich......🫤

    The 10% gratuity should be entirely optional and not billed. When I saw that I was billed, I opted not to pay a tip, whereas ii would have left a tip no problem if I wasn't billed...

    Food was beautiful. Huge portions and very comforting. Service was a bit slow but we blame the Valentine's Day busyness for that. We had a couple of hours to kill before school pick up. We had mains and planned to have desserts but no one approached us to clear the plates and offer the dessert menu. We tried calling the staff's attention but it was just too busy. We had to leave as it was getting closer to the pick up time. We would definitely go back but will choose a day and time when it isn't too busy.

    We ordered drinks when we arrived they never arrived. Food order taken. Still no drinks. Food arrived. No drinks . Mentioned to staff then drinks arrived. Overall no value for money . Food over priced portions are smaller than usual. Desserts are also overpriced so we didnt order them. Plus paying a service charge and poor service. We wont be back for a long time. We were regular customers but not anymore.

    Excellent staff and food. The flat bread was fabulous. The beef short rib and avocado salad with chicken were delicious. The bread and butter pudding was up there with the best. There would never be any reason to complain, as the staff ask on numerous occasions if everything is OK and to your liking.
