About Ocean Bar & Grill

Ocean Bar & Grill is located on the Bray seafront near the Dart Station with stunning views of the horizon and Bray Head. Housed in CIE's old 'Buffet Bar', layers of renovation have been stripped away to reveal original features such as a Brazilian Mahogany parquet floor and exposed brick walls. Deep purple velvet curtains and atmospheric lighting complement the atmosphere and makes for a comfortable and relaxing dining experience.

Casual dining at its best, the standard of food is well above the usual expectation of bar food in terms of sourcing, cooking and presentation and in a smart restaurant setting. Our services team are friendly, efficient and accommodating and can talk you through the day's specials. There is a wide and varied choice of modern dishes, many available as either a starter or main course. Our menu changes on a regular basis so there is always something new to try when you visit.

The service was incredible, we were greeted by name, our waitress and hostess sang a discreet happy birthday when bringing desert and had added a candle. The risotto was absolutely out of this world and when I complained my meat was closer to well done then medium-rare they rushed my new order. We were maid to feel like a regular guest on our very first visit and we will definitely be back!

Hi, We were a large group of 26 who were in the Ocean Bar & Grill for dinner on Saturday night. I must say from the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble and the service was impeccable. Everyone was delighted with the food and there was a great buzz in the restaurant. We all thoroughly enjoyed our night and that was due in part to your very attentive and pleasant staff. Thanks so much. The AIS team

Food is absolutely gorgeous and a very good price. Service wasn't great and quite slow would be the only negative

Love the ocean and especially Emily,always smiling and helpful. Compliments to chef. One little complaint would have loved a top up on tea instead of charge with breakfast. Martello always give us one. Separate my son bought me a voucher over the phone to pay for our breakfast yesterday and he was fuming when he asked did I enjoy his mother’s day gift to me and I said we did not get it. Someone slipped up badly and I hope they ring him to apologize and I would like a call to from whoever took the booking. Rant over. I will be back. 🤗

Perfect place for a larger group, very comfortable, good atmosphere but still easy to hear each other chat. Service was excellent, we were left to order and eat at our own pace and felt we could stay as long as we liked. Food was delish. Thank you guys!!

The service was great, lovely atmosphere. The fish dishes were very good but the vegetarian main (beetroot and pear salad) really wasn’t great. The ingredients were nice but the dressing tasted of absolutely nothing. Like a watered down mayonnaise. If you get your veggie dishes up to scratch that would be great. Also, why are the allergens not listed on the menu?

My wife and I had a lovely night at the Ocean, warmly welcomed and served. We were a little disappointed with the main course food, the fish pasta had loads of nice fish but the overall taste was a bit bland.

We were a party of 10 and found the service excellent, the staff were helpful and lovely. Although the sea trout was not available the substitute meals were really good. The only comment was regarding the Chicken portion which could be smaller or more sauce as chicken breasts have a tendency to be a bit dry when it is a large portion. Really good meal and we will be back again soon
