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.

We had a Saturday evening meal for 2. The food was tasty with beautiful favours. There was a nice atmosphere with good and friendly service. The meal was good value for money. The only criticism is there could have been more time between the starter and main course.

Ocean is a fantastic restaurant! I've been a number of times for breakfast and it has always been great. I booked a group dinner for 19 people for my Mum's birthday last Saturday and it could not have gone better. The food was fantastic and such good value. The staff were wonderful, especially Lauren Ann. She was so efficient and friendly and calm and really made our experience, all my family members commented on how great she was! Thanks Lauren Ann and everyone in Ocean, my Mum had a fantastic night.

Compared to F.X. Buckley restaurants in Dublin your Steak can not compete! Next time I would try sea food.
