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.

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.

Emily is an outstanding team leader and is so friendly and accomodating. Food is always great. The only thing I would add is that if you go regularly, the menu never seems to change, so a daily special would be good to ring the changes while retaining favourite dishes. Our family still miss the early bird option. But Ocean is my favourite restaurant!

It is hard to leave a star rating after our experience on Sunday. We have been going to Ocean for years and have always really enjoyed all aspects of our experience. We have had family reunions and birthdays there. One of our favourite things to do as a family is Sunday breakfast brunch. We booked this on Sunday 1st September for 1030am however, when we arrived we learned that they no longer accommodate kids. There is no cereal or kids menu on offer and kids have to order off the main menu. I raised this with the waitress when we arrived and was told rather curtly that is just the way it is now. There was no colours or paper offered to the kids which while a minor thing does help kids settle down in a restaurant. We proceeded to order and when I asked to make a minor adjustment to my order I was told that the chef won't do that even though they have done it every time we've been before. Disappointingly, there was no manager on duty and with frustration building we decided to leave and go elsewhere. It seems there has been a decision to no longer accommodate families with young kids. Shame as it was a great place to go as a family.
