About Old Post Office
The Old Post Office is a fine dining Chinese restaurant located in an old post office building in the heart of Blackrock village
Our mission is to serve authentic, high-end Chinese cuisine with dishes from the the Sichuan region, with European style service
It is a modern restaurant over looking Blackrock seashore, serving a good value business lunch, tasting and a la carte evening menus
Beautiful food and ambience.
Really super staff, best aromatic duck I’ve had, carved at table.
Great food. Highly recommend the monk fish dish -best monk fish I’ve eaten out in a long time
Classy Atmospheric restaurant, with friendly service. We will return.
Service is not fine dining. Had to order own drink at the bar as only one person attending at front of house. Attention to detail lacking. ( pushing in chair, clearing of table, frequency of checking on table, lacking finesse). Plating main course already on dinner plate is impractical when having to add rice or noodles on top of main after the fact. Ideally all dishes could be served in bowls for the diner to plate up themselves onto dinner plate. A bit messy.. as linen table cloths will show at end of every meal. That said, food is gorgeous and very fresh. Refurbishment of old post office beautiful.
Great meal in a lovely setting
Had yet another wonderful meal in the Old Post Office on sat 25th January. Always love it.
Lamb overcooked Pity
Enjoyed it again from last visit . All very good BUT there is a fundamental issue.On both occasions only 2 or 4 peopel in the restaurant ( Thursday only 2 more people at 9 pm ) so makes it a bit of a 'morgue' and therefore lacks atmosphere !! Cant understand why ? as Sichuan Restaurant in Sandyford is almost always full every day in the week ? Hope these comments are helpful
Loved it as before. The food always good.
Great people, great food. I salute you. Thank you Paul, you were outstanding.
Fabulous meal with excellent service, we will definitely return
I have over 300 reviews on Tripadvisor so my reviews are really authentic and objective ( I reviewed restaurants in over 100 cities ) . Our experience of food and service was excellent . We went on a Monday night ( which is great its open on Monday evenings ) so there were not many people. It 'reduced the overall atmosphere' a little although I prefer quietness than loud crowds. The tables are nicely spaced The food was exceptionally good. Our friends came from Malahide and initiallywondered if it was worth the distance. There last words were 'we wilbe back soon '.
Dear John, Thank you for taking the time to write such lovely words. We certainly enjoyed looking after you on the night and we were delighted your guests had such a positive experience. We hope to welcome you back again soon to Old Post Office. Kind Regards Paul
We enjoyed an excellent lunch and were wonderfully looked after by Salvo, a lovely Sicilian gentleman. We will definitely be recommending your beautiful restaurant; we thought it was superb.
Dear Cathy, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review, we really appreciate it, especially your comments regarding our staff and Salvo in particular. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kind Regards Paul
Very disappointing. There were only 4 other tables occupied when we arrived, and we were the only table remaining by the end (9pm). Despite this, the service was awful - it took forever to take our order, the wine was brought to the table and then left unopened (we ended up self-serving all night), the food was no different to my local takeaway and then the receipt included things we hadn't ordered. Upon receiving the correct receipt, I then waited 10 mins before getting up to find a server to pay (I found her on her phone around the corner). Another small thing - each table gets an envelope on their table, presumably an homage to its previous incarnation as a post office. The envelope and leaflets are riddled with spelling mistakes and grammatical errors, and were clearly made online for 10p a pop. Embarrassing for somewhere purporting to be a high end place. This is meant to be a 'fine dining' restaurant - I can see why there was hardly anyone else in, and frankly I will be surprised if this place hasn't shut down by the end of the year.
Dear Richard, Thanks you for leaving such detailed feedback regarding your dining experience. I must apologise for the shortcomings throughout your evening and can assure you that this is not indicative of the level of service and food quality we strive to provide in our restaurant. I would love an opportunity to discuss further with you, if that would be agreeable. If so please don't hesitate to contact me at [email protected] Kind Regards Paul
The decor and view is amazing. We had a lovely lunch for two and we would definitely return.
Everything was exceptional - the only thing that I would say is that we were one of three tables in a very large space...not sure what can be done to improve the atmosphere other than maybe some more marketing, offers etc.
4th time in the Old Post Office lived it every time.
Atmosphere would be better if the lighting was softened. Waiting staff dress code could create a better Chinese theme.
Dear Jim, Thank you for your recent feedback, which we have taken on board. We do hope to welcome you back again soon to old post office. Kind Regards Paul
Booked as we had a voucher but had low expectations after a poor critics review. Couldn't have been more wrong. Seriously good food, great bar and setting and all reasonably priced
Dear David, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. We were delighted to read that enjoyed your evening and in particular the food on the night. As a local, I do hope you join us again soon. Kind Regards Paul
Though the restaurant was virtually empty when we were there for lunch this did not perturb us. The window seat we had was fantastic and we all had a wonderful and very relaxing lunch. Looking forward to the next time.
Dear Raymond, Thank you for your recent review. We are delighted you had a very enjoyable lunch and we thank you for your continued business, we look forward to welcoming you back once again to old post office. Kind Regards Paul
A little expensive but you’d pay the same for worse in many other restaurants. Staff are lovely, decor is beautiful, food delicious. Hope this restaurant does well. The setting, with the view, would be incredible for “afternoon tea” but I’m not sure the cuisine would suit it. Perhaps during the day it could mix up the menu to facilitate scones, cakes and light bites with tea & coffee. Other places in inferior settings do very well from this. For dinner, I wouldn’t change a thing! Highly recommend
Dear David, Thank you for taking the time to write your recent review. We were delighted you enjoyed your experience and thank you for the well wishes. We are lucky to have such stunning views, that could be used for many styles of service. Thanks once again. Regards Paul
Service was incredible
Dear Manny, Thank you so much for your visit with us on Friday last. We were delighted that you had a wonderful experience and we look forward to welcoming you back next month. Kind Regards Paul
Good food, good atmosphere
Dear Ivan, Thank you for taking the time to write such kind words, we look forward to welcoming you back to the old post office again soon. Kind Regards Paul
