We had a girls reunion before Christmas thinking this was a reasonably priced place given it's a club where you need to sign in. The bottles of rose wine were $60 each - nothing special either. The food was very ordinary & over-priced. I had...More

My wife and I shared the lamb salad which was tasteless. $25.00 for a small salad and $5.00 for a diet coke is ridiculous value.

We had the privilege of attending a weeding but had the usual wait between the ceremony and the reception. This was a great spot to relax, have a few drinks and listen to my partners reminisce about his childhood visits to Clontarf with his family.

Always a great place to catch up with friends and for dinner, get the seafood to share and always accomodating to big groups. Views are great, plenty of parking nearby for 200 cars!!

Pretty good seafood platter for $58. (70 with a bottle of wine which was surprisingly naive and you get a choice of 3) prawns, salmon, calamari, bugs, chips and salad. Great view, good service, beers priced well. Nice setup. Good ambiance. Great for a Sunday...More
