I love this place usually but we had quite a disappointing experience this time. The service was very very slow. They apologised for being understaffed. My husband ordered the only vegetarian option on the mains menu and it was minuscule. The children’s portions were bigger. I hoping they were just having an off night and it will back to its usual greatness next time.

We had a fantastic family meal. The menu was able to cater for the family's diverse tastes and needs. The service was excellent and went beyond our expectations. Every effort was made to make our experience special, relaxed and memorable. We would highly recommend it for 5pm on a Sunday, as a perfect way to finish your weekend.

Myself and a friend were in holidays in Bray and decided to eat here on a recommendation. However we were not impressed. We were shocked by the service and poor selection on the menu. We asked three different servers on 3 different occasions for our bill but were left sitting there waiting for a long period of time. The quality of the food was amazing! Lots of fish options. Won’t be eating here again

Staff lovely but We took my husband’s parents for his mums birthday food was limited and reason we went was for paella which wasn’t available but still advertised on the menu.Staff were friendly but no pace to the service. Took 10 minutes to order initially 15 minutes for drinks and after main course we had steak pork & the linguini which were all lovely. Chips were cold and portions were very small except the linguini. Tables were sticky when we sat down and I asked them to wipe for me which I realized was the problem no sanitised tables as they were using windolene to clean the wooden tables with Covid it’s not good enough.Wasn’t asked if we wanted desserts and had to ask for menus and again waited 10 minutes to order and a good while for them to arrive the sticky toffee pudding was dry & the hot apple pie was still frozen so had to ask for it be heated we brought candles and when the dessert arrived they used some worn down candle they found in the back despite me handing it do them 5 mins before we wouldn’t do dinner here again ok for a coffee but leaves a fair bit to be up to standard. It’s a challenging climate but there was no manager on duty and with 10 tables and 4 staff it isn’t good enough in my opinion. Would do breakfast if walking around but wouldn’t return for dinner unfortunately.

Delicious, cozy and friendly staff. One of my favourite places in Bray. The only comment is that it is slightly on the pricey side, especially alcoholic drinks.

Food was delightful. I had the special which was a prawn linguine. I think it was the nicest dish I’ve ever had. The blend of flavours was sublime, big juicy prawns, plenty of them and rich sauce to coat the linguine. My friend had the ribeye steak which he said was divine, perfectly medium/well, coupled with the pepper sauce. The crispy onion rings, mash and stuffed mushrooms were a tasty accompaniment, the mushrooms in particular. The Bailey’s cheese cake and chocolate brownie rounded off a lovely evening with very good coffee. Seats are limited here so book early to avoid disappointment. It’s a limited menu, probably leaning towards seafood dishes, but I cannot wait to go back. Very good value for money. Gem of a restaurant, and staff as always were friendly and professional.

We had a wonderful meal at dockyard no 8. Starters (scalops, and warm goats cheese salad) were perfectly judged and presented.
Mains, (steaks and barbery duck) likewise cooked to perfection, with lovely accompanying sauces and veg.
This was a real 'find' of a restaurant in Bray.
Deserts not as high a standard.

Great service, food & ambience. Seafood excellent. However nobody came to ask us did we want dessert or tea/coffee at the end. Other than that, everything was great.

The food was good as usual. Although, we thought the brunch menu is more interesting than the one offered for dinner. The two ladies serving were super friendly, one of them (forgot to ask her name) even had a chat with us in Spanish, she was very nice. Dockyards is still one of my top places to eat in Ireland.
