Waited a good while to be seated. Good menu but starter and main course were delivered together, so had to quickly eat starter so main wouldnt be cold. Did say it to waitress but she said it should have been specified to have them separate. No background music. Fabulous views over the beach. No players cleared off table until bill was delivered. €8 for a glass of pinot grigio. Overall it was ok. Food was fine.

Had a nice quiet lunch here. It was our first time eating out since covid restrictions came in and this felt safe and well spaced out. My only slight concern was that there was no limit for the numbers using the toilets at any one time. It wasn't an issue for us as it was a quiet day. Have already recommended it to people. It would also be great if they have an electric vehicle charger on site for those using the hotel.

While the setting was beautiful and the staff were nice the food did not match the price. The French toast comprised of one slice of bread and 1 slice of bacon- €11. I calculated that it cost about €1.20 to make. You are only paying for the setting. I will be back but only for a coffee as that was delicious.

Staff obviously affected by Covid situation. Wearing masks and looking stressed. But generally friendly. Food is okay, menu doesn't change at all at the moment. But if you only go there once in a while it is fine.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch with friends on the terrace on a beautiful sunny day last Saturday. The service was very efficient and the food was lovely and reasonably priced. It is a gem of a place with stunning ocean views. You couldn't get any better Christina

I enjoyed my Shoreline restaurant experience so much that i went back the next day!!! The outdoor terrace is an absolute gem with stunning views of the beach/ sea. And the Donabate beach is fabulous! The tables are far apart so we felt very safe in these strange covid19 times. The food was good. It is served in a cardboard box, which does take from the experience but that makes it safer! The staff were all friendly and helpful and wearing masks! I highly recommend a visit to the Shoreline outdoor terrace on a warm sunny day!

Food was amazing as always, presented in recyclable boxes as was sitting outside, perfect for keeping any spread of covid at bay, very reasonable price wise for what we got, only thing would be ordered fish and was told there was no lemon wedge as they were waiting on a delivery

Overall experience was amazing

Booked this on open table as the pictures of the food looked really nice but in reality it was the worst meal we have had in a long long time .
Steak was really dry and burger was same salad was limp and black on the corners we didn't dare try the dessert and left after asking for the bill 4 times !!!!

Dined outside on the terrace and was offered the take away menu only. Food was very good value, location was greet particularly on a. Sunny evening. We saw other diners getting the restaurant menu and plates and cutlery, which would have been nice to have as an option. Overall, pretty good though. Would recommend.

Totally different experience to a couple of weeks ago when we visited. Food was served within 10 minutes which was more like a fast food experience. We were told although we’d booked that they required the table back in 1 hour 15 minutes, despite there being many vacant tables when we did leave. It’s a local restaurant to us but unfortunately we won’t be returning due to the lack of quality and customer service. It would appear their main concern was turning tables. Very disappointing.

The afternoon tea had stale scones and Sandwiches after a 30 min wait. Once we asked for fresh sandwiches they sent out new ones 15mins later with fresh bread. I do not understand why they couldn't of sent out fresh sandwiches to begin with. The original sandwiches had to have been left out for hours. I emailed the hotel and no response back. The staff are lovely.

cob salad had inner part of a lettuce head which appeared as if thrown on pate - leaves were not even seperated from stalk. Poorly put together. Beef main - hardly any veg. Poor food experience. Waiter did not know catch of the day and handle glasses from the top rim. Had to sit in lobby (had originally booked outdoor seating but v windy so changed). Should be able to accomodate more for food in the lobby when outdoor isn't possible due to weather.
This was our first time and we were celebrating a birthday but disappointing experience overall

Covid has changed things so I am reluctant to leave a review on that basis. Having paper nenus and salt and pepper sachets is strange and takes away from the experience of eating out. The staff in the shoreline were working so hard to make everything great for guests and diners that really that is what I was left with having eaten there.
