Ocean Bar and Grill is a restaurant in the Bray area offering excellent food and very competitive prices. We attract individuals, couples, parities and business clients in our public restaurant and also have a private dining room which accommodates larger parties or corporate needs.

We are 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.

The Ocean Bar & Grill is 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 good selection of modern dishes, many available as either a starter or main course as well as specials of the day.

The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is perfectly situated for with plentiful parking right outside, making it an ideal spot for every type of occasion from a business lunch to a family dinner, a work function or simply a quick coffee and scone. There is a fully stocked bar ensuring you can order your favourite tipple to accompany your meal.

I am almost fanatical about working with fresh quality produce to create a great food experience. On The Ocean Restaurant  menu  I work with the seasons to develop a fantastic food choice. Sourcing the very best produce there is in Wicklow and throughout Ireland is key to my work.  Local produce from the land and sea is delivered fresh to my kitchen each day. Hopefully I get to see you at The Ocean Restaurant in the next few weeks.
