Food tasty. Good portions. Could have had more vegetarian options other than Greek salad. Service very friendly and efficient. Toilets lovely and clean. Only downside was no parasol so we were very exposed.

The tables were filthy, with old food left on them. We asked staff to wipe down our table and this was not done.
The whole area was dirty, and crawling with ants.
We both had chicken curry. The food was bad, acidic, and tasted like something out of a jar from the supermarket. The portions were also small, with hardly any chicken and veg. So it was basically sauce and rice with naan bread.
We queued up at a window to pay for the food in advance, which was then delivered to the table.
All of that unpleasant dining experience then cost us €39 euro for two chicken curries and two glasses of water.

Lovely venue - nice dining experience but it was a bit annoying having to get in a que for the window service to get a second drink after having received our food . Even to get a tartare sauce we were told we had to que again to order this which was a bit unreasonable. The que was quite long so our meal would have gone cold by the time we got the tartare sauce . Other restaurants do table service so I think this service should be at the Shoreline Hotel also. Staff very nice and friendly - but on busy days the window service doesn’t work.

We enjoyed eating on the terrace, but the food was poor and not great value and we had to stand for a very long time to give the order.

We were sat in the shade despite the sun shining, drinks left to go warm before being served to us, requested a starter as a main and was told this wasn’t possible. Young female staff are lovely. But over all it was overpriced for what we received and we went home and had to make more food.

Outdoor dining overlooking the sea in Donabate, a beautiful location on a very sunny day. Food was good value and very tasty but we were disappointed to be served take-away style (food was served in disposable containers with disposable cutlery) since we had booked a table. Also only two tables had umbrellas overhead on the hottest day of the year. Staff very friendly and helpful but the use of delph & cutlery would be preferable.

Terrible service, drinks were left on bar for almost 20 minutes before they brought them over and drinks were not fresh, sent our food to another table, when our food came out it was cold and items were missing which we paid for, drinks were not even nice, food was very bad. Won’t be back

I have eaten in the restaurent several times and twice outdoors. The food inside was excellent. Unfortunatley I cannot say the same for the outside. The menu is quite limited and on both occasions I ordered fish goujons and chips. The food wasn't very warm when it arrived. The chips were slightly soggy and the fish quite dry. The batter on the outside was overcooked which made it very hard to eat. it was pretty disappointing. On the plus side the staff were lovely and friendly and service was very good.

Service poor. Ordered meals and drinks for 4 people. Food was tasty but accompaniments did not arrive. Also no condiments made available or offered. Ordered a beer which did not arrive with the rest of the drinks. When it eventually did arrive it was not what was ordered. After eating our meal the correct beer had still not arrived so had to go to the bar (which had signs all over showing restricted area) to collect it.

Booked table for 4pm. Told they wouldn’t take food orders for 15 minutes due to wedding being there. 15 minutes later they said another 15 minutes. Didn’t take food order until 5:30. Food arrived 30 minutes after that. One meal was missing. Highlighted this to server who said it would be out in a few minutes. Another half hour passed and still no food arrived. We had two small babies with us so it made life very awkward. We had to leave and bring our food home rather than eat at the table we booked because it arrived so late. One person left without getting their meal. Food was basic. Drinks in plastic cups and food in take away boxes. Would have expected drinks at a booked table to be in glasses from the bar.

Afternoon Tea, we arrived at 2.30 offered tea/coffee as there was a delay due to a wedding taking place. Advised at 3.45 there would be delay of further 7 minutes. Spoke to a manager and he agreed to a reduction in price for afternoon tea. Eventually at 4.20 we decided to have it as a takeaway and brought it home.

Was looking forward to our first time eating out after lockdown . Hadn’t realised when booking it was still a takeaway service ie everything still served in cardboard boxes, I would have gone elsewhere if I had known before. That being said I try and understand current situation and saving on staff costs even though other places are serving on crockery as normal. Chicken wrap was very poorly filled , wings were so drenched in sauce it was almost inedible. Kids fish gougons were very nice and much better value than the adults. Didn’t get a drink because didn’t want a plastic cup , was looking forward to a g &t on the terrace. The view is spectacular , the staff were helpful at the serving hatch.

I was disappointed with the food to be honest, it came in takeout boxes even though we booked a table to eat there. The food itself was good, but very small portions and not worth the price imo

Dinner didn't happen because a standard (indoor) reservation was accepted and confirmed whenit coild only be outdoor accordingly with current guidelines not mentioned anywhere on the reservation conditions. Went to the place and had to leave it because not prepared for dinning outdoor. Bad reservation process.

Had a lovely evening with my cousin here at shoreline, the only critisizim is the price of the food and the portions are quite small. Food was very tasty though. Sea food chowder was really good! It's a nice hotel by the sea so it makes a good day.

Service was awful, had to repeat my order three times, waited 45 minutes for a wrap & chips, coffees never came? I asked for them again later & when they arrived the order was wrong & coffees were cold! Maybe staff were new but certainly inexperienced & not properly trained at all

After initially sitting down we waited a good 25 mins before we were served, considering we only had 90 mins at the table that was unreasonable.
The setting was good, the weather was very blowy, but Shoreline couldn't be blamed for that.
The food and drink was nice even though served in cardboard and plastic! I would go back, as we liked the setting and the food was tasty.
Covid has ruined a lot of dining experiences and Shoreline are making the most of it.
They just need to sharpen up on service, I think they need more servers definately.
We used to go to Shoreline before Covid, and always enjoyed eating there!
Good luck

All social distance guidelines adhered to very well.

Unfortunately we arrived to find that the restaurant was closed and providing take out only. We had booked an out door table and received confirmation of the booking. I do understand these are difficult times but surely it is possible to turn off your on-line booking. We traveled to your restaurant and could have made a booking to go somewhere else. I am only providing this review because I have been prompted by pop up to do it. My guess is you still have not disabled the on line booking dispute cancelling the service.
