Review on The House Restaurant at The Cliff House Hotel
The Cliff House Hotel is an opulent boutique hotel overlooking the idyllic fishing village of Ardmore, in West Waterford. The hotel which opened in 2009 has been spectacularly built into the side of a sheer cliff, with large glass windows to take in the stellar views of the Irish sea.
This intimate restaurant with its simple modern design and fine linen-laid tables, also offers diners stunning views of the bay from the full length windows. The House restaurant has already been awarded a Michelin star for the innovative and inventive cuisine prepared by Dutch head chef, Martijn Kajuiter, whose pedigree includes stints with Marco Pierre White and Michel Roux. Ingredients are sourced with care and menus reflect the seasons and the abundance of regional produce. Open your account with Bantry Bay organic salmon or poached breast of Ballin Willin partridge before mains of McGrath's Black Angus beef fillet or Helvick Monkfish. Desserts are also indulgent affairs and a popular choice is dark chocolate 70% mousse, caramelized, olive oil crumbs, semi freddo, Maldon sea salt and white coffee ice cream or maybe a hazelnut soufflé.
There is an interesting wine list, professional service and two heavy duty moorings located in front of the hotel, if you happen to be cruising nearby.
