In the early 70s, Clontarf castle operated as a bar and cabaret venue but reopened its doors to the public in 1997 as a luxurious four stars hotel with 111 rooms.
This beautiful hotel nowadays also runs a restaurant called Fahrenheit which is based on delicious Gastronomic dishes and I wanted to visit this restaurant for a very long time until it finally happened on a recent Friday night 🙂
The food from the very first plate was delicious! The quantities were – to be honest – perfect for me. My belly was content by the end of the third plate 😌
Before the first plate arrived, the waiter brought us the bottle of red Spanish wine we ordered (A Rioja crianza) and also placed different kinds of bread with sauces (pesto, sun-dried tomatoes sauce & butter) to open our appetite. My favourite bread was the one with walnuts and the red sauce 🙌
I ordered the St Tola Goats Cheese (cumin and honey roast heritage carrots, beetroot) – this dish was very pleasant to the paladar for its variety of flavours. I mean it! I’m usually not a super fan of beetroot, but I know goat cheese make sweet things taste sooo good so I gave it a try.
The Main Course
As always, for the main course I opted for a fish dish so I ordered the Roast Cod Fillet (Savoy cabbage, bisque, clams & young fennel). It was delicious 😋 I love fish in general and the way the cod was served, was completely yums!
Oh, the dessert! 😋 it was amazing. I got the Panna Cotta (Butterscotch sauce, ginger bread & honeycomb). I haven’t said this before but every time I see Panna Cotta in the menu, I just have to try it! I have a thing for this delicious dessert and Fahrenheit did an AMAZING job 🙂
I truly recommend this place if you are planning to visit Dublin or a romantic dinner, or simply to celebrate a good ocassion… it won’t disappoint you 😉
Thanks for passing by x
