Myself and my family visit the Maritime Hotel very regular as we live in Bantry although I cant really comment at staying in the hotel as I never have we always go for food or to the bar for drinks the staff are all lovely and always very welcoming.We decided to go for the 5 course New Years Eve meal in the Ocean restaurant and we were quite disappointed with the food my husbands mouth was burnt off as the ribs he had ordered for his starter were far to hot and spicy he had to leave them as it was impossible to eat I mentioned this to the waitress but it was just a case of oh were they too hot sorry about that.His steak was also not cooked to how he had asked but he got on with it I have to say however that my steak was cooked perfectly.The desserts I have to say were of a very low standard they looked beautiful but unfortunately didn't taste beautiful which is what we were expecting on our New Years meal.Also what puzzled me is that on the advertisement for the meal it stated that their resident pianist would be playing while we ate our meal creating the perfect ambience this did not happen and there wasn't a piano in sight so therefore really shouldn't be advertised.A very disappointing night was had the music was great but only because it was Noel and Alfonse such talented guys however zero ambience yet again in the bar.After our glass of Champagne at twelve we left to go elsewhere.The food that is produced for the fiver Friday in the hotel bar is off much higher quality than the food served in the Ocean restaurant.We expected more.
