When ever I visit Cork and stay at the nearby hotel I always head to the rising tide. It's one of those tucked away little places but everyone knows it's there. The early bird menu is a steal at €20 the food is fresh and tastes great. The only gripe on this visit the burger with blue cheese could... read more

Had a very enjoyable meal here with my family. Views were beautiful even on a rainy day. Welcomed the moment we walked in the door. Both myself and my daughter are gluten and dairy intolerant but the French waiter organised with the chef a beautiful meal for both of us with no bother. Also managed to have a delicious desert...

Food not great & very very slow. Took an hour to get main course. Screaming toddlers didn't help the situation. We won't go back.

I hadn't been here for years and with the hype decided to come back with my husband and son. Let me start with the positive, our waiter, Olivier was lovely, very pleasant. Sadly that's where it ends. The food was awful!! We ordered sausages and chips for our son, you would think you can't go wrong her but the sausages... More

I contacted Sandra and from the get go gave the green light on whatever we wanted. She tailored the menu and even had them personalised. The food was exceptional from starter to... More

After a bad experience at this restaurant a few years ago, when I vowed never to return, I broke my vow and visited it again recently. I needn't have bothered. This restaurant is miles outside the city centre in the suburb of Glounthaune and it really needs to up its game, its way off track in terms of a decent... More

I had warm chicken & bacon salad, the chicken was dry & overcooked the bacon was virtually non existent & the salad leaves were wilted.Others in the group also felt the food while not terrible, was...

I bought a voucher on grab one a couple of weeks ago for here as I have always wanted to try it as I heard it was nice. When we walked into the restaurant it was busy enough for a Sunday evening but nothing major. When we sat down we were told it would be a 20 min wait for... More
