The only thing I might complain about was that as we were having a three course dinner and the portions were not tiny, all the lovely side vegetables remained uneaten - what a waste! The service was friendly... More

The waitresses Joanne & Kate are two of the best waitresses in cork & happy to give recommendations, make conversation & also know their wine. The food is top class, the ingredients used are the best quality you can get, it is really a gastronomic experience, a great place for a small get together but definitely a romantic venue. I... More

Was really looking forward to a great evening having been here once before. Sadly things have changed or it was a bad night. The service was so slow and out of sync, people around us who arrived after us seemed to be served well before us. The service itself was poor with one guy nearly throwing our main courses at...

We often dined in Greenes - many years ago - and I suppose we just forgot what a little gem we had on our door step. It is located just off Patrick Street - very close to Metropole Hotel and Everyman Theatre. We dined here midweek about 3 weeks ago. I couldn't believe we could barely get a table. Staff... More

Reserved table for family celebration but our night was a disappointment due to bad unfriendly service. We couldn't mix dinner with a la carte menus to convenience the kitchen - awful attitude to clients.

I have dined here on a couple of occasions. The food was good, the ambiance very pleasant and the waterfall at the back very relaxing! It is conveniently located. Yes, I would recommend this restaurant.
