Have eaten here a few times before and generally good. Ate there last night and although the food wasn't bad the choice was pretty limited and we waited a very long time indeed. The biggest let down was the service. They were all polite but inefficient. Drinks ordered didn't arrive, left waiting to order for extended periods, etc. it kind... More

Had been looking forward to eating here as missed out on doing so last year but service erratic and at times poor and food not as good as we'd expected.Without the waterfall at rear of premises think a lot less people would attend.Needs to up it's game as lots of good restaurant competition in Cork.

We had dinner at Greene's Restaurant during our recent short break in Cork City. The food was really excellent and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had the early bird menu which was actually available all evening. The décor of the dining room itself was very bland and uninviting - it felt like an old-fashioned hotel dining room... More

We were going to see the excellent Love, Peace and Robbery in the Everyman Theatre and booked dinner for 6.30pm. We explained to our waitress that we were under a little time pressure and she and the other staff involved(including the chef) all conspired to produce a superb 3 course meal to us and had us out the door in...

Loved Greene's In MacCurtain St Cork. Great location up a cobbled alley, with outside tables beside a waterfall. Great menu and knowledgable staff and wonderful craft Stonewell Cider. Service was excellent and the starters were imaginative, some served on a slate. Mains were brilliant and good quality choice of vegetables. It was so friendly and relaxing, near a theatre, a...

Our work place recently ate here for dinner, it was my first time here and I wasn't disappointed. The setting is very romantic with the small waterfall right outside which can be seen from most tables, this restaurant even has outdoor seating for smaller numbers. We were a large group and our server was very attentive and explained any questions... More

My first time in this restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised..it's a bit hidden away up a small alley but you,re greeted with a lovely waterfall, fantastic ambience in the middle of the city. I only had a light lunch but the food was very nice and an affordable price. Also the staff were very nice
