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

Greene's had good score on Google so we tried it. It is a try hidden gem - the food, all 3 courses were simply outstanding. I have been around good restaurants but Greene's impressed me and it's a good reason to come back to Cork!

This was an outstanding gourmet treat, we had the A'lacarte menu but could easily have chosen several options from the early bird menu as the choice was amazing.

Somewhat hidden away in my opinion but well worth seeking out - especially when you find a rare parking place as I did right outside the entrance. Quirky entrance takes you face to face with what at first glance appears to be a tumbling indoor waterfall and then transpires to be a real wall of rock down which trickles a... More
