Great food. Tiny portions

The waiter recommended the set menu. The portions were minute. My husband went home and devoured half a chicken from the fridge. Can't fault the flavour or taste sensations. It was just a pity there wasn't enough!

This restaurant was recommended by someone to our party of 8. The food was good and a it has a busy atmosphere. The staff is way to busy and that you have to wait for the bill for 25 minutes is not good. I would go back for the food.

We called in here last Friday. Fortuitously, we had made a booking the night before, as people ahead of is in queue had no bookings and as the Bible says, they were 'sent empty away'. Our reservation was for 7pm and we arrived around 650pm. We were told that table would be available in about 15 mins, so we ordered... More

We ate here early in a Sunday evening. I had a voucher for a tasting menu and it was absolutely beautiful. There is no problem tailoring the menu to suit your food preferences and the view out at the waterfall was stunning, the staff are very welcoming and professional . They are very knowledgable about the food and wine and... More

We voted this our best dining experience in Ireland. Presentation 1st class, flavour "sensational" my goats cheese entree was amazing, pork belly divine. Daughter's mushroom risotto was to die for (I hate risotto)

The food was lovely. However we went for the early bird menu and no potatoes or vegetables were served with the main course. We had 4 tables and service was quite poor. I was at the 4th table being served every time and we received our food quite a long time after the first table had been served.

The setting, walking to the restaurant down the cobbled alley really sets everything up for your meal, just before you enter you're met with peaceful beauty of a "waterfall" trickling down. Instantly the service was warm, welcoming & friendly. Greenes came highly recommended & immediately started to fulfil it's promise. I had the local rare breed pork to start &... More

I literally cannot fault this restaurant. The food was amazing, the staff were so very nice and the ambience was one of the best in Cork. I went for my birthday and we got a lovely table looking at the waterfall. The manager gave us a complementary glass of Prosecco when she heard it was my birthday and it was... More

Truly special experience. Expertly served in a beautiful location beside the waterfall. Each unique dish perfectly described by our server and declicious wine servings to compliment each course.
