Great for an Occasion!

We went here for our children's birthdays. It was really great at night as we had a table looking at the waterfall. Such a unique feature in the middle of the city.

This is a restaurant I cannot praise highly enough. I've lived in Cork for ten years but had never been before. I got a voucher along with my ticket for a show in the Everyman across the road for a pre theatre menu and decided to try it out. The warm welcome from the most charming staff was a good... More

This is a lovely restaurant with a wonderful reputation but unfortunately, this was not reflected in our evening overall. The food was nice, but nothing special. The staff are really friendly but we got the distinct impression that they were somewhat mismanaged, incorrect drink orders, overcharged on the bill, no water. It took an hour for our starters to arrive,... More

I arrived late in Cork and we had dinner with a group of people in this place. I have to say that the food was outstanding and I enjoyed it a lot. The staff was very friendly and professional. I had a dish with lamb and it just melted in my mouth. If you are in Cork then you should... More

Firstly, all the positives I have to point out that the food was amazingly good, what I loved was that the food was largely allowed to speak for itself with perfect textures and flavours, and no one taste ever overpowering anything else. The food artistry was amazing, and made a really special meal even better. The food is by no... More

What a fabulous setting for Valentines. We were sat overlooking a cascading waterfall full of colour and lit by candles, stunning. Unfortunately that's where the fairytale ended for us. So enthused were we by the fantastic looking a la carte menu, with wonderful dishes on show that we asked if the tasting menu encompassed some of these dishes. It certainly... More

Really looked forward to this restaurant but we were so disappointed with the end result. I don't mind long detailed menus offering textures and froths and foams but when the food is barley warm then i do question why not get the basics right first. Also there was a long wait between each course which would be acceptable if the... More

I haven't eaten in Greene's restaurant for a few years, but I remember the menu and food being of very high standard. The restaurant has a good name in Cork, so I was looking forward to returning. I dined there with 5 friends before attending the opera at The Everyman Theatre across the road. We had booked our table for... More

Living in Cork ten years and ashamed to say this was my first visit to Greenes. There were a party of 8 of us and we availed of the Early Bird Pre Theatre Menu. What can I say, we were so impressed by the menu, great attention to detail, plenty of choice and all really tasty. Super value, great surroundings... More
