Really good food & nice outdoor setting

The food here is quite unique but very good. The exterior with the waterfall is beautiful, the inside could do with a revamp however. The Staff are top class too.

Without a single doubt 5🌟All round. Food like iv never tasted before. Exquisite is word that comes to mind. Expertly trained staff who can answer any(and I mean any) question about wine and food. Other establishments need to come here and learn how a 5🌟restaurant should be... Well done to all!.. Il be back very soon....

To say this was a disappointment is to put it mildly. The chef was the top rated chef in Cork in 2015, so we expected to have a pleasant and memorable experience. Lets start with the main dining room. Its large, but lacks comfort. Its a room designed for efficiency. Now comes the wine. There were exactly 9 choices of... More

As we were seated a large group arrived which was a reservation as the table was already set up. The food was excellent but during the meal I... More

I almost forgot to review this little gem in Cork. The service is breathtaking, not just random good service but colorful and very attentive personalities, I could see staff was proud of working there. Usually when getting the 8 course menu at good restaurants you get plenty of info about what is that you are about to eat, staff there... More

I was really surprised at how incredible the food looked and tasted in Greenes and am really surprised that it's not ranked much higher on the list of Cork's best. Service was absolutely second to none - smiling faces, perfect serving etiquette, knowledge of the food they were serving and passion for it. Would be delighted to recommend to anyone.... More

Food is incredibly good quality and cooked to perfection. Meal aside, the staff alone would be a reason to return, who were extremely friendly and welcoming on arrival and departure. I have no flaws for this restaurant .
