Nestled above the English Market in the heart of Cork is this wonderful restaurant. It's arranged in a gallery, making use of the upper balconies around the market. Most of the produce comes from the market itself. Service is brisk and friendly. Seafood chowder was very good. The lamb stew looked terrific. I had a salad which was good. It's... More

Excellent food and service in this small, bustling restaurant. They serve well cooked local produce & have an good range of food & drinks to choose from. We had the added attraction of a live guitarist on our second visit. I can highly recommend the susages with bacon & lentils - delicious! The flour free chocolate cake was pretty good... More

This was only my second visit to Cork and on the first occasion, a few years ago, someone recommended the English Market and the Farmgate. Both are well worth a visit, so I returned for lunch with my wife and two friends. They shared my enthusiasm and we had a really well cooked two course lunch and a bottle of... More

This is first class for good quality food. I had seafood chowder with Brie and beetroot sandwich. It was fantastic. The place is always busy which tells you how good it is.

We arrived in the middle of a vey busy lunch service and were looked after excellently. We both chose the 'fish of the day' which was a roasted fillet of hake. Thick and juicy it was cooked perfectly accompanied by a... More

Great traditional food from locally sourced ingredients. Never a bad experience there and also a great atmosphere in the hustle and bustle of the English market.

Situated above the English Market in the centre of Cork City, this restaurant uses the fresh produces from the market below. Guaranteed fresh produce for each meal. I have eaten here a few times with my daughter and keep going back for more. It is very busy and a bit cramped but this is due to the location. They have... More
