If you like a good homemade burger well this is the place to go nice relaxed atmosphere, friendly and very helpful staff with great service. The nice surprise is that they have a great menu if your in the company of someone who doesn't fancy a burger then they have very nice options but for me it was all about... More

Their halloumi "burger" is quite simply one of the most delicious and flavorful vegetarian sandwiches I've ever tried. The only problem was not wanting to wash it down the incredible Irish craft beer they stock. Both had to be savored separately. Moreover, the skin-on fries were so fresh they tasted like they were cut to order. A "gourmet" burger that... More

I reluctantly went here as a last minute decision on a wet Friday in December. A previous visit some time ago was a disaster to say the least. I was pleasantly surprised this time. Even though we didn't have a booking we were immediately offered a table. I was a bit surprised though to have the table pointed out to... More

Delicious food, but fairly expensive (for a student, anyway!). Went with a large group, and the staff were very accommodating. Good selection of burgers, and good quality food. Will most likely return!

Ate here for the first time last weekend with my husband. Restaurant was full so there was a great atmosphere. Luckily we got a good table down the back overlooking the rest of the restaurant. All of the staff were very pleasant and efficient. All of the food was gorgeous. For starters we had the chicken wings, and the prawn... More

Enjoyed my meal here. Had a lovely blue cheese burger and my brother enjoyed the fact you could swap the bun for salad as a healthier option. Minor mix up when ordering a soft drink got brought an alcoholic drink instead though they dealt with it well.

I have been in Cork two nites for a business and both of them I went to the "Gourmet Burger Bistro": after the first one I have no doubt. The food seems carefully selected, paying attention to organic and free-range local food. I can grant for the quality of the lamb and the falafel burgers and I really appreciated the... More

Had dinner with friends on Saturday night. I made a booking over the phone and when we arrived they had the wrong name. We found the restaurant over crowded and cramped. We were ushered to our table, there was three of us and we were given a table for two. It seemed like it was all about how many people... More
