Had a great dinner on the Terrace. Waiters are very Nice and pleasant. Food is simple but very tasty - special option for the warm chicken salad and its excellent soy sauce. Will be back for another quiet night out.

Came to the Flying Enterprise for breakfast after a fun filled night out in Cork city By night this Gastro Pub isn't a bad venue, good music and a half decent Atmosphere.. Staff are friendly, polite and very helpful. The full Irish breakfast was great!

The pub itself is beautifully finished, with very nice woodwork, but we ate in the outside courtyard. There is a large covered area with its own bar, and... More

Great food, reasonably priced, choice of indoors, court-yard or cabin seating(outdoors but covered overlooking the court-yard). The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Very convenient location close to the city centre.

We have been returning to the Flying Enterprise for over 15 years now. We loved the toastie sandwiches in the small bar before it expanded into the Complex that it is today. We have eaten in the bar and in the restaurant and BBQ in the Courtyard and we cannot fault any part of it. The new addition of Pizza's... More
