Looks are deceiving (in a good way)

You couldnt' quite tell how large the place is when you enter. The courtyard makes for a lobvely spot, especially if you are in large groups. Pizza was nice. Staff are friendly and very accommodating. Been there a few times for work and we've always had a great time. Only one slight criticism... read more

New outdoor patio was beautiful and offered comfortable seating for all. Relaxing atmosphere to sit and chat before dinner. "Captain's Table" dining area was beautifully set up. We had been traveling all day yet felt so comfortable in this relaxed, yet elegant setting.

This was my third visit to this establishment and I don't know how it's possible to get better each time, but it was! The food is exquisite, the ambience is delightful but what gets the highest rating is the staff. They are professional, friendly and accommodating. Why, even the owner stops by to chat and check on things. If you... More

We had the early bird menu and we were positively delighted at the standard of service and excellent quality of the food. For... More

Recently we travelled to Ireland. We visited the Flying Enterprise on several of the evenings in Cork because of its fabulous atmosphere and great frood. The staff were friendly and responsive to our needs. The food both in the courtyard (pub style cuisine) and the restuarant (fine dining) were the best meals we had in Ireland. On a good weather...

My niece wanted a family hen party in Cork. The age range was from 22 to 67 years and we had a wonderful evening on 4th July. Even the rain could not dampen our spirits. The staff were fabulous, the food was very good and the entertainment was great. We had an evening to remember.
