The staff here are excellent warm and attentive! The starter of scallops and foie gras were perfectly executed. The lamb main was truly a triumph. Best ever! Venison was good too. Dessert of crumble and bakewell tart were good but didn't have the same wow factor as the starters and mains. We enjoyed them all the same. Maybe add some... More

Orchid's offers a great menu for all persons. My family and I ate there over a three night stay and loved the quality, quantity and presentation of the food. All was amazing.

Food was great. Tried a little too hard sometimes but was pretty impressed overall. Orange seemed to be the Iron Chef ingredient of the week and was in everything (even the soup) but thankfully I like orange.

The restaurant is nice enough to enjoy an upscale dinner, but it is really nice for breakfast. The offering is varied and very good. If there's anything you would like from the kitchen, they'll be happy to make it for you. Thoroughly enjoyed my meals during my stay.

This restaurant is located in the beautiful 5 star Hayfield Manor Hotel which is a quiet oasis in the heart of Cork City. On the night we visited the restaurant was really busy with both residents and non residents. Staff were excellent and looked after all our needs without being in any way intrusive. Food was sublime from start to... More

You are likely to enjoy the food and service at this restaurant. It is quite suitable for a romantic dinner. There is one nitpick worth noting though. The staff at Orchid's Restaurant appeared to vanish towards the end of the evening which put a slight dampener on the otherwise wonderful service. After being served coffee no one was present in...
