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

Excellent food, cannot recommend it enough. High Quality food and very good service. Very good selection of dishes and wines. Restaurant very cosy and private. Wasn't open on the Sunday or Monday nights which was dissapointing

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...

Culinary atmosphere for the period in time was perfect. What a lovely and cozy room for dining. Service was immediate at the beginning and slowed as We progressed. Salads were fresh, fish of the day was flavourful and with generous portions of sides. Wine list was above average and We encourage the addition of some fine European still roses. Dessert... More
