Firstly, we were left standing at the door for several minutes as staff walked back and forth past us. A simple acknowledgement that we were there would have sufficed. Secondly, the waiter made a point of making needless small talk with us right the way through our starter, as he struggled to get the wine bottle open. I absolutely appreciate... More

Great service (as ever) and the food seems to get better with each visit - as unlikely as that seems. Every course blew us away with mouth watering flavours that left us on cloud 9. Amazing work Orchids! Be sitting down again with you soon....

Went for lunch with a friend and unfortunatley we were a little rushed so we could not fully enjoy the wondeful expereince. The goat cheese and strawberry starter was a total surprise, wonderful. Everything was excellent, food as mouth watering, setting lovely, service top classs and the company was great

Myself and my husband ate in Orchids Restaurant on Saturday 1st August, between us 2 out of the 6 courses were substandard. My husband ordered John Dory for his main which arrived very overcooked. He did make an effort to eat most of it but we did point out to the waiter when collecting the plates and we got a... More

Excellent food, across 5 courses - flavors in every bite. Beautiful Saint Emillion to complement the meal. Cannot recommend highly enough if you are looking for fine dining.

We had an incredible experience in Orchids Restaurant at Hayfield Manor last night, from the moment you arrive at this very special Cork hotel time seems to slow down to a relaxed, more elegant feeling pace. We tried some of the many cocktails on offer in the Manor Bar which were dangerously tasty (the mojito was amazing) and then went... More

Dined at Orchids twice while staying at Hayfield Manor Hotel, and both meals were excellent. We were seated promptly on arrival, and the setting was both comfortable and lovely. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. The menu was broad and imaginative, with something for every taste. (Of note, the bread was simply addictive, and served with creamy... More
