Con, the waiter is probably the best waiter I've ever come across. He is very attentive and chatty and kind. He really does look after his customers and makes you feel very welcome and at ease. The food is amazing and they have a coeliac friendly menu, which is very important for us as we only go to restaurants that... More

I have had the pleasure of eating and drinking in Mc Carthys by day and at night. The friendly staff and super food make them stand out on their own. I would highly recommend popping in for a drink, a bite to eat or for a special occasion. Check out their new spring/summer bar-b-ques as it will tickle your taste... More

My boyfriend and I went here on a nice evening date. Our server was absolutely delightful, very accommodating and friendly. The food was some of our favourite in Cork (we recommend the barbecue platter) and the atmosphere was also very nice. We left here stuffed and very happy!

I reserved this from England on the strength of the reviews, but frankly I am not sure where they are coming from. I agree that the manager John is an absolute treasure, but the food is very ordinary and the place itself pretty unwelcoming. With massive TV sets all around, hardly any customers and just local lads out for a... More
