I was checking a seafood place in Cork and saw this from TripAdvisor. I was interested in their pre-7pm set menu of 27 euros for a three-course meal. I arrived just a bit before 7pm and was warmly welcomed. The manager is very friendly, so are the waiters/waitresses. The food was excellent, I had seafood chowder, swordfish and cake, all... More

I booked through Tripadvisor the day before and didn't get a confirmation until the next day, but it didn't really matter. It was our anniversary celebration dinner and I appreciated the attention of the staff who made sure to place us in at quiet and a little more isolated table. Our waitress was really nice and answered patiently my questions... More

I ate here on a Friday night and it was excellent. Made reservations via the website and the manager called to confirm which was nice. They had no oysters as there was an issue in the South of Ireland but they let us know immediately so it wasn't a big deal, and frankly I would rather them just say we... More

Myself and work colleagues went here for a work night out, a group of about 20 of us. The service in the restaurant was very good, very attentive and always filling your glass. The food tasted nice just wish there was more of it on the plate. Artistically to the eye when it comes out looks fantastic but very small... More
