Oysters is a reasonably high priced seafood restaurant in the Clarion hotel in Cork city. All of the food and wine that we had was delicious - no argument there. We had a great time catching up with friends but you bring your own atmosphere here - the design and ambiance of the dining room itself, while new and pleasant,... More

We ate fish for both starter and main course and were not disappointed with the monkfish risotto being outstanding. While not usually a dessert person it was hard to pass the Cafe Gourmand which allowed one to choose any... More

We both chose from... More

Visited Oysters Restaurant with a group of 10 family members ranging in age from 23 to 92 and everyone was thrilled with the food. Each course was beautifully presented and delicious. The service was incredible and made for a very enjoyable family celebration. Looking forward to visiting again soon.
