Amazing ! There shouldn't be a need to say any more but I have to write a minimum of 100 words ! We visited here for our wedding anniversary (it would normally be beyond our budget to visit here) and every minute spent there was a joy. Very helpful and friendly staff but the highlight, as it should be, was... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal here, recommended by a local as the best restaurant in Cork. Quiet fine dining atmosphere. Excellent wine list. Cocktails were good too. Seafood was superbly cooked and immaculately served as befits the price. Decor upmarket and comfortable, an excellent place for couples / business dinners, probably not children.

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

Recently revisited Oysters on a busy Friday night. While menu choice is somewhat limited, food is delicious with sublime hidden flavours. 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
