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

Beautiful food, especially fish, oysters, of course, swordfish,crab,hake, very nicely cooked and presented, but also do meat and vegetarion dishes, and delicious deserts. Early bird menu very good value, 24 euro for 2 courses. Great place for a 'special occasion' meal

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

I was suprised to find this was a hotel lobby restaurant and it is distinctly lacking in both atmosphere and service. Limited menu choice. Several items unavailable. My 'special' was mediocre. And pricey! We escaped in under an hour. This is not the best Cork has to offer.

I brought my girlfriend there for dinner last week. Don't get me wrong it wasn't bad, the food was good. But good doesn't cut it for a 90€ bill (1 starter, 2 mains and a wine carafe). The hotel looks very nice but the restaurant itself looks ok, nice but nothing special though. My only positive point is the piano... More
