A hidden gem

The menus are short but the quality of the food service and was excellent. The galleries are worth a visit too! If I had a criticism it would be that it is ever so slightly over priced but it wouldn't stop me returning.

I have enjoyed on 2 occasions, a trip here. Both trips were a lovely experience. Friendly, down to earth staff, relaxed and pretty surroundings and attention to detail make this a lovely venue for a relaxing cuppa or a tasty lunch. Don't ever change!

Very crowded and the service is therefore is a little slow. Nice food but pricier than it should be. Good location and setting. Not a place to read a newspaper though.

We were here for a wedding, the food was amazing and extra delicious. Didn't pay for it, so couldn't say the price, but the value is excellent. Staff is very friendly. The only negative I have to say is, when you first walk in, the place stinks of old musty smells.

Came here for coffee and cakes. Nice little cafe with a good atmosphere. I had the flourless chocolate cake which was delicious.

Popped in mid afternoon and had superb lunch. Girlfriend had their signature dish (mushroom pancake) and has been raving about it for days. We ate very well in cork some great foods and drink but this was a standout. My meal was superb too with fabulous bone marrow. Situated inside the gallery cafe doesn't look grand but food is a...

A few other gallery and museum cafes could learn from this place. Stylish but laid-back setting, friendly service, great food from the local area. Not cheap but still good value. Generous portions. Good option for a slightly more upmarket (but not excessively so) lunch.

Yes the food was good. And the setting is specially peaceful in the city. But really the prices are a little steep.

The setting is lovely, staff really friendly and efficient but the food was mediocre and I can't get over paying €11.50 for bruschetta - i.e. one piece of bread with pesto, pieces of mozzarella and a couple of sundried tomatoes. Get over yourselves - there are plenty of great venues in Cork to eat as I found out later and... More

A lovely space - very light and airy - in a lovely venue, The Crawford Art Gallery. We have always had good food and a motherly welcome when we have eaten here - breakfasts, lunches, coffee and cake. The food is always good and really tastes home-made. Sometimes hard to get a table as it is so popular, but worth... More
