Try the flourless chocolate cake.

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

Went for lunch today with my Mum. The food was gorgeous, unusual dishes beautifully cooked and presented. Lovely staff, very helpful and friendly. We liked it so much we went back for afternoon tea. Would have no hesitation in going back again. Just a couple of points though, the doors are very heavy and stiff, we found them difficult to... More

Ordered the pancakes which looked delicious however unfortunately the second of which was still completely raw on the inside. The waiter replaced the dish however we had to wait quite a while for this and no apology was forthcoming. Overall service was only average, I won't be back in a hurry.

We were there for lunch by chance. The staff was very kind and food was quite good. Cups for tea were beautiful and dessert delicious.
