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.

Went to Crawford Art Gallery Cafe for special occasion and was not dissapointed. No bookings means you have to go early not to be dissapointed. Food top class with lots of imagination - Jackie was superbly helpful and brought a dessert with candle very discretely. Highly recommend a visit.

Great spot that you should not miss... I've love it here for breakfast, lunch or a coffee. (not open for dinner). The food here is full of daily specials and so fresh. Really great staff and a beautiful room. One of my favourite places in Cork City.

The lady who served us was so nice! I asked her what the soup was like and she gave me a sample. She was a really welcoming person who made our lunch break very enjoyable. The coffee is fantastic too. What a great setting in the centre of the city...a real gem in the heart of the most wonderful city... More
