Visited this place last night whilst walking around Cork and we were all pleasantly surprised. Lovely Irish waiters and great burgers- 100% beef no doubt about that. The booths are great to sit at for groups.

Very good place to eat (Especially if you're a student!) There two meals for one offer is tremendous for poor students. If you can't avail of this discount, it is somewhat expensive. Although expensive, the food is fantastic and the portions are massive as well!

We said we only wanted desert and saw a couple sitting in front of us with menus who still hadn't ordered and were told they couldn't even give us that. Very disappointing after travelling... More

We were disappointed with the quality of the food and service. We had the ribs to start and while the meat was tender, the sauce was mostly tomato sauce.. I had the blue&bacon burger and the meat was very dry and I found a piece of tin foil in the bun. We called the waitress who took the piece to... More

was fairly disappointed with our visit here, food tasted good but when asked for a little extra cajon sauce as my daughter was really enjoying it, couldn't believe it when we were told it would cost an extra euro. Very disappointed in my dessert got a banana split and it was so plain just the banana , icecream and cream... More
