I have been coming to Captain Americas for about 5 years now and I always love the staff in there. So friendly and accommodating.kids meals are good value and Oreo milkshakes so tasty! I don't get into Cork city often enough but when I do you just can't go wrong with Captain Americas or Wagamama downstairs. Keep up the wonderful... More

I hadn't visited Captain Americas in a few years but always had good experiences of the place in the past, so decided to try it again recently. It was so so disappointing. I shared a portion of garlic bread to start which actually wasn't bad but it was accompanied by a small side salad garnish which looked as if it... More

I've eaten here before a few years back and was quite happy but unfortunately last week I ate here again with four friends and was very disappointed. We figured it'd be a good place for an casual meal with a few beers. We were wrong. When ordering chicken goujons as a starter my cousin got 3 thumb sized goujons. Which... More

And when i mean well done, i am indeed talking of the way the meat is cooked overhere: whatever are your preferences in that matter, 'medium rare' isnt oart of the chef's vocabulary. I won't say much as recently, people get sued for less.

I eat here from time to time when friends want to eat out in town, every time i eat here I come away wondering, why do I come back here, there are vastly superior eating options in the city at a similar price point, on one of my last visits my microwaved starter simply hadn't been microwaved well enough and...
