My family and I went to CAs for a fathers day meal. What stuck out for me (the father) was the extremely friendly and helpful staff. The meal was really enjoyable with all family members really enjoying the food that they selected from the menu. To the staff thank you for making the experience of a family meal so enjoyable.

First time here on a busy Sunday afternoon. We didn't book but were seated quickly. Lovely, accommodating staff and huge choice. Between us we had a yummy bruschetta (so fresh), jalapeno poppers, ribs, philly cheese steak and New York burger. Everything was delicious and we finished every bite. Its the closest restaurant in Cork that reminds me of Chilis in... More

Dined here this evening; staff pleasant but food awful, greasy and poor quality. No Pizza or chicken wings left when we arrived, combo starter arrived with a bowl of chips instead of wedges (had run out), steak arrived with no green pepper sauce (had run out). Later on no fajitas... Kids' burgers were too dry and cheese too stringy. Meat... More
