Much cheaper than other vegetarian restuarants and good quality. I had a lovely chickpea stew. I'd reccommend.

Perfect vegetarian food, in the center of the city. Fast efficient service and lovely homely feel to the tables and chairs. The choice of food was great and the desserts were wonderful. I would eat here again.

This is a casual kinda lunch place, not a gourmet restaurant or anything, but the food is pretty nice. It's healthy whole food and quite filling, so if that's what you're looking for then it's great. I'm vegan and coeliac so it's good to have options and it's clearly marked on the menu what is vegan and gluten free. It's... More

We have eaten at this restaurant three times on two separate trips. We are from Los Angeles, California in the United States, and this is the best vegetarian restaurant we have found in our travels to different parts of our own country and other places in the world. Each time we went, the menu was different, but all of the... More

I occasionally stay over in Cork and wasn't aware of The Quay Co-op until I decided to use Trip Advisor (genius, I know!). Reviews looked good and it didn't disappoint. They know their wholefoods and their vegetarian and while decor is simple and more cafe than restaurant, I'll be back again for a reliable meal that is sensibly priced. They... More

This place is on the go for the last twenty-odd years. The food is great value and the space is bright and clean with a new art exhibition on the walls every few weeks. There is a real sense if community, Always check out the notice boards and posters on the stairs to see what's happening in Cork.

The Quay Co-op is a great place to grab a quick healthy lunch or dinner. The salads are always fresh and differ from day to day. The burgers are beautiful and always topped with lovely homemade sauces. I love this place!
