For something a little different

Returned to Fenn's Quay after 3 years and was just as happy as the last time. Most of the dishes are a little different from the usual. Excellent service, well priced for the standard of food.

This is a fabulous little restaurant in the heart of Cork but a little off the beaten track. Excellent cooking and use of local ingredients. The staff are friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the food & there are some very interesting dishes served.

A couple coworkers treated me to dinner here in January. A cozy place, though not sure how big it may be. Food was rather good, though I only had a starter and some wine. The only ding was that our server wasn't very pleasant. While we had originally booked for 6, we ended up with just 2 to start and... More

Lovely restaurant in a great location. I've been going here since it opened and have never been disappointed. Very welcoming and helpful staff. The early dinner special includes a starter, main and dessert for 24 euro. This is excellent value for such delicious food, the feather blade of beef is to die for!

We got a table here at the last minute and we didn't realise how lucky we were to be. The resturant is small but the food is delicious. Fresh,tasty and plenty of of it. The mashed potatoe was a delight. The staff were charming and fun. Fine dining at a great price.

The food and service is excellent and the staff are always interested in receiving feedback on their menu. It's a charming spot and they deserve the high praise they have received.

I was curious to eat here as I've heard great things (which obviously can bias). Had a dinner with my brother and we were underwhelmed. Overall the atmosphere was nice and the staff were friendly. My fillet steak was very tasty but medium well rather than the rare I ordered, the chips were soggy and the side salad was mean... More

A relaxed but also very competent restaurant. The service was most professional and the range and quality of the food excellent. Enough space to have a conversation without hearing your neighbours or having their elbows in your food.

Possibly one of the best brunch experiences I have ever had. Met with a smiling staff member in a restaurant drowned in the scent of brunch and lilies. As we sat we were informed by Maria, A Kerry export locally sourced, that it was the blessing of the lilies day in the church across the road, Locals always a good... More

Had a lovely dinner here as a solo traveler. The wait staff made me feel welcome and didn't rush me in any way. The spiced walnuts were a simple starter-- there is an unexpected curry in the spice mix. I had the cod-- really delicious. This is a little spot easily overlooked but worth a visit.
