I tried several restaurants in Cork and probably this is the best one in town. The special of the day was plaice with risotto and mushrooms, never eaten that before, very tasty. The flavors of the different ingredients were matching perfectly. The waitress was alone that evening and was very busy, nevertheless the service was excellent. Will come back again.

Loved the food here. Not a huge choice, but the specials were great and a little bit different. Lovely staff but the physical space, particularly near the door, is tight and cramped.

My Daughter and I visited Fenns Quay for lunch recently. It was quite small but nice and cosy. We had homemade soup and sandwiches. They were tasty and fresh. The staff were nice and friendly. We will go back maybe for dinner next time. They seem to have a good early bird menu.

From the moment we were greeted to the cheerio on the way out Fenn's Quay surpassed all expectations. We were celebrating a birthday so we tried somewhere new and boy were we glad we did. We were Fenns Quay "virgins" but we will be going back for sure. The server, a young man is a credit to the management of... More

Really enjoyed this restaurant and they have a great early bird menu. The only let down was the dessert The Black Forrest Parfait which was tiny for 6€ and very bland. It consisted of a square with ice cream in center.. Everything else was great, friendly staff, lovely wine great fish mains and beautiful starters!

Had the early bird menu on a Saturday evening recently. Four of us sat and we cleared every single course. There was nothing left on any plate, nothing. Loved it.

Simply fantastic main sea bream. So light and tasty. The gin and tonic dessert is just gorgeous so light and refreshing. The starter I had was not so great. Onion tart. Nut great selection of starters but this downside is made up for by the fantastic main and dessert choices. Had the 24 early menu. Found it to be great... More

Looked at reviews online and decided we would go there for brunch.arrived at 12 noon and ordered eggs benedict.we were told that 11.30 was the latest for breakfast only. We settled for soup and Sandwich and the room was cold about 15deg. We ate up and left and will be having eggs benedict somewhere else tomorrow.
