Always top notch!

This place always wins for me. It's always fresh and tasty. The menu changes and keeps it interesting. It feels like a lot of love went into every dish!

Evidently it is illegal to serve or sell liquor on Good Friday in Ireland, so everything was jam packed on Thursday night. After being turned away from a few places, someone told us how to find Fenn's Quay and we got the last available table. We had chicken livers with bleu cheese ice cream (yes, you read that right!), which... More

I was taken to this by a resident of Cork who named it her favourite restaurant. I can see why. Exceptionally well-prepared and well-presented food, served with charm and attentiveness, but in an atmopshere that is relaxed and bistro-like. You would almost miss the restaurant since it has a narrow unobtrusive street frontage, but it goes back through several areas... More

Had the pleasure of enjoying a wonderful meal with a group of friends in Fenn's Quay. I arrived early and was seated promptly by a very pleasant young man who let me know that service was 'what he was paid for'.... The meal was delicious (Early Bird - Eur24.00) with details of where the food was sourced locally, on the... More

Dined in Fenn's on a Friday night and we were absolutely delighted. The menu was superb and the food was stunning. We would highly recommend this fantastic restaurant. The chef even came out and chatted to us, so we are already planning our return. Decor feels a bit like a student den but who cares when the food is this... More

Friends of mine came to Cork and gave me a last minute notification to come to dinner, without a reservation...on a Saturday night! Called Fenn's Quay at 5pm looking for a table of 6 for that night. A very helpful girl said that she would contact one party first and returned my call 10 minutes later confirming they could fit... More

Because of St. Patricks Day I called Fenn's 4 weeks ago and made a reservation for tonight. Taxi from the hotel to the restaurant just to meet a closed restaurant. No one called us (they afsked for my number when I made the reservation). So taxi back to the hotel and already €20 short! So if you have reservation in... More

I went here for a family meal 2 weeks ago and the food was amazing. I had a spicy soup to start which was amazing followed by bacon and cabbage for main and flourless chocolate cake for dessert. All were gluten free and so tasty. The waiter was really nice aswell and told me that the recipe for the chocolate... More
