We weren't able to get a table in the restaurant so settled in the tapas area and were delighted with the food and wines. Each plate was delicious! We shared a fish tasting plate.. Smoked salmon and crab plates and very tasty potatoes !

Good to see a new Tapas place in Cork but sadly the is uninspiring. Found it hard to chose anything & when we did we were not impressed. Dessert prices are crazy. Wine list good, service excellent. Hope they improve the menu though ASAP

Great tapas bar, coeliac friendly menu with bread too. Great tapas selection and quality, local craft beers and very friendly staff made it a great meal.

We managed to sneak in here on a Friday night. We hadn't booked but we got lucky. Generally it seems you need to book. The menu changes almost daily, depending on what is fresh or in season. I had carpaccio of beef to start, served with a small salad with a tasty dressing, my lovely ladyfriend had a variety of... More

This is not a French restaurant at all. The menu may sound French but it is Irish taste food. Such a disappointment. And the plate was barely filled. We went home sad and hungry!

Went here recently with my wife. We had the tapas. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable and all in all the night was great.

Had dinner here with my partner and we found it just a bit lacking !!! The atmosphere just doesn't work for me .... the food is good but kind of boring ... very little creativity in the menu.... I also think it's over priced !! We were sitting having a quiet meal, and a very loud table of 8 was... More

Brought my partner here for his birthday. Staff were very friendly and professional. Good value for money, wonderful food and even nicer wine. Tables a bit close together. Otherwise, have recommended to many friends.

Very busy, clearly well-used by local people as well as tourists. Booking advisable. Staff whizzed around, but friendly and speedy service. Food absolutely delicious.

Visited this restaurant on recommendation of some colleagues, and was quite surprised with the ambiance on the inside as it's a great surprise and doesn't really relate with the aspect the restaurant has on the outside. The candles and DJ that brings in music evolving through the night exactly matching the type of conversations and audience in the room (we... More
