This restaurant took us on short notice, brilliant service, friendly staff, excellent food. It was a very busy weekend for all the restaurants, and yet we didn't meet a cross or off hand person

I reviewed this restaurant about two years ago and it remains top class. A varied and interesting menu, good wine list and cocktails. Super service. Deserves it's reputation.

My husband and I were recently passing through Cork and wanted to have a nice lunch. We looked through tripadvisor and Market Lane was no 2 so opted for here. It opens at 1pm on a Sunday and we were one of the first in the door. The restaurant filled in 30mins!!! We were seated straight away and we had... More

I went solo here and sat at the bar. The staff there made me very welcome and were fun to interact with. The place was very busy, but the service was still excellent. I had the chicken liver pate which was very good and then the lamb pie which was filling and good. Folks in Cork pour Murphy's rather than... More

This restaurant was a very short walk from the Clarion Hotel where I was staying, so it was perfect for a refreshing lunch break after travelling that morning. Their 10 euro lunch deal was excellent. I had a bowl of Sweet Potato soup that had a bite of chilli and flavour of smoked pork. It came with a half sandwich... More

Excellent restaurant. Dined here recently, had the haddock and the lamb pie. Both excellent and no issue changing sides with one dish. On dessert and a bottle of wine brought the bill to €68, which was very good. It's a loud restaurant, but very good food and service. Would definately return.

Before I went to this restaurant someone described it as 'industrial' and it is - in all the best ways: bustling, bright, and efficient yet comfortable and inviting. I've been here a few times now and I am always impressed. They don't take bookings for groups under 8 people which means you can be waiting for up to 45 mins... More
