Fab food, great service, great cocktails!

Fantastic staff! Even while we waited for a table they kept us updated and looked after us! Food was definitely worth the wait for the table! Finished our meal with a really nice cocktail. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Cork :)

We walked in without a reservation but were made to feel very welcome. The barmen were helpful in suggesting local brews and the wait was okay. The selection of food is amazing : Cork is supposed to be a culinary mecca in Ireland and we were not disappointed. It was very busy, so the service was slow but friendly and... More

My husband and I had dinner here the last week in June 2015 when we stayed in Cork City. Fantastic Food. I had the ham hock dinner (local ham) and it was one of the best meals I had in Ireland. Service was top notch. This is located on Oliver Plunkett Street which is one of the main pedestrian street... More

We often eat here when on Cork and are never disappointed. The menu is always varied and interesting and the produce fresh. Consistency is one of the things we know is usually a sign of a good establishment and the Market Lane is that. I can recommend the ham hock! Will be back again

Based on a great experience at the sister restaurant next door, we went the next night to Market Lane. We were seated at the bar where I ordered a very nice Whiskey Sour. Very shortly we were seated at a table. We ordered the 22.50 early evening offer with three courses. We started with a good French onion soup. For... More

Fantastic good and service. Coeliac friendly and a wide variety to choose from. Ideal lunch experience. €10 for soup a 'half sandwich' (that you can't finish as its so big) a coffee and a chocolate desert to top it all off- mighty!
