Quick and very courteous service. Excellent food, quality, quantity and presentation. Fair price. Both me and my wife were impressed even by the kids menu (ate there with our son). Would definitely go back.

I love the Market Lane. It is one of my favorite restaurants in Cork. The quality of their food, service and beverages is top notch. The floor manager is always so cheerful and welcoming each time. My only fault would be that that the vegetarian options could be more varied. All is all very enjoyable

Had a really nice meal in Market Lane last night and lovely wine. The stand out feature, for me, was the extremely friendly service. The place has a really nice atmosphere, as well. I will definitely be back! If I had to make a complaint, it would be that the goat's cheese starter was kind of small. But, maybe I'm... More

Went here on hearing the reviews and enjoyed it. Came early for dinner at 5:00 although there were tables throughout. I very much enjoyed the lamb pie and its flaky crust, savoring every bit. Unfortunately they were out of the house stout, it must really be small batch. Murphy's made a fine substitute, I'm not that picky. Location is quite... More

We have been in Cork for a week and this is was the best evening family meal. The kids devoured all of the food which is always a good sign and he service was fantastic. Would highly recommend.

Another good one in Cork, but always busy. All the food is very fresh, supplied by local market located nearby. Local house stout (Angels) is highly recommended to try.

We had lunch in the Market Lane restaurant during a day in Cork. They have a separate gluten free menu with lots of options. The server was excellent. He listened to my questions and had excellent knowledge of gluten and cross contamination issues. My husband, who is not coeliac, ordered a club sandwich on gluten free bread. The server was... More
