Had lunch here twice in the last number of weeks and was not left disappointed! The food was absolutely delicious and everybody left happy! Well worth a visit, would highly recommend! Very little else to say - Market Lane's reputation is far from unfounded!

This is one of the nicest restaurants I've been to. Very friendly service in a buzzy atmosphere. I was really impressed with the fillet steak and bone marrow mash and followed this with an amazing peach and rasberry crumble. Also top marks to the mixologist for some insanely good mojitos.

I have visited Market Lane a good few times over the years and it is consistently good and the service is always great as well. Myself and my partner both had the Asian style tuna steaks with pickled veg and wasabi mayo, they were the last two tuna steaks available as it was so popular and with good reason! It... More

A professional service with very active and enthusiastic staff. Gorgeous food and very well presented. Astonishing tastes and very interesting and unique mix of flavors. Ideal place for a surprise diner, would it be a romantic date or a small circle birthday.

如果来到CORK,想品尝爱尔兰本地的餐馆,推荐来这里。餐馆的位置就在市中心,离BUS总站很近。这里从周一到周日,从午餐到晚餐都很忙。内部有自家制作的啤酒,餐馆+酒吧上下两层,虽然我没次来都没有预定,但等了几分钟就有了位置。因为经营的好,生意非常兴隆,即使每个桌子之间的跟离比较小,椅子也很简单只是够坐而已,不够舒适,但热情的客人总是爆满,有点噪音的感觉,二楼会好些。所以,请不要介意太多的客人,这里就象是繁忙的菜市场,MARKET嘛。 我和太太来过7次以上,前3次都是午餐,以我们看来没有太大的特色,后几次都是晚餐,经过这几次的经验,我们推荐晚餐菜单。晚餐菜单中,我强烈推荐5点到7点的EARLY EVENING OFFER 22.50欧元3道菜。一般情况下,我不太喜欢这种OFFER,因为好多餐馆都在这个MENU上打食物的折扣,虽然看上去便谊,但实际上吃的东西也被折扣了。但是这里不同,OFFER的都是热门的菜式,而且菜量上也和正餐的一样,非常推荐。 具体的是头盘:Baked Ardsallagh goat's cheese(我家太太平时不爱吃CHEESE,但是很喜欢这个); Chicken liver and brandy pate(虽然不是鹅干,但味道一点都不差,只是稍微有点油,对于我而言份量有点大); 正餐:Slow cooked west cork ham hock(这是中国的猪肘子,带骨,很大一份,非常的嫩,而且不油,旁边带的是有点象山东的大葱味的土豆泥配菜,做法一流,味道比我所能表容出的要好);Naturally smoked haddock with bacon and cabbage(平时吃鱼都是以鲜活,口味平淡为主,而这次太太点的这个很出乎意料的好味,这种煄过的鱼在超市里买过,但远没有这个好吃,旁边的酸菜同样的极棒) 这里的甜品都很好吃,而且新鲜,味道正,这个OFFER最后还带茶或者咖啡,这个套餐非常超值,重要的是在菜品上没有打折。 最后的提示是,还是上面提过的,这里忙,座椅的按排比较密,人多,声音比较乱,确实象个市场。

Probably the best meal we had in Ireland. I had a prawn and falafel starter that was impressive and only surpassed by the smoked haddock entree. Friendly and attentive service was also impressive.
