I had an absolutely delicious and quite unusual dish of salmon, prawns, coconut and rice. I can't remember the name of it but it was lovely and quite generous in portion. Our waiter was also friendly and attentive.

The best buzz in Cork when it comes to food, staff and ambiance - always busy with locals and tourists alike so don't miss it. Oh and if the monkfish is on its a must have!

We had a bowl of delicious French onion soup followed by Ham Hock with Kale and it was a meal and a half - a whole hock with a yummy sauce - all very good value and served by lovely young Staff. I can definitely recommend it if you want a good meal in Cork.
