Market Lane was suggested to us as a favorite of our consierge at the Ambassador Hotel. She could not possibly have sent us to a better spot for dinner. The atmosphere there was very pleasant, the wait staff lovely and attentive, and the food... oh my goodness, the food! It was divine! I'm ready to travel back to Ireland just... More

Loved the vegetarian dish I got. It was very tasty.and very reasonably priced. However I thought the flour less choc cake was very bland. Would return for the veggie dish

I ordered the soup of the day (butternut squash and chicken soup) and roast chicken with sweet potatoes and broccoli. My friend who is ceoliac, was given a gluten-free menu with... More

The food was excellent. The service was friendly and attentive. The prices were fair. What more can you ask for? We went with a group of 5 people, didn't even have to wait for a table. Pretty much everything on the menu sounded delicious. They had a special of grilled cod with crushed potatoes, pickled fennel and rocket salad with... More

The food is given in just the right portions and are very tasty. Deserts are lovely. I recently tried there new addition which was the half baked chocolate cake. It was divine and just the right size.... More

For all those skeptics out there, yes you can have delicious Irish food, and the lamb pie at Market Lane is the example. The filet was equally tasty. Service was attentive and paced appropriately. Very nice experience.

We had a very nice dinner at Market Lane this week. It was very busy. We would definitely come back here, but not for a romantic dinner :-)

Our server was friendly and well-informed. Manager very hands-on, oversees every aspect of dining experience. Thank you for being so accomodating with our wheelchair. Menu choice amazing, caters well for vegetarian and low calorie diets. Most flavourful dishes we have ever eaten. This was our second visit and we look forward to returning when next we are in Cork.
