The staff were quite excellent. We had our 4 month son with us in a pram and were found a table that suited us... read more

I had a beautiful meal here on a Saturday evening with friends. The food was excellent. Staff were lovely. Good selection of drinks. Varied menu. The only problem with this restaurant is that you cannot book a table. We arrived at 8pm. The friendly lady at reception took our number and said she would ring in about 40-45 mins. We... More

Great place in Cork, very nice bar and restaurant, always crowded but the extremely and efficient staff will find an accommodation. Food is refined and very good, great choice of beers. I had Roast monkfish and Dark chocolate as dessert, all was very good. Prices are in Cork average.

The availability of the Elbow Lane craft beers is a bonus. Service was perfect. The price was good too. All in all,... More

We stopped in for lunch on a busy Friday the place was buzzing, great food, service and atmosphere. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful and the food was excellent.
