Beautiful cakes and baked-goods as you come through the deli shop to the front, but if you want to stop for lunch, this is a really nice restaurant, and our meals were tasty and fresh. The pasta dishes were especially nice, and the garlic bread was delicious.

Wonderful service, all choices over starters, mains and desserts absolutely delicious. Wine list updated since my last... More

My husband and I have eaten at the Farm Gate a number of times recently and have not been disappointed. The food is excellent, fresh and local and delightfully prepared. There is a substantial choice on the menu, and what is particularly appealing to us is the choice of fresh fish, turbot, monkfish, plaice to name but a few. This... More

We have had the pleasure of dining at Farmgate on a number of occasions – both in the main dining area and the ambient wine bar section. This evening we decided to try out their new covered Courtyard and it was simply superb! The meet and greet was so friendly and genuinely sincere. The whole team have an ability to... More

Long time devotees to FG as we live locally. East Cork has many eateries on par with anywhere but this is the best of the best. Unusually for a restaurant we have NEVER had other than a fantastic meal. The ambience in the FG is great ...local cut flowers, the dessert table, the old fashioned pharmacists cabinet ...bakery aromas all... More

Dropped in here for lunch today on a day trip to Cork. Having eaten here before it is always a treat and today didn't disappoint. We ate in the newly opened room and wow it was just amazing. Eating great food al fresco in the most beautiful surroundings is not very common in Ireland but the Farmgate has pulled this... More

Visited here last Saturday night as we were staying with family locally. Called late to see if there was availability as we got last minute babysitter offer. Although they couldn't take us at our preferred time, we opted for "the first sitting". Place has changed/grown a lot since our last visit 2 years ago which is unusual to see in... More
