Trade Winds is always my first choice for a meal regardless of the occasion. It never disappoints! The food, staff and atmosphere are flawless. As a chef, menus can bore me but I never fail to find something different to try each time at Trade Winds! That said, i regularly have the rack of lamb, it's just too good!

Went to the excellent Trade Winds on our first night, returned on day two, and then completed the hat-trick the following evening. If we return to Cobh in the future then the Trade Winds will once again be our choice.

Dined here with my girlfriend during the weekend and cannot speak my highly enough of this place. It's about my fifth experience of dining here and each time has been as enjoyable as the last. Very reasonably priced while allowing you to order from the bar or restaurant menu regardless of time. Very friendly staff and a very enjoyable ambiance.... More
