“Great new restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The shows are often great, though they can be pricey, I think, but for me the great thing about the Opera House now is the new eatery in the foyer. The place has gone from a dim little corner selling damp sandwiches and watery coffee to a fabulous little restaurant serving inventive, reasonable, absolutely delicious food. I come here just to meet friends and eat even without the shows.

“A Cork Jewel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Not as intimate as The Everyman Theatre but still a fantastic venue. It's great that Cork has a theatre of this size but it's even better that it's such a lovely venue with a great bar, friendly professional staff.

I don't go here half enough. I'll have to change that soon.

Top class venue.

“surprisingly good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

I had visited Opera House some eyars ago for lunch. At that stage, it was poor wuality sandwiches with tea/coffee. What a surprise to visit recently to see a lovely restaurant in the foyer. Food was fantastic. I only had soup and brown bread, but guest had minute stake. What a mistake I made!

I've been back since for the steak and you could not fault it. I think it would be great to dine here pre theatre, but you do not need to be a theatre goer to dine.

“A real asset to Cork!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

A wonderful location, and a beautiful building. A lovely way to spend an evening. The opera house itself is a lovely building, with bars/ coffee dock for a pre-show drink.
