“fab healthy full of flavour food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Just had Easter lunch in Orso and the food was fab.
My daughter had the chickpea and lentil curry with brown rice.
She said if this is healthy food she wants to eat it all the time.
The slow cooked lamb pie was to die for and the salads were so different and tasty.
We ordered 4 mains 2 cakes 3 juices and coffee all for 45 euro.
Try ordering 4 or 5 mains and sharing will def go back and try night menu.
Not forgetting the 2 waiters full of chat makes a nice change

“Unique to cork”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Great food, a bit different to other places I have ate in Cork. They have a great talent for flavour and the ingredients are really fresh and good quality.

“Amazing food, small space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

This place is super tiny. Good thing it wasn't too packed when we came here for a late lunch. My husband ordered the roasted turkey baguette which came with cranberry sauce and a delicious crispy sausage stuffing. The meat was juicy and tender. The baguette was crisp and obviously fresh baked. I had the Harissa chicken kofta in a pita. The pita seemed a lot more like Naan. It was full of fresh veg and a delicious yogurt sauce to balance out the spice. This place is excellent for a quick lunch. The food is fresh, light but satisfying.
