“Rude staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

To be fair, I can't review the food as we didn't get that far. After waiting 5 minutes at the door for some eye contact from the waiters, we we're given a look- not words- that said " what do you want" I asked for a table for three ( I could see two empty ones) and was told "we are full, we have big table upstairs". She rushed off. Thinking maybe there had been a misunderstanding we thought we would ask another waiter coming towards us. Before we could he said, " get out of the way" . I noticed to two tables nearest where we were standing, one had 9 empty beer bottles ( table of three) and another full of dirty plates and leftover food..... Shame because we are staying in cork for a few days and would have booked a table for another night... Not now though.

“It was ok, expected more from the reviews”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

I had the fishcakes and they were cold and not very tasty. I had the ribeye which was nice with blue cheese and red onion. The desert we shared was raspberry cheesecake and that was not great.

“Overdue Review of an Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I have been talking about this restaurant verbally for the last 5/6 years. It is popular with both the people of Cork and tourists alike and has built up some reputation for excellence. Congratulations to Trina and her super team who give excellent food, value, service and choice. Atmosphere amazing always with a great "buzz" It is our family's 1st choice when going out for a meal. Location excellent in the City Centre. House wine reasonably priced. €21 per person for a 3 course meal

“top class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

just had a family celebration dinner here last evening.€21 per person for starter, main, dessert and coffee & a bottle of house red for €15. food was excellent, service was very attentive and the lady who i think was the owner was very much on top of everything. very cosy atmosphere on what was a wet miserable evening outside created by a blazing stove in a recessed fireplace. we will definitely be back again. just make sure you have a reservation as this restaurant is really busy

“Excellent Food with excellent value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Excellent menu choice in the 3 course meal for €20, including cooked to perfection fillet/sirloin/rib eye steaks.

The steaks themselves were worth more than the special deal, with an appetising starter menu different from the norm, finished with mouth watering desserts.

I noted people bring their own wine, so its something to enquire about before you go.

Service was attentive, Will be back.
