“Good atmosphere, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

I went with a group of colleagues from work. The service was friendly and efficient. Food was good, if a little heavy, but I guess that's the local style. I had fish with some /very/ garlicky potatoes dauphinois. They also have some good options available from local craft breweries.

“The best option in Cork”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

If you have to choose one single place to eat in Cork, this is where you want to go. Delicious meal (try the ham hock), good prices (try the earlybird menu) and attentive staff.

“Excellent coeliac menu made gluten free eating easy & delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

A lovely restaurant in the heart of Cork with a casual bistro atmosphere. They have an excellent value set early dinner menu which is also available on Sunday afternoons- 3 courses plus coffee was 20€.

I was thrilled that they have an extensive gluten free menu with many options available on the set lunch, and clearly have a good handle on how to serve coeliac diners - they detailed not only the naturally gluten free dishes, but showed how others could be adapted to exclude gluten ingredients, included a note on the chips being made in same fryer as breadcrumbs and also served nice gluten free bread. Pudding wasn't even off limits with lovely icecream and a very rich chocolate pot.

The food is of high quality, large portions (even the salads), and great friendly service.

“lovely food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Had the early bird menu which is very reasonably priced and nice. Could have a bit more choice maybe but anyway was lovely. Nice atmosphere also always a buzz inside the place. Would recommend.
