Found this place just alongside the distillery as we were heading in. We booked there and then as it was a Saturday & were very glad we did as it was hopping later that evening. Met the owner, lovely gent who sat us at our table and advised us on the menu. Food was excellent, presented well & fresh fish was used for my partners meal. Although the restaurant was full the service was busy, not rushed, which speaks well of the staff.
Tables were a little close for intimacy though, perhaps the strategic sacrifice of a few particular tables would up the romance a notch. A select area for pre-booked couples, slightly more plush might be worth looking at.
I have returned twice since when I have been in Cork, choosing to travel out of the city to Midleton. Good food is worth the effort!
