Visited for lunch on Saturday, very busy but we were lucky to get a table at once, some people had to queue - but it is worth doing so. I had crab salad - a lovely big helping of beautiful fresh crab with a delicious salad, my daughter had veg lasagne with goat's cheese, very good. Lots of gorgeous-looking cakes... More

I have eaten here both for breakfast and lunch. The food is always delicious and always fresh. It can be very busy and you may have to wait in line for a table but it's well worth it. Staff are lovely and if you get a seat by the ledge then you have a lovely view of the shoppers at... More

No wait for a table but it's not particularly clear that if you turn right at the top of the stairs you self seat and order at the counter. This area was fairly busy with only vacant seats along the 'bar stool' area. We realised that if you turn left at the top of the stairs, this takes you to... More

Nicely located in the eaves of the market it was very busy - 10 minute wait for a table. When seated it is a bit cramped and crowded - certainly not peaceful, but the food was average to good.

Situated in the english market, this is a brilliant little cafe. It was buzzing with people when we arrived, so you knew it was popular. Had a 10 minute wait, and it was well worth it. I had the spiced beef sandwich on the most delicious piece of multigrain bread. The apple sponge cake was beautiful too, so soft. Would... More

This restaurant is above the English Market in Cork, and diners can sit and watch the market below. There are several Trip Advisor reviews which criticise the attitude of the staff here. We found none of that. The staff are pleasant, helpful and friendly. We arrived at about midday, and wanted to eat at 1:00, so we called in and... More

Located on the upper floor of the market, we stopped for a late lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the variety of delectable local food items on the menu. We ordered and paid for our food at the counter, then were seated by an attendant who brought our food when it was ready. Each of our food choices were truly... More

Great lunch, in the cafe. Courgette and ricotta tart, served with salad or vegetables was great and one had fish and potato gratin. All very good, great wine as well! Service was ok.

Positioned over The English Market one would expect everything to be fresh and of course it is. We had fish which was delicious and served by very friendly and attentive staff. The restaurant has a reserved area and would recommend booking as it can be very busy. There was a good menu and wine list to suit every taste. Will... More

A lovely restaurant/cafe on the upper floor in Cork's English Market. The food is fresh, home made and excellent. Self-service or sit down, I prefer the self-service. Some of the seats overlook the market below and the fountain. Nice to have a coffee and watch the world pass by.
