We had a shared portion of olives, humous and flatbread crackers with dips, lovely and great value between 3 for around 6€. For mains we had 3 fillet steaks @17€... More

Bustling popular restaurant in centre of Cork, definitely need to book. Restaurant is on first floor overlooking river and decor is interesting. Nice outside terrace. Food is delicious and service very good and friendly. Dont forget to try the whisky and chocolate truffle tasting board!

This restaurant is a nice place to go for lunch. I understand that it can very crowded in the evenings, so lunchtime may be a good bet. Located right downtown, just off the Grand Parade, it overlooks the river. You should go upstairs and try for a table by the window so you can enjoy the views. The restaurant specializes... More

Lovely pub and restaurant just off Grand Parade overlooking the River Lee. Lovely outdoor seating area and a nice vibe inside too. Live music when we were there and a good crowd. Food is excellent. A good option in Cork City.

This is a great place to eat, it gets top marks on all aspects. The atmosphere is lively - electric even ;-) The food is excellent the service efficient and friendly. Early bird is a great deal, if short on funds, don't feel left out.

But after we ordered steaks my wife was served a steak with a hair underneath it. This as far as we were concerned was extremely exceptional and after bringing this to... More

Very enjoyable work night out. The starter of Coconut Prawns was fantastic, steaks cooked perfect to individuals taste from blue to well done...but the cheese board is the most generous and tasty I've ever had in a restaurant, it was so good, three of the party were able to share. The trio of whiskey as a dessert works. Staff service... More
