So, breakfasts are really good, no complaints there. And service at both breakfast and dinner is excellent. But the food at dinner is really terrible. They make a big deal about "silver service" but what that means is that your food comes to you absolutely "nuked." My husband's "rare" steak was atrociously overcooked. My vegetarian meal was crusty and grey... More

My husband and I came here for dinner. I have a dietary restriction that was identified to the wait staff. Our food was brought out incorrectly. When asked, one waiter informed us that we had the correct food even after our concern was mentioned. Later on after dinner, we went to look at the menu for dessert and come to... More

Last time we ate here I truly knew why people sometimes equate fine dining experiences to theatre and have just enjoyed a repeat performance.Each dish surpassed the one before it and simply brough a smile to one's face.Best dining experience in all of Cork.Can't wait to return.

Stayed the night at Hayfield Manor and enjoyed breakfast Orchids restaurant. They treated us like kings and we had a combination of Irish breakfast with other menu choices. I had eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and the eggs were perfectly poached. I had a wonderful bowl of fresh fruit and a bowl of stewed fruit from the buffet style room.... More

We ate here and silver service which was shared with two other groups. The staff were very attentive. I didn't particularly like the menu in comparison to the more open Perrot's. It was a lot of money in return for an average meal.
