I had the lamb which was cooked perfectly and was excellent. We also had a couple of breakfasts there and they were terrific.

We were invited out to Saturday night dinner here by a family member as a special treat and we were looking forward to a super meal. The hotel is beautiful, which added to our expectations, however we were disappointed with the food. We won't be rushing back.

From the decor to the service I couldn't fault a thing. The food was out of this world. I had a great waiter who was a little clumsy but in a very good way. The amuse Bouche was amazing along the with the sorbet. There wasn't one part of the meal that I did not like. The atmosphere was second... More

Orchids is truly a fine dining experience. The amuse bouche of scallops, the champagne sorbet, starters, main courses, desserts and fine wines were all truly special. Private dining is available and quite an experience.

Recently had lunch in Orchids on what was a very special family occasion. We had in fact made the reservation c6 months ago as we regularly eat in both Orchids and Perrotts Bistro both of which we consider a treat irrespective of how many times we dine there. Our recent visit however was really disappointing on several fronts, namely: *... More

"Dinner at Orchids" not only met high expectations but joyfully exceeded them. The service was attentive warm and welcoming. A "Dirty Gin Martini" at the bar was a great choice. Dinner began with the Oyster " Amuse Bouche ". This was a very appreciated nice beginning. The beautifully cooked scallops appetiser was a picture on a plate, perfectly presented. Loved... More

What a dining experience! Amazing food presented so beautifully and tasting incredibly. Atmosphere was again fantastic with a live pianist playing the classics. Staff were lovely and helpful. Of course the meal was not cheap but it's the perfect spot to celebrate a special occasion in cork.

I don't use 5 star hotels often, mainly because I've been disappointed with my experience in the past. My Fiancee and I went to Hayfield Manor Hotel for an Easter Sunday Dinner treat and it was just that. The Hotel is very welcoming, the staff were all friendly and polite. We received a genuine welcome to the Orchid restaurant and... More
