We were really stuck for places to take us on a Friday night, but managed to squeeze into the Fish Bar within Bar Electric. We ordered a number of smaller dishes along with fries. All the dishes had a great flavour and were very fresh. However, we were glad to have ordered the fries as each dish was relatively light.... More

Arriving in this restaurant by chance, for the last meal of my parents in Ireland, we came out with a big smile. Fresh fish, very nice service, wine from France and plate of cheese to share for dessert. Prices are around 15-20 euros the main course. Recommended!

Had the most amazing meal there this weekend. The menu is quiet small but everything that we had so tasty and extremely fresh. Staff were very helpful when we were ordering and had a great knowledge of the menu. Definitely will be returning

I visited here recently with a close friend and everything was amazing!! From the calamari to the cocktails, it was all delicious! The staff were so lovey, and patient as we switched seats to sit at the window, overlooking the lovely Lee. I had the tandoori spiced haddock which was served with delicious cabbage and a yogurt and tomato salsa,... More

Had the Salmon special with tarragon and maple glaze which was bronzed perfectly and was outstanding! Reasonably priced at 12 Euros and a generous size too. My go to place when visiting to Cork, you won't be disappointed if you like fresh fish. Nice view of the river as a perk.

The food was delicious, fish was lovely and fresh and well cooked, great flavours. Decor was nice and modern, great views of the river. Staff were immaculately dressed and provided a great service. Good... More

Visited on Jazz Weekend and went to Fish Bar as the main restaurant Electric was fully booked. Not a great choice on menu, what we ordered and what we saw going to other tables were quite small portions for the price. Nice atmosphere with lovely views over the river. Very pleasant staff. Everything was nice apart from the food. We... More

Dined as a party of four. The service was a little slow as there was just one waiter working the floor by himself. He was very friendly though. The food was very yummy and good value for the price I had a whole toasted sea bass which was cooked perfectly and served with some delicious summer vegetables, olives & caperberries.... More

I had visited the fish bar last year when electric was booked up. We enjoyed it so much we decided to go back. I like the set up of the place, it's casual, airy and has good views of the city. The only criticism would be the stools, though stylish they are not all that comfortable for dining. The menu... More

This is a lovely option to have a "different" style of dinner in the city. Lovely views of the river, its a bright and uplifting restaurant. Tapas in style but works as options for appetiser/mains. All the options chosen were enjoyed but the prawn and cherizo dish won the prize of the evening. Very nice drinks menu too, a mojito... More
