An excellent location for dinners for formal occasions to celebrations. One of the finest in Cork. Excellent food, staff and location. Going to casinova gelato after this is a good bet:)

The food was top class. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Also was one of the best coffees I have had during our trip around Ireland.

Always very good! We come here regularly as I am delighted with the Coeliac Friendly menu. It is so great to get nice gluten free food. Staff are always very friendly and efficient.

We went here with our 6 year old son during our recent trip to Cork. Everything was lovely from start to finish. I had a delicious filet and my husband had the ham hock - both delicious. I really appreciated they had a children's menu (although I wouldn't call it a "family" place). Great experience.

The manager made s plan for us to get a table for four. The restaurant came highly recommended on TA. The waiter was swamped but quickly sorted us. The menu had something for everyone. Good wine list and great atmosphere. They seemed to streamline all departments to work together like clockwork. Lovely.

Overall we had a good experience. The wait was very long but they had texting/call options available to let us know when the table was ready. We couldn't order their brewery beer from the restaurant at the time for some reason which was too bad. The food was good and reasonably priced, but I wouldn't say it made my top... More

Enjoyed a meal for two here in August 2016. Food was nice and it was good value. Only down side was we were rushed a lot to get our orders in which took away from the experience. Will revisit.
