The staff were very friendly, the food was fantastic, the view from our table was indescribable! If you're hungry and in the area, dont miss it. It wasn't an overpriced 'fine dining' restaurant, but it was one of the best pub meals i've had! If i come to Cobh again, im definitely making more time to sit at the well... More

We popped into here for an early dinner on a Tuesday evening. We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful staff member who showed us the specials and took our drinks order. The food order was taken soon after. I had one of the blackboard specials - the lamb shank. It came with vegies and mashed potato and was... More

It is nice but overcrowded cafe due to lots of tourists. There is a gift shop and small exhibition about Titanic and its passengers. There are Cruise Liners arriving to the Cobh Port so well worth to be seen. In the evening, on the departure there are ladies dressed up as in 1912 and the Orchestra plays the music. For... More

Lovely restaurant in Cobh by the water. The potato/leek soup ,closed salmon and toasted ham and cheese sandwiches were excellent. Not to mention the Murphy's stout! Service was exceptional. We were served by the owner himself. Very relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Typical pub-style menu for the area. Good fish and chips. Pleasant service. One of the better places in Cobh.

I recently came here with my family while on a holiday. the weather was lovely so we sat outside for lunch to enjoy the view of the harbour. We ordered the salmon, the lamb shank and the steak (compliments to the chef). The service was excellent and the waitresses were all lovely. Finished the meal with a delicious Kopparberg!

Having read previous reviews we were looking forward to eating here. Unfortunately it was pouring with rain so no views, but that is not the restaurants fault, poor food is though! I had the seafood pasta - having had a gorgeous seafood chowder in Youghal (in a pub that had very few visitors) I was looking forward to this. With... More
