When visiting Cobh this week we called into the Quays bar and restaurant for a light lunch. The restaurant was not overly busy so we were shocked at how long we had to wait to order...... 40 minutes!! The food finally arrived and it was really nice.

We stumbled upon this spot and was pleasantly rewarded with attentive service. The fish special was perfectly cooked and cajun potatoes delectable!

We ate here and it was amazing. The food was delicious and the staff were lovely to deal with. Beautiful location, right on the water. We had lovely prawns for starters and a beautiful chicken Asian marinated with rice. Lovely cocktails to follow. All round 5 stars. We will be back

Our gracious host at Elmville House B&B recommended The Quays (pronounced Keys) for dinner. Great food, outdoor deck and music. A wonderful destination for dinner, watching the sun go down and listening to music. Restaurant was extremely busy when we went, so service was a little slow, but the food was great!
