My friend and I spent a small fortune at this restaurant. The food was way overpriced and the service was eccentric, to say the least. We were told that our starter was unavailable some twenty minutes after placing our order. My friend did not enjoy her food at all. While I enjoyed mine it certainly did not warrant the price...

In the heart of Cobh this is just a very average restaurant. The bat is the smallest I have ever seen with without doubt the worst pint I had in years . I declined a second and went on water for the remainder of the meal. The upstairs restaurant lacks any atmosphere at all . The food is only average... More

I quite enjoyed my seafood salad but my wife thought her pasta was not good. Our vegetarian friends had no more than the usual trouble finding something good.

Booked Trade winds for a meal last week for a very large group. Wasn't sure how it would work out given that there was already a group booking for the same night but I have to say, I couldn't find fault. The food was excellent and catered for several various dietary requirements in the group, the service was fast and... More

Because the service is slow. They need more help. The food on the other hand was good to excellent. The beef medallions were very well prepared. The stuffed filet also was excellent. My cheese covered salmon was perhaps not a great choice, but was at least unique. The presentation was nice for all meals.

Impressive bar food menu but great restaurant upstairs with lovely views of the town and sea. Outstanding value for money, not holding back on portions. Seafood tasted as if chef had line cast from kitchen.

The restaurant was busy downstairs and we were told that they were full. (But they weren't). Once we got seated and the waiter was able to slowdown, this was really good. Worth the wait. I would come back. They do need more help. 👍🏽

This is an old style, old fashioned restaurant offering four course meals. It reminds me of dining 20 years ago, good wholesome food, simple, not extraordinary but ok.

I have eaten here before and it was good. It was fairly busy when we visited but that doesn't excuse poor service, painfully slow which was disappointing. Obviously needs more staff. The food was good when we got it but the waiting spoiled the meal.

Thank Dale R
