“Tasty and classy tapas in Cork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

We loved this classic small tapas bar on Bridge Street. Not like Spain, but just as tasty, and with a very chic atmosphere, casual, yet classy. The staff were terrrific, the wine was great, and the tapas were just outstanding (especially liked the Arbutus goat cheese with fig, and the halloumi salad, but the crab croquets and patatas bravas were authentic with a nice twist). Wish we had this at home!

“Lovely place but is poor quality and lacks imagination.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Service very average and the loos were very dirty including hand wash area. Portions very small for high price tag.

“Wonderful atmosphere, great for a date :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic evening in Boqueria. This was not my first visit but my partner had never been before and was really impressed with not only the food (which was AMAZING) but also the atmosphere and attentive service. Our waitress whose name I sadly didn't catch was very friendly and we were regularly asked if we were ok and if the food was good. We were seated next to a larger group who had some rather petty gripe about something related to oysters but we could not have enjoyed our choices more. The only (minor) gripe that I may have had was that our food was a long time arriving but we did order several items from the menu so it was understandable.
Really lovely evening

“A nice and casual place for tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

We went there based on a review from the NYT. Cork is a fairly compact town and it was an easy walk from Hayfield Manor. The staff were friendly and efficient. Good service. We sampled a variety of tapas-all were terrific but the salmon stood out as the best. Intimate casual atmosphere.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

Very tasty tapas (though more small plates than tapas) and extremely tasty drinks.

It's more of a bar then a restaurant but its perfectly sized portions to complement a bottle of wine or some cocktails! The cocktails are not cheap but are delicious.

Service was very good, though we did end up ordering more than our table could handle!!
