“Great venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

We were lucky to choose L'Atitude 51 for a wedding party for 20 guests. The upstairs room was perfect as it was private and has its own bar as well. The owners were so helpful when we first booked and on the day nothing was a problem.The canapes were great as a pre-dinner feast and of course everyone was able to find a preferred wine from the very extensive list.Thank you to all for making a special day ,a truly memorable one!

“My Wedding Reception”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

I was in L Atitude 51 last monday for my wedding reception drinks. We had the private room upstairs for the 20 of us. We had wine and canapes and it was amazing!! The staff were incredibly accommodating and friendly. The food was delicious and great value! I would highly recommend this place for a private party or even just casual drinks in the bar downstairs.Thank you to all the staff for making my day perfect.

“Inedible...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

Bavette steak with fries & blue cheese or peppercorn sauce... Sounded promising & the waitress explained it was flank of beef & I could have butter instead of sauce as I am coeliac. Unfortunately not only was it almost too tough for a steak knife, it was overbooked & Inedible. Served with soggy chips and a few leaves of lettuce. Olives & goats cheese to start were ok. I'd suggest going here for tapas, starters or wine. Food was crap!

“Best wine experience in cork!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012 via mobile

What a find, a decent wine bar at last, where the people know their stuff and are not pretentious about it. We particularly liked the idea of the tasting glasses size at 3 or 4 euro while you figure out what you really like. The atmos was buzzy when we turned up one mid week night, and the grub was cold cuts and cheese which we were in the mood for. Great night and we will return.

“The quality, value, atmosphere, location and friendly staff make L'Atitude 51 a gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2012

One of the newer pub / restaurants is L'Atitude 51 on Union Quay in Cork, just across from Cork City Hall. Named for Cork's 51 degrees north latitude, this place has real ATTITUDE too! First, the menu is in the style of a tapas bar, but it is more Italian than Spanish in its servings. The wine list is extensive, and wine is served in several different precise measures - an important consideration if you are driving.
We were shown to seats in the first floor, which was once a famous gig venue when the premises was known as The Lobby Bar. The room has large windows on two walls, giving a wonderful view of the river, and as it is a corner building, admits loads of natural light. The walls are adorned with paintings which are all for sale, but seem to be chosen to suit the room at the same time. One wall has a 10 foot high hand written wine menu which not only breaks down the wine choice by region and taste, but also by price in each of the measures. In today's cash-conscious times, this is a considerate gesture by the owners.
Ordering our meal was such a lovely experience. Even though the place was buzzing, our waitress was pleasant and patient as we dithered over our order.
We thought at first that the food was a little pricey, but when we considered that rubbish food served by uncaring staff in boring places costs nearly as much, we realised that we got great value with our beautifully prepared food, served in a wonderful atmospheric setting by a lovely friendly waitress. Even the gentle volume and choice of background music was a pleasure to the senses.
This place gets five stars from us. Definitely a place to bring somebody you want to impress and entertain. More of this for Cork please!
