While staying in the Watersedge we reserved a table in this restaurant for a meal as a treat. My boyfriend & I were given a beautiful table with sea views & candles lit. Very romantic.
The menu has great choices & staff were initially very helpful.
Food is beautiful. From presentation to taste we were not disappointed.
The restaurant however was full that night. After a table of 8 arrived unfortunately we were forgotten about & sat for 30 minutes with empty plates waiting on a waiter/waitress to give us a dessert menu & get drinks. It did annoy us & kinda ruined our experience as the 3 staff just kept walking by the table ignoring us. People who started their meal after us were served & left before we even got a dessert menu.
Overall the food is amazing.. Just their service could improve.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review on Jacobs Ladder at the WatersEdge.

I was delighted to see you enjoyed your meal and that you found the ambience so romantic. I am disappointed to see this did not continue throughout the evening so my sincere apologies for this. I have spoken with our team here regarding your feedback as it is very important to us. Let me assure you that this is most certainly an isolated incident and not the norm, however I am sorry that you were let down on this occasion.

I hope that you will think of us once more if you are in Cobh in the future so we can give you a second, and much better, impression. If I can be of any assistance in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact me on 021-4815566.

We ate twice in the Jacob's Ladder over the weekend and both times were very pleased with our choices. We enjoyed seafood tapas, beer battered fish and chips, seafood linguine and salted beef and cheese open sandwich. Service was excellent, the staff were very pleasant and helpful and the food was delicious and competitively priced. We would recommend our experience of this restaurant. Thank you.

The Restaurant is part of the Waters Edge Hotel and is ideally located near the railway station which houses the Cobh Heritage Centre, alongside the deep water Liner berth and next to the town centre. The service is great, the staff are friendly and the food is excellent. I had Cod for my main course and it tasted fantastic as if it had just jumped from the sea to my plate.
