Really nice evening meal here on 8th of December. Waitress (blonde bob) was very attentive and friendly, she also told us she new to the job which came as a surprise! Food was a little bit slow coming out but well worth the wait. Very accommodating menu and large portions, great family spot for a Christmas drink or bite after... More

Went here for lunch yesterday after looking at a few places to suit everyone in the group and we certainly made a good choice. We had the lasagnes, chicken curry and chilli con carne and the food was plentiful and very very tasty. Very well priced for city centre cork. Will be back again when I'm in Cork in two... More

Very nice food, quick service and very friendly waiting staff. All the food we ordered was well received and clear plates all round. Desserts were awesome. Decor is on point, was very quiet when we went but it was a Wednesday afternoon. I am imagine this would be a lively place during the weekend.

My daughter & I popped in here for lunch while on a tour with a stop-off in Cork. Friendly server & quick service. They made a Caesar salad as I ordered it and my daughter had a delicious bowl of Irish Stew.
