We enjoyed a nice lunch, well presented. The fish was batter fried but light and the Irish stew satisfying. Service was prompt and inviting.

We had a lovely lunch at Gilbert's when our cruise ship stopped in Cobh. Excellent fish chowder to start. My beef and Guinness stew was just how you'd expect one to taste in Ireland. Lovely service from Gemma. Recommended.
