Have eaten here numerous times over the past 18 months and it is without doubt the best restaurants in North Cork. The food is cooked and presented to a standard that can only be described as exemplary. Service is quick and timely, staff are always pleasant and helpful, and the food itself is absolutely delicious. I am normally a creature... More

To all, We as a family eaten here many, many,many times.Keep forgetting to review. If you feel lazy on the Sunday and BOOK in time Bobs is a lovely treat. The food is always of an excellent quality and the tastes are great. Favorite of mine and my sons is chicken and prawn noodles. And the deserts are always good.

I had lunch at Bobs with a friend last week. Thought I would write review as our lunch was so good nicely presented and tasty. If I got same in a top class hotel I would consider myself lucky. So congrats to the chef. This is a very good restaurant

I've eaten at Bobs on many occasions, as part of a large group, with family, or by myself. I've never had a bad experience and enjoy the consistent good quality. The lasange is my favourite, you can tell it's a homemade recipe, along with the chili noodles. I believe most produce is sourced locally, from Kanturk or wider Duhallow. Sometimes... More

Description
Back in October 2014, Patrick and Cornelia Vicaire had an idea for Bobs Bar & Restaurant to be a restaurant in Kanturk, Cork that was more than a place that served great food. Patrick and Cornelia wanted to give locals a place where they could escape from the stresses of everyday life, a place to eat, drink and relax. Bobs Bar & Restaurant is a family run restaurant where people can get fine dining in Kanturk, Cork at reasonable prices. This is somewhere that offers the option of casual or formal dining, a function room for larger parties, and an intimate bar for just a quiet drink. Offering a wide selection of wines, beers and whiskeys, homemade desserts and an extensive and varied menu, it caters for all. With live music on most Saturday evenings, and special menu offers midweek, this is somewhere that ticks all the boxes.
