A group of us had a birthday dinner. Staff were attentive and polite and very efficient. Food was amazing and we weren't left waiting between courses. It was really good value too. A good selection of wine but the house wine was really nice!

Top quality service, great food. The Seaford Crowder was lovely and I would recommend the caramel icecream for dessert.

We ate there twice ordering and enjoying a great hamburger the first time and some really great french onion soup the next time. We will absolutely encourage everyone who goes to Cork to try this great place.
