I have been there once but never again. For all the praises that I heard this was the most disappointing dinner. I am not picky with my food but this was the place where I could not finish my dishes. I had a beetroot salad and a duck leg. The salad was tasteless and the leg was fat and dry... More

My husband and I went here recently for a special meal. It was very quiet which meant we got great service. I had the prawn starter and it was amazing, huge succulent prawns in batter with a really tasty, unusual sauce. I had the duck for mains, which was lovely, although we definitely needed the extra veg we ordered, at... More

We had a full 3 course meal which was excellent, especially the main courses (beef fillet and pork belly). Nice staff and atmosphere too. The only fault is the very dull lighting which made the room look very drab and made it hard to appreciate the appearance of the food

The place was buzzin when we arrived. I wasn't exactly bowled over by the general decor, but when the general ambiance is positive many peccadilloes can be overlooked. We... More

Always look forward to an evening at this eatery. Hostess always charming and gives great advice on wine selection. Food never fails to deliver on consistent quality beautifully served. Not cheap by any means but worth it for that special occasion

We went here for dinner last night. The menu was very diverse and it was hard to pick what to eat. We started with the chefs choice which was a selection of seafood. Presentation was impeccable and really tasty. For main I got the lamb which was so tender. The staff were really friendly. The only bad point was the... More

A truly wonderful restaurant. Excellent delicious food, with a French flair and of a very high standard. (The Foie Gras is amazing!) Fabulous wines served perfectly, professionally & with flair. Friendly, efficient staff. A gem in Cork city. The perfect treat for any occasion.
