A most enjoyable meal last night. Staff were friendly and attentive. Prawn and chicken salad starters for our group of four followed by two pheasants, one hake and one steak. Definitely one of our favourites in Cork - Kob + 3

Lunch the other day; soup was very salty and "slice" of soda bread crumbled it was cut so thinly. A really lovely cafe for a coffee and scone, the baking here is always fresh and very nice. Staff are friendly.
