Never been before. Asked at the bar for navigation...no problem / everything explained. We sat outside had a beer and a wine. Shortly afterwards our snacks ... calamari and a... read more

We recently visited for Saturday lunch. The best fresh seafood we have had in a long time. The prawns and chorizo are sublime. A total must try! The salt and pepper squid was great too, as was the crab and smashed Avocado served on ciabatta. Great friendly service and reasonably priced. We can't wait to return and sample more in... More

Not the best set up for young children as about half of the tables are to high to use a high chair at but not really what this place is about! Breakfast was really good (eggs benedict) and the atmosphere was really upbeat with some great music playing in the background. Three pokestops available from inside the bar and two... More

We've just been in Cork for my hen weekend and visited this bar/restaurant twice. Their cocktails are fab, their food delicious and most of all the staff are so friendly and accommodating! I definitely recommend going here if you are in Cork or you'll miss a good day/night out.

Great atmosphere - Budweiser great and Alan looked after us so well when we had a big issue about our tickets for Gavin James. Alan was so nice & so helpful to us. Great venue for a beer and something to eat - highly recommended

We were here as a group and had pre-ordered nibbles for the table. The food that was brought out was divine. So delicious and wholesome. I would definitely return for food. However the service was average at best. It took an age to be serviced at the bar and then when we were going to order cocktails we were told... More

Have eaten here many times and is one of my " go to" restaurants in Cork. Brilliant innovative owners who employ brilliant attentive staff. Food is always top class and there's always a great "buzz" in the restaurant and bar!
