Really liked this place - food and wine were excellent and good value. Only gripe was that it was super busy and quite loud but service and food did make up for this and I would certainly eat there again.

Ambience is lovely as is the decor...very chilled place. Starters were disappointing, they didnt seem home cooked. I would definitely recommend the steak, the seasoning was fab. Desserts were good. Drinks menu is overly crafty if you get me!!

We were there on a Thursday evening, served by Richard. The food, service and atmosphere were second to none (this is our second time visiting). Special shout out to the barman who made a cocktail that wasn't on the menu also. Looking forward to coming back next time we're in Cork.

Really enjoyed fantastic evening, made extra special by the attention of our waiter, Mark. He went out of his way to assist us and make a birthday celebration memorable, Highly recommend this restaurant, its versatile and delicious menu and its personal service. Can't wait to go back next time in Cork and hope we get to see Mark again.
