Where do I start??! Firstly the service was terrible, Fawlty towers-esque. There was one waitress working on the night and she struggled to cope with our table of two and an other couple who happened to be there at the same time. Her English was non existent and she had no knowledge of the menu, any requests out of the ordinary weren't met at all. For example, we both had fish dishes which came with a lemon butter sauce, we asked that this be on the side and not on the fish. Both meals came out drowning in sauce, with a side ramekin of butter...
The meal itself was very very poor, I'd expect better from a greasy spoon. It took almost 45 minutes to deliver the order, which for a kitchen that probably had a maximum of 4 orders on the go is atrocious. Being suckers for punishment we decided we'd have desert, none of what we wanted that was listed on the menu was available so we trumped for a slice of black forest gateau which was clearly heated up in the microwave from frozen, not even defrosted. The outside was over cooked and tough while the inside was still thawing.
The other couple who had the misfortune of dining at the same time as us had the pleasure of waiting over 20 minutes to pay while 'Manuela' retired to the back kitchen with their credit card!!
Cork is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to good restaurants so that's why I'm baffled that this place has stayed open for so long. My advice, avoid this place like the plague and go elsewhere, if all the elsewheres are full, order a take away.
