Description: Greenes Restaurant, Awarded Best Chef in Cork 2015, is located in a beautiful courtyard within 5 minutes' walk of Patrick Street, Cork. Local ingredients, the finest seafood and meat available in Cork, we only offer what's in season, often organic but always artisan prepared. Greenes is without a doubt a must dine venue. The scenery alone is worth a visit, with its own floodlit waterfall looking onto a heated courtyard, Greenes city centre location is ideal for all those travelling in the South of Ireland. Keenly priced menu's, an extensive wine list, cocktail's and a full bar licence with Excellent Food ensures that Greenes remains one of the Best restaurants in Cork City.

“Would not eat here again”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

No idea why this was given excellent reviews. The resturant was more cafe/hostel style then resturant. The food was way below average, the service was not that not good. I will not be eating here again.

“Nice Place worth a visit..”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

We arrived late on a Friday and got a table after 15mins wait. Were sited by window with view of nice garden pond and waterfall which was lighted up and nice and romantic. The service was quite good and waitors quite jovial. Food not excellent but quite good and above only average.

“Great food and service despite it been Mothers Day”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

There are two days in the year I recommend people to eat at home and they are Valentines and Mothers day , Restaurants are always packed and many take short cuts I ended up going to Greens as having worked the weekend I decided to try for a late booking in the hope all the mothers and families were now home in bed
Unfortunately all the mothers were not home in bed as the restaurant was still packed when we arrived, however that did not matter to the quality of food or service . I started with a half dozen Oysters and partner had the tempura of goats cheese .
He raved and raved about the Goats cheese and all that came with it and I adored my Oysters.
The house white which I had seen recommended here was delightful
Partner had the Surf & Turf for mains and I had the seared tuna again both were excellent .
As I am now a weight watchers addict we skipped on desserts which looked fab on other tables
The service was exceptionally good
I have not eaten here for years for some strange reason but will definitely go back
The costs were 10 Euros for starters and 23 for main courses they do a three course special meal for 25 Euro which also looked good
