Had a cappuccino here this week - well that is what it was called on the menu. However a cappuccino is a shot of espresso topped with frothy milk served in a normal sized coffee cup. This abomination was about half a pint of brown sludgy stuff topped with some milk froth served in what looked like a yellow bucket which was so heavy to lift that one needed the muscles of a boxer to lift it comfortably.

Dropped in for a cappuccino and a hot chocolate as Cucina has always been the best but something has gone wrong here now. Coffee served in a massive 'java' branded cup. Too large and needed a bit of muscle to even lift it. Hot chocolate was tepid and lacked any flavour. Constructive criticism to staff member when we paid was met with zero interest. Lots of competition in Kinsale these days so we won't be back.

We were about to walk out before ordering based on the staffs attitude. One lady behind the bar bickering orders. An innocent young girl taking orders. Half way through our order, the lady behind the bar told her we were not first and moved her to another table. Not good enough. The food in all fairness was delicious but service is half the battle and they lost that one.

Hello Ciaran,
Thank you for your recent review and also for bringing to my attention the behaviour of my staff, the girl that you were that you mentioned that was taking orders was on her first day of waitressing and was trying to learn how to take orders etc. however this is not acceptable behaviour from the other waitress and I wish to apologise on her behalf.
Best regards
Yvonne
