Called with a friend who wanted a desert and a coffee. I had a drink. The service was fine. My friend really enjoyed his desert. I found the atmosphere a tad quiet as the place was empty however on passing at a later date I noted it to be packed and buzzing. Wouldn't mind trying it for dinner at a later date.

Called in with for bite with husband, he loves the pizza. However we always get the same, and t his is the issue with this place ,its always the same... the specials are nothing special. The service and food has gone down greatly since it opened and this was reflected in the relative lack of buzz, it was a bank holiday sunday on a jazz weekend for the love of God! the place is accommodating if you have small kids but not thinking of family when seating is suggested.. just not great, actually from a spot that i used to relish for a glass of white and a beautiful nicoise i just don't get it anymore.!pity.

Ate here before going to a show in the Opera House. We were running late and let the staff know and in fairness the food go delivered very quickly. The waitress advised what food would get delivered the fastest and all, she was great. Looking at the menu, I definitely plan to go back as it looked great and wish I'd had more time to try some of the fish dishes.

Service was great to our party of 4, our waitress was very pleasant and attentive to our table. I've never had a bad dining experience at Cafe Bar Deli, the food was of top standard and is very well priced, and the different portion size options cater for all appetites.

I visit here often as a place to have a casual lunch and am never let down.Great location, good service and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Interesting menu and the lunch/dinner portion sizes are a great idea that more restaurants should take to too.Nice interior that is let down by the closeness of the tables and small tears in the upholstery.

Our family ate here last Saturday afternoon. It was very busy and the restaurant appeared to be very understaffed. We had to call the waitress to take our order and again over 20 minutes later to check were our order was. On the positive side, the food was good, reasonable, and well presented and the kids meals were particularly good value, with kids pizza's ranging between €5 and €5.5 and kids ice creams at €1.50. I ate penne with butternut squash sauce and chorizo - portions are big so small size at €13 was enough. It was delicious My husband ate pizza at €15, which he pronounced 'ok'! A few more staff on the run up to Christmas would make a great improvement.

Up until a year and a half ago, I was a regular visitor to Café Bar Deli. I since moved from Cork and my first visit back to the restaurant was two weekends ago and, oh my, what a change has occurred! We were seated on the banquet downstairs and I noticed it was torn in several places. The brown paper covering the table is terrible looking – surely there are other alternatives to it? The restaurant lacked atmosphere as it wasn’t half full and diners were seated far from each other – perhaps concentrating them to the front of the restaurant would be better? The menu has shrinked a lot since I was last there but they also have a specials board to choose from. I chose the bread and dips to start with and the goat’s cheese pizza to follow. The bread was fresh and the dips were very tasty – clearly made from good ingredients. The pizza was also very tasty and our wine was very enjoyable too. The service wasn’t the best at all because although the waitresses were efficient, they were quite unfriendly. It seems that Café Bar Deli can still make very tasty food at reasonable prices but they seem to be letting themselves go in all other areas, which is a pity. They offer good value for money, which all diners are looking for in these times but the lack of trimmings won’t keep diners coming back.

I was here on saturday few weeks ago for a luch wih my best friend. This is a really good spot for lunches and I have also been to a birthday due here upstairs so can cater for a big group. they serve a good range of pizzas and pastas, salads, so it is very much casual dining here. They are good at what they do but i probably wouldn't come here for a special occasions. I had the cesar salad with bacon and chiken and it was delicious. the waitress was ok but i think she lacked 'warmth' if people know what I mean. Overall I would recommend the place but I would say for lunches rather than formal dinners

Very impressed with the food in Cafe Bar Deli, it's rare I go in there but it's always tasty. Service is good as well and is a favourite of mine in the city.

I went there for my birthday with a large group of family members and we were seated upstairs and were the only people up there which was completely devoid of atmosphere. However the service was very good and it was like we had our own waitresses for the time we were there. The food was very good and looked very appetising too. Only recently I returned with my fiance for lunch and found that the menu had been decreased in size and lunchtime service was chaotic to say the least. Despite all of this it is well worth a visit as the food is quite yummy :)

I was here for a birthday meal with 7 friends. They originally stuck us upstairs where we were the only ones and there was no atmosphere, but happily accomodated us downstairs when we requested a move. Service was very good in general although two people had to change their order as one of the starters was no longer available. The food overall was standard - fresh but sameish - and not the best Italian by any means. But good value for money and nice friendly atmosphere.

have dinner here a few weeks ago,service was nice but not amazing,food was average,carbanara pasta was pretty bland,brownie lacked sweetness which is a shame really,but the most surprising thing was the price at the end,40euro's for a pasta dish,dessert and a few beers with a bread starter with 3 pieces of old bread and loads of breadsticks,word on the street is that everything is homemade,maybe so but a bit of salt and pepper here and there might help!

The place has a nice atmosphere and is well layed out, it would suit a special night out, as well as a casual eat. We thought the food was very tastey. We only got one pizza which we shared and it was very satisfying! (the no.7 veggie pizza). However what is very dissapointing is that the only size pizzas are small or medium - no large, so its not sharing friendly. The food was ready within minutes, which was good. Another complaint is that we were waiting nearly half an hour for somebody to come and collect the bill from us, we eventually got up to give it to the waitress ourselves, this is strange as the place wasnt even really busy. After tasting that pizza though, would be interested on returning to see if the rest of the menu is as nice

A Late afternoon lunch. The service was good as was the surroundings. But the food needs to improve. The mussels starter was the real let down. Both diners ageed the mussels were not very fresh. The spag bol was average. Good Chrismasy feel with the place bustling with Christmas Shoppers
