Having heard so much about this restaurant I went out of my way to have a meal here when I was in Cork. I arrived about 5:20 and immediately liked the look of the building, old brickwork which was exposed. When my starter arrived I asked if the rap music which was playing could be lowered down a little. Not an outlandish request, especially as I was the only customer in the place at the time. The food was nice and tasty and when my main course arrived I again asked if the music could be turned down. Both times I made this request the waitress said no problem but nothing happened. About half way into my main course an extremely foul mouthed song came on and seemed to go on forever. Every second word seemed to be F*#k you, F*#k this, mother F*#kers. Now I'm no stranger to hearing such language on a construction sit but not over the speakers in a restaurant. By this stage I'd had enough of it, so I put on my coat and paid my bill and asked to see the manager. He was very apologetic but really didn't seem to be able to deal with the situation. He never really commented when I told him that it was the first time that I ever left half my meal uneaten perhaps he needs further or some training in dealing with customer complaints. Would I come here again ? NO. Would I recommend it to a friend ? NO.
