Exceptional value for Sunday lunch. Portion size and choice are both huge. Definitely book if going as it's very busy yet service was quick and all the staff are very friendly.

Called in for lunch, open smoked salmon sandwich. Salmon was fine, brown bread very dry, difficulty with the salads, the coleslaw was awful and scoop of terrible mashed potato salad. Not great. The setting is the bar and is grand the staff are friendly and helpful. Won't be returning.

myself and my girlfriend went there on a friday evening and sat in the bar for an early bird.it was our first time there as my girlfriend recieved a voucher as a gift. it was our first visit.... it will not be our last. soup and mushrooms for starters and we both went for the chicken gratin for mains. creme brule and apple pie for dessert. the food was superb !! the service was excellent. a very friendly waitress who i dont mind identifying as the girl from kerry, she could not have been any more helpful. drinks were brought to the table and plates were cleared by a tall barman who was very kind in offering us more drink or teas and coffee's... i have eaten in alot of different restaurants in cork but the service here is second to none. very very impressed !!

Food was gorgeous, and nice portion sizes. Big menu so something for everyone. Staff were helpful and not in your face and it was surprisingly reasonable to 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 desserts, tea and a glass of wine! Would definately recommend it.

Went here last satirday night with my husband and 10 year old son. Both adults had the steaks from the steak platter deal and at 24.95 was good value considering you got a choice of either a free starter or free dessert.The food was top notch with the lovely home made fries quite a bonus.My son had lovely home made chicken goujons which were lovely. The staff were friendly abd efficient and even though we were there quite early around 6.30 there was a lovely ambience to the place. We will certainly return as it was a delightful experience overall.

Il Primo loses only a half point but that was only because we ate very early at 6.30 and it was very quiet. However it really picked up between 7 and 7.30. A group of 4 of us ate from the early bird menu and with a couple of drinks, our 3 course meal plus tea or coffee came to a total of €107.00 This was excellent value because for an early bird menu it had a big and varied choice. 3 of our party had Cod or Plaice and 1 had the Penne Chicken Pasta. For starters we had Garlic Mushrooms, Wings and 2 Goats cheese tartlets. The food quality was fantastic and I cannot recommend the Goats cheese enough. Both Fish dishes were fantastic and the staff were happy to swap the pasta dish on the early bird menu for another choice on the main menu. Service was prompt and very friendly. This is my first review and I was prompted to sign up to this site and review purely by the standard and value of the meal we recieved. As consumers, we have no problem complaining about poor standards but it's only fair if you give credit where it is due. We will be back.

I come here regularly for lunch in the bar. Their roast beef dinner is to die for at a reasonable price. The platter of salmon and prawn is highly recommended by me, its something different rather than having the meat and two veg. HUGE portions and great service.

Got a present of a voucher for this restaurant. Myself and my husband went there. Definately one of my favourites. Ordered steak with french fries and salad. It was one of the nicest ever. Great big room and great atmosphere. Service was excellent. Well worth a visit.

The upstairs restaurant is fantastic. Have been loads of times and definately one of my favourites. The food is always delicious, and its a great place to go if you like fish. Service is always excellent - staff have always been very attentive. It is a little bit dearer that other restaurants but you get what you pay for. If i had one complaint it would be that everytime i go, i eat so much i never have room to go downstairs to the bar for an after dinner drink! Well worth checking out

Myself and my husband really enjoyed our recent meal here. We felt the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and the service was excellent. It was great value with two starters, two mains, two desserts, one coffee and a bottle of wine costing €76. We had the combo starter which was delicious and I loved getting a taster of several starters. I had the monkfish and prawn bake for mains which was delicious, but very filling as it had a lot of cheese. My husband had a pasta dish which was also nice, but could have done with more garlic (it was on the menu as being garlic and mushroom). The one thing they could improve on is dessert. My sticky toffee pudding was a bit dry and my husband didn't particularly enjoy the apple pie. But overall, we had a lovely meal and thought it excellent value for money.

Everytime I have been here, I haven´t been disappointed. This time it was as good.The service was a bit slow but the food was very nice. The portions were big and tasty. The cod and plaice were lovely and the duck and beef stir-frys were also nice. The desserts were lovely even though some of the people I was with said that some of them were a bit too sweet. The baileys and maltesers cheesecake was delicious though.
