5 of us dined here on a Mon night & the whole experience was just fantastic - maybe a lot to do with the lovely girl that served us. She was the nicest waitress I had ever come across & really helpful. Their early bird is only €17 and great selection. We all had something different & all the plates were cleared. Will definately be back! Thanks for great value and great service.

The Roundabout Inn
On The Roundabout, Mallow, Cork

Had Sat lunch here with my grandson. He had sausages/chips/dilute drink for €4 which sounds good value but the sausages were not great and the amount of dilute drink used was so minimal that I thought he got water. I asked for lamb which was on the menu but waitress informed me that it was not on menu that day & hadn't been for about 6months! One would have thought they might delete that from menu?? I opted for the chicken dish of the day which was just awful - dry chicken breast that felt it had been cooked the day before and reheated with fresh breadcrumbs and sitting on nice mash that was topped with awful stuffing, so couldn't really get at the mash. Both veg from packets and overcooked. Won't be back in a hurry.

The Mill Restaurant Blarney
Blarney Woollen Mills Hotel, Blarney, Cork

3of us dined here on a Mon - not many in restaurant but service was poor. We had to get our own menus & think our order was a little forgotten about as we were left waiting a long time. When it came it was good - lovely fish but tartar sauce on side of plate with peas, despite the fact that there are lovely little dishes for sale in one side of restaurant! Bit disappointed in that. Burger large & meaty but chips disappointing. A bit underwhelmed but surroundings lovely.

Springfort Hall Hotel
Mallow, Mallow, Cork

3 of us dined here on a Wed. Nice surroundings & food pretty good - chicken dish on the night was good but peppered burger not very exciting (not a normal burger and no bun etc). Good value on a wed for their offer.

The Ambassador Restaurant
3 Cook Street, Cork City, Cork

5 of us dined here on a Mon night. Nice atmosphere. We asked what was included in the set menu before ordering but someone different came to take our order. We didn't realise that we had to state we were opting for the set menu, as we had already asked about it. When the bill came everything was charged seperately-we queried this & they were not very happy to adjust the prices - the difference was €40. Its a bit sneaky to have the details of the set menu on the back of the menu. The food was ok but the portion sizes were not very big & apparently they are even smaller if you state you want the set menu. Won't be in a hurry back.

The Hibernian Hotel
Main Street, Mallow, Cork

Went to self-service cafe here on Sat last for something light. Just got a cold plate with egg + 3 salads that I picked out myself (NO meat) and was charged 6.75Euro. It was a disgrace to charge so much. Won't be back in a hurry. Very disappointed.

The Briar Rose Bistro
Douglas Road, Douglas, Cork

Dined here with 5 others & some aspects of the food were ok while others were just unedible - like the pinapple & chilli salsa & the pepper sauce. Both were just so hot that it was impossible to contemplate having them. The atmosphere was ok but the food was just ok. Very disappointed over all.

Waterloo Inn
Waterloo Blarney, Blarney, Cork

This is definately a very good value restaurant in a lovely setting. From the conservatory you can see the river running down at the back, which gives it a lovely atmosphere. The steak was excellent & the staff very helpful & very knowledgeable on the wine. Will definatley be back.

Bella Cafe - Mallow
111 Main Street, Mallow, Cork

Had lunch with 2 friends here on Sat. Beautiful homemade veg. soup which was excellent and piping hot. We also had a lasagne which came with chips and a lovely side salad and the last order was a very fresh & homemade wrap with chicken and peppers etc. It was all very nice & tasty, served by friendly staff and very fast service. Will definately be back.

Lemongrass Bistro
Main Street, Ballincollig, Cork

Dined with 2 friends in this lovely restaurant. Early bird menu is excellent value for money. We all had different dishes which were all lovely except maybe the black bean chicken dish was a bit salty. The desserts were lovely too except the apple tart a bit sweet. Overall will be back - lovely staff and atmosphere.

Laurels Restaurant @ Curraheen Park Greyhound Stadium
Curraheen Park, Greyhound Stadium, Bishopstown, Cork

Had a very nice meal here on Fri 4th Dec but was very disappointed to see the very same menu as the previous night (which only cost 45 Euro as opposed to 60 on the Fri night). Food good but too much fish on menu. Not great value for 60, in the current climate and the wines were pretty expensive too.

Blairs Inn
Cloghroe, Blarney, Cork

Dined with 4 friends on a Mon night. Lovely place but very quiet. Roaring fire which made for a lovely atmosphere. The food was excellent, though a bit pricey. No sign of any special menu etc which most restaurants are doing now. The only down-side was the ladies toilet - the smell was that of a public toilet - it was a pity as it was a lovely evening apart from that.

The Barn Restaurant
Glanmire Cork, Glanmire, Cork

Had a lovely visit here with a friend. We both ordered the bar menu, 25Euro for 3 courses. Very good value for the wonderful food. The nice bit was we dined in the restaurant which has a wonderful atmosphere. It was a really nice dining experience. The staff were second to none & I'm now thinking of booking for a birthday celebration. Will definately be back.

Kudos Restaurant (IFSC)
Clarion Hotel Dublin, IFSC, City Centre North, Dublin

Dined with a friend on Fri nite. Both had steak which was lovely but only had 9 chips each on the plate and the stuffed tomatoe had about a small spoon of stuffing. Desserts were only ok and left the restaurant not feeling at all full. Not good value for money at all.

The Pembroke @ The Imperial Hotel
South Mall, Cork City, Cork

Dined with a party of 7 on a Fri night & it had a lovely buzz about the place. The staff were very friendly & helpful. All 7 were very pleased with their food and the avocado starter was to die for! Will definately be back.

The Abbey Tavern
54 Gilabbey Street, Cork City, Cork

This quaint little pub in the city feels like it should be out in the country. Fantastic atmosphere with lovely open fire. Lasagne or quiche are great + lovely toasted sandwiches. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Good value for money.

Aroma Chinese Restaurant
5/6 Emmet Place, Cork City, Cork

Great location especially for Opera House & great value early menu - 14.50 for 3 courses, which were all excellent. Staff lovely & helpful but atmosphere was a little chilly on the night, maybe to do with the awful damp weather outside. Will def be back.

Indigo Brasserie - Closed
16 West Washington Street, (opposite the Square deal), Cork City, Cork

Dined her with 4 friends & won't be in a hurry back. Food only ok and expensive for size of portions. Staff were nice, but the restaurant itself could have done with a good clean. Couldn't really recommend it.

Christys Grill Bar
Blarney Woollen Mills Hotel. Blarney, Blarney, Cork

Had a great meal here on Thurs 9th Sept. The price was 55Euro for 2 with a bottle of wine. It was great value. The menu is varied and the wine selection was also very good. The food was excellent and the staff very polite and helpful. Will definately be back.

The Wild Goose
Upper Quartertown, Mallow, Cork

Has gone down a lot. Used to go there a lot on Sat's but last week it was poor enough. Prices are high for the portion sizes and some staff are a bit disinerested. Won't be in a hurry back.

The Muskerry Arms (Restaurant)
Blarney, Blarney, Cork

Lovely varied menu & very reasonable. We just had a quick bite - chowder which was great & the locally sourced herb sausages. Both nicely presented and very good value for money. Will definately be back.

The Gallery Bar & Restaurant
St Joseph's Road Mallow, Mallow, Cork

Had very disappointing meal here. Everything was too salty especially the chicken stir-fry. It didn't resemble a stir-fry at all, more a stew like dish and it was poisoned with salt. The staff and surroundings were nice but wouldn't go back again for the food. Was in a group of six and nobody was really happy with what they got.

White Horse Inn
Ballincollig, Ballincollig, Cork

Muskerry Arms
Blarney, Blarney, Cork

Have had many happy evenings in the Muskerry where the service is always excellent and with a smile and the food excellent. What I really like about the restaurant is that the staff are there for a long time and really know the menu and couldn't be more helpful. White choc. cheesecake is to die for!!
