Beautiful restaurant. They do great rates for student lunches for the secondary school up the road. I enjoyed a beautiful bowl of vegetable soup, it is my favourite that I have tried yet. This was full of flavour and served with bread rolls which were soft and fresh. Everything was homemade. For a main course I ordered beer battered cod, which went down a treat with the fabulous vegetables and mashed potatoes! As I am not a fish lover I was amazed that this took my fancy but I had to order it when I caught a glimpse and the fabulous scent. I have been here many times and as it is one of my favourite desserts on the menu I ordered warm chocolate fudge cake from the fabulously tempting glass fridge in the lounge. In here they display all of the mouthwatering and delicious desserts on the menu. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and found the atmosphere totally relaxing, I enjoyed how helpful and kind the staff were and would certainly be pleased to return!

Julie's Diner is a must when visiting Bantry, my boyfriend and I regularly call in here, this is by far the best fast food available for miles. We have both taken a liking to their chargrilled chicken sub. It is perfectly executed with a creamy sauce and fabulous vegetables! I have also recently tried the sweet chilli chicken sub and have fallen in love with it, it is amazing and must be tried if you visit here. The chips here are perfect, not too soggy, not too potatoey, simply perfect. Julie's diner gets a big thumbs up from me. The price is quite good on a lot of foods but subs are 5 euro each. Also, Julie's diner cater for birthday parties and I must say they do an amazing job!!

The Orgialla Restaurant @ Oriel House
Oriel House Hotel, Ballincollig, Cork

Last month my year went to the oriel house for the debs and it was fantastic! As many restaurants either do not hold debs balls or don't care what the food served is like we were pleasently surprised. The price was fantastic as the tickets were only 40 euro each, compared to last years 60 euro. As a starter we were served everyones favourite, vegetable soup, this was fantastic, there was a burst of flavour from it. Our main course was either 8oz beef burgers or chicken and ham with a mushroom sauce, I ordered the chicken and was totally satisfied with my choice, I finished every last bite! Our dessert however was profiteroles and didn't quite live up to my expectations, the chocolate sauce was too strong and there was not enough cream. I must also say the security was quite tight and being only 2 months overage they didn't believe my ID and I had quite a bit of trouble, also, because of new laws, underage were kicked out at 12 but were thrown outside to wait instead of given a room, I thought this quite unfair.

The Brick Oven
Wolfe Tone Square, Bantry, Cork

We went here to eat on a Sunday as a family, reccommended by my sister. For starters we each had vegetable soup which was tasty but quite watery. I enjoted the bread which accompanied it. I ordered chicken with bacon bits in a mushroom sauce. The chicken was beautiful and the sauce was of perfect condidtency, I couldn't really taste the bacon bits. The dinner was served with potatoes and vegetables, the potatoes were lumpy and sort of spicy, because of this I didnt eat them, the vegetables however were beautiful except the cauliflour which had a horrible white sauce, it was bitty. The variety of desserts was not great and most were heavy, not what you want from a dessert, however I ordedred a creme brulee which was perfect, I loved it to bits and would go back to the restaurant just for it. The place was quite cramped and as they were busy the staff were slow to serve but quite friendly anyway.

Leap Inn Restaurant
Leap Skibbereen, Skibbereen, Cork

The atmoshphere was homely. This bar/restaurant/hotel is situated in a perfect area for tourists as it is surrounded closely by lots of water and beaches, there are good facilities closeby including a shop, petrol station, playground etc. The food was excellent! It is traditional Irish food and there is also a bar menu available which offers a wide variety of foods from toasted sandwiches to chicken goujons to steak and a childrens menu. I enjoyed a starter of homemade vegetable soup which was beautiful! I thouroughly enjoyed this as it was fresh and entirely homemade. For main course I had a beautiful piece of roast beef with homemade gravy which was rich and tasty, the beef was succulent and tender. This was accompanied by vegetables and potatoes which were perfectly cooked and were juicy and tasteful. The potatoes were perfectly floury and fluffy. As a dessert I enjoyed homemade black forrest gateaux, this was so fulfilling as the cake base was spongy and moist and the alcohol did not overpower the fruitiness but instead, enhanced its flavour! The service was good, the waitresses were very helpful and friendly. I found the value fantastic! This added to about €22 which I found a fantastic price, especially as the meal was so perfect! The only thing I found was a problem, was the heat as I am used to a more cool temperature.
