Isaacs Restaurant
48 MacCurtain Street, Cork City, Cork City, Cork

Dined here with my family recently, service was excellent and attentive. Food was of good quality overall but felt that menu could have been more varied from a previous visit. Seating needs to have an overhaul and venue could do with a lick of paint. Would agree the food overall is good but could be priced better. will try again in a few years

Luigi Malones (Cork)
1-2 Emmet Place, Cork City, Cork

Dined here with the family, starters were good choice with nice nacho option, Mains good but more veg should have been in the fish dish. Steak was well presented along with the BBQ'd chicken. Desserts were tasty but rationed compared to another visit. All in all a nice meal, not the best value in the city but pleasant staff make the atmosphere, Management team on seating could be more pleasant and warm to customers. With regard to hygiene good but toilets could do with checking regularly.

Market Place
New Square, Mitchelstown, Mitchelstown, Cork

Three of us dined here, we had starters spring roll and spicy wings, the rolls took some time to arrive and the wings were very poor. As for the mains the steak was excellent as was the partridge and the chicken made up for the disappointing starters. We had the bread and butter dessert and this was very tasty with lovely coffee. The place was very busy and may have accounted for the staff and chef bring under pressure with the starters. Will try it again and see.

Had a meal in this lovely chinese in fermoy. You arrive up a stairway entrance to be greeted by a lovely entrance to a very open plan dining room. The decor is spotless although now dated. We both commented on how clean this restauraunt was. We had starters and mains. Both Ribs starters and muscles starters were very tasty and excellently cooked, presentation could be better. Mains: Chicken pineapple and beef curry both cooked to perfection. Will return to this chinese as it was excellently run and very reasonable with very pleasant staff.

Navajo Spur Steakhouse - Closed
Unit 24X Crescent Shopping Centre, Dooradoyle, Limerick

Called here enroute home from Galway the shopping centre was very busy. Waited about 15mins to be seated. Kids meals were ok chips not the hottest. The Burger i had was quiet nice. We all availed of the bottomless mineral a good choice. My biggest annoyance was when paying all the staff appeared to be carrying the payments for thier tables and no till in action this lead to a lenghty delay to getting as change was a premium, guys ye need to action on this one. Don't forget "Customer pays the bills"

The Vintage (Cork)
O'Brien Street, Kanturk, Cork

Called in here again today was pleasant on my last visit. Again the staff were v. good, as for the food.... The soup was excellent. We then had four meals - 2 of us had beef option to find that if felt preprepared and then reheated, it would have been lovely fresh, as for reheating boiled potato's ??? felt as if from the microwave very disappointing. One serving of plaice this was good and fresh and one serving of nuggets and chip needless to say this was fine. Also venue was quiet cold, was informed the boiler had been switched off, this was not rectified until we enquired despite quiet a few of us in coats in the dining area.... most likely this was just a one off as it was the 27th Dec but still very poor as the price of food did not reflect what we were offered.
