I was here as part of a hen party. There was about 20 of us and we were seated in the main restaurant. The atmosphere is fab with low lighting and fantastic decor with the stoned walls and large centre piece lighting. Its a very romantic restaurant so perfect for a date night but also perfect for any dinner occasion. To start we had a cocktail which was lovely, for starters I had goats cheese with roasted vegetables with honey glazed onions and this was devine. Main course was beef roulade with bacon and mash and this was very tasty and the beef was melt in the mouth tender. For dessert I had apple fritters with ice-cream and this was very nice. Overall we had a great night, with fantastic food, gorgeous atmosphere, efficient and friendly staff - I would highly recommend a trip to Jola's if you're in kinsale!!

To be honest I had heard rave reviews about Electric but to be honest I wasn't too impressed when we got there. the seating in the restaurant upstairs was like a cafe and we were seated at a table that was right by the door to the kitchen which had a constant flow of traffic. The menu was quite poor in choice and the duck starter was just a few slices of cold duck on a plate and not too tasty. For main course I had the pasta with feta cheese and sundried tomatoes but after a few spoonfuls it was to rich and sickening to eat. We didn't bother with dessert as we were non to pleased with the starters and main and decide to call it a night. It's not somewhere I plan on going back to as it was not for us but I'm sure it'll suit a lot of people.

The Bistro @ Carrigaline Court Hotel
Carrigaline, Co Cork, Carrigaline, Cork

We went here for dinner on new years eve with my husband and there was a set menu. I think €35 pp for 3 courses. It was busy there and the atmoshere is good. However the food wasn't that nice and a bit disappointing. Seeing as it was a set menu it was like the food was mass made and almost reheated and thrown out!! We both had a chicken and ham volez-vont to start and this was ok but the ham was a bit on the fatty side which is a big no no for both of us. For main I had pork steak and vegetables and the meat was a bit hard and pieces were unedible. My husband had the steak and was less then impressed. The vegetables had a taste of reheating from them. for dessert I had a apple strudle which was lack lustre in pastry and I could have made better myself. My husband had trio of chocolate mousse and this was very bland. Very dissapointed over all and I must say I dont think we'll be going back there any time soon unfortunately.

Scoozi!
2-5 Winthrop Lane, Winthrop Street, Cork, Cork City, Cork

perfect for lunch or quick bite to eat. Food is good and reasonably priced. Restaurant is a small bit cramped and not very comfortable but its an in/out place for a quick bite. Great place to get a bite to eat if out and about shopping in the city centre

The East Village Bar Restaurant and Hotel
East Village, Douglas, Cork

Great place for a quick bite to eat after work or lunch or at the weekend or a bite to eat with a few friends. Staff very friendly and food very good. Buffalo wings, nachos and burgers are best on the menu. Casual dining and fast service with good value for money. Will definately go there again.
