Its rare I agree with Tom Doorly on anything but I fear I must concede on Augustines. Gorgeous food - had the six course taster menu and great value. Staff were great and only issue with the restaurant was that toilets were in main hotel lobby.

The Mills Inn
Main Street, Ballyvourney, Cork

This place is consistently good - busy but with excellent service - friendly,fast and professional. Staff seem to remain loyal as same staff on each occasion which is a good sign. I had the curry which tasted as good as the presentation appeared. There was a lunch special of cake and coffee which was very tasty and a home baked cookie alongside the coffee hit the spot. Great value pub grub.

Prego
18 Henry Street, Kenmare, Kerry

Having been to Prego before about a year ago and having raved about it to friends we were very disappointed to find it had disimproved so much. Staff were busy and it was neigh on impossible to get their attention - managed to get water refill when finished meal as forgot to bring to tale with meal. Pizza base was so thin it could have been a wrap and the place, whilst remodelled since last visit was cramped and dark rather than atmospheric. They were extremely busy but taking time to greet and check with diners if they had got their order is a minimum expectation. Many other great restaurants in Kenmare offering reasonable early deals – much better option for the money.

Cornstore
40 Cornmarket Street, Cork City, Cork

Myself and two friends ordered a shared bread with dips platter – after initially bringing a delicious looking Garlic loaf to the table in error they returned after 5 mins to check if everything alright – we returned the loaf and our initial order was brought to us after a further 10 min wait. All three of us ordered the curry (2x chicken and 1 vegetarian) and all were suitably disappointed with the well presented yet extremely bland and over priced offering. Two had asked for spicy yet we each tasted the others and agreed all were equally bland and decidedly under whelming. Tables were ‘too close for comfort’ and wine was average. A very disappointing experience overall especially given the positive things we had heard to the contrary – we can only assume the thai green curry is the dud on the menu!
