If you like Indian then this is the place to go in Cork! Ate here on a Saturday night. Shared an onion bhaji starter & ordered Murg Makhani & Chicken Malai. Food was great, good portions & so tasty. Bill came to €43 which I thought was extremely reasonable for the meal we had. Have gone there for takeaway since & wasn't disappointed.

Nandos Mahon Point
Mahon Point Shopping Centre, Cork City, Cork

What can I say about Nando's? Great service. Tasty food. Won't win any Michelin stars but very enjoyable. I don't like to use a cliché but it does exactly what it says on the tin. Its predecessor in that location was certainly not up to standard so its great to have a nice place to sit down & eat if you don't wish to go to the food court on the 1st floor. This was the 2nd time I've gone there & I was lucky enough to get a booth - this makes it a better experience so I'd advise people to ask for them if they're going.

The White Lady Restaurant
Kinsale, Co. Cork, Kinsale, Cork

I went to The White Lady for the first time on a Sunday evening. I had heard great things about the place & it didn't disappoint. The atmosphere is great & pubs should pay a visit to learn what how pub grub should be done. There were four of us in the group & each of us came away very happy. Fresh, tasty food with creative presentation & served with a smile. Not cheap but you definitely get what you pay for. Looking forward to a trip back.

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

Went into Luigi's late Sunday afternoon for lunch. Good atmosphere & friendly staff. We ordered the baby back ribs & a cheesburger. Food was delicious. We then shared a scrumptious toblerone cheesecake. Great value for money, service was quick & pleasant - definitely will be going back.

De Barras
The Square, Bantry, Bantry, Cork

On Saturday last my girlfriend & I went to De Barra's for lunch. When we arrived there was no greeting so we sat at a table in the middle of the restaurant. The atmosphere was quite nice & the place had a pleasant look to it. The fact that we were in Bantry we both decided to order fish from the specials menu. I ordered seafood tagliatelle & she ordered fresh baked haddock with a Mediterranean sauce. After about 5 minutes our waitress arrived with breaded fish & chips. We questioned whether this was the haddock which she assured us it was. We called her over to ask where the Mediterranean sauce was and then she took it away saying she didn't realise we had ordered from the specials board. 15 minutes later she arrived back with my seafood tagliatelle and a plate of salad & chips for my partner. We had to call her again to enquire about the haddock which then arrived on a separate plate. My food looked like a dog's dinner. I was given a knife & fork (no spoon) and wasn't offered any parmesan cheese. It tasted more like chicken than fish & I wasn't even sure what type of fish it was supposed to be. The pasta was overdone & it was all served in a watery tomato based sauce which only tasted like onion. Her haddock was rubbery & the sauce tasted like it came from a jar of Ragu rather than inspired by the Med. Noboday came to our table to see how our meal was going even though it was quite obvious that I wasn't eating mine. Towards the end of the meal a different waitress asked if everything was ok. I gave her my honest assessment & she agreed that the food looked below par. I was offered a replacement meal but I wasn't interested at that stage. She said she would sort something out & took my meal away. Again, we were left alone & decided it was time to go. I went to pay & was told that I was being charged just for the drinks & the haddock. I paid & we left. At no point did anyone even apologis for the lack of any service or the extremely poor food. Very disappointing
