Went here with 2 friends for Sunday lunch. Such a relaxed warm atmosphere!! Staff were very friendly and the complimentary glass of champagne went down a treat. We were there for over 3 hours. The food is excellent. The portions don't look big, but after so many courses you really do get well fed. You are also asked if you would like to order sides, but tbh there is no need. Most dishes come with either salad or potatoes in any case. A great place to spend a relaxed Sunday lunch for adults.

Good value, tasty food. I usually order the lamb espetadas but sometimes it's nicer than other times. Their chocolate dessert is v nice. Toffee pavalova is not very toffee and the Tiramisu says it comes with chocolate?!? I was searching for it... Def wouldn't order that again, far too much cream on top of it and not coffee tasting. Service has always been v good in there, but if your sitting out of waiters view, it can be hard to get their attention sometimes. If you are going there as a couple, i would definitely ask for a table which is not near a big group! It's a great place for an occasion with a group of people, but you definitely don't want to be sitting next to them. Can b v loud from experience!

Jacques Restaurant
Phoenix Street, Cork City, Cork

I was there 2 weeks in a row on a Wednesday when they do there set dinner all night for €25. It was great to be able to go out to dinner at the later time of 8pm and still be able to avail of special offers. I had the hake for main course and it was superbly cooked! So good I had it on my second visit as well! The restaurant is in a great location to continue on to some bars for a drink after.

Fitzgerald's Vienna Woods Hotel - Old
Glanmire, Glanmire, Cork

Sunday lunch with children I went there last Sunday for the first time and thought it was birlliant for families with children. On recommendation I had rung ahead and booked a table for 3 adults and 2 children near the play area.When we arrived the hotel was warm and welcoming. The staff were friendly and very informative on how the buffet style worked. The function room looked great with white table clothes and chair covers. Our table was better than I could have expected!! Loads of space (which was great for a pram) and we were able to see my daughter in the play area clearly while we ate comforatably. A good choice for starters and main course. By the time we were ready for dessert they were only a few choices left. Next time i go, i will know to get desserts earlier! All in all though, a very good choice for families for Sunday lunch

Eastern Tandoori (Cork)
1/2 Emmet Place, Cork City, Cork

Had the early bird here. Very disappointing. Salad was old and main portions were half size but came with portion of manky mushrooms to make it look bigger. Will never have early bird there again.

Hogans Restaurant and Bar - Closed
Main Street, Carrigaline, Cork

Good food, good value. Tasty lunch menu. Usually service is good, but there was a group of 10 of us and one girl was left waiting so long for her burger, some of us had already finished.

The Gaelic Bar
Main Street, Carrigaline, Carrigaline, Cork

Besides their chicken chili toasted sandwich, food is very average. I ordered the Deep Fried Brie for E7.50. When it came out it was 4 very small bite size pieces, which were still hard in the middle, not properly melted. There were a load of chips with it, which was not on the menu. it was like as if they knew the portion was small so they bulked it up with the chips. Definitely wouldn't order that again.

The Boardwalk Bar and Grill
Lapps Quay, Cork City, Cork

I hate giving this place a good review because of persons associated with it, but i've had the seafood chowder there for lunch and it was extremely tasty. Staff were great. Attentive, but not in your face. They went through the specials and gave the prices. Many places often omit the prices. I was there another day in the evening and had the steak in the bar, again another good experience.

Augustines
Closed, Cork City, Cork

WOW! TASTY! I had the scallops with black pudding and chorizo salad for main course. One of the tasties dishes i have ever had. A lovely place to go for a special occasion. it's not cheap, but for what you are getting (compared to other places in Cork) you really are getting something you won't get elsewhere.

Bulman Bar & Restaurant
Summercove Kinsale, Kinsale, Cork

Great spot for an evening out. The bar down stairs has a lovely atmosphere and a great place for a drink before (and after!) dinner. The early bird is great value and orders are taken up to 7pm. Good selection of seafood on the menu.

Spice of India (Bishopstown)
Looneys Cross, Bishopstown Road, Cork, Bishopstown, Cork

My favourite Indian restaurant in Cork. Extremely tasty and friendly staff. Their phone can be a bit annoying if they have a lot of requests for take aways. But that can only be a good sign of the food!
