We frequently stop at the Speckled Door after a day at the beach in Garrettstown and have never been disappointed. Wheter its just a bowl of soup, a sandwich or dinner all the food is fantastic. On our most recent visit I had the fish and chips while my husband ordered the steak sandwich. The fish was perfectly fresh and although my husband enjoyed his sandwich he was disappointed he didn't order fish because I was raving about it. The portion sizes are huge and the chip are perfect. It tends to get busy and sometimes service can be slow but it allows you a chance to enjoy your drink.

Milano (Cork)
8 Oliver Plunkett st, Cork City, Cork

Have been to Milano's on a few occasions and have not yet once been dissappointed with their pizza. Once I did have a chicken ceasar salad which was ok but nothing to rave about. If going to Milano ordering pizza is the only way to go. It's big open space is cheery. Great place for families with kids.

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

Met up with a group of friends in the East Village on a Monday evening. We opted to dine upstairs in the restaurant as it seemed quieter than the pub. We each ate from the early bird menu which was 3 courses for 20euro. There was a good selection to choose from on the early bird menu. The wings were by far the best I have found in cork and come with sauce from mild to insane. As a main I had a Philly Cheese Steak which was huge and came with a side of chips, but the sandwich itself was nothing to rave about. The only offer for dessert was a selection of ice cream with the early bird menu which was a bit of a dissapointment. I would definetly go back for the wings but will order another main dish next time.

McCarthy's Bar and Bistro
Eden Hall, Model Farm Road, Bishopstown, Cork

Our local SuperValu had an offer of two three-course meals for 35euro. Though the menu was restrictricted for the offer their was at least 5 choices each for starters and main courses. Despite my partner wanting more bread with his pate starter the portion sizes were very good. For mains he ordered BBQ ribs and it came with two fine sized slabs and chips. I had a warm chicken salad as a main and it was both fresh and too big to finish. For dessert we were allowed to order any dessert they had that day and we both were pleased with out apple tart and chocolate cake. While we may not have gone to McCarthy's without the offer, we are likely to return as the menu was varied, the food was tasty and the service was excellent.

Cornstore
40 Cornmarket Street, Cork City, Cork

Great meal out! Met up with a friend I hadn't seen in ages at The Cornstore. We both had pasta dishes and a side house salad. My penne was cooked to perfection and the portion size was perfect. The decor is tasteful. It's a huge place and it did get loud after a while but the waitstaff was happy for us to sit and chat over coffee for hours. Is an excellent place to meet friends for good food.

Heaven Pizza
Classes Lake Retail Park, Ballincollig, Cork

We've been ordering Heaven's for takeaway since it opened. But recently we decided to dine in. We knew we would love the food and it's great value. But the atmosphere in side is great too. Nicely decorated and the staff are courteous and friendly. They always seem to have excellent meal deals. There is no reason to order pizza from anywhere else in Ballincollig.

Eddie Rockets (Blackash)
Travelodge, Kinsale Roundabout, Blackash, Cork City, Cork

Recently went to Eddie Rockets with my family. Was cheap and cheerful tasty burgers and chips. We each had a dessert and all left full and content. There seems to be good value to be had as the menu states a family deal for 25euro. Overall it was exactly what we were expecting from a no frills burger joint.

Cafe Mexicana
Careys Lane, Cork City, Cork

My paretner and I recently visited Cafe Mexicana and ate from their early bird menu. Having eaten there before we were very disappointed this time. For starters the nachos were simply tortilla chips with melted cheese. The Friojles con Queso were good. For our mains we had enchiladas and burritos. Both of us felt that our food was not evenly heated and had quite possibly been reheated in the microwave. Even the refried beans seemed microwaved as they were hard on the outside. Despite friendly service, a nice atmosphere and tasty sangria, we left disappointed and feeling that there was much better value to be had around Cork.
