Went here a couple of weeks back and had a really terrible experience. Sat down to the table they gave us and there was dirty cutlery and broken glass under the table. The jug of water they gave us had a lump of clear sludge on the inside, and didn't seem to have been washed regularly. We ordered the pizza, which was worse than a frozen overcooked shop-bought pizza.. had really cheap toppings, cubes of chewy salty ham, and just didn't taste freshly made and the base was really hard. My friend ordered the chicken pesto.. it looked like roadside restaurant kid's pasta - it didn't look appetising at all and they didn't even try to make it look nice with a sprig of basil or anything. The chicken in her pasta was cheap and came in cubes, for the price of the dish you'd want freshly grilled breast of chicken and not some processed stuff out of a bag. It also came way too quickly which is always a bad sign, clearly hadn't been made to order and was probably just microwaved. We found a hair in the pizza, it had been cooked into the cheese and wasn't the same colour as our hair so we knew it wasn't ours. They took the pizza off the bill but it was all overpriced anyway and definitely wasn't worth the price. Unfortunately both myself and my partner who shared the pizza had severe food poisoning the next day, which wasn't great timing as we had 3 hours in the car back to the airport and then longer traveling back home. We also know it was from the food we had at scoozi's as it's the only food we had the same while we were in Cork. We had the brownie too (probably should've stopped at the pizza but we were with friends who had recommended the place), that wasn't heated through properly, it was warm in some parts and cold in others. I would've preferred them to have not reheated the brownie - either serve it freshly baked or as is. Really disappointed with this place and obviously won't be ever returning.
