Went here for our work christmas party. From the set menu, I got the goats cheese tart, the chicken breast stuffed with spinach and a melody of desserts. Have to say that the food was absolutely delicious, I was stuffed afterwards! The service and atmosphere were wonderful and I will be returning again for sure. Also, SoHo validate parking!!

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

Hi, Came here with my partner for our Valentine's meal and we both ordered from the set menu. Starters: I got the potato and leek soup. It was delicious and piping hot but the one thing I would add is that it came as is and without any bread etc which I thought a bit odd. My partner got the Chicken wings and thought they were lovely. Mains: We both got the steak and we were well impressed. It was a big portion of good meat and you also got to choose whether you wanted skinny or chunky chips etc which was a really nice touch. Dessert: My partner went with the Toblerone cheesecake, and he was a little dismayed by the initial size of it, but once you took a bite you realise how heavy (in a good way) it was and he loved it. I got the profiteroles which I loved! 4/5 big healthy fluffy ones, with ice cream inside, drizzled in chocolate size and a scoop of whipped cream on the side. Price: Price for us both came to around 65E (we weren't having wine etc) which I found very reasonable Service: Service was top notch. Waiters could not have been better especially considering what a busy night it was. They also offered loyalty cards etc at the end of night which is a very good idea.

Wah Yun Chinese Restaurant
1A Main Street, Ballincollig, Cork

Came here for a quick bite last night. Myself and my partner are very boring when it comes to Chinese, and I got the Chicken Curry with boiled rice and he got the Chicken Balls, Chips and Curry. The service was perfect, and the interior was nice enough, bit bland to be honest. The food on the other hand was delicious, proper chunks of meat and the curry was sweet without being over-bearing. There was also the right amount. Would recommend it more for a quick bite than a romantic evening.

Greenes Restaurant @ Hotel Isaacs
48 MacCurtain Street, By the Waterfall, Cobbled Courtyard Close, Cork City, Cork

Hi, A group of about 20 of us came here for our Xmas Party meal last week. We had two large tables by the waterfall and ordered from the set menu. I had the spiced beef for starters, 3-way beef for mains and cheesecake for dessert. I absolutely loved my meal, thought it was delicious and the portions were very generous! One comment I did have was that for vegetarians (of which we had a number in our group) the only option were butternut squash, which was the only dish for both starters (butternut soup) and mains. The service was fab and we had a great night. Already looking at coming here again soon!

Cafe Mexicana
Careys Lane, Cork City, Cork

Hi, While out xmas shopping in the freezing cold at the weekend, we were looking for something to heat us up as well as fill the gap. I had been here before and loved it so decided to come back. O and was I happy, food was delicious and the atmosphere is fabulous too, would definitely recommend this place for lunch, not sure about dinner as I have never been before.

Jacques Restaurant
Phoenix Street, Cork City, Cork

Hi, Ate here last Thursday for a business meal. Atmosphere was next to none and the service was top notch, with the waiter having the perfect etiquette and balance of being attentive yet not over-bearing at the same time. I got the steak for my main meal. The meat would crumble in your mouth and you could take as many or as little sauteed potato slices as you wished. If also came with the perfect amount of garlic butter (which melted into the steak), onions and mushrooms. As I was so full from the main meal, I only got the ice cream for dessert (under any other circumstances I would most definitely have gone for the chocolate fudge cake as it looked divine). The ice cream was vanilla pod with some raisins and sherry with sugar powered homemade hazelnut biscuits on the side. The sherry was a little strong for my personal liking (everyone loved it), but I crumbled up some of the biscuits and put them into the ice-cream and it was like a dream. Will certainly be coming here again soon!

Panda Mama
14 Parnell Place, Cork City, Cork

Ate here as a last minute choice last Friday night with my partner after hearing so much about it. The decor the begin with is fantastic! Every detail is perfect and the place looks fab. We both only got a curry each as we were going to the cinema afterwards, but they were both delicious, and we got free prawn crackers to start with which is always a plus. The staff were super-friendy and pleasant, and the place was full of people which is always a good sign. Would recommend Panda Mama to any one in the mood for a good chinese!

Boqueria
6 Bridge Street, Cork City, Cork

Came here last night with a few people for work. 2 of the group are vegetarians so this was a good option. We got one vegetarian tasting platter and two normal one. Food was lovely, although I didn't try any of the fish. When we ordered our second round with all of the items we liked, they didn't give us enough of each item for everyone at the table so some people couldn't try everything. The grilled Brie was delicious as were the Patatas. Atmosphere was top class also. I would recommend this place for snacks on a Friday night with some friends and wine. I wouldn't recommend it if you were starving and wanted a big meal. Would still come back though.

Salvador Restaurant
9 High Street, Killarney, Kerry

Hi, Myself and my partner were in Killarney for a concert and wanted to have a meal about 4.30 as the concert was on early enough. We found it near impossible to find a place that was open before 6pm on the main street that would serve A La Carte menu and then we came across this place. We got the early bird menu, so treated ourselves to the 4 course meal and even went all out and got the Pepper Sauce Steaks. Food was delicious. Staff were lovely. And the dinner only came to 51Euro which included 3euro supplement for steaks. And we had lots of time to make the concert too.

Market Lane
5/6 Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork City, Cork

7 of us went here for a work meal last week. Atmosphere was fab, staff couldn't have been friendlier or more efficient. My meal was: Starters: n/a Main: - Rib eye steak with garlic mayo sauce and potato & bacon gratin. This was divine! Perfect portion size for me, and everything complimented each other Dessert: -Chocolate Fudge Brownie with ice-crea For this my eyes were bigger than my stomach. As I had finished my entire mains as it was so nice, I thought that the brownie would be small like in most places. It was huge. Delicious but huge so couldn't finish it. A chocolate-lovers must though. Will return here soon for sure.

ECO Douglas Restaurant
1/2 Eastville, Douglas Village, Douglas, Cork

Ate here with my partner last night and we basically did the works on the place - still stuffed! For Starters: Me: Selection of garlic breads. Scrumptious! Him: BBQ Mushrooms. Not great, no BBQ taste at all at all. Mains: Me: Double Eco Homemade Burger. Huge but lovely...would go for just the single one next time. Him: Bacon and Cheese Burger. He loved it, very very good meat and mix with the bacon and cheese. Dessert: Me: Snickers Cake & Scoop of Ice Cream. This is DIVINE. Very very filling though! Only get this if you like the normal Snickers bar. Scoop of ice cream was huge too which was delicious. Him: Cheesecake. Again, divine. Best biscuit base ever and very high quality ingredients used. Overall I will be going back again. I was eyeing up a Beef Madras on the table next to me so I really want to try that. The price was great, as well as the service. I would agree with other reviews that all of the tables were very close together. As yesterday evening was a very hot evening, it was a little bit uncomfortably hot inside but it didn't bother me too much.

Heaven Pizza
Classes Lake Retail Park, Ballincollig, Cork

Recently moved to Ballincollig, and every Friday night is our 'Takeaway night', but this has slowly turned into 'Heaven Pizza night'. The food and service is top notch. They also do fantastic meal deals. They are very up to date with technology too, so you can order food online etc, and even do curb-side pick up. They easily do the best takeaway pizza in Cork. Will be here again this Friday!

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

Ate here last night as we had heard some good reviews about the place. We got the Early Bird menu, which is served nearly everyday up unitl about 7 - 8pm (depending on the ay). It was €22.50pp and the set menu was quite nice. There was basically one of each type of meat etc. I got the chicken wings to start with, they were really really nice but the sauce with them had a little but too much vinegar for my liking. For mains, I got the rib eye steak, this was delicious. I came with sauce, breadcrumbed onions, homemade chips, carrot puree and the best mash potato (and a lot of it too!). I didn't quite like the choices of desserts, but that was more of a personal opinion as i'm quite picky when it comes to dessert. I chose the baked cheesecake, it was really nice, but I couldn't finish it, but that was only because I had polished the plates to my two previous courses! The service couldn't have been better, and I would come here again. I feel it would be perfect for business meetings etc.

Il Padrino Pizza Pasta House
21 Cook Street, Cork City, Cork

I cannot count the amount of times I have been to Il Padrinos. I was here last Saturday night again as a treat. The food is delicious and very very reasonable. The atmosphere is next to none, and the service is fantastic. I would recommend this as a romantic setting or ever if you wanted a night out with your friends. Good food, drink and service, what more would you want!

Jacobs on the Mall
30A South Mall, Cork City, Cork

Jacobs on the Mall is where we always tend to go for business dinners. Everything about it is perfect. When you go in, the friendly staff hang up your jacket for you, and you are then offered a selection of fresh various breads as well as individual butters. The menu is perfect. You can choose from anywhere on the menu (including the set menus) and for the quality of food, it is reasonably priced. For starters I had the goats cheese tart - best I have ever had. And for the mains I had the steak, which was huge and perfectly done with divine mash and mushrooms. For dessert, I had the warm apple pie with ice cream. Jacobs on the Mall is perfect for something special!

Zaks Restaurant (Cork)
No 4 Marlboro Street, Cork City, Cork

Was here last night for Valentines with my partner. They had a set menu for 29.95 which was one of the best offers around in the city that night. The starters wouldn't have had the best variety of options, but I had the goats cheese tart and my partner had the crab brulee. The tart was lovely but to be honest, I've had one elsewhere probably nicer, but that could just be my own taste! For mains we both had the steak - oh my gosh - absolutely incredible. Everything about the dish was perfect. Dessert really was sinful, I had the chocolate and walnut brownie...the center of it was heated and the chocolate just melted in your mouth, and the whole brownie was about the size of your normal large slice of chocolate cake. It was served with cream. My partner had the warm apple crumble with cream and ice cream (which I had a taste of too!) was delicious! Will certainly be coming here again

Banna Thai
15 Maylor Street, Cork City, Cork

Three of us came here Saturday night for dinner. We each only had the main course. I had the Thai Red Curry which was absolutely delicious, portions were huge and I couldn't finish it. The price was very reasonable and the location as well was the atmosphere was very good. The English of the staff wasn't the best, with there being a good bit of confusion when trying to order...for example my friend wanted her vegetables with just the Soy Sauce instead of the Soy sauce and Oyster Sauce, and they thought she meant she only wanted a bowl of soy sauce for her dinner lol. But in the end it was all good. Would recommend this place and will go there again myself again.

Tung Sing - Blarney
Ashdale House, Blarney, Cork

Where to start! Went here last night, as I have many many times before. It is absolutely delicious!! I was boring and got the chicken curry, but it tasted fabulous. The Tung Sing in Cork City is the exact same. Both have a fabulous atmosphere with the most helpful and nice staff. Price is very good, food of highest quality and the staff are great. One of the best chinese in Cork!

The Lansdowne Arms Hotel
Kenmare, Kenmare, Kerry

Went for dinner here with a group of friends over New Years. Place was lovely looking inside. Atmosphere was a bit dull but I think that was just due to the fact we were there a bit early as when we were leaving some live music was just setting up. I had the beef burger, was delicious and a huge portion. Other members of the group had the scampi, goujans and fish and chips. The presentation was great and everybody enjoyed their meal. I had the selection of icecream for dessert, and others had the fudge cake and apple pie. Had a bite of all of these and everything was of a very high standard. Price was reasonable too at about €15 for all main courses.

Prego
18 Henry Street, Kenmare, Kerry

A group of us spent New Years in Kenmare. We went to Pregos yesterday morning for a full Irish Breakfast. All came up under €10, and was delicious. Each plate had 2 sausages, 2 rashers, half a tomato, little mushrooms, a fired egg, and endless amounts of toast tea and coffee. Atmosphere was lovely and the service was top notch. Was here last year also for a group meal, and from what I recall, that was delicious too.

Bullys Restaurant (Douglas)
7 Douglas Village, Douglas, Cork

Went there last Friday for lunch with my family. Two people got the Bullys Special (this chicken dish with cheese and slices of sausage), my partner got a pizza and chips and I got the burger and chips. My food was delicious and everyone else really loved their food too! The only thing I would change would be to have chunky chips instead of skinny chips, but that would be more of a preference thing! For dessert, three of us got warm apple crumble with ice-cream and cream and butterscotch sauce, it was mouth-watering. One person got the chocolate cake with ice-cream, cream and chocolate sauce and she loved it too. Everything came to about €60 which included tea and drinks during the meal too which was pretty good! Will definitely be back again!
