I had the early bird offer in Zaks - it was worth every penny! I had fishcakes to start which eventhough had too much garlic for me they were lovely. I had a fantastic steak as a main and my favourite - banoffee - to finish it off. It was an excellent meal and all washed down buy a lovely house white. The service was great and we will be back....

I had an exellent night in Electric to be honest. Had a few cocktails in the bar before dinner which were good. The restaurant is lovely and airy, with big windows which I love. The service was great but on a quiet Wednesday I wouldnt expect anything less. I had brie to start, which was amazing. Although I do love any sort of deep fried cheese! I ususally have steak when I go out but I thought I'd try something new, and boy was I glad I did.... I had rabbit! It was great. It was the bbq sauce that did it for me though! I had a chocolate pot to to finish which was a chocaholics dream! All in all it was an excellent night, I've recommended it to others since and friends have all good things to say too. I will absolutely be back to Electric.

Fenns Quay Restaurant
Sheares Street, Cork City, Cork

As part of the dine in Cork week we decided to try somewhere new. Feens Quay it was. It was excellent. The service on Monday was ok, the table and atmosphere was lovely. I had the warm chicken sald with sweet chili dressing which was amazing followed by a steak which was only average to be honest and cookies and ice cream to follow. The starter and dessert were excellent, the main was lacking. it will ot however stop me from returning to Fenns Quay. Good night all round.....

Amicus
Paul Street, Cork City, Cork

I had an impromptu dinner with a friend on Friday last and we decided on Amicus for a change. I had not een in there since they had done it up and to be honest what they have done has only added to the restaurant in my opinion. We went for the early bird which is great value for money. I had the burger which I loved and the toffee pavlova which was not. I cant put my finger on what was wrong with the pavlova but it just didnt taste right. The service wasnt amazing, the waiter was quite loud and forgot about my tea twice and I had to ask someone else for it but to be honest it wont stop me from going back.

Gambienis
6/7 Carey's Lane, Cork City, Cork

I had never been to Gambinis but I will absolutely go back. We went on a random weeknight so it wasnt busy at all so there wasnt much of an atmosphere but that wont stop me next time! I had a chicken and rice dish which was amazing, I would heve liked a bit more sauce though. We all enjoyed our meal though and it was great value for money.

Scoozi!
2-5 Winthrop Lane, Winthrop Street, Cork, Cork City, Cork

I love Scoozis for comfort food. I had forgotten just how much though! I meet some old college friends once a month and we decided on Scoozis as none of us had been there in ages. It was just as I had remembered it with just a touch of a face lift! The food was a good as ever and good value for money and the pavalova is simply to die for. The atmosphere wouldnt be fantastic but then I'm not one for loving to have to sing Happy Birthday to random strangers in the restaurant when they put it on the music system but thats the only thing that bothers me about Scoozis, everything else is exactly what you expect from a family orientated restaurant.

Panda Mama
14 Parnell Place, Cork City, Cork

I actually went to Panda Mama for an early dinner with my sister on Valentines day of all days! The service was great, we had a lovely waitress who was really informative. I had the peanut satay, which I havent had in a Chinese for years - it was excellent! Would totally return just for that meal! We were given little pandas on the table which we got to take home with us aswell which was cute, it is currently sitting in our hallway!

Cornstore
40 Cornmarket Street, Cork City, Cork

I went to the Cornstore with some friends for our post Christmas get together. I love the cocktails, they are some of the best around! We were offered the set menu or the A La Carte, we all went for the A La Carte. The veggie in our group had a lovely meal of ravioli. I had the burger which was cooked perfectly and I love how it is served on a wooden board! Another friend had steak which she liked. We were sitting near the back and one of the girls was in a bit of a draught which was a bit annoying but it was soon forgotten with the cocktails! The service was great, really attentive and added to the overall experience.
