The Liberty Grill is a place I come back to a few times a year as my (relatively grown up) children like the burgers there. I'll often choose a burger myself ( a sign of their quality as, snob that I am, I wouldn't normally be seen dead eating such a prosaic dish) Service was friendly and speedy - it was early ( 6.30 pm) but the place was already busy. They needed the table at 8.30 but that was fine by us. The ingredients were fresh, food was well prepared and presented and the coffee was excellent ( always important) The only downside was the loud banter from a party group near us who were obviously getting ready for a night on the town = but that's hardly the restaurant's fault. All in all, a place I'll be revisiting before long.

Gilbert's Restaurant & Townhouse
11 Pearse Square, Cobh, Cork

I don't know how objective my review is as Gilbert's is one of my favourite lunchtime haunts. The dining experience keeps me coming back and that is a real testament to the charm of the place. The decor is elegant, understated, cool colours, original artwork. the staff are calm, friendly and efficient- they know me by now and realize my time restraints. The menu is select but varied, the seafood chowder is particularly good and good value as I usually don't need a big lunch. The soup du jour is usually interesting and I'll often opt for a sandwich special @ euro 10.50 that includes small soup, ham, chicken or salmon sandwich on a choice of breads and a coffee - pretty good value. Speaking of coffee -it's always good ( a key ingredient of a good restaurant imo) the staff tell me it's sourced from Cork Coffee Roasters. As far as I can see, the place is always spotlessly clean and the bathroom is an example to other establishments - clean, piped Bossa Nova music, fragraced, with one of those snazzy Philippe Stark blade dryers that work quite well. Only negative point I can see is ..if the place is busy, we'll have to go deep into the interior where there are no windows and tables are close together, but that's the nature of the architecture and doesn't really diminish the overall excellent dining experience.
