Lal Quila
Tramways Terrace, Old Garda Station, Douglas, Cork

recently ordered a take away from here and the service was terrible. they rang us back three times to ask the same directions and when the food arrived there were about four pieces of chicken swimming in sauce. not good service or good value.

Strasbourg Goose
17/18 French Church Street, Cork City, Cork

they have a great value set menu with a large choice for coeliacs/those with gluten intolerance (like myself) the waitress was very knowledgeable and pleasant and a seat by the open fire on a cold winters night was much appreciated!!! would definitely go back.

RAJ Gaylord Indian Restaurant

Visit here about once a month for their lunch special and it is always very enjoyable. They have the nicest onion bhajis i have ever tasted in Ireland!

Boqueria
6 Bridge Street, Cork City, Cork

Food was ok as was the service - wasn't very busy when i was there but service was pretty slow. It would be a nice place to relax with some wine and nibbles but definitely on the expensive side!

Fota Restaurant @ Fota Island Resort
Fota Island Resort, Fota Island, Cobh, Cork

Had the most amazing meal here on New Year's Eve. It wasn't cheap (€95 pp for a set menu) but it was out of this world. We were given a glass of champage each to start with as well as a smoked salmon and caviar canape which was a nice touch. There was a lot of seafood on the menu and it was all really fresh and delicious. Main course was a choice between halibut or beef and venison - both were perfectly cooked. There were 5 or 6 courses but there was no rush, we were there for about 3 hours in total. I would love to go back but it would have to be a very special occasion!

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

back again a week later for my second visit which was even better than the first! i was with a group of 8 and we were very well looked after, despite a slight mix up with one of the orders where one person asked for gluten-free pasta. the kitchen prepared risotto instead and comped us one meal so we were happy with that!

Copper & Spice Restaurant
Above The Mill Bar, Anncotty Village, Annacotty, Limerick

went here for my dad's birthday lat weekend and had a very bad experience. we booked a table for 6.30 in order to avail of the early bird special and also because we had cinema tickets booked for 8.45. the service was very slow, we were standing for a few minutes before being shown to our seats and then nobody came back to take our order for at least ten minutes. after that the drinks and starters etc came fairly quickly and were very good but after our starters were taken away, we got no replacement cutlery and after half an hour i had to go up to someone at the desk to ask where our main course was. we were told that someone had mistakenly thought our table were done and had just left us there. we had to gobble down our mains in order to get out of there in time for the cinema. no offer was made to reduce our bill even though we had no time to have dessert but after mentioning this they gave me €12 off the total. there were a lot of bookings that night but the restaurant seemed to have plenty of staff working to cope with the numbers. obviously there is a lack of communication between staff, we didnt have one waiter assigned to us, it was someone else each time and this must have led to the confusion. i would be very slow to visit here on a saturday night in future.

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

called in here for food when we couldn't get a table in eco's. had the chicken wings to start with which were delicious as always but the main courses were disappointing - i had fajitas and my partner had the curry - very bland, the sauce tasted like gravy! service was quite ok but wouldn't be in a hurry to have dinner here again, will just stick to the wings!

Star Vast Chinese Restaurant CLOSED
17 Princes Street Cork, Cork City, Cork

have mostly gotten take aways from here but the food is always really nice and excellent value for money. the chow mein in particular is lovely, not as gloopy as some other places

Cornstore
40 Cornmarket Street, Cork City, Cork

Been here twice and had lovely meals each time. Also found the service to be among the best in Cork. The only gripe I had was the fact I asked for some more bread with my soup and ended up being charged an extra 3 euro for three slices!

The Pembroke @ The Imperial Hotel

Ate here for my birthday a few weeks ago - was also sussing the place out as planning on having my wedding reception at this hotel next year. Was very impressed with everything - excellent service, lovely food and nice surroundings.

Cafe Bar Deli (Cork)
18 Academy Street, Cork City, Cork

Always enjoy going here - service is always good and it feels much classier than the price you pay!! Not so good if you're on a diet maybe, it's all pizza and pasta and yummy desserts!!!

Marco Polo not live
O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick

Waiter we had very familiar with Coeliac menu options, was able to tell me exactly what I could and could not have and was very helpful with suggestions. I had the Gambas for starter which to be honest was pretty bland and prawns were overcooked but my steak main course was gorgeous. Partner had curried lentil starter and fajitas and was happy with these. Great atmosphere and lovely staff.

D Mughals
158 Westend, Mallow, Mallow, Cork

Been here a few times, always enjoy the food. One small thing we found on our last visit was the service was quite slow but this may have been due to the number of dishes we ordered. Excellent value for money and very willing to swap dishes on set menus. Excellent mango lassi!!!
