Jacques is by far offers the most delicious food I have ever eaten from a restaurant. This was my fifth visit and as per usual the food was well prepared, full of flavour, varying textures to contrast eachother and excite the mouth. I eat out quite a lot and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of food in jacques. They offer 3 menus and so are flexible in price. In comparison to supposed high quality restaurants where one could pay up to 200 euro on a meal for two Jacques food far surpasses these pretentious restaurants where the cooking is merely competant. The wine list is outstanding! The service is of medium standard. The only problem experience was when my partner went to the bathroom there was only 1 cubicle available in the men's room. However I would highly recommend this restaurant without a second thought to lovers of good food.

Liberty Grill
32 Washington Street, Cork City, Cork

While I generally enjoyed my experience in Liberty Grill and would probably recommend it I found my food to be a little bland and the service to be a little awkward. The menu read very well and all the food is fresh however it lacked any real discerning tastes as if the chef was scared to really use the flavours. I found it quite expensive for the basic meal I received also. I would go and try again though.

Bodega! (Waterford)
54 John Street, Waterford, Waterford City, Waterford

The food was an absolute winner. Such a perfect marriage of flavours while being artistic and pushing boundaries is hard to achieve as these chefs have done. Six of us ate and everyone was impresses. Hats off to this locally sourced, well varied and perfectly executed menu. The setting is comfortable and fun and the service was fine.

Boqueria
6 Bridge Street, Cork City, Cork

I had a belly of pork stuffed with apricots. It literally melted in my mouth. it was served with salsa verde on a bed of beans. Every flavour bounced off the other perfctly. the service was superb and the bill was very cheap. There are however no 'formal' dining tables as it is a wine bar setting. I would recommend anyone to go here.

Geoffs Cafe Bar
8/9 Johns Street , Please call us directly for Bookings 051-874787, Waterford City, Waterford

I go here very often for a chilled out bite to eat. It's the only place in waterford that offers good quality and a variety of cultural cooking at reasonable prices. It's simple food done brilliantly. Not just your fun of the mill soup and sambo. It can sometimes be a little inconsistent though. But the fresh ingredients and cheerful atmosphere always out weigh. Highly recommended for great lunch or casual dinner.
