My favourite place to get a pizza has to be Il Padrinos. I always leave satisfied. It has a really nice, cosy interior and is a great place for a romantic dinner. The staff are pleasant and some of them are Italian which makes it seem more authentic as an Italian restaurant. Good value and they don't rush you, also they give you chocolate mints when the bill comes which is a nice little touch.

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

The service was terrible, forgetting to take my order for wine and then forgetting my side dish. Overpriced us by €70 by adding desserts to the bill that nobody had ordered! The food was okay, the onion soup was delicious. And while the ham hock was very tasty the potatoes were dry as if they were reheated, likewise with the vegetables, and the cheese sauce had absolutly no taste, it was only good for moistening the dry potatoes! The dessert however was lovely, I had the brownie. So all in all a bit hit and miss!

Vista
Shearwater, Pier Road, Kinsale, Cork

Went for lunch here and was disappointed. The waitresses were unfriendly and the service was very slow. I got a chicken bap but there was only a small amount of processed chicken pieces. Then there was a very small portion of potatoes, one salad leaf covered in dressing and a small scoop of coleslaw. My boyfriend had a burger which came on its own, no cheese, and no chips or sauteed potatoes, he was still hungry. A bit expensive for what it was and the portions are too small.

Nakon Thai
Tramway House, Douglas Village, Douglas, Cork

I really enjoyed my dinner here. I had green Thai chicken curry, and it was delicious! Couldn’t say anything bad about it! However the baileys cheese cake was disappointing there was hardly any biscuit for the base and it didn’t taste like baileys. The restaurant itself is cosy and nicely light, perfect for a relaxing dinner. The staff were pleasant. I will definitely go back. good value too!

Continental
7 Maylor Street, Cork City, Cork

This has to be my favourite restaurant in town! When you arrive you are greeted by a friendly face, and a basket of fresh bread is brought out for you! The menu is delicious, its always changing, and it is very varied. Its such great value for money also. The desserts are out of this world! The Polish Cheese Cake is a must! There really is no other restaurant in Cork like the Continental. Even the coffee comes with a little homemade biscuit! It's great food, great prices, great atmosphere and lovely friendly staff! Go and see for yourself!

Kudos Bar @ The Clarion
Lapps Quay, Cork City, Cork

Had a terrible meal here last night. Arrived tables still dirty. Waitress couldn't find any cocktail menu for us, and couldn't tell us even what cocktails they did have, in the end we tried to order a Mojito, (which one would think is a basic cocktail)she went to the bar to ask and came back saying they don't do them. In the end we ordered wine. Different waitress then came back to take our order she arrived and said "Are ye going to eat? the kitchen is closing so if ye want something order now!" What a rude way to take someones order, also it was only 9pm!!!anyway I got the Thai red curry, it was terrible. The chicken was so tough it was like chewing on rubber! And there were no vegetables with it, it was just rubbery chicken floating in a red soup. After finishing another waitress came over and cleared our table and asked us if we wanted dessert. she called out the desserts to us and said she would come back to take our order after she had cleared the table, that was the last we saw of her! and there was no other staff around except one or two behind the bar and I didn't feel like walking around to find another waitress to ask for a dessert! It was one of my worst dining experiences, I had high expectations when I looked at their webpage which makes the restaurant appear like a classy up market restaurant but don't be fooled its basically like being in a pub, they even TV screens on the walls! You'd be better off getting a take away!

Tribes Coffee Shop
8 Tuckey Street, Cork City, Cork

The service isn't always great. I was once asked to leave if I wasn't going to buy anything else! Beware of the milk in the jugs sometimes its been left out too long on the table. I've been served a few bad coffees like a cappuccino with no foam, and once the hot chocolate had lumps! also would it hurt them to put a little biscuit on the saucer if you get a hot drink???? The thing with Tribes is that there are no other cafes like this in Cork where you can go for a coffee late at night so I do go there but I wish they would up their standards a bit.
