A group of us ate here last night and we were all really impressed. Everybody had a starter and the brie and the chowder were well received! For the main I had the king prawn curry which was excellent. Others in the group had the duck and the beef stir fry. A selection of burgers were also ordered, all of which looked wonderful and tasted great too, the Mexican chilli burger was the favourite! Overall a great dining experience, the staff were excellent and the menu is also very good value for money. Good quality food at appropriate prices. I would definitely recommend!

This restaurant was highly recommended to us and we were really expecting something different. This is a very good pub that serves food but not exactly what I would describe as a restaurant. However I cannot criticise the food. I had the beef stir fry and the meat was of a very high quality and very well cooked. The atmosphere in the pub was very lively and a real Irish pub experience. Overall a very good eatery but not somewhere for a quiet meal if that is what you are looking for.

Sash
No. 1 Pery Square Hotel & Spa, Pery Square, Limerick City, Limerick

We were staying at the hotel and benefited from the early bird menu which was available on Friday evening. From start to finish the food was superb. I had the beef bourguignon which was mouth watering. My partner had the steak which I tasted and would strongly recommend. A great atmosphere and a superb selection of wines. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

The Elm Tree Bar & Restaurant
Glounthaune, Cork City, Cork

I have eaten here before but it was about 3 months sincemy last visit. I was very disappointed this time however. We went here for lunch and all of us wanted sandwiches from the menu. I asked to have red onion omitted from my sandwich and was told that it was not possible to have the sandwich without the red onion. I was suprised by this response and ended up ordering something else which I wasnt very happy with. Overall none of us were overly happy with our food, a lot of the sandwiches looked like they were made up hours earlier. For the amount of money that they charge for the sandwiches you should be able to have one freshly made if you want one thing omitted. Overall I feel that the restaurant has gone downhill which is such a pity really.

ECO Douglas Restaurant
1/2 Eastville, Douglas Village, Douglas, Cork

This restaurant offers great value for money and this is why it is always booked out, at weekends especially. I ate here with a few girlfriends for lunch and all of our food was really great. My only gripe with this restaurant is that their booking schedule is very tight and there is no opportunity for you to relax at the end of your meal and order another coffee or bottle of wine after desert. The minute your main is finished you are given the desert menu and when desert is finished you are given the bill! However we all keep returning because the value is great and the food of a very good quality. I had the chargrilled fillets of pork which were excellent and the other 2 girls had the chicken pavesse which is legendary. Overall a great restaurant.

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

I really like this restaurant as it has a great Italian atmosphere and the staff are very helpful but not over the top. I brought some American guests of mine to this restaurant and they really enjoyed it. I had the Fusilli Alla Campagnola and it was mouth watering. My companions had a mixture of pizzas and salads and they all looked excellent. The pizzas can be made to order and were a very good size, maybe too big for some appetites! Overall this restaurant offers great value, service and most importantly great food.

Mangos Seafood Restaurant
Bridge Street, Westport, Mayo

We ate here on a Sunday evening and had luckily booked a table as the restaurant was very busy (it was a bank holiday weekend however). Both I and my friend had the seafood chowder which was excellent. I had the lemon sole for the main which I was a bit disappointed in as it was quiet dry. My friend had the lamb cutlets which were excellent though, a melt in your mouth experience. Overall a good place to eat despite the poor service at times.

Banna Thai
15 Maylor Street, Cork City, Cork

There was a group of us ate in this restaurant and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food. We ate a combination of starters which were all excellent, in particular the spring rolls and the prawns in a blanket. For mains we had a variety of curries; the thai green curry and the red curry were both amazing. One of the group also had the pad khing which was excellent. Although the restaurant was very quiet on the night the staff were excellent. We have also ordered take-away food from this restaurant and the food was of the same quality and delivered really quickly.

Gourmet Burger Bistro
8 Bridge Street, Cork City, Cork

This restaurant is a great little gem that is reasonably priced and caters for all tastes and budgets. I had the chicken and sweet chilli burger which was really succulent and cooked to perfection. My friend had the daily special which was the lamb burger. It looked great and was really tasty! The drinks at the restaurant are not over-priced and the service is excellent. I would really recommend this eatery, it is near the city centre and will definitely cater for all tastes.

Amicus
Paul Street, Cork City, Cork

I have eaten here lots and really love the early bird menu. Twenty euro for a starter, main course and glass of wine is hard to beat. What I love too is that it is available every day of the week. The Sicilian curry is really good and I have also had fab pizzas there, really fresh with generous toppings. A real gem in the middle of the city!

Bacco Ristorante Italiano
4-5 Chapel Lane, Ballincollig, Cork

I ate here a group of my girl friends and could not say enough good things about the food and the overall experience. Although it is hidden away at the back of some shops in the town centre, once you step in the door of the restaurant you are really impressed by the decor and the staff. It is an authentic Italian restaurant and the food is fabulous! The main courses are not cheap but I found that the extras such as coffee, desserts etc were reasonable so overall it balanced out. We were all happy with our food choices and are looking forward to going back there again!

Boqueria
6 Bridge Street, Cork City, Cork

My husband and I ate here last week and really enjoyed the experience. We have eaten tapas in other places outside of Spain and I must say that this was the best. The crab cakes were amazing! I would definitely recommend it, the wine was excellent as well as the food. It was also good value, two taste platters and two glasses of very good wine for less than €60. We came out of there full but not stuffed, a really good experience.
