I was unhappy with the food and the service. I ordered pan fried salmon, it came out like it was cooked a number of times, very dry and leathery. The plate was filled with wedges mainly.

Portion sizes are very generous and prices reasonable. Staff are always very helpful and friendly. A tiny criticism would be that the decor/furnishings are a bit tired, the place would... More

Having been to this Bistro on two occasions recently, I can't tell you how impressed I was by the quality of service and kindness of the proprietor. Nothing was too much trouble for my young daughter who has additional needs. Crayons to draw with, lollipops and a party hat were given to her to help her relax and enjoy her... More

I have visited a few times when visiting friends in Cork and the food here is great. They are always welcoming, chatty and helpful. This time we visited was a quiet Monday afternoon but have been before on a Saturday evening. My friend has the carbonara every time as she states it's the best she's ever had. This time I... More
