Me and two friends came here in the evening looking for an easy place to spend a few hours with some good live music. We were so pleased to find really lovely staff who had great Irish drink suggestions! Also their adjoining bar had a fab deal with $3.50 drinks until 10pm. Then the live band came on and the...

Arrived in Cork late and desperately seeking food after 10pm. Doorman on nearby pub recommended Reardens as they serve food late. Got there at 10.45pm and girl said no problem getting food. Got a chilli beef pizza which really tasted good, although perhaps could have done with another couple of minutes in the oven to crisp it up a bit... More

Had a very nice experience there last Tuesday, the pizza was made to perfection as usual! However, I would have given this a five star review, except I was greeted in a rude manner by one of the waitresses. I don't mean to write a bad review, but I think this should be addressed. The girl was standing at the... More

We paid a visit to Cork for St Paddys Day and spent the afternoon and early evening in Reardens on the recommendation of a friend. The atmosphere was excellent, the band was very good and the very bust bar staff were overworked but they could not do enough for everyone. The security and door staff were friendly and had to...

Came here to watch the rugby and got hungry so ordered a cheeseburger. This has got to be the best taste sensation of a burger I have ever had. The fries were also perfectly seasoned, and the Guinness? Exceptional. This place is a must to visit. I'm still here now!!

Never been for food. Tough place to get in at night time unless your female or in your 30s. It's well over rated and planning to meet friends there is a pain because the personality less security are so inconsistent with the reasons they give. I once was refused after a pint and given no reason what so ever. There's... More
