The girls and I recently ate here . Staff were lovely , menu option was wide loads for tapas lovers and plenty for those who want to play it safe . Ideal for a girlie catch up or a date night major plus that you'll rarely see children in there 😃

Called in on spec and luckily table available. Decided to try variety of tapas between us and liked them all particularly goats cheese with fig and onion relish and black pudding samosas. Gorgeous baked alaska and chocolate brownie for dessert. Helpful,friendly staff with fresh well presented food. Would visit again.

I really do. The quality of the food doesn't slip ever and every meal is as good as the last. I've been on many occasions, whether a work lunch or a dinner with friends, and the setting, food & staff are top notch. Definitely in my top 5 places in Cork to eat!
