Went here with my girlfriend on a busy Saturday night and the barman was able to accommodate us as we didn't have a booking. Staff very friendly and helpful! Food was delicious especially the monkfish curry! Lovely restaurant and great atmosphere!

Had lunch with my girlfriend couple weeks ago , I really enjoyed the toasted sandwich and soup . Staff were really nice and polite always were asking if we were okay . If I'm in Cork I would definitely go there every time .

We have been here first time and it was great experience to try something different than usual. Tapaz was delicious we took 4 of them and all of them were perfect. I think it's a little expensive because I was still hungry after (probably 6 meals would be ok for 2 people) or maybe it's because I enjoyed it so... More

When you enter the restaurant you immediately feel comfortable and look forward to the evening. It has a wonderful ambience which was not spoilt by the wonderfully trained and friendly staff. The menu had a wide and varied selection and when the food arrived there was no disappointments. We had a great evening and will return on our next visit... More

Popped into the little café/wine bar attached to the main restaurant and accessed via Oliver Plunkett Street side this morning. While from outside the cool, almost corporate air of the place might be off-putting for the casual scone-eater, once inside I settled myself into a cosy nook and realised I had made no mistake coming in there. The coffee was... More

I had been meaning to try Jacques for years, and when I finally had dinner here this week I was not disappointed. My fiance and I each had three courses and each one was outstanding. I had the duck for main which I wouldn't normally go for as it can be fatty, but the meat was cooked beautifully and the... More

We had a delightful evening meal here before a show. We opted for Tapas in the front section of the restaurant and managed to get low seating in the window (which is my preferred opposed to the high stools also on offer in this section) The gin fizz cocktail was delicious, although pricey at almost €10 per flute. My boyfriend... More

Firstly the service was just perfect. Great staff that are very good at what they do. As a table of 6 on a busy night we couldn't have asked for more 😊 The food maintained that standard throughout our 3 courses. Two small criticisms, the crab was slightly overpowered by cumin (but all plates were cleaned!) and the falafel was... More
