Superb food. Park your prejudices about veggie food and enjoy Corks finest restaurant. I am a committed carnivore but love, love, love this place. Decor is fine if a little underwhelming but this is a total foodie experience created by a master who has an unrelenting passion for his trade and beliefs.

Have visited here a few times and always left a little disappointed. It's expensive and -to me - it doesn't live up to the great things you read about it. Mind you, my son is a vegetarian and he seems to like.

Our dinner here was outstanding, maybe the highlight was the quartet of lemon desserts - mini bombe alaska, lemon tart, lemon mousse 'cannoli' and lemon sponge. Absolutely everything was perfect, the attention to detail in every meal amazed us. A fabulous treat for the 3 of us on our first trip to Cork city. Can't wait for our next visit.

Food was ok, nice atmosphere, pleasant staff. A bit overrated and over priced. Wine was good, desserts were very good.

Such a beautiful restaurant, calm atmosphere, great service and most importantly the food is incredible. In a cool part of town next to a great coffee shop, quirky old bar and cool vintage andvinyl shop. Go!

I visited this restaurant on a business trip with some colleagues. We were informed it was a good restaurant and to pop by. It was midweek when we turned up and it was very busy! Little did we know we had just turned up to one of the most popular restaurants in Cork... They couldn't have been more polite, quickly... More

I visited here with my sister. None of us are vegetarian but we enjoy trying new experiences so we thought we'd try it and we were not dissapointed. We ordered 2 different starters and maim courses so that we could share and all I can say is fantastic. Beautifully presented, delicious flavours and very friendly staff. We'll definitely be back
