Visited here last night and it was a bit "meh". Fabulous looking place but was very disappointed by the food. I love tapas but what we got wasn't great. We ordered three tapas with the intent of maybe ordering more if we liked them. Had...More

Came here with my boyfriend quite late at night and we were delighted that the kitchen was still open. The food was excellent and the waitress Evelyn was so lovely she left us with a great first impression of Cork.

Arthur Mayne's Pharmacy is a 120-year-old chemist turned wine bar. The perfect spot for an afternoon coffee and scone or for somewhere to eat in Cork, the pub's beautiful and intriguing surroundings are a welcome addition to the city's night life - even the toilets will catch your eye - but you need to arrive early if you're to guarantee yourself a seat for the evening. food is served from 1030am - 130am
