I've been here several times, in different situations. Whether it's a date or a family celebration, whether it's for lunch or dinner their menu is outstanding. Everyone is smiling and courteous. Every dish is served and displayed with care. Ask for Mattia if you want to try an excellent cappuccino or coffee! Recommended :)

One of the best restaurants in Cork,bright well styled and a good atmosphere,they have a small simple menu with local produce cooked to perfection,only downside is you cannot book a table for less than 6 people so if your not there early you could be in for a long wait.

All the children's food was exceptional, cooked with great ingredients instead of the usual frozen muck a lot of places tend to offer. Between the salads , steaks... More

We popped in after dinner to grab some cocktails and dessert, and weren't disappointed! The service was great, the ambience was lovely, and everything was delicious. We got the earl grey creme brulee and bread pudding. The dinner menu looked fabulous.

The food was equally good and was at our table in no time. The... More

Description
Market Lane is an award winning restaurant and bar over two floors that offers great food, amazing value and friendly service always. Where possible we use ingredients from The English Market and local artisan producers to make up our menu which has a wide range of fish, salads, meat, game and sandwiches, in addition to coeliac and vegetarian dishes and a healthy kids menu. We brew our own beer next door, have a coffee blend exclusive to us and use herbs from our greenhouse. Take a virtual tour or make a booking on our website.
