  • Poco Loco: mexican food!!!

    by DaniBachmann Updated Oct 15, 2003

    Very colourful interior and nice waitresses.
    The food is delicious- you should try a combination. You can choose between vegetarian, chicken and beef fillings and every combination comes with mexican beans.

    Strasbourg Goose: Early Bird!

    by Champagne_football Written Sep 26, 2003

    Affordable, tasty and plentiful! You only need to eat once a day if you go here. Watch out for the waitresses who will try to make you eat more - keep your head and know when to stop so you won't have to be rolled out of there!

    Favorite Dish: Anything on the Early Bird Menu (before 8 bells last time I checked).

  • Dino's: Real Chips

    by Aislingmc Written Sep 12, 2003

    Dino's is a chain of chip shop's located in Bishopstown, Ballincollig, Douglas, Kinsale and maybe more places. Real chips covered in salt and vinegar yummmmm!! the burgers and chicken is also really good.
    Portions are massive so if you are on a tight budget sharing chips on a bench can be romantic too!!

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Kebab - Cubed chicken on a stick, with mushrooms and pineapple chunks.
    A must are the best curry chips in the whole of Cork!! - My opinion!

  • Harvey's Cafe & Bistro: Coffee to Die For

    by TimFenn Written Aug 26, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Harvey's is located on Academy Street 100 metres from Patrick St and the Chateaux Bars. Open from 8am until 6pm, it serves the best breakfast I had in Cork for about €5. The coffee was excellent and if you're in town at lunchtime there's a fantastic array of freshly cooked dishes and paninis. Be warned it is popular with the locals and gets very busy at lunchtime. The decor has a very Mediterranean feel to it and this is reflected in the food

    Favorite Dish: Because the main menu changes regularly there seems little point in recommending one particular dish, but the burgers come highly recommended. Nothing but pure meat! As I said before the coffee is freshly ground and definitely the best to be had.

    Rearden's: Reardens/Havana Browns

    by haimee Updated Oct 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Reardens was the first place we ate in Cork. We received a friendly welcome from the staff and perhaps the best meal of our entire stay in the city.
    Reardens switches gears in the evening becoming a lively night spot.

    Favorite Dish: The menu changes with the featured chef. Choosing what to eat was difficult as it all looked so delicious.

    There are so many restaurants to choose from there is totally no way I could single just the one out!
    Many pubs do variety of lunches (including the traditional sunday roast) and most european menu's.Give a few of them a try and make your own decision.
    Southern Ireland especially Cork, has a unique feel about it and the atmosphere is warm and friendly.

    In Ireland, where else could be one's favorite restaurant, but the local pub?
    I'm thinking of a specific restaurant in Cork, naturally I can't remember the name (if I ever knew it).

    Favorite Dish: Duh, Guinness and fish and chips!

    My favourite restaurants are Scoozi's,Luigi Malones,Fellini's.
    These restaurnats offer a mixture of dishes from fish to pizza and pasta,to burgers.But they are not your average dishes.Mouth watering!!Trust me.
    They are both reasonably priced but Scoozi's is cheaper and more laid back.

  • Ruen Thai: Ruen Thai

    by drxym Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best Thai in Cork but for a price! The food is top notch and immaculately prepared but prices are high compared to other Chinese and Thai restaurants. Budget wise, you're looking at around €60 for 3 course meal for two.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken red curry

    Jacob's Ladder at the Watersedge Hotel
    The restaurant is big with local families for a nice place to dine. It overlooks the bay. It is family run, very friendly service, a separate section for smokers. There is seating outside on the balcony when the weather is good. The quality of the food is quite good for the price, c. Irish Punt 15.00 for a 3 course meal (menu).

    Favorite Dish: Grilled Salmon

    We never really ate at any where special while in cork .
    Did try a place with a scottish name called Mcdonalds very ordanary lol.
    There are plenty of nice little cafe style places.
    you can get plenty of great soup in these little cafe's
    there are plenty of pizza style places as well.
    The food chain Mark and Spencer has a store in cork and you can find some really good value pre made food there as well.
    such as pasta's ,noodle dishes ,soups ect.
    Being on a much lower exchange rate this store was just what the doctor ordered so to speak lol.

    Favorite Dish: I find one thing about the Irish pubs you may not always get the best meal in your life though the service is for the most part warm and friendly and the soda bread with the soups .Hit the spot on a cold winter day.

    We asked a Taxi driver where the Indian restaurants were but he said there were none in Cork. We found one playing country music and we were served by 'Cork asians' :-))
