My family and I went to the restaurant for breakfast. We got the best services and lovely Irish breakfast. The prices were reasonable. We recommended this restaurant for everyone who would like to meet the traditional Irish restaurant.

We stopped for lunch in Cork to visit the English Market and enjoyed both the shopping experience and Farmgate. We had cod and steak main courses. Good ingredients, well done, courteously served, and moderate prices. Recommend.

We went to the tea side of this restaurant and ordered the berry special brew. Delightful. Plus, the waiter was adorable too -- from Italy, not Ireland, lol. Nice place to rest while shopping. It's located inside the building, just above the market.

Grabbed a quick lunch after shopping in the market downstairs. Savory feta and kale tart, along with 3 fresh salads that were lick-the-plate delicious. Great beer and wine selection. And the staff was delightful and welcoming. The other review complaining about the service was inaccurate....More

Really expensive for average quality food and really low quality service provided in this place. A shot of orange juice for €2.50! Uncooked sausages that we had to return to be properly cooked. Waiters don't bother checking if you require anything else. They basically dump...More
