Didn't know of this place but found by accident via Google's "near me now"feature. Always a bit dubious of where I might end up this time I was totally bowled over, the menu of GBB is rather quite extensive and everything just looked so very tempting. The ambiance of the place was most pleasant, service was excellent and best of... More

Great local beef perfectly cooked, great tasting home chips, wonderful sauces. Thoughtful service with a smile. A bottle of water on the table on arrival is usually a good indication of thoughtfully managed restaurant. Simple decor and comfortable seats. Friendly atmosphere close to theatre.

As we went here during the Cork jazz festival and there was a group of 7 of us we had pre-booked a table which is recommended over the weekend if you have a large group. Loved the ambience of the place and the staff were very welcoming and food delicious.

Looking for an early dinner table on a Saturday night, we popped into GBB. The Maitre D was very helpful and offered us a table in about 20 mins. Suggested we pop into bar 2 doors up which we did. And very nice it was too. He came in to get us 15 mins later and asked us to come... More
