We went to the fish bar at electric, the food was amazing and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Really good value for money as well, worth a visit if in Cork!

We ate here last week when visiting Cork. I had the scampi which I can highly recommend... Really tasty. We ate outside as it was a lovely evening. Couldn't fault the food or service.

The menu is good, the service is friendly and quick, the food is tasty & flavoursome, what’s not to love? One of the nicest restaurants in Cork. Location is fab too, esp on a summer’s day!

Ordered the daily special beef wellington. Was extremely hot and suspect microwaved. Very well done inside. Portion too large.. Just terrible. Expensive too.. 28 Euro plus sides.

We sat inside in a big beautiful window over looking the river. Outside has a great space for sunny days too. The food was delicious (the sliders were our favourite) and lovely wine to wash it all down! Service was friendly and efficient.

Calamari was not on the menu but oysters were and they were according to my colleague exceptional. None of us had what you ordered so not sure but the quality of the food was good and a fair price for the restaurant. I find... More
