Absolutely amazing food. If you go, please try the Mussels.
Mai was excellent, she made us feel comfortable as soon as we sat down and described the menu.
The beer is excellent and… well the steak was, just on another level.
I have eaten in New York's best steak restaurants, Kobe beef in Japan, and Argentinian gaucho steaks. This small, informal restaurant in Cork, served me the best steak I have ever eaten: period. The rest of the meal was memorable as well. The waiter meticulously...described the cut of beef and its preparation, including a final melted butter and garlic torching. I bought a pack of their "rub", regrettably using it up within a few weeks and uncertain as to how to duplicate the amounts of numerous herb, brown sugar, and spice ingredients on my own. Who would believe that in Cork, nonchalantly venturing into a Trip Advisor highly-ranked restaurant, I'd eat the best steak in my life, spanning over 6 decades!More

Where to start !
On arrival we were greeted and seated by the friendliest waiter I have ever met, he seemed to genuinely like his job, he talked us through the menu and specials in a way that made us want to order everything. The...food here was amazing, probably the best steak I have ever had. Great food, lovely atmosphere and all for a reasonable price. The food alone is worth a visit but what really makes it special is the staff, the pride that they take in their produce is fantastic, each staff member was excited about what they were serving and genuinely thrilled that we enjoyed the food they that clearly and deservedly stand behind. This is what a dining experience should be.More
This was one of the best meals we had in a long time!
We had the lamb and the t-bone, both cooked to perfection, deliciously seasoned, homemade chips were fantastic and the chocolate mousse was out of this world!
Totally recommend the place! It's a...must see in Cork (we were visiting from Dublin for the night).
The staff is genuinely friendly and make your experince worth while.More
Cozy restaurant, great place to have dinner. The friendly and enthousiast waiter will take time to explain the menu. The ribeye is delicious, prepared on the fire in the middle of the restaurant. Also tasty desserts.
We had a great experience at Elbow Lane. The service was fantastic and the food was amazing. The place is tiny - only a few tables so you need to book in advance. We would definitely recommend this place.
waitress gives you the proper dining experience.
we went in and were sat down. as we are reading the menu the lady went through it with a fine toothcomb. the origin of the food the taste of it and commended our choices.she wasn't rushing and...was very customer focused. location is right next to the kitchen and its an experience seeing your food prepared and your steaks get the seasoned and on fire! ordered share boards and she described all on the plate. highly recommended this place..oh food tasted great but all restaursnts need food and service. simple. and these guys have it.More
