Cuisine: Degustation, Fine Dining, Irish
Price Point: Mains from €20 - €35+

A charming, fine dining restaurant that celebrates the best of Ireland’s natural larder.

Tucked away down a quiet alleyway in a former bonded warehouse in Cork’s historic Victorian Quarter, Greene’s boasts quietly elegant interiors and a handful of al fresco tables overlooking a waterfall.

Chef Bryan McCarthy’s food philosophy is simple: local, fresh and staying true to each ingredient’s essence. Expect the likes of Dublin Bay prawn dumplings, rare breed pork belly and Macroom lamb with preserved damsons. If you’re feeling hungry, the 10 course degustation menu is a must.

Sommelier Frank Schiltkamp has more than 20 years experience and has curated an excellent selection of mostly European wines.

To make any night feel like a special occasion, head to Greene’s.

Reviews

We enjoyed a beautiful six course taster menu at Greenes on Sunday evening. Looking out at the wonderful waterfall, each course was carefully described by our waiter and we enjoyed them all. Especially the shoulder of lamb which was so tender and the blue goat's cheese. A real treat for the senses.

We had a lovely time Greene's restaurant. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We had each course explained to us. The chef sent out little tasters complementary to us, which was a lovely touch.

We decided to go to Greenes for a date night dinner and we were very happy with the overall experience. We got very nice table inside, in front of the window with view on the small waterfall outside, that is definitely quite unique in the city centre.
The staff was super attentive and quick, also offering to explain anything that might be unclear in the menu. We decided to order starter, main and dessert from the "a la carte" menu and we were pleasantly surprised when we noticed that other than the usual bread and butter (which was also very good in this case) a small "amuse bouche" and palate cleanser were offered as part of the meal. Presentation was very impressive for each course and my favourite part of the meal was dessert, I loved the chocolate cremeux torte.
Prices are a bit on the high side, but it was somewhat expected considering the quality, attention to detail and research put into these dishes.

Can't fault anything. Greene's , as always, is up there with the best restaurants in Cork. Food and service are always second to none. The staff always make you feel special and the complimentary bites from the Chef are the cherry on top. 5 stars.

Greene's is always great. Everything is first class. The only downside is that the menu doesn't change very much.

We have dined previously in Greenes and know how good it is. We were therefore thrilled to see it on the First Table list of venues. The menu available to us was the a la Carte one, great choices, the staff were as usual very knowledgeable and attentive, all our food was charged at half price, only thing we paid full price for was wine and coffee. Really enjoyed the evening.

Excellent service, great ambiance, comfortable seating. Food was delicious but small portions (which is expected in a fine dining establishment). We will be back.
