Cuisine: A La Carte, Contemporary, Irish
Price Point: Mains from €20 - €30

An elegant new all day spot that showcases the best of Ireland’s natural larder…

Handily located in The Metropole Hotel Cork in the heart of Cork’s historic Victorian Quarter, The MET combines traditional hospitality with a philosophy of simplicity and plenty of contemporary flare.

Menus are a love letter to passionate local producers. Think confident, classic plates such as Irish smoked salmon with tarragon, beef short rib braised for no less than eight hours and strawberry millefeuille, delicate folds of flaky pastry sandwiched together with plenty of cream.

The wine list is equally classic, focusing on the major wine making regions of Europe. For something a little more avante-garde, retire to the bar for a post-dinner cocktail in suave surroundings.

Interiors are dazzling, with lashings of marble and decadent velvet touches in varying shades of blue - the perfect setting for that special occasion dinner shared with the people you love.

Firstly like to start with the restaurant it was beautifully decorated and a nice chilled out atmosphere. The staff were excellent and very attentive, special mention to Laurent, Claudia and Luigi and made our dining experience more enjoyable. Food was fab and the deal is unbelievable value for the early bird. Will be definitely going back.

The standard of food and service was excellent. From we arrived our experience was 5 *. Daniel and his team are to be congratulated. The scallops and asparagus starters were superb follies by the lamb and rib eye. The French Sauvignon blanc highly recommended..

Had such a lovely dinner at the Met. The resultant itself is beautifully decorated. Food was delicious and service was quick and attentive. My other half got chicken croquettes to start and they were divine. We both got the hake for main which was so good with delicious crispy skin and a big portion of mash. Also got the nicest cocktail ever, the Met cooler which was like bittersweet watermelon, to die for! It was somewhere I would never think of going but we will definitely go back, thanks for introducing us to here :)

Had a wonderful evening at the Met restaurant, very pleasantly surprised, the decor beautiful and very relaxed atmosphere, we opted for the 3 course pre theatre menu and it was delicious, I had the chicken croquettes followers by beef burger and gorgeous homemade chips, followed by Eton mess desert, my husband opted for the prawns followed by hake and chocolate brownie all absolutely gorgeous, our waiter Luigi was so friendly and helpful offering us extra helpings of delicious crusty rolls, it was our first time using First Table and certainly won’t be our last !! cant wait to use it again fantastic value, we had two 3 course meals all for 30 euro !!! Think wel be dining out a lot more !!!
Thanks for a great evening

We went to MET restaurant for my husbands birthday meal with our 4 year old daughter. We had a great experience, the pre-theatre menu has something for everyone. We had a prawn Marie Rose starter which was lovely, my husband had the burger which he was very happy with and I had sweet potato gnocchi which was a really nice dish! from the dessert menu the Eton mess was to die for so tasty!
Kids menu was great too and it is nice that there were different prices for 1-3 choices from the menu. Our girl had bangers and mash and loved it. Also it was great to have the coloring sheet with activities to keep her happy. Service was great although we did wait a little while to pay in the end. Would definitely recommend, we sat at the bar side which is beautifully decorated. We will go back!

I've never been here before and I was pleasantly surprised! The place is very nice and sophisticated, relaxing atmosphere. We arrived on time and got offered the option to wait until 6pm if we wanted to choose from regular menu rather than early bird and still benefit from the offer (probably not always possible, depending on how busy it is, but still nice for them to mention).
Staff was very friendly and attentive, food arrived quickly and was really good. We went for early bird menu in the end and I would definitely recommend the chicken croquettes and fillet of hake.
Very good good value for money overall :)

Service impeccable. Food delicious. Great wine list. 10 out of 10. We'll be back again and again.

We dined at The Met got the first time. The bar and restaurant area are newly refurbished and very stylish and comfortable. The restaurant has plush, velvet chairs and couches. I find this very comfortable and much prefer it to wooden chairs. Especially as a woman I appreciate the antra space on the couch so that the handbag does not need to go on the table or even the floor.
The service was friendly and attentive.ff I have to fault anything I would say that the ambiance of the restaurant is leisurely elegant - a bit of nice bread and butter or a dip would have been appropriate in this setting.
The food was lovely. One regret we had it the very limited choice. The condition on the First Table booking is EARLY BIRD Menu ONLY. This limits you to the choice of 4 mains only: one of them the fish dish and one vegetarian.
It was fine for a once off - more regular dining on this deal would get a bit monotonous.
Otherwise we had a lovely evening. There was no rush to leave but then again it was a Tuesday.
Thank you The Met for an enjoyable dining experience.

This is my second time dining through first table. The first time was excellent food was great portions size really good and service was excellent also. This time we arrived and they only had 2 down for the booking not 4 which I booked. So the was no table ready we were not waiting long but it still wasn't ready. Then 2 had the prawn cocktail starter, prawns were tiny and very tasteless. I had the chicken croquettes which were lovely but definitely a smaller portion since the last time. Mains were good. Service overall was good but not great. Staff are very friendly but forgot a lot things during our dinner cutlery drinks etc.
