Review on Fenns Quay Restaurant

Chef Kate Lawlor and two friends recently took over from the O'Learys at this popular restaurant is housed in 250-year-old listed building adjacent to Cork's famous Courthouse. It's a relaxed, informal venue festooned with contemporary artwork and with the added bonus of an attractive outdoor space for alfresco meals.

The food has a refreshing clarity and it's all based around carefully sourced Irish ingredients - many from Cork's English Market. Culinary influences abound, but the kitchen keeps a tight rein on things. You might kick off with a plate of antipasti before sampling Moroccan-spiced roast chump of lamb with skewered potatoes, roasted vegetables and tzatziki or Indonesian-style chicken breast with herbed basmati rice.

Homely desserts could encompass anything from Bramley apple crumble to dark and white pannacotta; also try the house special of vanilla ice cream with a shot of luscious Pedro Ximenez sherry. The wine list offers good drinking at reasonable prices.
