About Rachel's Restaurant

Our purpose at Rachel’s is to serve simple, naturally produced and delicious tasting food from the local Cork area. Where possible our vegetables, fruit and herbs are picked then delivered every morning from our organic farm at Ballymaloe.

Our fish is landed daily from the waters of Ballycotton, our pork is reared by Darran Allen on his farm in Shanagarry, our chickens are reared by Robert Fitzsimons in East Ferry on his free range pastures and we have a hand full of local farmers providing high quality beef and lamb from in the east cork area.

The serving staff were excellent - so friendly and helpful! Food was very nice, not much choice - a few more options especially veggie ones would be appreciated, but very good quality food and the portions were very generous. Lovely meal!

My food had to be reheated as it was cold when it arrived at the table.

The staff were very accommodating as we were early for our booking and it wasn't an issue. I order the steak sandwich and my husband had the mussels. The sandwich was cooked exactly to my liking. However the mussels were over cooked and some were actually inedible which was a pity.

I had dinner here with two friends Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the ambience. The piano and cocktail bar to the rear was cosy and relaxing. I would highly recommend Rachael's.

We really enjoyed the soup and sandwiches. There was a variety of lovely flavours. It was quite reasonable in price too.

Table booked waited at least 45 minutes to be seated we were nearly going to leave. This never happens even in the busiest restaurants around. A lot of bored looking people waiting to be seated....

Starters were disappointing (soggy bruschetta) but the featherblade beef was gorgeous as was all our mains (rack of lamb & pork belly). Service was excellent, very friendly staff. Atmosphere was non existent the restaurant felt cold, no buzz, unusual choice of music (George Michael/80s mix?!) Overall a nice restaurant & I would return but wouldn’t be rushing back.

Had a great time with my family and friends for my 50th birthday party. I even sang with Jack O'Rourke in the piano bar!! Loved the food, kind staff, great atmosphere. And the whole staff came out and sang 'Happy Birthday' for me. Thank you for a memorable night!

We had a lovely experience in Rachel's. The food was top notch, we both had the John Dory and it was cooked to perfection. The wine choice was good (not too large also, which is a positive). The table staff were attentive and knowledgable. We had a couple of drinks in the bar after and were entertained by a wonderful singer and piano player.

One of our party was not happy with his meal as his Steak was cold, the waiter was excellent in his follow up and the service was exceptional. Will definitely recommend your restaurant

Need better value in wines, especially for large parties.
