I got the Easter takeaway afternoon tea and it was amazing. By far one of the best I've ever had. Huge amount of sweet and savory treats in many different flavours - all great quality!

We had take out meals of 1 starter and 2 main courses and they were all fantastic. All dishes were so tasty and there was plenty in each dish. The food was still hot by the time we got home. We will definitely be ordering dinner again.

I thought that charging extra for side dishes was a bit unfair as in most other places veg and potatoes are included in the main course

Hi, Delighted to provide feedback. This wasn't my first time having Afternoon Tea in Fairbanks and as always it didn't disappoint. If it were possible to give 10 stars to our waitress Cliona, I would give it. She was fantastic and no request was too small. Employee of the Month to be sure. From start to finish this was a wonderful experience. Thanks, Laura

Had a lovely meal with friends on Sunday night. Beautiful restaurant overlooking the River Lee. We had a table in the corner and found the ambiance to be very relaxing. The staff were attentive and friendly and didn't rush us. It all felt very special. The food was lovely but perhaps a tad expensive (€19 for fish n chips). Then again, it was an enjoyable meal and I don't regret the money spent. Covid measures are being taken very seriously here too. All the staff are wearing masks and the tables were very much spread out.

One of the best restaurants in Cork . Food was fantastic couldn’t fault anything . We were looked after by Lucy and Irene both a credit to the Kingsley . On leaving we also meet a lovely guy on reception called Joe who also was very friendly and made us feel very welcome and appreciated the custom . Well done to all the staff keep up the good work and enjoy the Christmas .
