We have been regular customers for a while now and always have the best experience. We usually have our children with us and the staff go above and beyond to make our time enjoyable. We had a function for our sons christening 3 years ago and some of the same staff still work there and welcome us back like old friends. The food is the best in Cork and we usually choose the river lee for any special occasion now. We even opt for the croke park if we go to Dublin as we know the experience is similar. Thanks for making our day out and my birthday so special yesterday

Hi. Thank you for reserving space for in the bar yesterday. It was ideal for what we needed but there was only one girll serving behind the bar. I was standing for 20 minutes waiting to be served eventhough there was only one other prrson at the bar. It was very frustrating. Despite this we had a very pleasant afternoon.

We loved the relaxed atmosphere and ambiance in the bar. The seating was very comfortable and we really enjoyed the evening tapas style menu which our server from Portugal recommended. He was very helpful in helping us choose a lovely rose wine for our meal. We really appreciated his help!

I was recommended here by a few friends from cork. It didn't disappoint. The food was fab although the sharing board could do with a little more bread. My husband had the fish special and I had the duck. Stupidly ordered truffle fries which I couldn't find space for as I was full from the duck. Lovely place for a special occasion! Would definitely come back again when in cork !!

We were a party of 4 adults and 1 child, celebrating our daughters graduation. We were particularly impressed with our waitress who , in a very busy restaurant, was attentive and efficient and extremely pleasant. We could not fault the quality of food or service on what was such a special occasion. We will definitely be back!!

Myself and my husband, really enjoyed our beautiful three course meal and the bottle of wine we had. A Big Plus for us was that there were no Supplements for any of the dishes. This really irritates us when we have a dinner included in our hotel package and invariably there are at least 2 to 3 items on the starters and mains that have supplements. So well done to The River Lee Hotel again on this front. The negatives I have is that I thought the restaurant lacked ambience. We have had dinner at the hotel before when it was served in the Mirror Room, now used for Breakfast. We found this to be much more conducive for dinner and had more atmosphere. Also I wondered why they had no white tablecloths on ALL the tables, only on two.

The Fabulous interior added greatly to the experience, the rain was hitting the windows while we were sitting inside a warm and cosy dining room. A unique experience. ​​
