Greenes Restaurant: Cork

A vibrant experience which will make your tastebuds tingle! Greenes, with its majestic 60-foot city centre waterfall in its outdoor courtyard, offers upscale global cuisine served in a stylish, converted 18th-century warehouse, set in Cork’s historic Victorian Quarter.

Head chef Bryan McCarthy was awarded Best Chef in Cork at the 2015 Irish Restaurant Awards, as well as the Best Skill & Innovation award at the 2016 YesChef awards. His eloquently executed dishes highlight his creative flair with local Irish ingredients. His talented team works in tandem with the best local food producers to create a menu tha is devoted to seasonal, foraged and organic ingredients.

Traditional food practices, such as pickling and fermenting, together with innovative techniques, as well as quality, sustainable meat and fish, and locally sourced organic vegetables and herbs, have transformed Greenes into the destination restaurant that it is today.

If you would like to attend one of Cork’s many Theatres, Comedy or Music Venues, why not make Greenes your pre-show dining destination.

Greenes Restaurant opening gambit is an exterior most restaurants would kill for. Just off busy MacCurtain Street, and through an old stone archway one finds a secluded waterfall falling from high on a natural cliff face.

Head Chef Bryan McCarthy is clearly still enamoured with working in the splendid surroundings at Greenes restaurant in Cork, but it's more than just the view that keeps the place packed out!

His menu of eloquently executed dishes highlights his creative flair with local Irish ingredients and culinary skills that are recognisably award winning…

Greenes is not a cutting edge establishment and there are times when I'm very grateful for places like this…
