“Just Delicious!” This restaurant serves really delicious food. The prawn starter was really good as was its large size, followed that with the sirloin steak and I had a very nice meal indeed. The service was very good too in this atmospheric restaurant. Will certainly be back!

“Simple & Excellent” We frequent Issac's and to be fair there was never an occasion that we could say that we were ever disappointed. This evening we visited & one of the party could not find anything they really liked & the waiter suggested one of the dishes prepared in a different, simple fashion. I would suggest the stake it was amazing & desert is not to be missed.

“Excellent ticks all the boxes” It's been over ten years since my last visit and thankfully it's as good as it ever was. Excellent food, wine and craft beers. We were a party of nine and everyone had a great time. No complaints all happy with their food selection. As the jazz festival was on the place was humming. Service was fast and efficient and we had to have the table back within hotel hours it suited us fine. If in Cork make sure you do not miss a chance to dine in this wonderful establishment. Looking forward to my return visit and I hope it will nor be a long wait.

“Great food, service and lovely atmosphere.” Spent the weekend in Cork at the Barbershop Convention and had a meal last night in Isaac's. We had booked as there were about 50 of us and we were under time pressure. The quality of the food was excellent and the service was both efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend Isaac's and will certainly visit it again......Well done!!
