Snug white-tablecloth eatery serving food subtly informed by pan-Asian influences. For Eithne and Jacque Barry it is all about the food (always confident, sometimes classic, sometimes inventive) and a wine list born of knowledge and enthusiasm.
Jacques is run by people who understand food, who have long embraced Escoffier’s principle of faites simple and who have the sensitivity and judgement to draw from many influences to produce menus that are very much their own. Having been in business for 30 years, they have built up a great network of growers & suppliers of raw ingredients in Cork, including beef, lamb, fresh fish, wild-game in season and wonderful local cheese.
Open Monday 10am - 4pm and Tuesday – Saturday 10am - 10pm. Lunch is from 12pm - 4pm, side plates and tapas from 5pm to 10pm and evening dinner menu is available between 6pm and 10pm.
It’s a place to which you will return, again and again.

"A must if and when in Cork" Lovely decor and interesting clientele. Great atmosphere, very helpful staff. Delicious food, crab starter then lamb followed by home made ice cream so good. Great wines. A very good last night in Cork.

"Fresh food beautifully cooked" If you enjoy good well cooked food, this is for you. I understand the ingredients come from the English Market which is close by. Menu is wide ranging and there is an early bird version. Excellent service and wide choice. Strongly recommended

"Lovely spot for lunch" My husband and I went for lunch with a friend of ours and enjoyed it immensely. A great place to sit and relax and enjoy a fantastic lunch. Service was brilliant, we were welcomed with a big smile and brought to our table. Very friendly and helpful staff and the food was fantastic. Would highly suggest to see the place for yourself and enjoy the atmosphere.

"Thoroughly outstanding" The quality and inventiveness of the cuisine here is truly amazing. There are many fine restaurants in Cork and SW Ireland, but Jacques stands out by setting a remarkable standard. Service is friendly and the atmosphere inviting. Not only that, but they will take a reservation for one person only. Go!
