This hidden gem is a must visit when in Cork! The food was delicious, cocktails fabulous and service attentive. The lamb melted in your mouth. All of the flavors were so delectable. Ambience is wonderful and a great place for dinner for any occasion or just because. Highly recommend!

Top spot for very tasty food, Moroccan inspired cuisine delivered to a high standard at a good price. Excellent team on the ground, helped us feel at home with a 15 month old.

Kid-friendliness: Not a child kind of place. However if you can’t resist the menu, they do takeaway for everything.

A gorgeous restaurant! Went there this evening with my partner while visiting Cork city. Chose it based on its menu and it didn’t disappoint. The vegetarian cannelloni was delicious. My partner couldn’t make up her mind so ordered 2 starters and 2 sides as her main course - sesame cauliflower which was divine, lamb kofta, delicious, flatbread freshly made with a fabulous hummus and potato fries. We polished off the lot. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Lovely looking with a cosy atmosphere and our waitress was very charming and friendly. Go there!

Vegetarian options: Two lovely options for mains and gorgeous cauliflower starter plus a few veggie sides.

Dietary restrictions: I have a severe nut allergy which was very well accommodated.

We were pleasantly surprised with how nice the food was in Orso, the food was excellent quality and the staff made us feel really welcome. We will definitely eat here again when we are back in Cork.

Vegetarian options: They had a lightly battered cauliflower dish that went really well with a provolone dish.

Welcoming place to go with friends, a couple or on your own. Beautiful food and drinks. Friendly and attentive staff. I had the baked cauliflower as a starter and the chicken supreme as main dish, both were amazing, also the "surprise me!" mocktail was perfect. Even though I was the only guest outside, they turned the heater on for me. Thank you for the lovely experience. I'd definitely come back. 🌟

Lovely meal, the food was delicous and staff very attentive.
We had a full vegetarian dinner with melted provola for starter, cannelloni and dahl. Each dish special in its own way, very rich and with generous portions.

The only small downside was the music which didn't add much to the nice romantic caldelight atmosphere. Personally prefer a quieter place to talk, but didn't hinder too much the experience all the same.

Cocktails originaux délicieux, nourriture copieuse et travaillée à un prix raisonnable, une adresse vraiment sympa en soirée !
Aussi, les cuisines ferment tard (22h à mon passage) et le personnel est particulièrement accueillant et souriant.

(Translated by Google) Delicious original cocktails, hearty and elaborate food at a reasonable price, a really nice address in the evening!
Also, the kitchens close late (10 p.m. when I go) and the staff is particularly welcoming and smiling.
