Finally we managed to make the long journey (for us) to this highly recommended cafe, and we weren't disappointed. There was a broad choice on the menu all at a good price point, and now I want to return to try so many of the other dishes. My vegetarian choice was utterly delicious, and it was a generous quantity for the main course. They justly deserve their great reputation: lucky Cork having top class Palestinian food in the heart of the city. I am eagerly planning my return.

The food is really full of flavour, and the staff are welcoming. On both occasions I’ve been recently, I’ve had to bring home a cinnamon roll for later - so delicious!

It was our first visit to you we really enjoyed it xx we were a party of 4 with 1 vegetarian who was really impressed with the menu choice. The only thing I would have liked was a little spoon to use with the dips x I’m iffy about double dipping!! But we will definitely return xx thank you

Seamless Online booking, delicious flavours and hospitality. This place has so much heart. This was my third visit and we enjoyed the musakhan Rolls, magloubeh, and traditional hummus along with tea and dates for dessert. Truly a special place to return to again and again.

I visited your restaurant many times and I'll be back for sure. The only suggestion I have is for the place itself. Every time I get to the same conclusion - I'd love to see you guys moving into a larger restaurant with more tables - it would give people a chance to enjoy your food and coffee (drinking coffee is a ritual and it takes time) properly without feeling that they need to rush. Secondly, it would provide better experience if we would have more space around us and more private dining experience (and avoid that cold air from door opening every few moments). Thank you for the effort you put in every day and you will always be my choice #1 for Cork City restaurant!

Really enjoyed our delicious meal in a relaxed environment with friendly helpful staff on hand. Perhaps water jugs on the tables would be an idea for the future as we were quite thirsty? Otherwise we had a lovely few hours enjoying the food and hospitality at Izz Cafe.
