The Cornstore Restaurant Cork is situated in the heart of Cork City, on Cornmarket Street.
As one of Cork's best restaurants, we offer a casual, warm and lively dining experience in a Manhattan style setting, complete with a unique wine and cocktail bar.
Specialising in seafood and steak, the ethos of our restaurant works on the philosophy of "quality food sourced locally". We source ingredients for all our dishes from local suppliers where possible. Organic, free range and artisan producers are reviewed on a regular basis, with our own chefs inspecting off-site premises to find the very best ingredients. Executive Chef Mike Ryan with Head Chef John O'Connell focuses on local and seasonal produce to create each signature dish.
Whether you are dining with friends, family or colleagues, the Cornstore is the perfect choice for quality food in a great atmosphere.
Padraic Frawley - Proprietor
A native of Co. Limerick, Padraic has always had a desire for the hospitality business. At the young age of 25 he took charge of his first venue and has since never looked back. In the years that followed he first delved into the hotel world, then set his mind to open the first Cornstore in Cork. Following this success he moved closer to home and in Nov '08 Cornstore Limerick opened its doors.
Padraic believes the driving force behind the Cornstore's success is based on a few key ingredients: "Sourcing local suppliers, producing fresh quality ingredients in-house, employing only the best staff and most of all listening to our customers to create an all round experience which will make people feel at home when dining out."

The Cornstore Restaurant spans 2 floors offering a casual, warm and lively dining experience in a Manhattan style setting, complete with a unique wine and cocktail bar. The interior is mirrored to match the stylish elegance of its sister restaurant in Limerick with intricate floor tiling, pewter style bar, cosy booths and intimate lighting.
Both Cornstore buildings were selected because of their historic presence and the belief that the old and new can be successfully combined to create an old style with a modem ambience.
Our candle lit pewter style bar also houses the "Verre De Vin" wine preservation system to ensure freshness of all our wines which are available by the glass.
Feel free to enjoy a tasty cocktail or glass of fine wine by the bar or outside in our contemporary heated smoking area.
