Amicus Restaurant in Paul Street, Cork

(Paul Street)
021 4276455

My first impressions on entering Paul Street’s Amicus, after a long absence, were good. There was a jolly welcome and we were escorted to our lunchtime table upstairs. Seating was comfortably and the place looked good and clean.

The service was friendly and smooth throughout and we were asked if everything was okay two or three times which is about sufficient.

The food was excellent. I went for the specials, I often do. Started with a Celery and Bacon Soup, a hearty bowl of freshness with plenty of tasty bits in there.

Picked the main course off the board: Lamb with vegetables, garlic and rosemary mashed potato and a red win jus. Everything here was spot on, particular the vegetables which were cooked to a t, indeed a degree or two better than in a recent dish at Market Lane where they were a touch too hard.

They really have a huge menu here, huge choices and some bargains to be had. The drink list is also extensive and they sell red wines by the glass. I picked the De Gras Cabernet Sauvignon and this deep red medium bodied Chilean was great value at €4.95.

The bill for two (2 starters, 2 mains and 2 wines) came to €42.80. Would be quite willing to go back there again for an evening meal.

Just back from Amicus Paul Street ,Cork City. Amazing value for the early bird menu pre show dining. French onion soup was superb with freshly baked bread. An extremely generous chicken stir fry seasoned with extra chili at my request. And the berry crumble and vanilla custard was so seasonal. Round it off with a creamy cappicuno,exceptional service, cosy suroundings and you have the perfect dining venue. If the reader thinks all I was short was a man , well let me say that he was there too and was of the opinion that his haddock in cream and dill was equal to the very best of fish restaurants.
