Al Fresco at Cobh's Titanic Bar & Grill.

Titanic Bar & Grill
Hard to beat eating by the water when the weather is as good as this. I enjoyed a leisurely lunch at the Titanic Bar and Grill in Cobh yesterday. On the outdoor deck, of course, watching the harbour cruise and Spike Island tour boats come and go and the kids diving into the deep cool water from the nearby pier.

Had started the morning with a visit to Fota Wildlife Park. Great to see the car park close to full and many punters, including lots of children, who are well catered for with special events and play and activity areas.

On then to the harbour town itself which was quite busy as well, people out and about and that five foot walk (by the deepwater quay) proving popular. Parked there and made my way on foot for a hastily arranged rendezvous with another couple at the Titanic.

I went for one of the specials: the Pan Fried Hake Fillets served on a bed of rocket with cherry tomato and spring onion salsa and rustic potatoes (11.95). Another winner at the table was the Green Thai Curry (13.95). This came with sauté vegetables and basmati rice and you had a choice of chicken, prawn or beef. Beef was the chosen one here.

Quite a choice of mains as you could pick from a Prime Irish Beef Burger, Traditional Fish and Chips, Smoked Salmon and Gubbeen Bruschetta, a Cajun Chicken Wrap and many more.

No shortage of choice in the Starters either. One of our gang enjoyed the Hot and Sticky Chicken Wings (extra napkins provided without you having to ask for them). Mussels were also available as was a Traditional Chicken Caesar Salad and A Sesame Crumbed Brie Cheese. More too including soup of the day, which was Celeriac, Apple and Sage.

Great to eat outdoors but quite a few were inside as well, closer to the bar! It is of course a full bar so you have all the usual choices but they also have some craft beers including Galway and Dungarvan and the popular Stonewell Cider is also available.
