Electric didn’t disappoint”

Lucinda O’Sullivan (Sunday Independent)


Tom Doorley (Irish Mail)

One of the most striking dining rooms in the city”

Joe McNamee (Cork Examiner)

Given the quality of the food, the service and the ambience, I thought, very good value”

Paolo Tullio (Irish Independent)

If the Electric was a car, it would be German: wonderfully engineered, luxurious, but not ostentatious, and with some serious horsepower under the hood.”
