It’s fair to say that Panorama Bistro & Terrace at the unique and iconic Montenotte Hotel is the envy of Cork, with its uninterrupted views out over the river Lee and city beyond. But it’s not just the scenery that attracts diners. Our chefs have worked hard to deliver inspired menus with due regard for provenance. So, if you’re kicking back with a craft beer and some local tapas or watching the sunset with a cocktail on our cantilevered terrace, Panorama is truly a unique dining and social experience.

Breakfast At The Montenotte Hotel

Breakfast in Panorama at the Montenotte Hotel Cork is so much more than the sum of its parts. Every day should start like this, a breakfast buffet using freshly prepared favourites, made with love and local ingredients. Combine this with the stylish surroundings and our spectacular view and you’ll find it difficult to rival this unique experience for the most important meal of the day.

Dinner @ The Montenotte Hotel

The saying goes: ‘Eat breakfast like a King, lunch like a Queen and dinner like a Prince.’ In our case a Merchant Prince.

The Merchant Princes of 19th century Cork built their houses in order to watch their trade goods being loaded and unloaded. In the evening they would enjoy a meal prepared with a combination of local produce and imported delicacies. At the Montenotte Hotel, we endeavour to provide you with much the same experience, carefully selecting our ingredients from local artisans and markets, in a setting that befits a prince, as you watch the lights coming on across the city below.
