Mad Fish Restaurant

The Mad Fish Restaurant, set in an annexe room off the bar, offers a full A La Carte menu with fresh Seafood at it's core - perfect for those looking for a more formal dining experience. Whilst Seafood is at the heart of the mains menu there's always a meat dish. Beef comes from craft butcher Tom Durcan, whose ten or twelve ounce striploin steak is cut from the whole side of beef, dry aged in the traditional way for at least 48 days. Something for all tastes!

Sunday Sessions and Art Exhibitions

Cronin's bar and Madfish Restaurant offers entertainment regularly with music and art exhibitions being held throughout the building. Hardly surprising when you discover that daughter Joeleen and her Chef brother Denis were the original organisers of the popular Redhead Convention Festival, originally a joke between the two siblings.

Our Review of Mad Fish Restaurant at Cronin's Pub

Mad Fish restaurant is the formal dining room of historical Cronin's Pub in Crosshaven. In the pub you get a brief bar menu. But here at Mad Fish, the works is laid on. Needless to say, fish is a big part of the scene, befitting this pub's location so close to the waterfront. A favourite spot for sailor's from Cork's yacht club to refresh after a day on the water. Mad Fish is set in an annexed room to the rear of the pub.

This little eaterie has a funky feel, due to the interior design skills of Sean and Thecla's daughter Joleen, a graphic design graduate who's also well travelled, a competent sailor, and creator of published photographic books which feature her dramatic shots of the coastlines of Cork and Kerry. Her interior style for Mad Fish is a mix of trad and modern, coupling painted tongue and groove walls, original exposed stonework and old fireplace with light colours and an atrium ceiling which lets in lots of lights on long evenings. Crammed shelves and cabinets house some of her grandmother's collections of vases, mugs and other objects, her mother's collection of Illy coffee cups and saucers, and some of her own bits and pieces picked up while travelling.Walls display a variety of work from local artists. Art exhibitions here change monthly. Other special events and film nights throughout the year.

Joleen's brother Denis Cronin is Head Chef at Mad Fish. His cooking is presented in up beat style, and with the very best of everything local. Seafood is at the heart of the mains menu. There's always a meat dish. Beef comes from craft butcher Tom Durcan, whose ten or twelve ounce striploin steak is cut from the whole side of beef, dry aged in the traditional way for at least 48 days. His Traditional Cork Spiced Beef appears on the menu in a Carpaccio style dish as an appetising starter course. Sunday Lunch here is a real treat.

Full bar service in the lounge, and a substantial wine list in the restaurant. It travels through France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, New Zealand and Oz, and has a selection of well priced champagnes and other bubbles too. A table seating area to the rear of the bar is also popular to enjoy the Mad Fish menu for guests who want to be close to the action of this busy and lively local pub.
