My first proper dining experience at Nando's was pretty sweet! The big steps to get into the restaurant were a bit of a challenge for Daddy, but he managed!

Mummy noticed there's a nice bookcase with books for children and even though I'm still a baby who can't read (writing reviews is no problem, I know...), I'm looking forward to coming back when I can!

I did enjoy my chicken fillets and the sweet potato chunks, but the broccoli wasn't such a hit for some reason.

I've been a bit spoiled for Nando's in new countries these last few months, though my expectations weren't particularly high for Nando's in Ireland. Why? Well I'd heard it was basically the same as the UK (same management), but with higher prices!

Easter Monday signalled the end of a four-day food feast in Ireland, with the final stop none other than Cork's newest and Ireland's biggest Nando's on Academy Street. Having visited Mahon Point last year, I am in a good position to compare the two restaurants. Mahon Point wins in terms of accessibility (free parking), while Academy St was a bit of a struggle and we ended up in a multi-storey car park at €2 per hour.
