I dined at Captain America's, Cork, on the 14th of February and my overall experience was good. However, I have one complaint to make. I have severe food allergies (to nuts, eggs and fish) and made these allergies aware to the waitress that took our order, who was very professional and dealt with this situation very well, this critic is no reflection of her service. I asked for a sharing starter of nachos and I then asked for the margarita pizza, which according to your allergn booklet, only contained gluten and milk. I was then informed, after having my order taken and had been in the restaurant for about 20 minutes, that the margarita pizza actually contained egg and had a trace of nuts. None of this was stated in your allergn booklet. I am very lucky that I asked the waitress, which again this is no reflection on her, she was excellent, to just let the kitchen know that I had these allergies in general and that the kitchen were incredibly thorough in their practises, because I could have been served a pizza containing egg, without knowing that it contained egg and would have gone into anaphylactic shock. I generally don't leave reviews or negative criticisms for any restaurant and I did genuinely enjoy my time in captain Americas, however it is just so important that these allergn booklets are up to date, as it could cost someone like me their lives. I checked multiple times that this pizza was okay for me to eat and according to your booklet, it was. I would just like to ask that you update your allergn booklets as soon as any changes come to your menu, it is so incredibly important for someone like me to have that peace of mind when dining out. Overall, my experience was lovely, but had I not made light of my allergies to the waitresses or kitchen staff, it might have ended terribly. Please just keep all allergn information updated. Thank you.

It was my first time in captain americas in years. We thought it would be a great place to take the kids for a 7th birthday. They live superhero’s... the staff were lovely. Very pleasant young people. The food was nice, not great. The prices were a bit on the high side for ok food. The interior needs to be redone badly. All woodwork needs repainting. The tatt needs to taken off the wall. Outdated sports people and bands that most young people prob never heard of. Can’t understand why they don’t capitalize on the name and do a superhero theme?! I dunno maybe it’s a copyright issue but it makes total sense. Kids & teens would love it especially. Regardless of the theme. The place needs a good spring cleaning!!!! My fajita was nice but I probably could make a nice one at home. Adults all happy enough... kids disappointed

The food there is amazing and prices are low, but service takes too long, the food comes quickly enough but if you need a waiter for anything they’re usually not around.

Very good place , very comfortable. Took awhile to have our order taken. Food was okay , I had a plain burger with chips and a coke. Cost me €14 for that with a 20% student discount . Bit expensive for the meal but was still lovely :) had to ask a second time for a drink after ordering it earlier but to be fair they were up the walls due to jazz weekend

We really enjoyed the evening and would surely recommend to anyone. I would thou inform them of the 10% gratuity fee before they order, or at least before they pay. As this was a surprise to me and as the fee was almost €40 I think it is steep on a single paying customer.

Everyone did though live your restaurant and are looking forward to the next visit.

Hi AldrinO, I'm delighted to see you all enjoyed your evening and that you would recommend us to others. I do apologise that you were not informed of a gratuity fee on the night in question. OpenTable is a new platform we are in partnership with and we were unaware that the 10% charge is not highlighted when a large booking is made. Thank you for the feedback and we will be in touch with OpenTable to rectify the issue raised. Look forward to having you back into us again soon. Regards, Dave

Captain Americas was great. We were lucky it was quiet as they had no record of our booking from this site but we were still able to get a table. They said it is usually phone bookings. I would have been mad if they did not have space after booking as it was for a birthday.
