Had heard good things about this place but was very disappointed with it. Decor is shabby without the chic. Just looked like not much effort put into getting it right.

We dined here on a one night stop to Waterford based on other reviews and the restaurant did not disappoint. We each had the €20 3-course meal and it was delicious and filling. Great atmosphere. Friendly and attentive staff. Most likely need a reservation. Highly recommend.

The service was excellent, with attentive and knowledgeable staff. My starter of pate was good, a light fluffy texture served with ample toasted bread. My main course was wonderful.... More

Went here with my family for a birthday celebration and it was excellent. Authentic, tasteful food which is presented expertly. Would highly recommend to friends and couples. A bit of something for everyone. A but pricey but understandable given the quality of the food.

I would drive to Waterford just to eat here. Beautiful, unusual fare in luxurious surroundings. It's a tiny bistro-style restaurant on a little side street off the main street of the city, and by the time you leave you've forgotten you're not in Paris.

Thank Kathy D
