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.

Eat here when I'm looking for something quite. Food is usually good. They do a fantastic vegetable soup. Service and setting is good. The main plus is the casserole dishes. Lamb, beef, chicken, tried all of them and on a cold winter night they are absolutely delicious.

We visited the restaurant on Sunday evening. The food and service was good and it certainly had a french influence. The serving staff were both friendly and efficient. The fish and seafood wasn't the best I've had but it was still good.

Someone down at Waterford Crystal indicated that this might be a restaurant to suit us and they were spot on. The tasteful décor, the soft background music and the French staff made for a memorable meal. We started with chicken vol-a-vent which was a feast for the taste buds and then proceeded to fish pie (which doesn't have a lid... More

Think classic French food: cassoulet, duck, mousse au chocolat. Not terribly inventive, but you don't need to be inventive when you are doing the classics well.
