“Perfect meal... perfect night!”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

One Saturday night before a night in the theater me and my boyfriend went to the Munster bar for a pre theater meal and drink. All I can say is that we will definitely be doing this again and recommending it to friends! We booked a table for 5.30, we went into the bar for a two drinks as we were early.. where we received beautiful wine served by a lovely helpful woman. After our drink we walked upstairs to the beautiful warm restaurant where we got a beautiful tasty meal for an amazing price! It was busy and yet we were still on time for the show and had wonderful table service! A perfect night and a perfect meal!

“Lovely bar, good service and the best chowder in Ireland.”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Lovely bar, good service and the best chowder in Ireland (so far).
I have long reckoned that the best chowder I've enjoyed was to be had at the Moorings Bar next to Dungarvan Castle in West Waterford. However I have to say The Munster Bar has put it up to the best - and because of the lack of flour (to any discernible degree) I found the mélange lighter and though not as "meaty" as the Moorings offering - it was most satisfying.
My wife at first did not concur but eventually (by the end of the substantial bowl) gave The Munster Bar 1/2 point more that the Moorings - in fairness no other comes close.

“Lively and enviting”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We wandered into The Munster Bar/Restaurant before we toured the Waterford showroom, right across the street. The food was delicious - seafood chowder and brie and watercress sandwiches were delicious. The atmosphere was full of theatre lore, as there is a theatre here as well. The Irish coffee was also delicious. I would highly recommend this place and hope to visit again.
