“BEST IN WATERFORD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We had to go back the second time to sample the great value tasting menu.
The 5 courses and accompanying wines/ drinks were top class and must be tasted to really appreciate good quality / value.
Well trained friendly staff complement the total experience.

“La Palma”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

This has to be not only the best food but the best value in Waterford. The tasting menu consisting of four delicious courses each accompanied by an appropriate drink at the unbelievable cost of 55 euro for two people. Lovely waiting staff and amazing food - well done to the Cavalieri family!

“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

I was down in Waterford for a few days & decided to buy a voucher for the tasting menu. I was very impressed with not only the fantastic food, but the service too. The waiters where extremely helpful and very friendly. We had the Beetroot & goats cheese salad followed by the butternut squash risotto pared with Prosecco & a lovely white wine, then a sorbet to clear the palate. The next course was pork belly with a Montepulciano wine & desert was a very tasty Panna cotta. The quality of the food was fantastic, very fresh and very tasty. It was a real treat! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone popping down to Waterford for a weekend or a couple of days! Well worth a visit & I will be back here.

“fab food.... top class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Had the tasting menu last night in this restaurant. Consisted of 5 courses with wine for each course. As it was tasting menu, we expected small portions of food & drink but we were pleasantly surprised. Portions were very generous and food was so tasty.. Wine well selected to suit the course. Staff were so pleasant & friendly... Overall experience was fabulous. Highly recommend this!!
