In the heart of Waterford City is a restaurant that champions the local food experience. From the beginning, we have strived to offer the best of local produce where possible, to give value for money, to have fun, to provide great food and drinks & to have relaxed customers who can really let themselves go!!

Waterford is a hotbed for fresh, world class quality local produce from farmer to fisherman. The finest seafood & shellfish from Dunmore East, Kilmore Quay & Castletownbere, to the most succulent of local beef or organic pork from The Comeragh Mountains, "Free range" chicken from Wexford, and the famous "Blaa" from an artisan baker 500 metres away!
With a Local Tramore man in the Kitchen, Malcolm Starmer , cooking up a storm, and restaurant manager Aneta, in charge of front of house, we can provide you with an experience to remember!

Lovely ambiance, setting, and decor. Food was delicious! I had the bacalao appetizer and the couscous for dinner. The appetizer was flaky and well season. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The main course was a wonderful blend of interesting and mouth watering flavor. Unique and memorable!

Food was good, servers were very friendly and pleasant. Liked the decor. However it was a very cold night and we were quite cold, partly because of people coming in and out the door but also poor heating. Toilet area was frigid cold.

Very pleasant atmosphere, attentive staff, good food. The only minus - in terms of noise, the place is a bit loud for some reason, had to lean in to have a conversation at times. Overall, a good experience.

Fantastic burger. Decent service. Good wine list. Fresh bread to start. A bit of olive oil on all tables would be good.

We usually come for dinner here. The lunch time around Christmas was noisier than usual and not as relaxing as the evenings. Over all the food was good as always. Just too busy and rushed for our taste.

Excellent restaurant with exceptional customer services. Somewhat limited menu if you tend to be a bit fussy but should be something for everyone. Good value for money based on the quality of food, sides and veg etc could be more especially if they are to be shared between 2 or more. Overall highly recommended.

Came back a second time when visiting Waterford.
Everything was excellent once again. Had the liver pate which was smooth and slightly sweet. Sirloin was done just right. My dining mates also enjoyed their roast chicken and filet mignon. Desserts were a great finishing touch. Recommended brownie with ice cream was fantastic. Will make this a recurring spot each time we're in Waterford.
