La Bohème Restaurant is housed in the vaults of the Georgian ‘Port of Waterford’ building – an historic property which has been associated with the local Chamber of Commerce for many years.Proprietors Christine and Eric Théze have patiently restored this magnificent space to create an inviting and intimate atmosphere. Its original flagstone floors, limewashed walls and vaulted ceilings are unique and particular to Waterford. The design of the restaurant is sympathetic to the architecture of the building, with influences of New Baroque. The restaurant combines ornate antiques and decoration with modern touches creating an eclectic, decadent interior.La Bohème is a restaurant where the pleasures of the table are in accord with the décor, blending modern delicacies with recipes passed down from generation to generation. Enjoy an aperitif at our beautiful pewter bar while perusing the menu and whetting your appetite.‘Here at La Bohème we pride ourselves in going the extra mile to give our customers a dining experience beyond comparison’

Me and my partner ate here on a saturday night. A really beautiful restaurant with a well read menu but the food did not live up to expectation. My starter of pork belly was tasty but my chicken main was dry with no flavour, the pancetta was soft, soggy and grey. The side portion of veg & potato was overcooked... More

Dear Eillis D. Whilst we very much appreciate customer feedback positive and negative, its review’s that are totally disproportioned to reality that we find hard to accept. And lately we also have to get used to a new phenomenon, and that is customers posting exaggerated negative viewpoints of their dining experiences. As you pointed out, this is your first review...

Beautiful surroundings and traditional classical french cuisine — what more could you want? The pricing is probably on par for what you would expect to pay in an establishment like this but it adds up quickly so go easy on the desserts and that second bottle of wine! The staff seemed a little bit inexperienced this time or was it... More

Our food was of a high standard accompanied by equally good service. We had the early bird menu which proved to be lovely. Cheeseboard offered artisan French cheeses. We would recommend this restaurant to discerning diners.

As soon as you go down the stairs and into the restaurant it's like being transported somewhere different. The atmosphere is really lovely. Overall we had a very special evening but with a couple of minor issues. The staff were so attentive I think there was someone at our table every five minutes to check something. It was disconcerting for... More

Had a babysitter for the kids, so wanted to treat ourselves to a nice meal. The food in La Boheme was pretty good, until my wife found herself chewing on a piece of plastic that was in her steak. We let our waitress know, so the kitchen could know there was a potential choking hazard in their food. We got... More

Food excellent, staff extremely professional. Comfortable, warm and friendly. For the price, I would recommend La Boheme. The best restaurant in Ireland that I have been in so far (most are terrible). Trust me, I do complain to the management if its not right before commenting here.
