After hearing mixed views we decided to try for ourselves. Very very disapointed. Food poor at best with salt ruining the seafood starter and a main course of duck being totally ruined by the amount of salt in the dish. The lamb was also somehow infused with salt salt and more salt. I cannot describe just how salty it was... More

We were walking around Waterford and came across La Boheme which from the outside gave a feeling it would be down some stairs to a smallish, darkly lit room. How wrong! The stairs lead to a well-lit, stylish, intimate but not claustrophobic restaurant which served us 2 courses of extremely tasty food. The service was attentive but not obtrusive. They... More

Dear Tomper, It is frustrating that from the outside, most new customers to La Boheme think it will be small and dark as you have discovered, we are anything but. We are delighted you ventured down and that we made you feel welcome, sailing shorts and all. Our dress code is casual and the most important is that our customers... More

Wow ! What a find. Not many top class restaurants in Waterford but this fits the bill ! Hadn't booked but luckily as it was midweek that was not a problem. Waitress was knowledgeable, efficient and unobtrusive as we enjoyed a wonderful three course dinner for 35 euros. Wine was superb and overall ambience was superb. Cannot recommend it highly... More

We thought La Boheme was a beautiful setting and we had a wonderful meal in such nice surroundings. The service was attentive but not intrusive in our opinion, and we were offered water and extra bread several times. We felt that the food was good value as we took advantage of the early bird menu. My starter of smoked salmon... More

Well, what can I say? Fabulous top draw cooking! Not cheap but very worth while for that special occasion. I had the most amazing carrot and orange soup, delicious roast lamb and finished with scrummy creme brûlée. What's not to absolutely love!!
