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.

There was a large party in the night we were in and this didn't hinder the excellent service. The food was very good and the atmosphere buoyant. Would recommend to anyone eating out In Waterford.

Dear Hassan E. Thanks for the lovely review on Tripadvisor. To use such words as "absolute perfection" when speaking about the food quality in La Boheme warms our bones. We source as much as we can on our doorstep, sometimes traveling to small farms to collect our produce and the end result is great food, with fabulous taste and flavour.... More

I've ate here on a few occasions and always leave wondering "what's all the hype about here" for the money it's not good value. Dont get me wrong, we all finished our plates and it was lovely (starter, dinner, Desert) but it's missing that edge that you'd expect from a 5 star restaurant.

Dear Keith, What I find hard to fathom is that the review just previous to yours was left by a businessman who brought in two Swiss guests who were very impressed by not only the food, but the ambience and also the service they received in La Boheme. They obviously "get it". Sometimes the hype in a restaurant is understated... More
