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

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

This restaurant never fails to deliver a truly memorable visit and meal. It is such a lovely setting for a relaxed evening meal. The variety and quality of the food is always first class and not too expensive. The staff are attentive without being intrusive. Ideally located within walking of a number of hotels it obviates the need for a... 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!!

The décor was quaint, but also chic and elegant. Everything they did and served was top-notch: great cocktails, delicious main courses, and exquisite desserts. The service was friendly and attentive. When in Waterford, don't miss this intriguing restaurant
