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

La Boheme is a fantastic place to go for a stylish dinner. Stunning old world setting that will make you feel like a gem but won't cost you one.

I wholly recommend this restaurant. My wife and I visited in May 2014 during a 4 night stay in Ireland and we came across La Boheme on the web. The reviews were very favourable so we booked for the Friday evening and chose the fixed price 35 euro menu for three courses. We were not disappointed - the food was... More

We ate here on Sunday 20/04/2014 (Easter Sunday). The restaurant was quiet. The quality of the plates varied - the Fish Mouse, Black Sole and Desert Plate were very good, not quite so the goats cheese terrine and the cheese. In general the service was very attentive. The wine list is varied and reasonably priced. The setting is charming. Our... More

I revisited La Boheme last week. We opted for the "early bird" menu at €29 which was very well priced. This time I was among a very large group of friends. The service was excellent and efficient. The menu was varied and the waiter was very knowledgeable as to gluten free options.
