It's a small restaurant but it packs a big punch. Great food, really tasty and good value too. Service was good also. I'd certainly recommend it.

As soon as I entered I was happy becaue of the essence of the restaurant. Kind servers, warm spices, and food that makes your taste buds stand on edge. Food was bright, affortable, seasoned well. They let you bring in wine with a cork charge (always nice).

Food is fantastic, never had any problem with service. Love the buzz in the place. Tables can be a bit cramped. Great value for money. Owner is very friendly and more often than not a complimentary drink arrives on the table. Love the place so much I drive an hour to eat there.

Have been here many times and have never been disappointed. Food is really tasty with a varied selection. It's small so this, combined with the open kitchen, makes it feel like there's always a bit of a buzz there. It's not the cheapest restaurant in the world but is not expensive either and is worth the money.

Visited this small restaurant when the Tall Ships came to Waterford. It was bustling and busy. The staff were friendly and the food good and authentic - memories of a misspent few years in London came flooding back. Good service Will visit again. Always looks busy from the car when I pass it
