Went for an early bird. Place was full. Seated and served very quickly. Food was lovely and kids were offered veg with their dinner which was good. Would go again. It's probably best to book for an early bird sitting.

Had a very nice meal in Halloween night. The restaurant was buzzing - staff very efficient and friendly. Food arrived promptly and was very tasty through all three courses. We will go again!

We just walked in as we were touring town on foot and made reservations...and when we returned that evening, Kevin remembered my husband's name. Impressive. Kevin and our waitress Marianna... More

Have visited a good few times since it opened and always enjoyed, but I've been twice in the last month and in my opinion standards are slipping.

One of my favorite restaurants in Waterford. There is a very laid back but professional atmosphere in the restaurant and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food is also delicious.
