Iconic

Loved the atmosphere and the aroma (beeswax according to other half) Very friendly - Glad i found it, and if i lived in Waterford, would make it my local watering hole and visitor attraction.Never experienced anything quite like it myself and made it highlight of stay in the town!

If in doubt we always end up in Geoffs bar, during the day after shopping for a big lunch or in the evening for dinner & drinks

I have eaten in Geoff's with my husband and with my whole family several times and have never been disappointed. The food is imaginative and of good quality and presentation. I love the building and different sections too. Art work and decor most interesting and just all around great place to eat lunch or dinner.

Geoff's bar is an institution in Waterford City young and older people mix comfortably. The food here is mid range but very good a great place to visit to meet Waterford people of all generations. The pint of the black stuff is highly recommended.

The rice was fragrant and the meal well presented and piping hot. Tasted very good and was very happy. My wife had the haddock goujons which was nice but... More

Don't get me wrong I LOVE Geoffs as a pub, going out with friends and sampling the fantastic range of beers available at the bar but for somewhere that see'd itself as a restaurant, you really need to move on in the industry. As previous comments have stated you need to bring in highchairs for families. You also need to... More
