Having read so many good reviews i had to try Harlequin. 1st impression will not encourage you, small, with tables close to each other and a bit dark. Seats about 30. But when the food arrives you soon forget about the surroundings. The food is excellent as well as the wine. Menu selection is not huge, but there is enough... More

I've eaten here several times and as someone who visits Italy regularly also I consider this one of the best examples of real Italian cooking I've found in Ireland. Great food in a relaxed atmosphere.

Harlequin is a lovely little restaurant. My friend and I ate there recently and were helped with selecting our meal on the menu which was very nice. Not a large selection but this helps as sometimes there is just too much choice. Will go back.

This is without a doubt the nicest place to eat in Waterford. Going by the reviews on here I would say there is a mistake that it is not in the top 5 places to eat. Food is always amazing and the staff are so friendly. Yes the menu is small but I always ask for the special and im... More

Very accommodating waiter......ordered antipasti but wanted a mixture of different ones and that's exactly what we got. Pasta was delicious and tasted fresh, fresh food is always worth the wait, can't wait to go back.

I adore this restaurant! Staff friendly, lovely relaxed atmosphere, nice wine list and the best Italian food you will find. We always get the same thing, selection of cheeses, bruschetta and bread and dips. The smoked cheese and Parma dish is fabulous too. Highly advise you book early for the weekend. Couldn't recommend this restaurant enough - great location, atmosphere,... More
