Faultless Experience

Went for dinner here last week and really can't say enough good things about the place. The atmosphere, decor and staff were all very warm and welcoming. All the plates of food we had were absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. Will definitely be returning to the Copper Hen again and again... read more

On a day trip today we had given up finding somewhere to eat on the Copper Coast when 3 hungry children and their parents came across The Copper Hen and we were very pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent, great value, lovely decor and atmosphere. Waitresses very welcoming, pleasant and service very good. Super playground around the corner and many beaches... More

We were travelling around Waterford and my mother need to use toilet facilities and prior to having a meal. Two of our party went first my husband and mother - they asked the location of the toilets and they were refused entry to the toilets... I was very shocked and needless to say the rest of our party would not... More

Thanks for your views on our treatment of the public, but I must add that we are a restaurant and not public toilets, I remember answering the door when your husband and mother called it was 2.30ish on Saturday 3rd what I don't understand is it that you said in your review is "prior to eating there" we don't open...

Went here for a family dinner celebration. First time dinning at this restaurant and was please with the food, tasted delicious and was presented very well. A lot of the sauce on the menu contains wine, which I'm not a massive fan of so there wasn't a great variety for choosing menu items, however I did chose my starter which... More

Well done lovely decorated restaurant, great to see a restaurant sourcing so many of its ingredients locally, the taste and combination of flavours shows the chef is on top of his game. I had the cod dish with spring onion polenta, beautifully cooked, the vegetables were different beets with courgettes I would return for them alone.

Consistantly good meals in this restaurant. The flavour of the food is just exceptional. Evening menu is exceptionally good value and friently, professional staff. Although a bit out of the way out in Fenor, well worth the drive out there. You will not be disappointed!!!

Lovely restaurant with great food and nightly specials. Seafood is excellent and presentation of food makes for a lovely meal. Only gripe was that on the night in question it was too hot and there wasn't air conditioning . . . or even a breeze. Maybe a couple of fans would help.

We enjoyed a lovely meal Saturday August 23rd and were treated well despite turning up on one of their busiest nights as Tramore races were on. The food is very nice, with a relatively small selection, but what they do, they do very well. I'm looking forward to heading back on a night when they are not so busy. Very... More
