“Good value lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Very recently opened opposite Waterford Crystal and behind Christ Church Cathedral.

Very good value and excellent quality food. Fast and good service. fully recommended. Parking a problem as it is in Waterford with demon parking attendants giving tickets like confetti is the only downside

“Delicious, well presented lunch in a wonderful historic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

We were a group of 30 people who visited the Bishop's Palace Cafe in Waterford for lunch during a tour of the city. We couldn't have picked a better venue. It's bright, airy with a wonderful ambience because of its location in the former Bishop's Palace directly opposite the new Waterford Crystal show rooms in the centre of time. There is very good parking close by directly behind the Waterford Crystal Centre.

The group were fullsome in their praise of our meal. I chose the Dunmore Fish Cakes with salad and french fries followed by chocolate cake which were all incredibly good. Others had quiche or chicken and some had a smoked salmon dish.

We were extremely late arriving at the cafe and then arrived in a piecemeal fashion rather than all at once which would be a major challenge for any restaurant. In spite of this, the food was superb and the staff were extremely accommodating. They gave us a warm welcome which was to be commended. We will definitely go back and recommend it highly to others. If you are looking for something a little bit different with character, this is the place for you. There is plenty of space in the restaurant so you don't feel that you are jammed up against the next person.
