“Great for Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We called to the Holy Cross for Lunch this week and once again we were not disappointed. I love eating here, the menu is varied, there is somthing for every taste. The food is always freshly cooked, the garlic potatoes are a must. For people with children or just out with a group of friends the value for money is second to none. You could not possible get a nicer lunch for ten euros per person. I could not cook this lovely dinner at home for that money. The chef who serves the carvery lunches actually listens to what you would like/want...very rare!! The staff are wonderful. If you are looking for a great tasting, good value lunch in Waterford do not pass the Holy Cross.

“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Went for breakfast with an friend and have to say we enjoyed a really excellent full Irish for a great price €7.50 for 2 sausages, 2 bacon, egg, black pudding, white pudding, beans, mushrooms, toast and brown bread, and large pot of coffee. Its a breakfast that will keep you going fro the day.The bar its self is large and warm with friendly staff too. Will stop here again

“Low quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I was very disappointed by my meal. The hamburger I ordered was dry and had an odd flavor, like they made hamburger patties out of excess meatloaf meat.
