Really friendly staff welcomed us and our dogs. We had really good food in the oak panelled room, the only place in Waterford that would allow us to bring the dogs inside.

Our party of four thought we would have a wonderful dining experience here but that was not the case. The food was just average.

From the amuse-busche to the entre'.. I was disappointed. The amuse-busche tasted of weak tomato water, my lamb starter gamey, and the veal entree tough and difficult to eat. The service was OK, silverware not replaced when used and a little distant. On the other hand the smoked trout was very nice and the cod was perfectly prepared. Creme Carmel... More

The hotel is away from town, so we decided to eat at the restaurant. We didn't know anything about it or the award winning chef. We ate the prix fix and it was delicious. We only heard that Ireland had bad food, but this place is debunking that myth. As were most of the restaurants we went to in Ireland.

My husband and our 2 friends spent 10 days traveling through Southern Ireland, and I think the restaurant was the best of all we went to. It was a very relaxed atmosphere but at the same time very elegant. We all had something different, and each dish was very good.
