Arriving late in Waterford on a Monday evening after a long day driving, we were tired, hungry and irritable. With no knowledge of the city we drove around trying to find somewhere for dinner when quite by accident, in a backstreet terrace,we stumbled upon Harequin. It was simply the best Italian food we have eaten outside of Italy. This was... More

I visited harlequin for the first time last night with my partner. We both love Italian foods so we were excited to try something new.

They were so tasty... More

Visited almost three weeks ago, 29th March 2016. Bought some coupons, 2 meals & 2 entree for a certain price. Interior fits the bar look and there are pokies as well as a pool table at the back. It is quite a large premise. Very laid back and easy going place, nothing fancy. Meals were great, had the pork ribs... More

What this place lacks in fancy decor and gushing staff... It completely makes up for in the food. It was some of the most authentic Italian grub that I've tasted outside of Italy! I had the special Smoked Salmon tagliatelle in white wine sauce... And my companions had the sausage pasta and the ravioli. All top notch. An excellent little... More
