“Best Early Bird Value in Waterford”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Had an excellent visit to L'Atmosphere during the week after Christmas for an early bird.

The menu is very good - with a lot of options with various specials of the day - so the exact same menu wouldn't be occuring every day.

The mulled wine at the start was a perfect tonic to the cold and miserable weather outside. Selection of breads, Starter, Main, Dessert and a glass of wine all came to 20euro!! And the food was delicious. We couldn't believe we paid only that amount of money for such great quality food.

I would definately recommend this place to everyone.

“Comfort food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

On a cold frosty night you just can't beat latmosphere for the food atmosphere and genres ambience.
One caveat I would add they need to add a porch to keep the cold air out.

“Faultless.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

We drive down from Cork, booked into a local hotel, JUST to celebrate my partner's birthday in this amazing restaurant. It was absolutely wonderful. The bouillabaisse was definitely the highlight but indeed, e wry thing else was parfait too! Our waitress, Marine, brings so much flair to the dining experience. She was just terrific. Outstanding value and all round brilliant experience once again. Merci!!

“A small, busy and good french restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Just what the doctor ordered! Good food, modest portions, tasty wine and I was having French withdrawal before L'Atmosphere. It wasn't great. But on the coast of Ireland, it was a welcome meal with warm and professional service.

“Mixed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Went for the first time last night Monday as most restaurants closed and as it was a birthday we wanted to celebrate with a nice meal. We arrived at 7pm and found a table without any trouble. Menus were provided and wine list. A very nice red wine was selected and enjoyed with the meal. I opted for the tasting plate which was most interesting and enjoyable my companions making their own selections. I then selected the french classic beef bourguignon served with potatoes and vegetables but top heavy on beef and lacking in vegetables. I have to say that the beef was very tender but I did not care for the gravy/stock as it was too thick and over seasoned. For dessert I had a very delicious creme brûlée. My companions enjoyed their meal choices but later I developed severe indigestion which lasted all night. I was a little disappointed personally as the reviews are excellent and it being an award winning restaurant. I can only think that I picked an off night. I will try it again in the hope that next time around I will have a better evening.
