“Traditional Italian fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Three of us went for a late lunch recently having seen the excellent reviews on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The food is freshly made and it is an ideal place to go with a few friends. The menu isn't the biggest in the world but what they do they do very good. The restaurant is small and you are on top of the other diners and it would help to have more local service staff to accompany the Italian owner/chef but apart from that it is definitely worth a visit. 3 mains and 3 drinks came to €40.40, excellent value.

“a casual authentic italian experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

I love this little place. It has an authentic italian feel to it with service that is never less than efficient, welcoming and friendly. The antipasti are delicious and plentiful and the pasta dishes are always perfectly cooked and presented. However, the best thing about Harlequin is the atmosphere. Even on cold winter evenings, the ambience is always warm inside. It also has the best coffee in Waterford and is perfect for a quick stop-off for a true Italian style espresso or a glass of nice wine, of which there is a great selection. Seek it out....

“Cosy atmosphere excellent taste worth to see from miles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Excellent value, friendly stuff and we would love to have such a place in DUBLIN as well. We had roasted vegetables desperately which is normally served next to chicken. Reccomend you to ask it seperately

“Beautiful meal in lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

Had my first meal in Harlequin last night, had been meaning to go there for years after seeing the write up by Tom Dooley. It was a beautiful meal and the atmosphere was so relaxed and laid back. Im going to bookmark this place as my default restaurant and will defo be returning soon.
