Booked here for a low key hen on one of the busiest days of the year (22nd Dec) with 17 people. The staff were extremely nice and couldn't have done more for us. Our food was amazing and very priced. I was told on the phone when booking that we had roughly a 2hr slot because it was so busy. None of us felt pushed out or rushed with our meal and drinks and we were there over the 2hrs. I would def book here again for a large group. See More

Left waiting over 30mins for table despite an advance booking made over a week prior.

Poor food ( starter of mussels was ok, main of pulled pork burger was disgusting with lettuce that was rotten a...nd tainted the rest of the burger)

Service was disgraceful, I returned my main to be told there was nothing wrong with it, despite myself and my fellow diners seeing it, I was offered that the burger be replated, having being TOLD by the waitress "the chef said its fine" But wasn't offered a replacement until my fellow diners had finished their main courses. We weren't charged the €13 the cost of my main on the final bill but our table of 14 was unanimous that returning wouldn't be a first choice by any of us. And I certainly wouldn't recommend this place!

Great valentine's day. Food was great. Mushroom and cream sauce was perfect and mashed spud had a great flavour. Pan-fried chicken was cooked to perfection, soft, and an assortment of starters and des...serts was well received. Garlic mushrooms were unique and very flavorful. Service was excellent and the missus was very happy so a great valentines all over. Thanks Espresso See More

The meal was ok-the garlicky shrooms are described as including a salad but there wasn't one included. I had the Pollo Romano which was nice-but no veg included with the meal. Desert was lovely. The s...ervice was poor-we weren't asked if we wanted additional drinks and we're left sitting at the table for an hour after we were done eating without a check in by our server and we had to ask for the bill. In addition, my friend had requested an order of chips with her meal-which she didn't get but was charged for. Definitely not the best experience for my first visit and on my hols from Canada.

Claudio's time had arrived! Don't forget to donate TXT MND to 50300
A few years ago, when Facebook was just getting going, we were all over it and we were in the top ten restaurants using Facebook in Ireland. We loved hearing from our customers every day and we loved bringing new competitions and promos each week. Somewhere along the line we slowed down and we're sorry for that. In our defence, we put all that energy into producing a menu that we are so proud of today...but now we want to do both again. Expect some brilliant promotions and offers and expect more of this kind of stuff. We're back y'all! I give you...Claudio taking the Komodo Dragon Chilli Challenge!
Our beautiful fish of the day this weekend going down a treat being plated by @darrenp156. Why not come down and give it a try open tomorrow from 1pm to 9pm. #waterford #fresh #waterfordharvestfestival #goodfood

OVERHEARD in our kitchen this morning.

"What day is today?"
"I'm almost certain it's not."...
"Oh...Is it Monday so... Bank Holiday Monday?!"
"No...apparently we're observing St Patrick's Day."
"I observed someone puking up a green liquid outside the restaurant on Saturday...was that not St Patrick's Day?"
"Yes. But...everyone was off work on Saturday so we didn't get a chance to have a proper day off work."
"Ah...I we're all off work today then?"
"No...we're opening at 5."
