The Old Couch Café Reviews

  • Excellent atmosphere and top quality food! Totally recommended if you come to Waterford. The experience is unique and the menu brings an interesting fusion of different cuisines. Everything from the decoration, the wine pairings, and the overall homely feeling, make this place a hidden gem!

  • The excellent concept of a 10 course tasting menu makes for an evening of pure culinary enjoyment! Each dish is predominantly locally sourced and beautifully executed and presented to the highest standard! The staff are really friendly and each dish served is described in detail on presentation at the table. The charming, enthusiastic propreitess/waitress is also the pastry chef and the poppy seed ice cream with Valrhona manjari and raspberries soaked in Kinsale hazy summer mead was one of the best desserts I have ever tasted! I wish this young team every success in building a fine reputation in the future, they truly deserve it!!

  • Excellent service, tasty and creative food. Definitely worth the visit. It's also very reasonably priced for the amount of food you get. My favourite must have been scallops and various breads at the start. I think venison I got was a bit overcooked and the same for pork, but that could just be my personal preference. The wine pairings we got were excellent and I can't wait to come again.

  • Honestly probably one of THE BEST places you can eat in Waterford! I have eaten in places that are rated as a "Michelin Star" and leave very disappointed - This is BETTER than any Michelin restaurant I have eaten in - The feeling of being relaxed and enjoying the food and the night is what stood out to me and I was there with my partner for my 40th Birthday for at least 3hrs - and honestly it felt like 1hr as we had the most exquistie food. The chef and pastry chef, the owners are seriously onto a Winner with everything here!

  • Perfection! Simply no other words can describe this place. From the moment you arrive you are greeted by name. We went for the ten course menu and let me tell you.....there was nothing we didn't like. At one stage we were using our fingers to mop up the last bits of sauce left in the bowls. We adore the old couch and it won't be a year before we return! The standard and love and care that goes into each course is just tremendous! They are the ultimate powerhouse when it comes to flavour!
