  • Wow, what an experience! First time going under the new ownership of Luis Martin - who has kept the Old Couch alive in Waterford. Would definitely recommend - a great experience with the 10 course tasting menu. You have the table for the whole night with really attentive service. What a gem for Waterford. Some incredible food & wonderful team. Can't wait to book in again with friends!!

  • Absolutely fantastic, every course and the whole experience tailered to perfection. An absolute delight in evey sense. My stomach can be a bit sensitive but left here feeling the best.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!!
