The Old Couch Café Reviews

  • Stunning food but the most impressive part is the space and atmosphere in the restaurant. It’s small but the tables are large and they give space to the diners to enjoy their meals in peace. It’s surprisingly effective and enhances the exceptional food and drinks on offer. Strong recommendation.

  • 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 phenomenal dining experience. Each dish was a perfect blend of traditional Spanish flavors and modern culinary techniques, beautifully presented and bursting with taste. The attention to detail and creativity of the chefs truly shined through every course. The ambiance was warm and inviting, and the service was impeccable, with knowledgeable staff who enhanced the experience with their insights into each dish. If you're looking for an unforgettable gastronomic adventure, this place is an absolute must-visit!

  • 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.
