  • 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!!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!
