We dined here yesterday evening. The restaurant is lovely and cosy , with a nice atmosphere. We chose the early bird menu , which at 20 euros is great value for three courses and also includes tea or coffee. We had a lovely meal. Starters of French onion soup and Goat's cheese mousse, both of which were really delicious. Our... More

What seemed clear to me as I ate my three course meal at L'Atmosphere was that I was eating food made of some really quality ingredients. Everything seasoned just enough to make the main ingredient shine through and wasn't overpowered by any added flavours. Our fish mains were near faultless and our desserts were quite nice. Maybe I could say... More

Excellent food in a cute, small restaurant. Tables alittle close. Had the scallop appetizer and it was fantastic. Duck as a main course. Creme brulee for dessert. All very good.

Nearest taste of a true French bistro I've experienced at this price range. Classic dishes available on the 3 course menu for 20 euro. Unbelievable taste and Value! If possible, I'd recommend pushing the boat to the 35 euro menu. The mixed starter slate and cassoulet are to die for. Decent French wine is provided at a very reasonable price.... More

Myself and my husband have just spent a fabulous weekend in Waterford. We went to LAtmosphere on the advice of Trip Advisor Reviews. We were very glad we did. We had a fabulous three course meal, one course better than the other, but all delicious. The Staff were so friendly and all very cheerful and happy that it is obviously... More

The early bird menu is excellent value. I asked for the escargot from the a la carte and the waiter needed to ask the chef but it was allowed! and it was delicious! The duck confit was also very very good. Very nice old building with high ceilings and stone walls, plenty of atmosphere, nice accommodating friendly staff, and good... More

Went to L'Atmosphere for the first time last Friday evening and ate from the early bird menu. The food was really tasty, beautifully simple and the perfect quantity for a 3 course menu. The service was excellent and friendly. The value for money is as good as I've had anywhere, €20 for 3 courses, incredible for this quality. Look forward... More

L'Atmosphere never ever fails to deliver. The value is second to none. The quality of ingredients is amazing and the food is some of the best rustic French I have ever tasted... Every time. It is a very casual restaurant but there is nothing casual about the quality of cooking. I have yet to ever visit a more consistant restaurant... More
