We went here with some family who came down from Dublin. This restaurant never fails to impress. Beautiful ambient setting. Two of us had the risotto, one the salmon starter and one the goats cheese. The goats cheese was so very light in the filo pastry. the risotto was perfectly cooked and the salmon with the crab brulee really was... More

Very expensive and having eaten in several restaurants in Waterford I found the food here to be the same but at an extortionate price.

Good Evening mylnagh, With all the respect in the world, I am not certain you are reviewing the correct restaurant. Our food for the last 11 years has been described as delicious, inventive, caring and extremely good value for the quality on the plate. We only work with local suppliers and everything is made daily from scratch. Perhaps we were... More

I would not give 5stars for this place. Staff not nice at all. To many tables and very small room. Not the best place in Waterford at all.

Dear Karo L, We appreciate reviews, but when we check out the reviewer and see that a very large amount of their reviews are about chippers and take aways, we understand that perhaps you did not enjoy a fine dining experience. We have dedicated, passionate, professional staff, whom for the most part have been to hospitality management school. I am... More

Like a castle inside. Absolutely stunning. My first time this evening visiting LA boheme. The cauliflower soup was so tasty. Haddock special was good (I was taking a chance on it as I never eat haddock so how do I know what to expect) but the pea and mint puree and the little bits on the plate were fantastic too... More

Dear TonyHopkins2014, There is a small step into our main dining room and this is lit with a strip light to warn guests they are stepping down. With each and every guest that we lead into the main dining room, we stand by the step and let them know to mind their step. We feel this is more effective than... More

I had the lamb which came in a surprisingly large portion with delicious spiced veg. The staff were very attentive (and actually French) and the wines we had were very nice from the extensive menu they had on offer. Setting/ambiance was perfect as well. Would recommend to friends.

Lovely little french restaurant. The building itself is stunning, with exposed stone walls. The food is very good but i think it is a touch over-priced to be fair. Other than that, Very nice
