Most shops and restaurants were closed because of a holiday. We came in at 7:45 pm and had 15 minutes before the kitchen closed, but with the bank holiday I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the timing. Chairs were low and a bit wobbly but despite the dim pub atmosphere the food was worth it. Burger... More

Believe it or not, this Pub had the best meal we had in the whole of Ireland! The service was exceptional, and the food was stunning. I had Chicken Curry that was better than what I have had in London, or Bangalore India. My wife had fresh salmon, with mash and it was cooked to perfection.

Very average, note this is a pub. People go out smelling nice while you are eating your fish and chips. Lets put it this way, its like you are on a table drinking cocktails and the table beside you are eating a burger with chips. No separating walls... This used to be a nice pub. Now it is expensive and... More

My favourite spot for food and drink in Waterford. Really nice varied menu (the shoestring potatoes are the best) and the music is always good. Really relaxed bar and good selection of drinks. Perfect food and drinks with a group of friends.

We spoke to several locals before deciding on a place for dinner, and all signs pointed to Geoff's. We were not disappointed! The atmosphere was incredible, and the food was simply delicious. The bar tending and wait staff were among the best my family and I experienced on our vacation. You can't go wrong with anything you get on this... More

Popped in before and after a meal in town on a Friday night. A busy spot, but with plenty of room to comfortably accommodate everyone. Popular for food too. Service was quick, and a nice atmosphere overall.

She had the haddock and I had the quiche of the day, we were both delighted with our food and the lovely atmosphere. We both love the decor and mismatched furniture the whole vintage style is amazing and we love... More
