We recently moved to Waterloo and, I pass every day in front of the restaurant by going home from work. After I read the advices left by a lot of TripAdvisors on this place, I told my wife: this is a place we have to...More

4 friends; we made our reservation through the on-line booking service. It worked with no issues. We all had steak "irlandaise" with different sauces. One needed the steak well-done, the rest of us medium. Two of us took desert (Dame Blanche). As said in the...More

We had lunch here while visiting the Waterloo sites. Part of what appealed to me when planning the trip was that the restaurant was away from the tourist centers so it should have a more local, more laid-back atmosphere without lots of tourists rushing things....More

Le Potential is welcoming, it's very pleasant but not what you'd call cosy, yet the food is outstanding. The chef is definitely in the 'hidden gem' category and his weekly specials are culinary masterpieces. The crusted cod was delicious. The service was again relaxed but...More

We had high expectations after reading the many very positive reviews. We found the interior of the restaurant very basic, same for the table decoration. Service was friendly and professional. Food was average, nothing special. Both of us got sick after eating at this place.

We ate this weekend from the fixed menu, paying small supplements for the 'specials'. The Cèpes and langoustine in vibrant potimarron sauce was extraordinarily refined and tasty - testimony to the high quality of ingredients used by the chef. Definitely worth a visit.

The food was refined and exquisitely prepared, the aged angus beef served with a truffle sauce was the best steak I'd had in while. The service was very friendly and informative, and the overall price reasonable considering the quality of the whole experience
