We called in as a group of five on a busy day. The food was excellent and the service was first class yet unobtrusive. A thoroughly enjoyable meal was had by us all.

McLearys has only been around since 2011 when they opened on High Street. The Wine Vault was there before them and that opened in the late 80's I think. Before that, "proper" restaurants were few and far between in Waterford
