Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Food warm not hot. Wasn't aware that each extra item was €2.50, per item. Breakfast for 2 ended up costing over €47 would never go back. Absolute rip off

I ordered some dishes from the catering menu for a last minute birthday celebration for my Mum. Rang on a Wednesday and no problem sorting me out for the Saturday. Collected the food on the day with ease and was supplied with cooking/re heating instructions....Food was delicious, enjoyed by both adults and children. There was also enough left for lunch the following day. Have already booked in for another date.More

This café is positioned between the town centre and the hotel in which we were staying. It started to rain as we were walking to the town centre, so we decided to call-in for a coffee. It opens quite early and seemed to be very...popular with locals. It has a nice large interior, pleasant staff and we enjoyed two good quality flat white coffees, which cost €6.10.More

Happened on this delight, quite by chance, while wandering the streets of Waterford. The range and quality of food on offer was nothing short of phenomenal and very reasonably priced, in considering the monster portions. A definite must if you’re in Waterford. Mike H. Glasgow.

I had the 'vegetable' soup with brown bread, euro 6. The soup was a uniform pale orange, gluey and tasted of white pepper. I asked what if was and nobody could tell other than 'vegetable'. It was disgusting. Could have been orange water with a...load of paper, thickened with gelatin! So I left it and tried the bread. This was 2 slices of 2cm thick hard bread that I could not cut with a knife. It was stale. A disaster. My husband had a fry up which was fine though but we will avoid this place in future.More

Lunch was so good it is a reason in and of itself to go to Waterford. We had the homemade veg soup and incredibly good homemade brown bread. Service was friendly and fast, prices were very reasonable, and the food was so good. Our flat...white coffees were great too. This restaurant is just one block in from the waterfront and it was the perfect stop to fuel up before seeing the museums. Highly, highly recommend!More
