Found this to be a nice stop for a light lunch. The sandwiches were very tasty even ifa tad expensive and the atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice. Staff were very friendly

We visited Waterford and were looking for somewhere to eat lunch when we came across Berfranks. The sign said Gluten Free available and we went in. Pleased to say we had a great lunch and the staff were very pleasant. Try it.

Called to buy lunch as they are on the gluten free recommended list, and after choosing what we wanted they decided to tell us they had no gluten free bread left! Very small licenced shop that sell delicious looking food but sadly we couldn't buy.
