An atmospheric place with delicious food. A very good service, and what's more, it's fast and efficient . An additional advantage is the location in the center of Waterville and close to the beach, the view from the restaurant is amazing. Highly recommended and I...will definitely be back.More

What a beautiful place in waterville! The views from the front were stunning! During my holidays in waterville I had the calamari as started, wild prawn salad and the salmon for main. Everything was so delicious! And the staff was friendly and welcoming, specially James....I almost forget, don't go without ordering the passion fruit cheescake and the gluten free brownie. Absolutely delicious.More

Ate here on a beautiful evening and sat in their outside eating area at the back of the restaurant. Service was extremely friendly and it was quick. I had chicken wings as a starter, then mussels. The wings were fantastic, hot and spicy, just as...I like them. The mussels were a bit quirky, done in a sauce flavoured with turmeric, but they were very good. My wife had a seafood chowder, which was a meal in itself, then a prawn salad, which she loved. Altogether a really nice experience and would highly recommend it.More

Had the most beautiful meal in The Lobster yesterday. Every morsel of food was devoured. The prawn salad that I had was exceptional and the service was unquestionable. I cannot wait to go back on my next visit. Well done to everyone at the Lobster.

I had a family meal in the Lobster and was so impressed by the food. The service from the staff was brilliant and they were so friendly. I would highly recommend a visit to the Lobster. I’ll be back to Waterville again to the Lobster....Also the Pint of Guinness did not disappoint.More

Due to Covid restrictions, we were lucky to get a table at this restaurant during good weather on a recent weekend visit. Our waitress was very nice and the food was super, just as I'd read in other reviews here. Would highly recommend.

We were really impressed with the Lobster bar this evening. We were seated very quickly in a lovely outdoor terrace out the back which was sheltered which was ideal as it was quite sunny. Staff were very helpful, prompt with service and pleasent.We had a...beautiful meal of sea bass, wings & calamari and delicious brownies for desert. After a few nights of eating in the area the Lobster was definitely the best and we can see why it's so popular. 100% will reccomend.More
