Went in without a reservation on Saturday about 5.30 they were fully book from about 6.30 so we had to be quick! Just ordered mains and what a treat! Ravioli was amazing kitty's pasta was so good she had to guard her plate from us and the fillet steak u could cut with a butter knife (I'm not one for steaks when out, but himself had to guard his plate too) the sauce was on the side but it didn't need it the meat was so good. Now onto service they have got this right too the girl who served us was so lovely knew what she was doing took an interest in kitty to make her feel special but not to the point of being false. Went next door after and saw a stream of people going in. It's our new go to place for a night out.

Initial disappointment as we tried to order from a menu that wasn't available, although offered. The food was good, and portions if anything over-generous. Attentive service.

Walk in with no reservation early on a Friday evening, ordered a seafood pasta dish and pizza - both huge and very tasty!
Would eat here again when next in Waterford.

It was the evening of the 29th of October 2014 and we stayed in a nearby hotel on our weeks tour of Ireland. This restaurant had reasonable reviews and we took a table for two.
The menu was comprehensive enough and we ordered a pizza and battered prawn with a chilli sauce for starters... that was okay but nothing exceptional.
The service from our waitress with an Italian accent was slow and very casual. We ordered a shellfish pasta dish and Tortellini in a tomato sauce. Again this was okay but not exceptional.
I went to the bathroom and the first thing I noticed was a plywood floor in the corridor and in the toilet. The seat in the gents WC was broken and it was not clean.
Then my partner visited the ladies... again no tiles on the floors and one broken seat in one of the two toilets. The two ladies toilets where unusable, both very badly soiled (I will spare you graphic details) No excuse for the state they where in on the night of the 29th at 9pm. They should be checked every hour or so by staff and sorted out immediately if need be.
Had we had not already eaten we would have left. I brought the state of the toilets to the attention our Italian waitress and she told me it was nothing to do with her and not her responsibility. She apologised and said she would have a word with the cleaners....... not a good response, it should never have happened and broken seats.... no excuse unless they happened that day. Not a good experience... Clean toilets are very important and part of the overall dining experience.
