We had a beautiful meal with our son-in-law and both of our daughters. We went to Waterford to visit James and Miriam for the weekend. They booked Bodega for our meal. It was excellent from the Greetings at the door right through to our leaving at the end of the meal. Everything was cooked and served with perfection. The atmosphere was electric. There were many people celebrating birthdays. Nothing was left to chance. Everyone was treated as though he/she was the only client in the establishment. Staff were well trained and Customer Focused at all times. I will be recommending this restaurant to my extended family and many friends. Excellence.

Myself and my husband dined out in bodega when on a midweek break in Waterford. I had eaten here a number of weeks ago when on a hen night and had been impressed so decided to try it again. They did not let me down. I could not complain about one single thing. Despite Waterford city being noticeably quiet this restaurant was buzzing. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. We ate from the early bird menu which offers great value for money. I hate the goats cheese tartlet and my other half had the wings. Both (yes I did rob a wing or two) were very tasty. My husband then had the sliders for main course and I went with the fish special which was lemon sole. I was served three fillets of sole on a bed of the creamiest mash I've ever had. We had originally planned to go for the three course menu but found we were nicely full after just two course so after our bottle of wine we rounded off the meal with tea for him and a fabulous Baileys coffee for me. If you are looking for a fantastic restaurant in Waterford combining excellent food with excellent service go here.

The food was an absolute winner. Such a perfect marriage of flavours while being artistic and pushing boundaries is hard to achieve as these chefs have done. Six of us ate and everyone was impresses. Hats off to this locally sourced, well varied and perfectly executed menu. The setting is comfortable and fun and the service was fine.

Came here with as a group of 10, we ordered from the four courses for €30 menu, which was excellent value for money. An Amuse bouche of cold seasoned prawns was delicious, i had seafood chowder followed by fish pie, both were well presented and very tasty. The fish pie didn't contain any prawns, as advertised but apart from that it was perfect. My dessert of Mille Feuille was also excellent. This is the nicest restaurant i have eaten in in Waterford city and would definitely return when in the area again.

I've been here before, but I brought my cousin from Canada here for lunch one Saturday and it was the best food I'd ever had there! We had the pumpkin soup and it was so good I asked the chef for the recipe which he gladly and helpfully gave to us! I'm sure it won't taste nearly as good but absolutely worth every penny (and we didn't have to spend a lot of pennies either!) Overall it was one of my best trips there or anywhere in quite a long time! Well and highly recommended.

Yum! We were staying in Waterford for the weekend and I booked Bodega for dinner after a lot of thought. We ordered the crab and prawn cannellini and the mozzarella and tomato galette for starters - both very tasty. As I had a big lunch I opted for another starter for my main - the goats cheese and my husband got the fish pie. Both were again delicious. As the food had been so good we decided to go for desserts - we had the hot chocolate souffle and the Deise bread & butter pudding - really delicious. We also had a great Argentinian Pinot Noir which was available by the carafe - a great idea if you plan on having a few drinks for the remainder of the evening! All in all, I'll be back the next time I am in Waterford and i'd have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. My one negative would be the single shared toilet for the size of the restaurant but its a minor complaint.
