I have eaten in Bodega many times for lunch with friends,and several times for dinner, and I've never been disappointed. Cormac and the other staff instantly make you feel welcome. The food is probably the best I've had in Waterford city, and the atmosphere is fantastic. 5 star quality without the prententiousness. I usually order the chicken with risotto for a main which is beautiful-flavoursome and not too filling. The Toulouse saugages are a favourite of my boyfriends and the last time we shared the duck springroll starter, which was fantastic. I can't really fault the place at all. It can be a tiny bit expensive, for my pocket anyway, but the quality is outstanding so you really do get what you pay for.

The Vee Bistro
1 Main Street, Tramore, Waterford

I went to this restaurant for a quick bite during the bank holiday weekend. We waited 40 minutes for our order. When the food finally arrived, it was lovely, but no attempt was made to apologise for the delay at all. We only ordered 1 course each. Understandably it was the bank holiday weekend, so perhaps this is why this happened. It was busy, but managable though. No one aproached us at all for the duration of our wait. I eventually called one of the waitresses to ask was something wrong, and if she could please check if our order was on the way. And she never came back to tell us what was happening or went to the kitchen to check. The food however was beautiful. The roast wedges of carrot, and parsnip were gorgeous. A potato bake made with cream and garlic was divine. I can't really complain about the food, I thoroughly enjoyed it, but the service left something to be desired.

Geoffs Cafe Bar
8/9 Johns Street , Please call us directly for Bookings 051-874787, Waterford City, Waterford

Geoffs is not only my favourite bar in Waterford, but also one of my favourite places for a casual lunch/ dinner with friends. The cous cous with Veg is a delicious vegetarian alternative, and the burgers are fantastic. I was reading previous reviews and there was one comment which I have to agree with. I can be a bit boring with my menu choices (when I go out to the same place for dinner), choosing my favourite thing on each visit, but I have found that sometimes they can be a little inconsistent. The only explanation I think is that perhaps a different chef is cooking the same item on the menu. It's only happened once or twice, where what I've ordered isn't as nicely cooked as the previous visit, but these things happen. They also serve the most gorgeous soda bread with their soup and a few starters/ mains. My only criticism is that they don't serve food on Sundays...but everyone needs a day off I suppose.

Seahorse Tavern
3 Strand Street, Tramore, Waterford

My boyfriend decided to bring me for an evening meal, and after hearing great things from some close friends, we decided to try the Seahorse instead of some of our usual dining spots in Tramore. My memory of the Seahorse from yesteryear was that of an old local pub, so I was still a little bit apprehensive about what it would be like now. We were absolutely blown away by the stylish decor and the cosy atmosphere. Whoever redecorated did a great job. The staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly and sat us almost immediately despite how busy it was. We had our drinks order within minutes. I thought the menu was an ecclectic mix which worked well. I find that some places focus too much on seafood when they're based in a seaside resort so it was nice to see everyone was catered for. There were several things I would have happily ordered so deciding was the hardest thing. I had the chicken liver parfait to start, which was delicious and full of flavour and the salmon with seasonal veg as my main. The fish was cooked to perfection, delicate and fresh-just top class. It was obvious they had sourced great produce. My boyfriend had the smoked haddock starter, which he devoured, and the burger as a main which comes with the nicest tomato relish ever! We shared an apple crumble which I would highly recommend as I ate most of it:). It was just a great, relaxed, fun evening out, and the staff couldn't do any more for us than they did. I came online to search for their contact number to book ahead for this weekend, even for the early-bird if we can make it out there in time after work.
