On a beautiful sunny afternoon in west Waterford, my husband and I visited this wonderful Gallic Inn, and if first impressions were what we would have rated this restaurant on it would have got a 6 star rating, however this was not to be. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress, whose knowledge of both menu and wine list was impeccable, we were both salivating at the thought of what was to come. Alas we were left disapointed, both starters were very good, a warm pear and goats cheese salad and a duck starter, this was followed by a main of steak and frittes, which was good, I myself had the Monkfish, which was cooked lovely, but the size of the portion, which had i got for a starter, i would have thought was small, and at a cost of €27.00 i was extremly annoyed, the deserts were amaturish, mine was warm berries, with merangue and ice cream, this consisted of a soup of berries with broken merangue thrown on top, it was what a child would prepare, my husbands apple tart, was ok the best thing about it was the caramel ice cream. at a total price of €127.00 and with tip €140.00 we will not alas be returning. If this restaurant were to match its front of house and quality of food it would be a winner.

Emilianos Ristorante Italiano
21 High st, Waterford, Waterford City, Waterford

On Sat last, A group of 6 of us went to Emiliano's restaurant as we have done on many occasions. Unfortunately instead of moving with the current climate this place is moving in the opposite direction, the food was to say the least average, and we all felt like this, but I think the worst was when one of our party had ordered for his main dish a dish he has gotten on many occasions mussels and risotto, his dish arrived with 4 mussels, as I say he has got this dish before and it always had at least 10 mussels, when he brought this to the attention of a member of staff, he was told they were short of mussels that night, but to our horror he was still charged for a large dish @ €14.50 We will not be returning again there are too many great restaurants in Waterford to waste money going here.
