Mediterranean
In the heart of Waterford City is a restaurant that champions the local food experience. From the beginning, we have strived to offer the best of local produce where possible, to give value for money, to have fun, to provide great food and drinks & to have relaxed customers who can really let themselves go!!

Waterford is a hotbed for fresh, world class quality local produce from farmer to fisherman. The finest seafood & shellfish from Dunmore East, Kilmore Quay & Castletownbere, to the most succulent of local beef or organic pork from The Comeragh Mountains, "Free range" chicken from Wexford.
With Sebastien Lajoye in the kitchen cooking up a storm, and restaurant manager, Mercedes, in charge of front of house, we can provide you with an experience to remember!

    The experience was superb. From the service to the delicious food, 10/10, five stars! The Tom Kearney beef burger was incredible, as was the pecan brownie for dessert. Fantastic attentive service from Renelle. Can’t wait to return!

    Service was excellent, and although a little on the pricey side, the food is very good. Perhaps a bit noisy, so maybe not the place to go if you are looking for a quiet evening.

    Only small fault was portion sizes of kids menu, younger child got burger and chips which was alot bigger than the older child getting pasta, pasta portion was very small could count the pasta pieces and had to ask and pay for another portion.. possibly check age of child eating the pasta and child's menus...

    Unfortunetly, we had a very poor meal in Bodega, we cold throughout the whole meal, depsite telling the waitress twice, we left our coats on the whole way through our meal. Myself and my mam ordered the steak and they were awful, so so tough, we did tell the male waiter, he did offer to send them back, however, we thought they ones we would get back would be the same and also the time it would take to recook them. My brothers meal was forgotten about si by the time, he got his dinner we were almost finished our dinner, overall a very disappointing dinner and we wont be back in a hurry!

    We were a group of four and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We got there early, at 5.30, and enjoyed a good chat and delicious food in a lovely ambience before the restaurant filled up and became rather noisy with happy chatter. Will definitely be back!
