Myself and my husband have just spent a fabulous weekend in Waterford. We went to LAtmosphere on the advice of Trip Advisor Reviews. We were very glad we did. We had a fabulous three course meal, one course better than the other, but all delicious. The Staff were so friendly and all very cheerful and happy that it is obviously... More

The early bird menu is excellent value. I asked for the escargot from the a la carte and the waiter needed to ask the chef but it was allowed! and it was delicious! The duck confit was also very very good. Very nice old building with high ceilings and stone walls, plenty of atmosphere, nice accommodating friendly staff, and good... More

Went to L'Atmosphere for the first time last Friday evening and ate from the early bird menu. The food was really tasty, beautifully simple and the perfect quantity for a 3 course menu. The service was excellent and friendly. The value for money is as good as I've had anywhere, €20 for 3 courses, incredible for this quality. Look forward... More

L'Atmosphere never ever fails to deliver. The value is second to none. The quality of ingredients is amazing and the food is some of the best rustic French I have ever tasted... Every time. It is a very casual restaurant but there is nothing casual about the quality of cooking. I have yet to ever visit a more consistant restaurant... More

Visited this restaurant with friends recently. We all had the early bird menus which was very tasty and great value - 3 courses for €20. I had chicken liver pate, confit of duck and some kind of chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream - all very delicious. Will go back again!

Nice restaurant Nice food But I found the staff inexperienced they where not able to describe the meals on the menu well and brought our starters to us before serving our drinks. I asked for an Irish hot whiskey the waitress said yes no problem but she bought back a shot of Luke warm whiskey. I explained to her what... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times & never had a bad word to say. Last time i visited was Christmas 2015 with a large group of ladies & we all said it was excellent. Regrettably however, last weekend was very poor, i feel cheaper ingredients were used. I ordered from the 29 euro meal, i feel my... More

Had heard good things about this place but was very disappointed with it. Decor is shabby without the chic. Just looked like not much effort put into getting it right. Too bright and furniture just looks dated rather than the rustic I imagine they were aiming for. Menu lacked any kind of description of what the dish was. Some detail... More

We dined here on a one night stop to Waterford based on other reviews and the restaurant did not disappoint. We each had the €20 3-course meal and it was delicious and filling. Great atmosphere. Friendly and attentive staff. Most likely need a reservation. Highly recommend.

Thank Todd W
