    So I have my mum and aunt coming to visit me next weekend. I am looking for a nice restaurant in the city where we can an early bird at a reasonable price, somewhere that caters for kids (he is 9). Not looking for an Italian, Chinese or Indian restaurant, just somewhere that serves good honest non fancy food! :D

    Any help is appreciated :)

    The Bodega in John street, I went there with my wife, toddler and baby a few years ago and they and the food was lovely, just checked online and they have an early bird for 20 or 25 euro,

    L'atmosphere.
    Lovely French rustic food - very reasonable, very good. Google for address - it's just off the Quays.

    +1 on L'Atmosphere, really good food and a good price.

    +1 for Bodega.
    Personally, I much prefer it to L'Atmosphere.

    Is L'atmosphere in the basement of some civic building? I ate in that place as well a few years ago and the food was really nice but the atmosphere(pardon the pun) might be a little stuffy for what the OP specified, maybe I have the wrong place.
    The Bodega were really happy to have us with the small kids, the night we were there there was a French couple in with absolutely no English, half the restaurant was using our pitiful leaving cert french to try to translate Items off the menu for them, the owner was there and he was a really nice bloke, in saying all this I've only eaten in a few places in Waterford so I may not be the best to recommend but that place left a really good impression on me.

    Why dont you just go to the Waterford restaruant guide and see what people say there? this has been done an awful lot on this page!

    Bodega is very kid friendly and the food is always spot on. Would definitely be the place I'd hit if I was looking for a nice sit down meal with kids tagging along.

    L'Atmosphere is seriously hit and miss (and I seem to always get the miss!) as far as I've experienced. I wouldn't spend another dime in there to be honest, everyone shoved in like sardines and the service is a friendly as wet sponge. Have had some seriously substandard food in there as well.

    I've heard this from a few people but I have eaten there four times this month on their early bird three courses and a glass of wine for 20 squid and could not fault it, the rather sharp baltic lady who was rather cold seems to be gone , present staff are lovely.
