Very easy to book online , when we arrived we where shown to our table on the outdoor balcony , Fab view of the river while being kept warm with heaters . It was very quiet that night , but the service was fantastic.

The food was very bland, the calamari was chewy, the korma just tasted of tomatoes sauce, no food was seasoned at all. Would recommend going anywhere else.

Fantastic dining spot, the food was fantastic with generous portions, the staff were friendly and really helpful, the measures in place to assist in social distancing, hand sanitizer and mask wearing were handled really well and gave a great sense of reassurance that we could dine out and support a local business without risking the safety staff/ourselves/other customer

We really enjoyed our meal and a few drinks at The Reg. The food was fantastic and the staff were very helpful. Fair play to this business for dealing with Covid restrictions and still have a focus on good customer service. A1

Nice place. Music loud but did turn it down when we asked. Food average. Chicken burger was a bun with 2 small pieces of chicken goujons and 1 leaf of lettuce. When we complained we were told we were the first to complain since they reopened. What an answer. Chicken tikka masala not at all creamy. Tasted more like sweet n sour. Wouldnt go back.

Handed overcooked fish back and Donal O’Brien (general manager) wanted me to pay for it and the replacement meal! He was rude and arrogant with a major chip on his shoulder about something!? He stood less than two feet from us and didn’t wear a face covering like the rest of the staff. I told him that I would never recommend the place and he replied with “I don’t need your recommendations! I was so shocked at the carry on that I thought we were on a hidden camera show. Never again!

The staff were lovely and one particular waiter was recommending places for us to go on our last day staying up in waterford which was very helpful. The chicken wings and chips were delicious and so were the cocktails.

One this to mention. The food was nicer that a few weeks ago. Not sure if you changed the Chef. for example the chicken wings this time were nicer and the portion was bigger.
So well done this time.

Overall good food and experience.

Good atmosphere. Nice staff. Set menu 2 courses or 3 courses. Not everything included not even the chicken burger which is a bit odd. Nice place to eat. Very clammy would have liked a table on the rooftop looked nice. Overall good experience will go back.

Food was nice. I had cashel blue salad, husband had beef burger. His was delicious, mine was nice. There was way to much lettuce compared to rest of ingredients. I had a strawberry daiquiri and a baby bottle cocktails both were disgusting. Overall it was ok wouldnt rush back

Great food and cocktails. Cannot fault that. Slow food service. We had finished our main meal over 30 mins and we had to ask to see dessert menu. When we got our desserts they didn't supply right amount of cutlery. We had to get it ourselves as no servers around. Drink service was painfully slow. We had been seated 15 minutes before we got our first drink order brought to use and it was worse each round after. I know cocktails take some time but not that long. Myself and another member of our party had 2 whiskey sours. The first was in a proper whiskey glass. The second came in a much smaller coup/margarita glass. Much less drink for same price. We found this very cheeky. Everything else was great. Lovely place and food. However such slow service and downsizing of expensive drinks would put me off returning. The place we ate the night before was much busier and service was twice as fast. Maybe the reg need to hire more staff.
