Over that time kings, conquerors and traders have landed on the bank of the Suir that hems the city, shaping its fortunes. The Port of Waterford building is a striking Georgian four-storey looking towards Merchant’s Quay. And fittingly it is here, in the basement, that La Bohème offers a confluence of French cooking and Irish produce.
La Bohème Waterford offers a taste of France in the heart of Waterford city.
Eric Theze head chef/proprietor of La Boheme together with his wife Christine (front of house) own and manage the restaurant. They are passionate about everything local and organic. They support local Irish producers. Salads and vegetables are sourced from a city centre horticultural initiative, fish and shellfish are sourced from the ports of Dunmore East or Kilmore Quay. Locally, they source lamb and beef and organic vegetables. Eric smokes his own salmon and even makes his own crème de cassis. The cooking might have a French slant, but the Irish ingredients are top notch, and this makes for a very exciting combination.
