La Palma on the Mall

Claudio, Rachel and Dario Cavaliere’s popular Italian restaurant is in a graceful Georgian building on Waterford’s Mall.


The restaurant is downstairs in a series of pleasant high-ceilinged Georgian rooms, with reception upstairs in a tall navy and beige drawing room, now working as a cocktail bar; here guests are greeted and seated, and offered a drink while you look at the menu - mainly an à la carte, but there’s also a very good value midweek “Treat” menu offered.


The tone is pleasingly rustic - dishes might include hearty bruschetta, pasta or confit of duck, and classic tiramisu – and meals begin generously, with a little amuse bouche and a choice of breads.


Specialities include Irish rose veal parmigiana style, with tomato, basil and fresh oregano salsa, and house variations on Italian classics are based on carefully sourced Irish ingredients, including local seafood.


Service is very pleasant and attentive, and the wine waiter is happy to give a good recommendation for the perfect bottle to accompany your meal.


Good coffee to finish, and an agreeably reasonable bill. [The old Palma is now called the Espresso and serves pizzas and pasta.]
