L’Atmosphere French restaurant in Waterford is well named; it oozes atmosphere. This small but perfectly formed French bistro is just off the quays, on Henrietta Street, at the Tower hotel end.

It is on Henrietta Street in Waterford, tucked away between Merchants Quay and the main shopping area of the city. L’Atmosphere is an authentic French bistro and wine bar run by Arnaud Mary and Patrice Garreau since 2005.

Arnaud Mary cooks French classics and seasonal and fresh dishes for a constant stream of locals as well as a smattering of the tourist trade. The room is traditional with scored rustic plasterwork and exposed rock and brick walls. The ceiling is high, with thick beams and more plaster, and the wooden floor and simple wooden tables and chairs complement the look perfectly.
