Bleu in Tramore.. Guest Blog by Pamela Caldwell

Last Saturday evening Kevin and I decided last minute to treat ourselves to a nice meal out somewhere local in Waterford. Being spontaneous we hadn’t book anywhere and were surprised & delighted to find both the Copper Hen in Fenor and Emiliano’s in Waterford city were both booked out so we ambled into Tramore and I looked up Top Tramore restaurants on Trip Advisor and there was Bleu at the top of the list.

I had tried to book a few months previous when my sister was visiting but it was booked out so we walked in with fingers crossed and we felt very lucky to land the very last table for the evening, 2 high stools beside the bar. The first thing that hit me was the buzzy atmosphere and lovely ambience. The waiter was knowledgable and professional and he excitedly told us about their specials. We decided to go for their great value 3 courses for €25 per person and ordered a glass of red wine for me and a Heineken for Kev.

My starter, the salt and paper calamari was to die for, as was Kevin’s Goats cheese tart. We normally share each other’s meals when we eat out but the calamari was so delicious I wolfed it down before Kevin could have a taste ! I of course did taste his goats cheese and indeed it was divine !

For mains I went for the steak frites and Kevin had the pasta which were both also delicious.

For dessert I had my old favorite the Creme brûlée and Kevin had the pavlova with berries washed down with a double espresso ! It was bliss !

All in all it was a great evening and we feel very lucky to have such a lovely little restaurant right on our doorstep – I am sure we will be regulars and I look forward to our next visit.
