The Bay Tree Bistro in Waterford City has been awarded the Bord Bia Just Ask Restaurant of the Month for May.
Keith and Carmel Boyle’s two storey restaurant on Merchants Quay has earned a reputation for service and value. A combination of old and new give this lovely bistro a welcoming feeling while also conveying a sense of occasion. Upstairs in the restaurant, monthly changing menus are based around the seasons.
According to owner and chef Keith Boyle: “Our ethos is locally sourced food, cooked locally by a local chef. All our produce is sourced from small artisan suppliers where possible or from local butchers, fishmongers and farmers. All our dishes are made in house; from our breads and desserts to our stocks, sauces, pastas and ice cream. We firmly believe that quality always prevails over quantity.”
“Piedmontese beef is supplied to us by John Commins in Tipperary and Crowe’s Farm supply us with their outdoor reared pork. Our Irish chicken is sourced from Oakpark Foods in Carlow and Elda Wild Irish Venison of Dunhill, Co. Waterford supply us with wild game in season. Billy Burke in Co. Waterford supplies us with our fish and shellfish,” he continued.
“Dunphy’s in Annestown, Co. Waterford supply us with the majority of our vegetables, with our heritage potatoes coming from Ballymakenny Farm in Co. Louth and fruit and berries provided by David Dennison. Mark Murphy of Mooncoin Beetroot supply us with our beetroots and we also have a dedicated forager – Andrew Malcolm of Lismore, Co. Waterford.”
