The Old Couch Cafe

I'm Luis Martin, the chef-owner here at the Old Couch Cafe in the heart of Waterford, Ireland. With a culinary journey that took me from the prestigious Cenador de Amos kitchen, 3 Michelin-starred restaurant, in Spain to the refined settings of five-star hotels in Ireland; I bring a wealth of experience and a passion, ensuring a memorable dining experience!

My culinary journey is not just a career; it's a love affair with the art of food. I take pride in crafting every dish by hand, ensuring that each bite tells a story of dedication and craftsmanship. From my early days in Spain to the vibrant culinary scene in Ireland, my approach to cooking is grounded in a commitment to excellence.

At the Old Couch Cafe, we go beyond creating dishes; we embrace a strong ethos of sustainability and waste reduction. Every plate is a testament to our dedication to responsible practices, from sourcing local, seasonal ingredients to minimizing our environmental footprint.

Join me on a culinary adventure that marries Spanish tradition with innovation, where every dish is a celebration of flavours, textures, and the joy of sharing a memorable meal. Welcome to the Old Couch Cafe, where passion meets the plate.
