€35 lunch was very good, but note a 12.5% gratuity is automatically added to this. Also, we asked for tap water, but were served "L'Ecrivain" water in a bottle (filtered tap water perhaps?), which was a small extra charge (a euro or two I think). Food was very good standard, but the portion sizes were verging on the ridiculous and... More

I was lucky to be invited for lunch last week. I must say I was impressed at the pre seating area before the meal. the mushroom soup was excellent and the pork belly was also excellent. it was so well cooked it melted in my mouth. the wine was excellent. Although the portions were small I was shocked that I... More

Food came quick, and was some of the tastiest food I have ever tasted . The wines were superb also . I especially enjoyed the area for pre... More

We were invited here for a birthday dinner and were looking forward to the experience. We arrived before the rest of our party and were seated at the bar for a pre-dinner cocktail in a nice relaxed space. As others said before the menu is a bit limited but that is often the case I a high end restaurant. Quality... More

Yes, yes, yes. Utter professionalism disguised in a relaxed atmosphere, guise and manner. The staff provide excellent, yet appropriately informal service (thanks MARTINA and AMANDA!) and the food is exactly as one might expect from a Michelin starred restaurant. See you again soon.

Service was superb. Food we ordered while small was tasted superb and presented well. However menu was very limited so I had to order something I wouldn't normally.

it was a pleasure to eat in a Michelin 1 star restaurant in Ireland. the food certainly complimented that. it was exceptionally well presented and tasted scrumptious. the ambience though is a bit stiff like i was attending the queens afternoon tea party! please lighten up a little guys. if you have foreigners serve make sure they continue with that...

Food was beautiful, portions a little small but amazingly presented and full of flavour! Bill was €273 for 2 of us. They have the reputation but felt it was still overpriced for the experience!! The wine was nothing out of this world, but we drank 2 bottles so it must have been ok!

This almost seems like a restaurant that wants to keep the options few and the performance of each solid, but doesn't that create boredom. 4 options for starter and 4 for main, and none really hit my fancy, so we had a starter and a main and that was it. The bread was good, the amuse vouches very good, but... More
