I visited l'ecrevain with my family to celebrate a surprise birthday! Usually when we visit restaurants around Ireland we have no previous expectations, however, with the celebrity chef attached that is Derry Clarke we were expecting big things. Upon entry we were pleasantly surprised with unique decor and fantastically sleek layout! It seemed very professional and instantly classy! We were... More

This restaurant is all that it's hyped up to be and I would definitely recommend it for a special occasion, treat, or for a family night out. From the moment you walk in, the staff are at your service and the service remains impeccable throughout the night. The first question asked by our waiter was " would you like an... More

The food and service were outstanding but it lacked atmosphere. We had a small private room and the amuse bouche were first class Probably best for business

We opted for l'Ecrivain for our anniversary and it has been the best choice that we ever did. We had chosen the "8 courses tasting dinner menu" and from beginning to end it has been an explosion of tastes and pleasures. Everything was combined in a balanced way and all the eight dishes were original and fanciful. All the staff,... More

Outstanding. I took my mother here for a special dinner and we practised our French. Remi was outstanding from the outset and deserves special acclaim. We watched him all night and he made every single customer feel very very special. Very difficult to find great staff. Remi is spectacular! You need to hang on to him! Brilliant and welcoming and...

Last night we tried the tasting menu with the wine pAiring and the lamb dish was the best lamb ever! All dishes were beautifully presented and mostly very tasty. However, the highlight was the very friendly and knowledgable lady sommelier. Be sure to get into a conversation with her - its worth it!

It was a special occasion so the two of us had the tasting menu and the wine pairing. It was sensational. The service was impeccable, the wine was sensational - as was the sommelier - and the food was out of this world. A fantastic night to remember.

This restaurant in lower Baggot Street, Dublin is an amazingly high-class restaurant. As you enter, you are offered a choice of going to the bar for a drink before going upstairs to eat or going straight up. We chose to head to the bar and then upstairs. I suffer from a severe nut allergy, so we rang in advance to... More

Nobody reserves a table here without some research ! Menu, winelists etc are easily found on their webpage. The choices are formidable. So- reserve a table,sit down in the bar and take a nice drink before the meal- and then just let this well deserving Michelin Star restaurant send you of to Gourmet Wonderland ! Just enjoy and dont spoil... More
