Le Contese Prosecco Spumante gave the meal a great refreshing start. 3 course lunch meal for €35 not expensive when you take into consideration the exceptional food quality. A... More

The restaurant is situated half a mile of the popular St. Stephen's Green area and is very easy to reach by public transport. We were with a larger group of people and needed more than just one table. It was no problem for the fully dedicated staff to manage serving our tables simultaneously and to guarantee a smooth continuation of... More

We ate here recently and there's not much wrong you can say about the place. It is a lovely laid out and decorated restaurant. The staff are so polite, professional and friendly. You can really tell by the service and their commitment to what they are doing that they are passionate about the food and the restaurant. The food itself... More

Very welcoming atmosphere, great food, wonderful wine and a family-run feel to it. Some people may moan that it is too expensive, but you get what you pay for - and this was very good indeed. Worth every penny.

From the moment you step into l'Ecrivain you are treated with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. All the staff from Diana at the front desk, all the waiters and waitresses are fantastic, chatty and always with a smile and Martina really knows her stuff about the wines. We are eating again here in a couple of weeks time for a... More

Had a great meal mid week in January. Diana from reservations was very helpful the day I was trying to book a table. Staff were very polite, professional and helpful. We both had the tasting menu and we both loved it. Would highly recommend it to anyone who is near the restaurant.

I have eaten here on a number of occasions and I have to say, it rarely disappoints. I booked a birthday lunch early in December and it was a great lunch. We were welcomed upon arrival and shown quickly to our table. There was a pleasant buzz in the room, the staff were efficient and friendly, and my wife's coeliac... More

I had high expectations for this place given its M1 rating, but was a bit let down. The service was top notch; very professional, attentive and nice. However, the food was not worth the cost. Presentation of thr quail and foie gra was excellent, but the taste wasn't mind blowing. We all had the duck as our entree and I... More

Not overly friendly welcome, somewhat aloof. Although we arrived on time we were shown to bar and table not ready. No apology and obviously to get us to buy something from bar. Eventually shown to table in middle of room and I asked if we could move to table along wall - a fairly haughty No! Order taken by manager... More
