First class service from the moment we entered the restaurant. The bar on the ground floor is very comfortable with a first class martini served before dinner. The menu was excellent and the wine list and assistance from the sommolier were wonderful, adding to overall experience.

Went here for my birthday (technically a joint birthday with my girlfriend). The total experience was very very good. Whilst the entryway felt rather intimidating, the staff were pleasant, welcoming, and very friendly. The downstairs bar was empty (apart from us) but looked very stylish. When we were escorted upstairs, the dining room was busy, but not crowded. A nice... More

The place is nice and the food looks beautiful, but when you eat it it seems another plate, with flat taste and everything overcooked. It does not worth the price.

My wife and I went here for a birthday celebration We opted for the 5 course tasting menu with the wine included (I booked this in advance) The overall experience was very good. Several of the courses were beautiful, although a couple not to my taste, but all beautifully presented and the service was superb. The wine pairing is a... More

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...
