Myself and my wife just availed of TheDiningRoom.ie voucher for 1/2 price offer on L'Ecrivain's 8 Course Tasting Menu. (75euro instead of usual 150euro for 2 people) Having reviewed some of the earlier reviews of the same tasting menu at this location we were somewhat apprehensive about what we might experience. But thankfully any doubts we may have had were... More

The place is excellent, as you'd expect for their star, however, the tasting menu plus is excessive - I'm a GOOD drinker, really had a lot of practice, but it was just too much - mixing red, white and sweet wines and a glass with all 10 courses - just got too drunk. My own to control, I guess, but... More

Greatly enjoyed a recent return visit to L'Ecrivain. This is only my second time visiting but I found the food again very good and the atmosphere very enjoyable. Highlight from this visit was again the excellent pork belly. They didn't have the prosecco we ordered to start and happily replaced with champagne, a nice touch. Wine suggestions were excellent. Some... More

Went for a romantic meal with my husband and we had purchased a deal for the tasting menu. I've never had a tasting menu before but I would not recommend this one as the food was not to my liking. We received the 8 course menu and not one course really wowed myself or my husband. They were very small... More

From start to (eventual) finish, one of the finest meals my wife and I have ever eaten, including a 3* Michelin in Paris. The prawns are simply magnificent. Superb wine recommendation, friendly un-stuffy staff, its all so relaxed and sophisticated. Probably the only reason I can think of to be another year older!

Absolutely wonderful food all around - and brilliant service from start till end. The sommelier in particular was magnificent with great stories about all the wines and a lovely bubbly character! Definitley worth a visit if you enjoy good gourmet food and great service!

The service upon entry was outstanding. The staff were so delightful and friendly. We were escorted upstairs which is a beautiful room.... More

Visited this restaurant on Monday last for the taster menu, staff were excellent, very attentive and polite. Food or lack of it should I say, portions were exceptionally small by every standard of taster menu I have ever had. After close to 3 hours sitting at our table we asked the waiter would the next course be long, he said... More

A beautiful room with just the right amount of light and ambiance. We sat upstairs and were treated to a fantastic meal. Foie Gras to start, my wife had the carpaccio, then pork belly and hake. The execution was impressive with every mouthful fantastic.

Four of us went with high expectations to L'Ecrivain and while the food itself was good it simply wasnt worth the price paid. Portions were small, I paid €40, €37 plus service charge for a small piece of pork that would have been a nice sized starter, I had the consomme, I know that its supposed to be a delicate... More
