I love to eat and Guilbaud's was on my radar for a while but as part of my New Year's resolution to eat in all of the Irish Michelin starred restaurants this year I had to get there quick!
We went for the lunch menu, which really is great value. I mean, eating in a two-star restaurant for €50? It's pretty amazing.
Anyway, overall it was really lovely. Very easy-going about being a vegetarian. I was able to order off the a la carte menu for the fixed price and had a great walnut pasta. They even did a special amuse-bouche for us, which was great. I LOVED my basil-corn soup too. I would definitely spring for the three courses because the cheese board (ahem, trolley) is just amazing. You can choose any five cheese - lucky me got six - from France and Ireland. So great!
It's definitely the sort of place you go for a special occasion, but it's totally worth going to. I found it to be very welcoming and friendly as well. My only little complaint would be our table - it felt as though it was in a hallway and I would have liked a bit more natural light. But, no real complaints!
