The food was really nice. I found the service terribly annoying with this artificial french accent and over the top unnatural smile. I did not like the decor at all.

My companion kept this little gem a secret, although he has eaten here several times and likes to return when visiting Dublin. It was new and fresh to me and all the more interesting for it being out of the blue. This is a delightful, sophisticated restaurant that can stand up to the most exacting scrutiny. The menu is thoughtful,... More

Decided to treat ourselves for a special occasion and got a cancellation on a busy Saturday night. From start to finish it was simply sublime from the moment we sat down to walking out the door....it's what you would like to experience everywhere you eat but alas it's not to be! The man himself came to our table to apologise... More

Was here with friends for set lunch menu! It didn't disappoint and the courses were delicious. Attention to detail is everything and the waiters were exceptional. The wine list is a bible of wines, however very expensive ! Not for the faint hearted !! Overall great experience .

Ideal restaurant for a comfortable business meal. Very spacious surrounds with plenty of room between tables to stay out of earshot. With 2 Michelin stars the food doesn't disappoint. Lobster ravioli is exquisite.

We'd planned this meal for the last night of a weeklong trip through the country and in advance of it my wife was worried. She said some reviews on TA were over the top great and others somewhat negative about the experience/price/service. After enjoying a delicious meal here I can definitely understand both opinions and clarify. If you're a foodie... More

I ate here years ago and have always wanted to return. I remembered a superb lobster ravioli and was delighted to find a variant still on the menu. Then I had the best pigeon dish I've ever eaten followed by cheese with 4 matched wines then a superb soufflé. Three courses are just over €100 which is fair enough given... More

The attention to detail and the quality of our dining experience was remarkable. Patrick Guilbaud personally stopped by our table and even posed with us for a picture. Used online reservation system and it worked perfectly. This is a ten star restaurant that offers the best French food in Ireland. The food was great, but the show is the service.... More
