Bought a 10 course tasting menu off TheTaste.ie recently and had the most amazing night. Sallyanne, Derry and their team made us feel so welcome. The meal was amazing. My tastebuds were exploding. The ambience in the restaurant is elegant warm and welcoming. A night to remember.

The starter on the tasting menu was amazing. Onion and broth. Still thinking about it. Excellent and reasonable wine list. Tiny pour of champagne for 19€ was annoying. Staff very nice--we inadvertently were an hour late for reservation. Waiter did not do a great job of describing the vegetarian option accurately. Dining room lovely. Special overall.

There are restaurants that have "snob appeal" - they are well known, have prizes and are patronised by a certain "set". These usually tend to be the kind of places I wouldn't go near, although I have been pleasantly surprised by one or two of these establishments by their amazing cuisine. L'Ecrivain is not one of these exceptions. The food... More

Excellent. Always a treat and never disappoints. While the tasting menu is an indulgence for gastronomes, regular a la carte always has something very interesting. Can be a bit expensive and portions may be on the small side but the festival of tastebuds more than compensates. The wine list has something for every wallet if you work it hard enough.

We had the 10 course tasting meal, which was just outstanding. My companion had avoided oysters and steak tartare for years, but was completely bowled over by their deliciousness. Every dish is put together perfectly and very well balanced - just great fine-dining cooking! Excellent wine selection, but it is on the pricey side. We took a bottle of Vino... More

We went for the 10 course tasting menu it was very nice, but don't think its really worth the money. each course as it was served was explained to us but unfortunately this was not very clear. Nice comfortable restaurant atmosphere a bit dull.

From the moment we arrived until the moment a txt was ordered for us, we experienced fine dining. Having chosen the degustation menu with matching wines we settled in to be 'entertained' - and entertained we were. The food is delicate and delicious. Each course takes you on a different tasting experience. The matching wines, from both old and new... More

A wonderful restaurant. Before our dining experience here, we had been underwhelmed with our food in Dublin. Decor and staff were fabulous. Though a little pricy we felt our dinner was a great value. Highly recommend.

We had salmon to start followed by organic chicken and raspberry sorbet. Potion size good not too much. Bit too much attention felt obvious like they wanted us to go. When it cMe to... More
