4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed today NEW

Very good restaurant, inside looking great, food is good as well, but something is missing. Maybe atmosphere is not great. You feel cold climate of that place.

Went for the 4 course seasonal menu. Sublime food and really deserving of their Michelin star from the all round experience of the evening. Will certainly return.

I rarely give full points to a restaurant. My usual rating for a very good meal is 4 out of 5. I generally have fee ratings of 3 and below. Probably because I can sniff out the mediocre places before crossing the threshold. L'Ecrivain is one of those exemptions where a 5 is deserved. Firstly, to comment on some of... More

So far I have taken advantage of other peoples reviews which I have found helpful and now I feel I should comment so that others can benefit from my experience and maybe the restaurant will take notice. The service was very good and attentive. The food was well presented and tasty. The portions were ridiculously small. We had 2 diners... More

Not managed to visit yet but rating given for the 50 minutes I waited on the phone being told my call was important to them but no one answered - if this is any indication of their service I don't think I shall bother - total waste of time & money on my mobile phone call.

We ordered the tasting menu with wine and the experience was average. We felt rushed by the staff. The first wine which was a Pinot Noir from New Zealand was served at room temp. The rest were average wines as well, nothing standing out.

The Taste.ie had a voucher for a 10 course tasting meal in L'echrivian for 2 people. From the moment we crossed the threshold of this restaurant we were greeted with warm hospitality. For some reason our reservation was not in the book but this didn't faze the hostess at all, she simply led us to a table. Every member of... More

Fantastic food, really fantastic food. The service was super fast, almost too fast, but when noted we were offered ample time. Really wonderful staff. A fine dining experience.

A lovely and very special dinner in L'Ecrivan with courses all matched with Krug champagnes. World class Sommelier Julie Dupouy talked to us during the dinner about the champagnes and the pairings with the food. The dinner was organised by O'Briens wines and was held in a separate dining area around one large table making it an extremely social evening.... More
