I ate here recently on a random Thursday night as we had bought a deal on thetaste.ie for two three course seasonal meals for €75. It was amazing value and will happily return and pay full price as in essence, it's a six course meal with amuse bouche, sorbet and petit fours. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and doesn't...

We took the private room 'The Kitchen' to celebrate my mothers 80th birthday and had the most fantastic time. Excellent food, wonderful ambience, exceptional staff - we had a truly memorable evening - relaxing and yet very attentive. Highly recommended - thanks to all the staff and keep it up. World class quality.

L'Ecrivain is one of these luxurious places where you go to get spoilt. We arrived at the restaurant for my husband's birthday on a wet cold evening. There was an initial mix up with our booking, but it was sorted quickly and we got a complimentary glass of prosecco as an apology. We both went for the tasting menu option.... More

I had a €100 voucher for this well-known but no longer Michelin star restaurant which I had wanted to visit for some time. Perfect occasion, lunch with a friend who appreciates good food. I knew we would go over the voucher values and we did by €28 despite the fact that there was only one glass of wine, one bottle... More

we went for the tasting menu with wines to match. It started great but owners daughter came in for dinner this distracted all the staff and they were not professional. we had some courses come out and the wines came well later. To spend 360 on a meal with wine you want to ensure the service is good- not here.... More

Monday evening in a rainy Dublin and got taxi to restaurant (must just emphasise that Ireland's taxi drivers are amazing - the stories they tell be it true or not). Restaurant was fully booked on a Monday! Corporate events at most tables. My husband and I were treated well but have to say after sampling Michelin Star Restaurants in Edinburgh... More

We have been to this restaurant twice. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone who has been to a Michelin-starred restaurant in any other country before, or to anyone who is genuinely interested in going out for a good meal. This restaurant comes across as a gimmicky restaurant that focuses on special occasion meals - only for those people... More

Had a very nice business dinner, food very good - decor excellent - there was a good vibe in the place for early in the week. The only fault was the condition of the toilet area it is in need of urgent attention.
