Upon myself and my wife arriving in Dublin at the start of December for a midweek break from London, we decided to visit the much famed restaurant Patrick Guillbaud. We were recommended it by a close friend of ours and to say we were not disappointed is an understatement. From start to finish it was a truly wonderful experience which still excites the senses thinking about it now. I don't think its possible for a restaurant to be situated in a more picturesque location, much the same as a beautiful frame houses a painting masterpiece. I must admit the staff are a credit to this place as we were greeted with a very warm welcome. Throughout the service the waiting staff and the sommelier breezed effortlessly around us like a well orchestrated choir just adding to the ambience.
We arrived for the lunch service and began with a pea tortellini and crispy chicken for starter. A very well thought out dish with a wonderfully fragrant truffle dressing. For the main course I chose a crispy slow cooked pork with lemon lemon star anise and liquorice which was perfectly executed. To finish of I decided on the Guanaja chocolate tart and mango sorbet. The rich chocolate complemented beautifully with a very smooth and delicate sorbet. Overall it is very hard to fault the food and wine in this establishment. Not overly priced and as good as some of the 3 stars in London in my humble opinion. Well worth the trip to a great city and a fantastic institution of fine dining.
