While staying at the Merrion Hotel for a weekend break we booked a table at the fantastic Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud. This is Ireland's only 2 Michelin star restaurant and we were really looking forward to the experience. We were not disappointed.
The restaurant is beautiful inside with a nice relaxed atmosphere. The dress is smart casual but not fussy, some people were in jeans but most people dressed for the occasion. The service was excellent and the staff were very attentive. The food (the reason we wanted to go to this restaurant) was flawless, beautifully cooked with exceptional ingredients. It was a fantastic experience.
Mr. Guilbaud was present on the night and introduced himself at every table which was a nice touch. This is an expensive restaurant but worth it for the experience and quality of the food and service. If you are after a real culinary treat, look no further.
