We dined here last night for our Anniversary. The Food was beautifully presented. I have to say the staff were all so friendly and attentive which is no wonder under the leadership of Stephane. The lamb and deer were excellent and our waiter was right..."the chocolate tart" is amazing!! thank you. Cathal & Orla Conaty

My other half treated me to lunch as part of my 60th Birthday Treat and what an experience it was too . We had both been in September 2014 where I had treated Leah for her 40th . Funny enough we had the pleasure of having the same waiter as previous visit which says something on its own about this... More

Visiting Dublin with friends and our passion is good restaurants so to get a table at a Michelin 2 star was a great bonus. Great place. Excellent door staff and lounge area. I guess the guy who shook our hands was the big man himself but he didn't introduce himself so I can't be sure. The champagne waiter was first... More

Really wanted to enjoy this experience, but this vegetarian was treated like a second class citizen despite the restaurant being warned by email there would be a veggie in the party. The meal I was finally served was awful - really tasteless. Even my coffee was cold. It really was a two-star event, but more B&B than Michelin.

A wonderful evening of fine dining. Exceptional (and I don't use that term lightly) food, wonderful wines and the staff were second to none. I have heard about this restaurant so much and I must confess to being intrigued about its 2 Michelin stars - really? Could it really be that good? The cynic in me was firmly told to... More

I took my partner to Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud as a valentines treat. It was the 2 stars that made me consider here but definitely the amazing sounding menu that made me book. Whilst perusing the menu we enjoyed a glass of champagne and a chat with Patrick Guilbaud. The canapes were excellent, anything with blue cheese and choux pasty is... More

A wonderful Valentine day treat. The whole event was great from the start waiting in the bar to the wonderful chocolate truffles at the end. Patrick Guilbaud came to speak to each table and he was a joy. A very special place

My husband booked as a really special birthday treat and it didn't disappoint. From the moment we walked in we were made feel special and the service from start to finish was first class. The food was really special and I had the deer and my husband had the beef for mains and the taste and flavour was amazing. In... More

We went there to celebrate Valentine's Day and my birthday. Our last visit was just over 3 years ago (we moved overseas), but the restaurant hasn't changed much. Same lovely greeting as you enter, same sense of space, pleasant decor, etc. The appetiser of scallops was the highlight. I enjoyed the lobster ravioli but scallops were seasoned & cooked to...

The refurb was certainly plush with a 22ct gold leaf ceiling as a central point. The service was excellent as usual with Stephane buzzing about ensuring all was up to scratch. The food was, as usual, excelent and well presented. A restaurant with a well deserved reputation and well worth a visit. The lunch time set menu leaves this upmarket... More
