4.8

The name Patrick Guilbaud is spoken with reverence amongst Dublin foodies, and rightly so.

This is the first restaurant in the country to be awarded two Michelin stars. Sharing a Georgian townhouse with [node:120196], the setting is distinguished and utterly luxurious. The walls of the restaurant feature a collection of stunning original works of modern Irish art and that in itself is worth dining here for.

Food and drink

Michelin cooking by a renowned French chef, the focus is on game and seafood and the wine, of course, is superb. Critics say this restaurant is overpriced. I feel the perfect Michelin experience is well worth it.

Recommended dishes

The duck is heavenly. Every dish will be a memorable experience. 

Ambience

Formal and quite 'posh' - the overall mood is calm, some might say staid, but it depends on the diner. 

Service

Immaculate but formal. There's a certain French charm to the service that makes it endearing at the same time. 

Location

It's under the Merrion Hotel on Merrion Street. 

Price advice

Seasonal tasting menus, such as an Autumn tasting menu with four courses for 85 euros, offer the best value.

Tables to book

Request a table by the wall to have a bird's eye view of original Irish works of art.
