Firstly: the food was excellent. Not very special, but excellent. Reception with a glass of champagne was good, extremely formal. We went for the chef's surprise menu. Which was excellent but not very special. Basic flavours and classical combinations. Can't go wrong there. First and second course, followed each other rather quickly, so asked for a bit more time in... More

Had a very pleasurable evening at Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud in November 2016. The restaurant was recently refurbished and the decor is wonderful in my opinion. It is opulent with a modern and slightly quirky twist. Gorgeous art on the walls. Relaxing lighting. The service was top notch. We are not in the market for the most expensive wine but the... More

This visit to Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud for lunch was, as always, a delight. For anyone who appreciates the art of food a meal here is always an experience to relish. My friend and I enjoyed a selection of dishes covering a wide spectrum of ingredients - hake, veal etc and unsurprisingly, the extensive cheeseboard proved irresistible after desert ( Yes,... More

Of course we had to try the tasting menu. Did not disappoint. We also had the wine pairing - which was not fantastic but ok. Did not put a damper on our experience. One really cool thing that they did was during the cheese tasting course they matched 3 different wines with 3 different cheeses you chose. Would definitely go... More

Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud has been on my "bucket list" for many years. Had lunch through work in December and did not disappoint. A memorable experience.

We recently attended a Christmas dinner at this fabulous venue. The service, food, atmosphere and entire experience was as special as we had anticipated. Top notch and deserving of the top rating they have earned. Certainly wish I would have taken pictures of the food as it was beautifully presented, but glad I enjoyed the experience without being distracted by... More

This is a wonderful pleasant place in which to dine. The staff are extremely professional, courteous and "invisible". They are there when you need them but not in your face all the time. As an experience it is fab but the food is just good, not fantastic but nothing wrong with it at the same time. Dishes are perfectly presented... More

Needless to say it's a formal restaurant. Friendly greeting from waiter and owner and offered house champagne which was excellent. The lobby area is beautiful with art works. The restaurant is attached to the Merrion Hotel. The building is beautiful red brick over 150 years old. We were seated at a nice round table with just enough space between each... More
