“worth a visit”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

My husband and I went for a birthday meal and the meal lived up to expectations. Similar experience to other diner reviews even down to the chocolate candle lit cake so that says something about consistency of the quality. Sommelier was knowledgeable and happily helped with pairings. The cheese board is impressive and truly lovely! There are a lot of lovely restaurants in the area but for a special occasion this was a great place to go.

Wow.....it's hard to describe how amazing the food was here. We had the set lunch menu and got our server to pair our wines. The experience was amazing from start to finish and will definitely be returning!

“A must!”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We had dinner at Patrick Guilbaud while staying at the Merrion.
We had the gastronomic menu with seven courses that the Chef choses for you. Each course was really excellent, original, and so tasty. Oyster tastes oyster but still you also smell every other flavour included in the preparation, same for the lobster. Lamb was a dream!
This is one of the very best dinners we had in the last five years and we believe patrick Guilbaud is not so far from some of the 3 stars we know.
Service is good but could be improved. The place was fully booked which makes it very busy and one could wish to have more space between the tables in order to increase the comfort and match it better with the excellence of the food.
I hope we can be back.

€50 Lunch menu - a gourmet bargain and such a nice way to spend Saturday afternoon with some dear friends. Bottle of Prosecco in the ante room before lunch was a cut above what you would buy in the off licence or supermarket, but then is was Patrick Guilbaud's! Lunch and wine ordered as Prosecco was sipped. Ordered a German Pinot Noir following a sort discussion with sommelier who assured me of its quality. I had my doubts, but of course he was right. Delicious wine! Starter had a small fillet of mackerel, not sure how is was marinated, but was sensational. This oily fish has a tendency to 'repeat' in my digestive system but not this time. Main course was perfectly cooked lamb. Deserts could have been a tad more interesting, but what great value for money at a two star michelin restaurant. Staff were attentive but not intrusive, very nice bunch of people.
