Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud ★★

21 Merrion Street Upper, Dublin 2

The Michelin verdict: “A truly sumptuous restaurant in an elegant Georgian house; the eponymous owner has run it for over 35 years. Accomplished, original cooking uses luxurious ingredients and mixes classical French cooking with modern techniques. Dishes are well-crafted and visually stunning with a superb balance of textures and flavours”

 

L’Ecrivain 

109A Baggot Street Lower, Dublin 2
The Michelin verdict: “A well-regarded restaurant with an attractive terrace, a glitzy bar and a private dining room which screens live kitchen action. The refined, balanced menu has a classical foundation whilst also displaying touches of modernity; the ingredients used are superlative. Service is structured yet has personality.”

 

Chapter One 

18-19 Parnell Square North, Dublin 1
The Michelin verdict: “Good old-fashioned Irish hospitality meets with modern Irish cooking in this stylish basement restaurant beneath the Writers Museum. The series of interconnecting rooms have an understated elegance and striking bespoke art hangs on the walls. Boldly flavoured dishes showcase produce from local artisan producers.”

 

The Greenhouse 

21 Dawson Street, Dublin 2
The Michelin verdict: “Stylish restaurant with turquoise banquettes and smooth service. Menus include a good value set lunch, midweek set and tasting menus and a 5 course ‘Surprise’ on Friday and Saturday evenings. Accomplished, classically based cooking has stimulating flavour combinations and creative modern overtones.”

 

Heron & Grey 

Blackrock Market, 19a Main Street, Blackrock, Co Dublin
The Michelin verdict: “A homely, candlelit restaurant in a bohemian suburban market; it’s personally run by Heron – who leads the service – and Grey, who heads the kitchen. Irish ingredients feature in intensely flavoured dishes which are full of contrasting textures and tastes. The set 5 course dinner menu changes every two weeks.”
