The 8 Best Restaurants in Dublin


Cuisine: Irish with French influence

Style / Ambiance: L’Ecrivain is one the capital’s most celebrated gourmet restaurants and can be found in a gorgeous Georgian neighborhood.

Chef-owner Derry Clarke and the head chef Tom Doyle create inventive, Michelin-starred dishes and change the menu regularly to keep the ingredients seasonal. Using small, local producers, they give traditional Irish flavors a piquant French twist and the results have won the affections of many regulars. Game dishes are a specialty in season, with a menu that changes according to the produce available throughout the year, and the superb wine list is updated frequently. With an airy, blond wood interior, the atmosphere is light and relaxed, and you’ll find the staff some of the friendliest in town.
