€31 to €50
Contemporary French
It is difficult to define exactly what l’Gueuleton means but the words ‘feast’, ‘food’, ‘family’, ‘friends’ and of course ‘wine’ help us to understand a concept that is inherently French. Since 2004 l’Gueuleton has served French Bistro cuisine at its finest. Combining quality Irish produce with French flair, l’Gueuleton offers a fantastic menu, matched with a perfectly balanced selection of wines.

Situated on the ground floor of the old Fade Street Tenements l’Gueuleton is a combination of exposed red brick walls, industrial beams, copper ceilings and wood floors.

    Exceptional - I was on a work trip and had a precious day off - they found me an outdoor table even though I had no booking and made efforts to let me keep it the whole afternoon so I could enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and read. It was heaven. I had the truffle lasagna which was absolutely incredible- I am coming back to Dublin just to have that again. One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Thank you for such a memorable afternoon x

    Amazing food, great service, great cocktails. The only thing is that it gets REALLY loud as the night progresses. Hard to chat but great vibe overall. I didn’t stay to see the restaurant turn into a dance floor.

    Relaxed atmosphere. Food cooked to perfection. Concentrated service, and friendly too. Great location. Easy to get to . Plenty of space in the restaurant. Full of diners, so the convivial atmosphere. The ideal place for a family gathering, which is what ours was. Thank you l'Gueleton, the place with the unpronouncable name.... but a big heart....

    We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. The food was at a very high level and the pint of Guinness was very good. Service was welcoming, friendly and efficient. We did not know what to expect and all 3 of us expressed delight at the end of the night. Like most restaurants nowadays the noise level was very high because there are no noise absorbent materials/furniture in the place. This is almost universal now as interior designers never seem to understand that there are hundreds and thousands of people with poor hearing. Most of the noise was from large groups who naturally speak louder than normal to talk to their fellow diners. However it was made worse by the loud music. In fairness our server turned it down considerably immediately when asked. Later someone turned it up again. We find that happens regularly in almost every place, it’s really annoying but another server immediately fixed that when asked. I must also say that I had requested a corner table online because 2 of us have hearing difficulties and when we arrived that had been provided. So a great place, really enjoyable but like most others the noise is very uncomfortable.

    Great staff and service. The food was excellent. Steak tartare was really good, mind you the quail egg was a bit overdone and I like it a small bit spicier. The Guinea fowl was very tasty and a great choice. Sit outside and watch the world walk by.

    Except for the tartar, the other plates weren't that good. Over noise inside with a birthday table behind that, we can't talk and they take the plates out without asking if we have finished.

    Really lovely experience. The Front of House and wait staff were fantastic and super attentive. One of our party was delayed and we had ordered a pint of Guinness which had sat out for them - the Front of House replaced it free of charge. The food was delicious all round and good value for money!

    Amazing brunch! A great choice for Covid-19 era Dublin, as there is an abundance of outdoor seating available. I had the eggs royal which was just delicious, I also enjoyed my Aperol spritz. The rest of our group of four all loved it too. Cocktails not cheap but overall, not bad value. Will be coming back!

    We had a very enjoyable dinner there. The food was simply wonderful, excellent quality and generous portions. Great cocktails to start - distinctive house 'takes' on traditional cocktail recipes (yum) - and wonderful prawns as a starter for me, and my husband loved the Duck Confit croquets (he didn't share lol!) For main course, he ordered a steak and chips and I delved into the seafood pot, which was divine. Accompanied by a wonderful french red ... oh, ok, two bottles of red. We highly recommend L'Gueleton, great food and the team are amazing. Please support local restaurants in this difficult time, we'll be back when we can. In the meantime, take care guys and keep on keeping on!
