€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.

    I had not been to the restaurant for a number of years and I really wonder why. After my trip there last Saturday I was impressed, it was just like the old days, fine food nice ambience and most of all very friendly staff. Hopefully I'll be back soo again. Great night there.

    This is a real crowd pleaser restaurant. Lovely cheese board to start. Vegetarian lasagne & Guinea fowl for main, both lovely. Potato & turnip mash was divine. Crème brûlée dessert. All excellent portion sizes. Great wine. All the staff are attentive, friendly and extremely accommodating. Also, it’s warm and cosy!

    Excellent overall . Delightful staff ! Perfect gap between courses which is often lacking in restaurants. The food we had Starters of beetroot barley risotto and steak tartare were delicious. Our mains Ribeye steak frites and Guinea fowl were beautifully presented and cooked exactly as ordered. We had desserts of Aperol cheesecake and a chocolate tart which were fantastic. We had the Malbec to accompany our lunch which was well rounded and fruity. A little on the expensive side for lunch but worth ever penny . Would highly recommend. We’ll definitely return

    From the outside it doesn't look great. Like a Frankie and Bennies or some sub par American chain. The reality is so much better though. Thoughtful and attentive staff and, most importantly, really really tasty food. Shall definitely visit again.

    The online menu hadn't been updated, so we were faced with a very different menu on arrival. The menu is not very extensive but I really enjoyed the beetroot barley risotto and my tuna main was done to perfection and was a great dish. My partner loved the bernaise sauce more than the steak but was impressed with the overall experience too

    We ordered a cocktail on arrival and they tried to take our food order. We asked could we have our cocktails first bc we wanted wine with the meal. Waitress told us that the kitchen was very busy so they’d like if we put our food order in now. We agreed but said could you please bring the cocktails quickly then. Waitress was quite rude but we wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt seen as it was probably stressful right before Christmas. Cocktails arrived 5 mins later and then we got our food approx 5 mins after that which was very annoying seen as we specifically said we wanted wine with our main. We both had the gnocchi which was nice but most of cauliflower bits were still cold in the middle. Only one veggie choice for the starter and the main and nothing vegan. Nobody came to see how the food was or ask us how we’re getting on. We had to sit with dirty plates and empty glasses for about 10 mins or so. We just got the bill and left. Both of us intended to have at least two cocktails and wine and probably dessert but instead were were in and out within an hour (table booked for 7:30 and already had paid the bill at 8:27). Nobody asked us how we enjoyed it or for any feedback. Went to fade street social after and the staff couldn’t have been nicer. Will never eat in this establishment again.

    We hadn’t been to l’Gueuleton in ages and thankfully we were not disappointed. The menu is simple to maneuver and the wine list is straightforward…the French onion soup was on the special board much to my wife’s delight. Beware to leave plenty of room for the crème brûlée as it’s a big one, 2 spoons mandatory! We were there on the 23rd December and it was the perfect place to center our trip to town. Top marks and we’ll be back next year. Peadar & Aine.

    As always our Meal was top class, Favourite choice French onion soup never fails- delicious as ever. Despite being one of the busiest days of the year our waiter was super, never rushed us and had time toe a chat and a laugh. Sine bass was fab as was the venison. Thanks again for all

    First time back in probably 8 years so it never occurred to me to enquire about if it had changed in any big way since then but it has essentially transformed into a confused music bar, confused in that it still wants the paying restaurant crowd and also the young (18-21) drinking/ clubbing crowd. Loud music in the restaurant so it is not a place to go to chat with friends over dinner which is what we were there for. Very disappointing indeed. There is a bar next door to the restaurant (part of same place) and the toilets are shared between both establishments, 3 ladies loos for hundreds of patrons, total insanity, where is the sense? I had to leave and use a loo in another bar and then come back to my friends. The restaurant turns into a disco late in the evening packed full with a very young crowd, the bar was literally 4 deep, nuts. Only suitable if you are looking for a nightclub, not suitable as a restaurant.
