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 it’s finest. Combining quality Irish produce with French flair, l’Gueuleton offers a fantastic menu, matched with a perfectly balanced selection of old world 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. Candle light and music thats far from background help create our interpretation on the french bistro.



The l'Gueuleton bar & terrace which opened in 2016 serves everything from classic cocktails and wine to a selection of 55 local and international Gin's. With resident DJs Cian Murphy and Robbie Kitt playing a mix of disco, house and garage every Friday, Saturday a

There wasn't a vegan option on the menu but the chef cooked up a very nice dish for me. Great atmosphere and very pleasant service.

Delicious food, good atmosphere, good value.
We were a group of 5 friends meeting to catch up over lunch, and everything that each of us ordered was lovely! The selection included Croque Monsieur, Gambas salad, Vegetarian Filo Pie, Steak Sandwich. The fries with béarnaise are out of this world.
Wines were, of course, very nice. The house wine is great and keenly priced.
We all opted for the "coffee with tiny selection of sweets" and this was really lovely too.
Staff were very helpful.

Dinner was absolutely devine, we both had the goats cheese and fig starter. Best starter ever, I had the pork belly and my husband had the best steak ever (his words) and we share the strawberry eton mess (its a must) and lovely wine.

Happening spot.... the food was good and server was friendly but it was really slow... both the appetizers and the entrees took a long (long) time to come out. The wine list was okay but not good for an enthusiast.

Went on a Sunday evening at 7pm. Restaurant did not have many guests but the music was pumping, and was like eating in a nightclub. If you are looking for a nice relaxing meal and a catch up with old friends, do not eat here. No reason to force guests to shout over the music to be heard.

We had a spectacularly good meal here. My partner had the french onion soup to start - as good as any I've had in France and far better than anywhere else. My starter was a symphony of crisply coated duck egg with a deliciously oozing yolk on a bed of super-fresh frisee lettuce and shards of crunchy prosciutto with asparagus spears and a slick of freshly made mayo. I couldn't fault it as a combination of harmonizing flavours. For mains I had guinea fowl with a wild mushroom sauce and roasted celeriac which was again pitch-perfect and with just the right amount of seasoning. My partner's steak was one of the best he's had :cooked to a spot-on 'medium' and served with skin-on chips and a choice of sauces from which he had the green peppercorn. Desserts would have been an indulgence too far but a quick glance at the menu confirmed that anyone with a sweet tooth would have been in for a treat. Service was great, the atmosphere was good but the star here is the food. Highly recommended.

The lady with dark hair on till the /Bar area was super accommodating when we asked to move tables because our son is autistic and he didn’t fit in the high chair anymore , it was our first dining experience not having him sitting in a high chair , which is a big deal for us , it was so stress free . A big thank you

I eat in this restaurant fairly regularly and find the food delicious with a cosy, warm atmosphere.
I brought overseas friends here and was a little disappointed. One meal was outstanding while the other two were just ok. Not up to the usual standard.
Normally, when I am there all there is is the noise of people chatting but on this occasion music was so loud we had difficulty talking.

Unfortunately the service was very poor and our table couldn’t hear eachother or chat. It was my dads birthday and we wanted a special night but it was far from it. Really disappointed and the service was really slow and Forgot about us quite a lot. The pork belly was very fatty and the soup wasn’t great. I don’t think I’d be back or recommend it. Really sorry to give negative feedback.

The drinking glasses for the water were dirty. My friend found a hair in her food & my other friend found meat in her salad. We sent one dish back but didn’t mention the other incidents because we didn’t want to make a fuss. I’ve been before & really enjoyed the food although I always find the service challenging... it’s always difficult to get servers attention, but the food is usually good and good value for money. However this time was disappointing & embarrassing as my friends were in town for the weekend & I picked this restaurant but soon regretted it. Maybe they were just having a bad day ....

Food is nice but pricey for what it is. The lighting is so poor that all around us people were using the lights on their phones to read menus! Obvious that it is selling drink is main priority in this premises and once meal was over we were asked to move and blaring music meant we left. Not the lovely restaurant it once was. Now just another tourist late night drinking venue.

Haven’t been for ages; still as good as before but increasing noise from cocktail bar has moved it to a different (more buzzy) dining experience. Duck main dish was excellent; standard of cooking is better than some much higher priced venues.

I went to l'Gueuleton many years ago. The waiter was awfully impolite and frankly left a bad impression. I’m glad I gave it another try. When I booked I asked for a quiet table. I’m hard of hearing and sometimes most restaurants they don’t even entertain my request. The restaurant manager was very well determined to give me the best table and offered to try and change if needed. However, we ended up sitting outside as it was a lovely spring day. The food was amazing. My mind was blown away by the simplicity of the menu and the sophistication of flavours. I will go back. This has the best restaurant in Dublin right now.

I booked this table specifically for the great value early bird i’d Had there before only to be told they had stopped doing the early bird! My friends found their rib eye steak very fatty and the waiter didn’t even comment on this when my friend returned her plate with the steak barely eaten and at a cost of €31! The service was mediocre and it felt like no-one really cared.

Great atmospheric bistro in the heart of D2. We had lunch. Brilliant steak sandwich with frittes and garlic mayo, ant the plate de jour was wonderful duck, with a lovely glass of red wine. Service was OK, and the restaurant has a great buzz, and watching the foot traffic out the window in the heart of Dublin was terrific. Mix of tourists and locals set the scene.

Prices have gone up, menu pared back and food is no longer as good as it was. I had a mediocre lamb rump. Our server was extremely rude in pressuring us to leave at 8pm and, when booking slot there was no limit in terms of time. All around us were empty tables. He brought the bill down and stood at the table silently until we made payment. It was previously a favourite spot but no longer...
