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

For us the main question in any review would be "will you return" and in this case the answer is a definite no. French Onion soup was what I considered salty and watery but the best of what we had to eat. We each ordered the ribeye steaks at 31 euro each about 10oz weight. (Retail cost in my local butcher 21 euro per kilo). Both steaks came undercooked one to the point of being inedible. Whilst we were not charged for that we would have preferred to have a meal we could enjoy and happy to pay for it. After all a steak has to be one of the easiest things to cook and so if they can't get that right then what hope. Really disappointed especially as it was recommended by a friend but sadly typical of what we now experience on Dublin restaurants. The good times don't always mean good things.

Hi
The overall was okay, the food was nice and great ambiance but the service was very poor to be honest.

We have been to L'Gueuleton a number of time over the years and have always enjoyed the experience however we were extremely disappointed on out last visit. When we arrived the waiter pointed in the direction of where we were to be seated instead of showing us to the table. The service was really poor, the waiter again seemed very disinterested and didn't communicate very much at all with us, we didn't get everything we ordered. The quality of food we did get was below standard for which we mentioned to one of the other waiters (they deducted it from our bill but I would have rather got decent food and paid for it) When we went to the count to pay our bill the lady who took the payment never made any commented on whether or not we enjoyed the food, thank you, etc.
Will we return?....I think not.

Food was really incredible. It was very busy so the service took a bit too long. I will go back though.

Very pleasant evening with lovely food and helpful, friendly staff. My only quibble was that my Eton Mess was deconstructed and when I asked that it be mashed up I had to do it myself!

Second time to try for brunch. Food is really great but service is shocking. Both times found staff arrogant and like they couldn't be bothered if we were there or not. Pity as food was good but won't be back.

Great service, fantastic food and outside space (peaceful but still great for people watching). Extra gold star for not seeing one Instagram obsessed dinner (although the food and the location were worthy). Will be back for sure!

I always find l'Gueuleton a very pleasant option when we are in Dublin for a day. While I might only eat here once a year, twice at most, the memory of the beautiful meal brings me back again. This time we opted for the mini dessert with coffee. Am inclined to think I will revert to full dessert next time. Perhaps that is due to taste of goat's cheese on cheesecake. Service very attentive and was delighted to be seated in the brightness of the window area. A most pleasant two hours.

We we able to get a reservation for Saturday evening through Open Table. We were greeted at the door and seated within a few minutes at the best table in restaurant for 2 people (quiet and at the window). The service and food were outstanding; steak and frites. It was a wonderful meal and very nice experience. We would definitely return when we return Dublin.

Nice lunch, food was nice value not so great. I had asked to have a nice table as my sister travelled home from Oz to get married and this was her pre wedding lunch with myself and bridemaids and mother. We were shown to a random table which obviously wasn’t reserved for us as it was in the darkest dullest area of the restaurant beside the kitchen. Disappointing! Asked to be moved and they told us it would be another wait. Wouldn’t go back really.

I came here for brunch a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it so decided to give it another go.
Service was slow and we were seated outside. It took us to call a member of staff to come over and take our order. Our food arrived before our drinks and we had to ask again for water.
While sitting outside was nice enough, we were hassled for money a couple of times while trying to eat. No staff presence really made the whole thing feel like we were just put outside out of the way.
The wait staff we interacted with were nice and they declared as we went inside to pay our bill that they were short staffed as someone called in sick which is fair enough, but it affected our experience as a customer. I’d reconsider going back but request a table indoors.

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.
