Restaurant: L'Gueuleton

As this week is Dine in Dublin week I thought I should check out one of the participating restaurants I haven't previously been to. L'Gueuleton is (of course) a French restaurant, a bistro, and is located on Fade St.

I went along at lunchtime and had the Plat du Jour; in this instance, grilled cod with a mix of vegetables - very much the classic French approach of somehow preparing dishes that are superficially simple but subtly excellent. With a pleasant glass of Merlot included this was well worth the €13.50.

Service was friendly and fast. The decor was standard for a bistro, which is fine by me as I quite like it. The music was French and just right for the setting; at times the music was replaced by French language (talk) radio, adding to the ambience without being irritating or intrusive. The restaurant was busy but not overcrowded.

Overall, a fine restaurant and well worth visiting.
