Fodor's Review

It can be hard to re-create that classic bistro feel outside France, but this intimate spot at the heart of busy Dublin has managed to get the mix of bustle and tranquillity just right. A mix of warm brick walls dotted with black-and-white snaps of French film stars from the 1950s and wood paneling with tongue-in-cheek French movie posters keeps the vibe informal. A quick glance at the gilt-framed, mirrored menu reveals that this kitchen is all about rich, evocative French fare—two winners are the duck confit and the pan-fried hake. The rhubarb crème brûlée is a clever Irish take on the Gallic standard. Lunch is a great value, and keep an eye out for adventurous plats du jour and lively wine list.
