Over at Le Bon Crubeen, diners can recline amid the darkened wood décor, elegant armchairs and warm candlelight, happily confident that the chefs will prepare a delightful dinner remembered for all the right reasons. The selection of French fashioned cuisine is composed of steaks and ribs where the meat drops off the bone, vegetables at the precisely correct juncture between crunchy and tender, and potatoes baked, mashed or grilled to delectable perfection. Regional favourites, like duck’s liver parfait, also prove popular. Beverages too, from the superb selection of white and red wines to the local Irish whiskies and spirits, embody fine choice.
Ideally situated within walking distance of Dublin’s city centre and nightlife, Le Bon Crubeen shines for its impeccably talented staff who often feature in diner testimonials. Engaged but unobtrusive, prompt but courteous, the waiters here attract praise while the reasonable prices – ranging to a mere 25 euros a head for three courses – keep the place popular and vibrant every day of the week.
