Patrick Guilbaud Sees Profits Soar
One of the country's top restaurants, Patrick Guilbaud, saw its profits rise by €88,000 after recording its busiest year since it opened 34 years ago.
Stephane Robin, director of Ireland’s only two-Michelin star eatery restaurant, described 2014 as "fabulous for business".
Robin added that this year has seen the strong performance continue and would have been even better had the restaurant been open for lunch during weekdays.
The restaurant hasn’t served lunches since June 22 due to building works relating to the extension of the five-star Merrion Hotel which houses the multi-award winning restaurant.
"Business is getting stronger all the time," Robin said, as reported by the Irish Examiner, adding that he hopes that week-day lunches will recommence in November or December.
The accounts filed by the restaurant’s holding company, Becklock, showed accumulated profits increased by €88,039 from €356,256 to €444,295 in the 12 months to the end of August last.
The profit jump in 2014 compares to profits increasing by €80,254 in 2013.
