Producers at TV3 are looking for diners to take part in the new series of The Restaurant.

If you fancy yourself a foodie, being cooked a three-course meal by a celebrity while dining in Marco Pierre White's Courtyard Bar & Grill in Donnybrook might be up your street.

The Restaurant will see six celebrities become head chefs over six weeks, as they attempt to produce a top-class, three-course menu of their choice. The menu will then be judged by the critics table where a possible five star rating will be up for grabs. 

During meals, the celebrities will get instant feedback in the kitchen from remote cameras and microphones covering the dining room.

The identity of the celebrities will remain a secret to the diners and the critics until service is over, at which point the celebrity will step out of the kitchen and face the critics in front of the diners.

Marco Pierre White, Tom Doorley and a new guest critic each week will form the judging panel.

John Healy will return as maitre'D, with Stephen McAllister, Gary O’Hanlon and Louise Lennox taking their places in the kitchen.

The third series of The Restaurant will go into production this January and will air on TV3 in early 2017.

To apply, log onto The closing date for applications is midnight on Tuesday the 27 of December. Diners must be available for one of the record dates, available on the website.
