I've looked at the preceding reviews for this restaurant, which are pretty much in the 'all good' zone and I am left wondering what happened to our experience to make it so bad? I brought a party of ten here recently for a 8pm Christmas evening, we were given the top floor private dining, which was essentially the attic as... More

Had a great dinner here on our recent visit to Dublin. Great service and really good food. Tired phasan for the first time - beautiful. The desserts in the small glass bottles was so fun! Highly recommendable!

Loved everything, and the food was amazing! Had the salmon and crab for starters, and pheasant and venison as main course.

I was provided with all the information I needed in a very quick and efficient manner. We went on to make the necessary arrangements and again everything was handled with good humour and... More

We managed to squeeze our way into The Pig's Ear, and had a simply amazing meal. Please don't take my word for it - make the effort yourself and eat there; you will not regret it.

Attended a group night out and found the restaurant overcrowded and the food somewhat overated. Would not see myself as a return customer and found the entire night a bit of a disappointment, I would also question what is described as a Christmas menu?

They know how to do it at The Pig's Ear. The menu, food, wines, atmosphere etc. is wonderful. It is definitely one of the best in Dublin !!! Looking forward to going back in 2015.
