Fantastic fish and chips

This is the first place we have come to in Dublin, and I hope the rest of our meals are as good. Had margaritas (will have Guinness soon!) and they were great and the meal was even better. Service was great - helpful and relaxed.

was told by a local about the Pifko and we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, Czech and Slovak beers and the standard of service, mainly by a young waitress called Zuzana. This young lady is a great ambassador for her countries produce and culture,also giving good advice about the area. I would certainly use the... More

Extensive beer and Czech lager menu. Home cooked food. Friendly staff. Unpretentious. Not tourist-y despite being by the river Liffey

This place is a real find - authentic Czech/Central European food, and of course fabulous beer. When you are tired of the Guinness, come in for some Czech beer on tap.

Food good Had Ribeye and my wife had Chicken Burger very nice. They were very busy with a party that was in so slight delay in service but were very apologetic about it. There really wasn't that much of a delay

We had lunch here and couldn't believe how empty it was. We had the Club Sandwich and chips with a Coke at it was€20+. For Dublin, probably not that much above the norm, but it was just so average. Crispy bacon being stringy and fatty and not crispy is probably the biggest let down. Hard to rate atmosphere as we... More

Thank you for your review. We try to make each of our meals special. The bread for the dinner sandwich is from local bakery and it's served with hand cut chips. I can see why stringy bacon can lead to disappointment and will point it out to the chef. We hope that you will give us another try in the... More
