Just off of St Stephen's Green One Pico is one of Dublin's hottest dining destinations. But with acclaimed chef Eammon O'Reilly at the helm and a number of accolades including; "2010 Dublin Chef of The Year" by The Irish Restaurant Awards, but most importantly (in our opinion) a Toptable Gold award. One Pico isn't all about fashion and being seen in the latest hot spot. Exceptionally good service is the ideal accompaniment to stunning modern classic food all beautifully prepared on the premises and a simple, sophisticated décor where intimacy is guaranteed. A monthly changing menu ensures you'll never grow bored of One Pico's impressive seasonal cooking with its homely Irish twist.

One of the best meals I have had anywhere. Food, ambience, service all excellent. Worth the fairly high cost for a special occasion.

Off the Main Street this lovely little restaurant provided excellent food with personable and friendly service. Being Sunday, only a three course set menu was available. We started with barley risotto with sweetbreads and goat cheese with beet root. Both were excellent. Our choices for the main course were the salmon and the hake. Again both were excellent.

I have been there several times and never wrote a review but really food is absolutely top notch! This is an excellent restaurant. Lunch for two courses at €24 is pretty unbeatable worldwide. Michelin star quality.

One of my ex-work collegues suggested we dine at One Pico, a booking is essential as it is very popular and it is very unlikely that you would get a table if you just turned up. The service and staff were excellent and the menu and wine list offered a lot of options with a large number of seafood options... More

Had lunch here first Saturday in May which was a horrendously wetband miserable day. I had said when booking one of us was gluten free as was told no problem and remind the waiter when we arrive. I forgot of course and the waiter and the waiter reminded me when we took our seats! We had beetroot to start. Hake... More

Finished work at 8pm, day off on Saturday. Decided to treat myself after a busy day. Arrived just after 8, busy evening. Opted for Scallops followed by Duck and finished off with the Valrhona chocolate dessert. Asked Arnau, the waiter, to select wines appropriate to the dishes which he selected beautifully. Of course, what does one have with rich chocolate... More

We had not been there for some time, but the experience was very good. The two course dinner pre-theatre was excellent. perfect quality, size and presentation. Especially the pork belly was just a picture and tasted very good. the brown sugar tart as dessert was unique.

By any standards this was one of the best meals we have had anywhere. It is expensive but well worth it. The food, the service and the ambience are top class. I had scallops to start and duck for mains and both were exquisite. My wife had pork belly for mains and chocolate fondant for dessert and they were delightful.... More

It's not easy to find a good restaurant in the center of Dublin. Most places are glorified pubs with the typical Irish dishes. Nice for one or two times, but then you want something better. One Pico offered that change and we had the best dinner of our whole trip. The dishes are all well prepared and delicious, the service... More
