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 the best meals we have ever had

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... read 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

I visited here for a special occasion a few months ago in a party of 20. The restaurant itself is lovely inside, and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. I went for the scallops to start which was cooked to perfection. I chose the fillet of beef for main, also fantastic. Lovely breads also to begin! I wouldn't be... More

We were given a gift voucher for One Pico, but I had previously been to this top market restaurant, so I knew how good the food was and had high expectations. These expectations were met and exceeded. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table, nicely located in the corner beside the window. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere... More

Having made a random choice based on the colour of the paint in the photo on a website we booked One Pico for dinner on a last minute business trip for my partner to Dublin. Things looked promising when an amuse bouche of a perfectly shaped miniature brick of food gras with a perfectly pink piece of Rhubarb was presented,... More

I have eaten here before off the a la carte menu and, while the food is very good, the prices are relatively high. However the set menu is great value at €45 for 3 courses with no reduction in food quality. The beetroot starter was original, delicious and also looked great. The pork belly was cooked to perfection and my... More

This restaurant is located down a lane off Molesworth Street. It's a little off the beaten track. I was surprised that it was not full on Saturday night. However the service was very good and friendly. I was disappointed with the scallops as a starter. It was very small and the salad served with it appeared to be a little... More

This resteraunt isn't cheap: €10 - €15 for starters and about €35 for the main courses but the quality of the food is exceptional and woth the price for a special event. The beetroot and goats cheese starter was fabulous, as was the duck. Good quality wine is available from €30 a bottle. The staff is friendly and helpfull and... More

This is THE place to take someone special for dinner or a client for a business lunch. Great food, staff, location and service. Been there many times and will return again and again.
