Had a wonderful meal with great service. Would highly recommend restaurant - the only drawback is the acoustics. Once the room filled up, it became impossible to hear anyone at our own table. Still, the food made it worth it.

For me, it's the first time that I get excellent food that really doesn't matter. This is not a restaurant where you eat. It's more a place where you show off and burn your money. I got out of the restaurant, after dinner, and I was really starving. The dishes were almost empty. No food. Seriously: No. Food. I ordered... More

Had a delicious meal in this very friendly restaurant , the presentation was outstanding but the quality of the food was exceptional, what a quaint way the delicious cheesecake was presented. If in Dublin don't miss this super restaurant.

I am late writing this review - it is quite some time since my husband and I visited. Still, I feel that the Pig's Ear deserves a good review. The food was delicious, staff members were friendly and helpful. A tad pricey, but a lovely treat!

I had lunch here over the summer and it was very tasty. The service was ok but the guy seemed new. The food was very good and would like to go back again.

The food was tasty but I couldn't believe how small the vegetarian portions were - and for the same price as the meat options!! Vegetarians still require food to live and when going out and paying for a meal ought to be provided with sustenance just as their meat-eating friends are. Given that the ingredients in a vegetarian meal are... More

We had just finished visiting the National Gallery and were looking for a place to eat lunch. By chance we found the Pig's Ear a few blocks away. It was somewhat hidden on the second floor of an unassuming building. Imagine our surprise at finding the high quality of the food it offered. The dishes were delicious, especially the seafood...

I had read good reviews but I was it expecting the level of food and service I received!! You were made feel like a VIP with their attention to detail in the service!! We were there for the early bird menu and although I ordered the chicken which I normally avoid in restaurants it was cooked to perfection! The value... More

I was able to call in and get a last minute table for two here on a Thursday night. We got the pea and goat cheese salad, tuna tartare, seared cod, beef cheek, and cheesecake. We also got 4 cocktails total and spent 125 euro. Everything was incredible! After dinner we tried to choose what our favorite item was and... More

Behind the bright pink door is a very cute restaurant with creative and fresh food. The service is attentive and subtle. For starters we enjoyed a fresh pea salad (with currants, a colorful touch and great flavor combination) and a crab salad. Our fish mains, salmon and cod, were perfectly cooked. A fine cheese plate and tasty little “tea cake”... More
