Just happened upon this place one evening and decided to have dinner there, great choice. It's a Slovak/Checzh place with great food and beer from those countries. had the shnitzel and it was awesome. Service was great. Would love to go back.

I have been to Pifko many times since it opened in Dublin and have never been disappointed with anything they offer including brunch, lunch, dinner, and especially the excellent selection of of Czech/Slovak beers and spirits. I retired recently and decided to have my retirement party there on a Friday evening. There were 40+ people at the party over the... More

What a pleasant surprise! I've been to the Czech Republic many times and I love their food and beers. This pub on Ushers Quay also shows live football on multiple screens. First the beers: a good collection of Czech beers, well kept and well served. The food is typical Czech home cooking with food that sticks to your ribs. I... More

On our way back from Phoenix Park we found this Restaurant/Pub accidentally. it's on the quay of river Liffey near Guiness Storehouse. The menu ist a nice mixture of Irish and Czech dishes as like as the beers. We ate the "Special" for lunch - Vegetable soup, roast beef with excellent gravy and dumplings - very good. Note: Draught Pilsner... More

I eat here quite often and I just love the food. Portions are massive and prices are very good. So I wouldn't advice to get a starter and a main course unless you're starving and eating for 2! There's a selection of Czech traditional dishes as well as beers. Staff is very friendly and atmosphere nice.

However i would strongly urge you to give this place a chance. with its Czech dishes aplenty, Czech beer (& craft) on tap, friendly service and value for money its a must for a bunch of friends on the...
