A truely reliable and good humoured lunchtime venue. The service is, as always, exceptionally professional yet a friendly mix of supurb and friendly. It is not intrusive.....and is most very pleasant. The food is composed to perfection...excellently presented...by impressive staff...and wonderful flavours. The skinny chips have unfortunately grown just a tad 'fat', but notwithstanding that, the lunchtime experience is worth... More

Look, I hate Irish food. When I arrived here on Sunday, I was anticipating losing at least 5 pounds because my first few meals here were woefully inadequate. And then I discovered One Pico. It was, in a word, delicious. The room is small, but everyone is quite friendly and did I mention the food is terrific? (I had the... More

Had dinner here recently. The starter was extremely small and the main took forever. Dessert pretty ok but will not be rushing back.

We have visited One Pico over several years for lunch and dinner (even having Bertie Ahern come to the next table on one occasion some years ago when Taoiseach!). Last week we again had an excellent and memorable lunch with our son and daughter in Law who live and work in the vicinity of the city. Always a pleasant greeting,... More

Wonderful meal, lousy location in an alley, with rodents seen running along the buildings. However, once we entered this venue we were greeted by a most professional staff, wonderful food and drinks and desserts. The 4 of us enjoyed the pre fixe dinner, which was your only choice. We started with a foie gras, 2 of the seared scallops, and... More

Really enjoyed dinner here - the food was fabulous - I remember every morsel a month on. Lovely intimate ambiance. Service was pleasant. The side street location does it no justice - go inside - give yourself a treat!!!!

I was introduced to this restaurant by a Dublin based friend. innovative menu ,comprehensive wine list and pleasant décor. Despite dining on a busy Saturday evening, tables were well spaced and acoustics very good.. The presentation and taste of the food was excellent . The staff were attentive and friendly without being subservient.

A sizable group of us visited One Pico to celebrate an event. The restaurant. Perhaps we caught them on an off night but the menu and execution were very disappointing. was not overly busy and the service was what you would expect. The menu was very disappointing. Either there was a sale on beetroot or the chef was infatuated with... More

Visited this restaurant as part of a corporate event on culture night in Dublin. The food was local, fresh and wonderfully prepared. The staff were very friendly and knowledgable about the source of the produce. The restaurant was well decorated and our evening of traditional Irish music was well received by the corporate guests , particularly the Italian group.

Had a wonderful evening dining and listening to traditional Irish music at One Pico. It was booked out for a corporate event I attended and was so impressed with the quality of food and service from the staff. A lovely relaxed, warm environment to eat locally sourced & beautifully prepared food, with nice accompanying wines and drinks. Would go back... More

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.
