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.

Returned recently for lunch and was not disappointed. Only one table remained vacant on a Tuesday which is evidence of the high standard maintained and possibly allied to an improvement in the economy.

After a long absence we decided to return to One Pico for a birthday celebration. We were not disappointed. This a a good value restaurant with great food and great service. The clementine soufflé was melt in the mouth, I would go back just for this! The sommelier was particularly good and he was extremely helpful in choosing a nice... More

This restaurant was recommended by some friends and it was a brilliant end to my birthday celebration! It is a special place to go as a couple or with a few friends. The food is refined and original and the service friendly and efficient!

One Pico came highly recommended to us by multiple friends in Ireland and they were absolutely spot on. The restaurant is located on side street and is very non-descriptive but once inside you are treated a fabulous experience. The wait staff are very attentive and very knowledgeable. They have a somewhat limited dinner menu but trust me everything we tried... More

Excellent menu in terms of choice. Food was fresh and cooked to perfection. My only criticism was the service was a very slow, our vegetables arrived well after the main arrived, and there were very long gaps between courses. Indeed it took over an our from our order being placed to our starters arriving. However, when the food did arrive,... More

The restaurant was very quiet, for lunch in early January. Food and service was excellent.Two course lunch headline cost quickly rises with supplements, side dishes etc. Wine is heavily marked up.

We went in for the early bird menu (2 courses for €29). A bottle of red & bottle of white split between the five of us, the oxtsil, risotto & goat cheese starters were all solid, as were the mains. While we found our servers to be either very attentive or completely absent, the food is of extremely high quality.... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant. It was an invitation to a birthday celebration. We were in a private room upstairs with approx 35 people sitting for dinner. Everything ran smoothly due to the fantastic staff. They were efficient, pleasant and helpful. The food was served quickly once we were seated after the drinks reception, and despite the... More

Came here for a celebration while visiting Dublin, both the food and the service were excellent. My venison was perfect and my wife had the beef which was also great, really hard to fault this place. I expected it to be a lot more expensive than it was.
