Description: 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.

“Overrated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2008

Went there with colleagues. The wine list was interesting. They had a good german draught beer (Krombacher) which is a big plus. Nice asian waiter. The food was ok I guess, but not really great. I have to admit that we had a set menu (Salmon or Chicken - one as boring as the other) which was chosen by somebody who really isn't an expert on food... Still I have to say that everything was overpriced big time.

Disappointing. Some of the food was very good, some not. Found the service annoying -- rushed and constantly stopping by the table to pour more wine/interrupt

Really disappointing. The standard of the food really did not match the high price tag. The food was f a much better quality several years ago when they first moved to this premises. However the service was impeccable.
