We had a nice meal in One Pico, but unfortunately didn't live up to our expectations. All round the starters were excellent and the service at the start of the meal was fantastic.

However there seemed to be a change in shift and the staff in the second half of the meal weren't as attentive, at the end of the meal we had to walk up to reception to get our bill. The vegetarian option was very colourless and although flavoursome was too salty, meal was not balanced. The chicken dish was superb, apart from being pink in the centre, with blood clots and grizzle, although two people had the same dish and theirs was perfect. When we pointed this out to the staff member they just fobbed us off. The wine was excellent, but they opened another bottle without letting us know that our bottle was finished, the same with the water. When you keep the bottles out of sight, you should let your clientele know this. Ended up being a much more expensive lunch than expected.

The desserts were lovely and coffee was excellent. We had a lovely lunch, but it definitely fell down in certain areas. Has a lot of potential to be better. Probably won't return because of the limited vegetarian dish.

As usual a great evening the service is always impeccable. The staff is so professional and always have a smile for you. Arnaud the somelier is a gem, if you don't know what to choose ask him... he always find something that compliment so well the food. And if you know your stuff, he is well able to talk about it too. The food was once more delicious especially the Monk Fish! Divine!
We have been coming to One Pico, for 8 years now at least once a year and we have never been disappointed by the food or the staff!
Make sure to book in advance for avoid disappointment!

We were quite disappointed with our dinner in One Pico. We were there before about 2-3 years ago on a pre-theatre menu, and I remember it was a great experience. This time we went for dinner. Everything started poorly, as we were seated next to a loud group of people. There were only 3-course set menus available, which was quite a lot for us, as we don't eat that much. The food was good, but I was expecting something better. The presentation of the dishes was fantastic. Unfortunately, the taste didn't follow on the same level. Overall, that was a good but pricey dinner. For three people with a total of 5 glasses of wine, we paid 270€ plus a tip.

The restaurant was very quiet when we were there. We were met by a very friendly gentleman who looked after us very well all night. The staff are excellent. The food was excellent also, my husband had the chicken liver parfait, which he said was the best he had ever tasted, he then had the lamb. I had the goats cheese and beetroot, which was delicious and then I had the turbot which again was faultless.
We had a side order of hispi cabbage which was very tasty bit extremely difficult to cut ( I had to borrow my husbands steak knife to cut through the stalks!)
The wine list is quite expensive.
Great meal.

A last minute booking and was surprised to have gotten a table for 4 on a Saturday night. Arrived on time and were greeted by very friendly staff , we were brought to our table and from there on the night was most enjoyable . The food was excellent from start to finish as was the service . I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back . 5 star.

We were a party of three who enjoyed lunch in One Pico. We were made very welcome from the minute we steped in the door. Beautifully presented dishes and very imaginative. The beetroot merangues have since become a talking point! Wines too were very good suggestions.

We had a fantastic dinner in One Pico last Friday night. The food was absolutely excellent and everyone enjoyed their choices. I took photos of my courses of what were very artistically presented dishes and very high quality, tasty food. The staff were very friendly and efficient and service was very smooth. A very memorable occasion and we all really enjoyed eating in this classy restaurant. Well done to all the chefs and service staff and thank you!

We found this off the beaten path and within walking distance from hotel. After eating so we’ll all week in Dublin, we really did not seek out special, but we were surprised how special this place was compared to our other choices. As my boss said, “hidden gem.”

Don’t hesitate! And get the cheese. :-)

Tucked away in downtown Dublin, One Pico is an excellent restaurant. It is small and very intimate. The service is performed by top notch professionals who are willing to please, but are unobtrusive. The food is creative, appealing to the eye and very delicious. It i not cheap but worth every penny. You would miss out on something special id you were in Dublin and missed an opportunity to dine here.

We have eaten here a number of times and is normal great, however got the fish this time and it was raw, the staff were very nice however, they only took €10 of the bill for the fish being raw, which I felt was not good enough.

Excellent on all levels, maybe a bit pricey. Both my children (young adults) said it was the best food they had ever eaten in a restaurant. It was very tasty and presentation was excellent. Lovely relaxing decor. This is a place where one should be prepared to spend some time while eating out in order to make the most of the special athmosphere and food.

lovely meal. Some fairly standard items (like Onion soup) done so brilliantly and served so creatively that they became instant special treats!

Wine good and fair range of prices.

Service perfect.

Bread better.

and pre-theater deal is great value!!

Food was absolutely delicious, a little on the pricey side in general but considering the standard of the food, not overly expensive. Our waiter was very charming and friendly.
My only criticism was the restaurant was a little too bright and there was no background music at all to create a nice ambience, just my opinion.
Also, the man pouring our water, poured with vigor to put it lightly. More finess would create a higher end image for one Pico.

having taken the time to inform the restaurant that there was two kids , this was not catered for.
Charging 40 euro ahead for a 9 and 11 year old is poor
while the food was very good it is not value for money
