    The prawns were one of the best dishes I ate the entire time we were in Ireland. I couldn't stop thinking about them. The waitstaff was knowledgeable and helpful in choosing a delicious wine. Our only negative was that we were told we had to order 3 courses including an entree for each of us. This was too much food for us. And it was disappointing to see other tables were not required to do the same. If we could have just come to eat we would have gone back the very next night- but not with a 3-course minimum. Hope they change this policy.

    Not my best eating experience. I was looking forward to a high class experience to celebrate our wedding anniversary with our son. The experience started well, the waiter was pleasant and attentive and the starter was very nice. He recommended a white wine (I am more a beer person) that was OK. My son had the pork chop which he enjoyed very much although he did feel the rest of the dish was a little small (that's French cuisine) my wife and I ordered Cote de boeuf for 2 which is an additional €25 each and really looking forward to something special. I like beef medium but some restaurants tend to over cook it so I asked for it to be more on the rare side. My mistake! When it came out it was more blue or raw on the under side of the ribs on top of the steak was bright red and raw. The steak knife was unable to cut the meat from the bone so we just put it aside. My wife likes her steak better cooked than me so was unwilling to eat it. I assured her I would ask the waiter if it could be cooked a little more. As he didn't appear to be coming back to see how we were. (most restaurants over do the "is everything OK" not here) I had to go looking for him. I explained that it was my fault for asking for the steak to be more on the rear side but it was very rare (it was actually raw) he asked if I would like him to take it back to the kitchen and I said I would. He came out to the table and took the steak away. My wife and I ate the very tasty potatoes while we waited. When the steak came back it wasn't cooked much better (see photos) we ate what we could. I then went to pay the bill. As he produced the card machine he asked if I wanted to give a tip. I don't like being asked to tip and normal leave at least 10%. I said I wanted to pay the bill by card and use cash for the tip. He said we like cash! He never asked if we had enjoyed the food or if the steak was any better after he brought it back. I gave him a cash tip but less than 10% as I wasn't very happy with my experien

    We sat on the covered terrace while it rained and were warm and dry. The food is delicious and seasoned beautifully. We had the anchovies, tartare, octopus carpaccio, cod and veal finished with a pistachio chou to share. All delicious.

    Delicious food, amazing wine. Situated off a busy street you should expect some associated noise, maybe not the car alarm I experienced for about 15 minutes. But other than that, it was lovely.

    Went here for my birthday dinner (but didn't tell anyone until we finished dinner). The food and service were superlative. As someone who is lactose intolerant, I very much appreciated the option to have a digestif as my dessert. I have absolutely no reservations recommending this restaurants to others and we will return the next time we are in Dublin.

    Was much worse than when I first went there a year or 2 ago. The good points - wine, sauce on the prawn starter and bread tasted excellent The bad: - asked for outdoor table in our booking, were seated indoors - waiter didn't tell us about specials, we noticed the board by chance - waiter had a bit of an attitude - measly single piece of bread with the prawn starter, had to order more bread, €4.50 - The special main, pork ragu, had virtually no sauce and was completely covered in way too much cheese (maybe to hide the fact there was no sauce?) why not let customers put on their own cheese. - some poor music choices for a wine bar, e.g. guns n roses. - was very hot, air conditioner was turned off - being sat upstairs while all the staff were downstairs made it difficult to bring any of these issues to their attention.

    Really enjoyed our meal at Piglet list evening. Lovely food, well presented in a venue with a great atmosphere. It's quite a small space, so not ideal for large parties, but it's great for a very French, intimate dinner for two. The menu was very well thought-out with some excellent options and surprisingly well priced, particularly considering the location. I'm sure we'll be back.
