Eamonn O"Reilly chef patron opened One Pico in 1997. From the outset, it was his intention to serve the very best food in relaxed, informal but luxurious surroundings.
In One Pico it's not particularly about gadgets and tricks it's about the best in modern classical cooking with flavour and seasonality been paramount.
Most recent awards received by the restaurant are:
Elite Traveller - Best Restaurants in Dublin.
Georgina Campbell Guide - Chef of the year.
Irish Restaurant Awards - Best Chef Dublin.
Food & Wine Magazine - Best Dublin Restaurant.
As usual, discrete but friendly service and superb food, beautifully presented.
Super food, lovely, relaxed service and great value for money - we especially loved the Beef Cheek, and the cheeseboard. It's always great to be introduced to a new cheese; in this case the French Tomme Croquant, with a rind washed in walnut liquor, evident in every morsel. The well-priced Godillo Spanish white wine was exceptional.
It was unfortunate. When you are seated for nearly 30 minutes before someone comes to your table to take an order that sets the tone. When our server came by he asked if we were ready to order when we hadn’t even had a chance to order cocktails.
While the pace after was a bit slow it was tolerable, however you can’t get over the sense that you are being ignored. The staff was very nice, but probably came by our table 4 maybe 5 times in total over a 2 ½ hour dinner.
Finally, as vegetarians, normally when a chef modifies a dish to accommodate you, they will change it to keep it interesting. In this case they only removed what we believe were substantial elements to the dish and made no attempt to shift or modify anything.
In total, the food was OK, certainly not exceptional and service left a lot to be desired.
I booked One Pico to celebrate my birthday. The food was absolutely delicious and the service outstanding. We will be back
Food was fabulous but service was a little disjointed. Had to go looking for staff on several occasions for service
Top shelf all the way
Excellent as always, one of my all time favourite restaurants.
Food was very good & tasty
Service should have been more attentive - had to look around at times for assistance
Interesting that you ask about noise - restaurant was on 25-30% full BUT I had the endure the conversation of two men behind me ..... tables could be separated a little bit more.
We went there for a celebration dinner and it was absolutely amazing! What a way to celebrate! Excellent food, wine and service was exceptional! I will definitely recommend this place for anyone who is looking for fantastic food and beautiful atmosphere!
Truly what a way to celebrate!
We were enchanted by One Pico! The food is innovative, beautifully composed, and flawless. The staff are superbly trained: professional, attentive, but not intrusive. We had an early seating (jet lag) but we never felt hurried during the meal. I have booked fine restaurants through Open Table in Boston, Chicago, and New Orleans in the past year, but One Pico will stand out as the best overall dining experience of the past 12 months.
No atmosphere. A little stuffy which is quite unusual these days. Overpriced....€5.50 outrageous for a coffee. Food was very good.
My first visit to one pico. Wonderful staff, friendly and not stuffy. Excellent food. Lobster ravioli to die for. Great wine list. Dawson car park opposite makes it very convenient. Will definitely go back.
Aa always, one pico was excellent. Food and service magnificent.
Superb! One Pico was a very friendly venue with outstanding food and wine. The service was faultless.
I booked the table from Germany in advance and everything was perfectly arranged. The dishes and the wine were excellent, the service brillant, the atmosphere and the style were really outstanding. First I went there with a colleague and I returned a day later alone. I would always come back when I am in Dublin.
Excellent experience all round
Great food artfully presented
A wonderful way to spend a lunchtime
Had a fabulous evening with really excellent food and advice from the sommelier. Highly recommend for a special night out.
Frequent one pico customer
Fabulous food and fabulous service ...
Both food and service were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant
Very good restaurant for a quiet and important business lunch in Dublin. The food is excellent, light and very well presented. Staff is attentive & extremely professional. Highly recommended if you are looking for a high level fine dining venue that is also cosy and intimate.
Great place with an excellent cuisine « À la française »
The cart of wines is wide and affordable
A special award to the sommelier
Beautiful food. Excellent service. Really enjoyed our evening in One Pico.
Extremely enjoyable evening, very relaxing, attentive & extremely professional staff. Excellent food & choice. Looking forward to our next visit. Well done!
Food is always good .Only objection charging 3.50 Euro for coffee.
Although the service was outstanding, the portion sizes were tiny and grotesquely overpriced.
On vacation from us loved our experience .👏👏👏
Delightful lunch at One Pico as ever. Food was light, beautifully presented and interesting. Service warm and efficient without being overpowering.
fabulous; for value , food and service this is still the best lunch in the city
We were a little surprised how quiet the restaurant room was we arrived for Saturday lunch, but a few more tables were occupied after us giving a nice buzz to the room. We opted for the very reasonable €25 lunch but chose to upgrade and drinks brought up the cost considerably. We were lucky to have a gift voucher, so that certainly took the sting out of the tail. The food was delicious. Only the sweet dessert wasn't remarkable but that may have just been to our taste. Excellent friendly professional service without being stuffy. We would return.
Superb evening of food and wine. Great service and attention with happy staff. Hard to fault.
One of the finest restaurants in Dublin and a great place to catch up with one of my oldest friends. Great decor, excellent service, best and freshest of Irish ingredients. If you have a special occasion this is a place to consider
In my opinion One Pico is overpriced and totally lacking in atmosphere. The dining room was less than half full, despite our reservation being for 8.30pm
on a Friday night.
One Pico is simply one of best restaurant in Dublin.Great value, pefect service and quality of the food is outstanding!! Highly recommended.
Great food and fabulous service, haven’t been in a while but will be back soon.
One Pico is the best restaurant in Dublin, it has everything from fabulous service to the most amazing food, ever in Dublin be sure to visit
My Cod was more delicious than I can describe.
Been here a long time and always produces high quality food, with real flavour. Fish cooked perfectly.
Love it especially at lunchtime re $$. Service excellent. Professional but approachable.
The food quality was excellent but the service was not good. Staff chatting to each other in the lobby rather than attending to patrons - despite the fact that as early diners we were practically alone in the restaurant. The offer of drinks and taking of food orders were very slow.
Really disappointed, eaten here before and liked it but really poor menu, mediocre food and really expensive. Don’t recommend it at all.
