Enjoyed an early evening meal with a friend. We both had the strip loin which was very good. It came with fries (that were in the cool side) and rocket. We shared a snickers parfait which was really good. Staff were friendly and professional.

food was ver average terrine with 2 grape halves surrounded by 5 crisps!!!!!! Really? Chicken dish was boiled chicken no flavor and heavy sticky barley. The piece de resistance was my kir it was a glass of average wine with a dash of creme de cassis which I was charged 2€ extra for.. a real kir it was not. I was very disappointed with the quality of food here. Wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend it....

Good food, not happy about the table, wedged in a corner up against an internal partition. A shame because I rate Pichet highly and this spoiled an otherwise positive review. I'll be sure to state that I dont want this table if booking again.

Absolutely lovely food and staff are amazing. my only one small criticism is the size of the table. it was very small and we were close to a pillar, and very close to the people beside us. But all in all I would recommend highly and I don't give praise lightly.

Prawns were fabulous. Our steaks were slightly undercooked for our taste. The steak dish was poor value with just a handful of rocket served with it, with some bernaise sauce and greasy chips. Some vegetable would have been nice with it at least. The white chocolate cheesecake was delicious.

We are regular visitors because we find the food is always consistent, delish. However, the benefit of an early bird menu is lost when you are charged €8 to €10.50 euros for a glass of wine. We were shocked when 3 x glass of wine cost more than €30 on the bill. A nice less expensive House Wine should be on the menu for choice.

Hadn’t been to Pichet in quite some time. Revamped restaurant now includes a cocktail bar area. Ambience was great as usual. Staff superb. Service could not be faulted. Food was disappointing and overpriced. Average starter, very average main course, great dessert. Felt that where Pichet had previously been a great dining experience for super value, it’s now very overpriced. Perhaps lunch still represents value. And maybe change is necessary to survive. One bottle of wine and two glasses of Prosecco. Bill for 3 came to €250. I thought that was too much for the standard of food presented. Disappointed 😞

This isn't our first time at Pichet. Booking a table is made easy with opentable. As soon as you walk through the door a welcome is guaranteed. Before dinner try one of the delicious cocktails on offer or ask them to make one for you. The menu is outstanding and never fails to deliver on taste. In our company was newbies to this delightful restaurant we'd talked the place up so much the expectations where high. The steak tartare was an explosion of taste in your mouth only washed away with the exquisite offering of wine that's catered for. The seabream melted on the tongue for the main enough on food to satisfy any hunger. Alas didn't have any dessert but instead had oysters the freshest I've ever slip into my mouth and one cheese board shared between four. The only fault was in the cheese board if only something a little closer to home in tastes to satisfy the pallet. Overall amazing food and the friendliest of staff again couldn't fault it until next time.

went for pre-theatre menu- which is excellent value! the food was very good, particularly the starters which we enjoyed very much... service was excellent, ambience spoiled somewhat by an unfortunate incident in the kitchen which had smoke flooding through the restaurant which was a tad off putting & generally changed the mood around the restaurant... i’m a fan of pichet, i would recommend esp. for the early bird...

Felt somewhat rushed as having early bird. We were told immediately after we were seated that it was a 2 hour window. We had 3 courses thrown up at us within 55 mins. There was no fear we would be there for 2 hours.

Unfortunately for the restaurant the kitchen air venting failed so restaurant very smoky and ventilation poor and hot. Unfortunate on the night

I ordered the farmyard chicken and was expecting something pedestrian and was absolutely wowed when I was served with the most succulent chicken breast I have ever eaten. I could not get over how moist the chicken was. In the summer they pair the chicken with fresh corn and roasted peppers, a wonderful combination. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable pairing the chicken with a lovely wine. The desserts were light and a perfect compliment to the meal. My wife and I ordered off the pretheater menu which was great value. If not the best, my meal at Pichet was one of the best I have ever eaten.
