Our food was bistro style; simple fare but extremely well cooked and presented and served. Knowledgeable waiter who was attentive and friendly without being obtrusive

We enjoyed a lovely relaxing evening. We both had fish for starters & mains & all dishes were delicious. Fish was really fresh & sweet. Wine list was very reasonable & we choose an Italian red. We will definitely return & are planning our visit already

yet again a stunning meal. although my beloved Gambas weren't on the menu (the best Gambas I have ever tasted by a mile) the food was still on point.

steak tartar on beef dripping toast for starter - stunning.
staff are sound.
decor and ambience are perfect.

love Pichet. Best restaurant in Dublin imo.

(please bring back the Gambas) :)

Thank you for the great review Mickey! We will pass on your gambas feedback to the team and hopefully they will make a return soon.

Pichet is the most consistent restaurant in Dublin for excellent food which is superb value. The menus change frequently and there is always an excellent selection. The staff are fun and interesting to engage with, and are always so accommodating. My favourite restaurant in Dublin by far.

Fantastic service from the minute we entered the premises. The barman insisted on bringing our drinks over to us and the manager checked to make sure the temperature of the bar was ok as we were sitting near the door. When our table was ready we were not rushed we were just informed we could move into the restaurant from the bar when we felt ready. The two waiters on duty are obviously very experienced and enjoy their job. Very sincere service. The toilets smell amazing and were spotless. The menu was delightful, hearty winter options, seasonal and well thought out. Beautifully presented and of Michelin standard quality and priced so reasonably. Pichet has to be my favourite restaurant in Dublin.

Great food, very poor customer service no one greated us or took our coats when we arrived, we felt we were an inconvenience to our waiter who clearly had no interest in being there.
thankfully the food made up for his lack of interest.

I would not recommend Pichet on the basis of the lack of training of the waiter who “served” us. He took our food order and asked if we wanted a “glass of wine?” He didn’t seem to be keen to offer us the option of a bottle of wine. He was keen to get us to drink water as he asked rwice if we wanted “still or sparkling. He brought us bread, olive oil and balsamic vinger with bread. He didn’t notice we hadn’t side plates. We had to ask for them and as he put them on the table he chimed in with - “the ye go boss”. He then came along and gave us a scrumptious French Onion Soup but also chimed in with “there ye go boss”. He also reached across us to place the food on the table. Although we tried to attract his attention when looking for side plates he didn’t notice us but there wasn’t any problem when it came to refilling our glasses with wine but ignored our empty water glasses. The mains were very salty. All in all we won’t be rushing back. I can recommend the cocktails but that’s the size of it. Please train your waiters.

Unfortunately a no of items had sold out of an already limited menu by the time we ordered at 9pm on Sat night. Celeriac starter was quite bland; rest of table really enjoyed the trout & mussel starters. Cod was the main course hit.
Server was the highlight of the meal; a gent from Croatia who maintained his sense of humour (& ours) despite having to tell us that 4 choices were unavailable. He kindly aerated the Reserve Rioja & decanted it which transformed the taste. Thank you.

Hi,

We loved the food and only have a couple of small complaints.
1. Our waiter was lovely but we were never told about the specials and on the night we were there they had a crab special that we would have gone with.
2. We did not have a great table, stuck up against a pillar, we felt very squashed.
