Unique experience - really enjoyed the atmosphere.
However very expensive cocktails that simply do not live up to their price tag.
A €13/14 cocktail should be served in something better than what would appear to be a cheap wine glass with no garnish.

I loved it at first. The concept is great and it was well designed. Food was really good and very decent cocktails. But we went there for a celebration and although the lady waitress was delightful, the other guy was a real buzz kill. He just seemed really unhappy in his work. Eventually we left and went to another bar where the staff were more fun

We were in Dublin last week, and went to Blind Pig, we had a great time! Our server Rodrigo was awesome and Federico the mixologist created some tasty drinks, our favor was Bon Bon. We will definitely tell our friends about this restaurant. We went for dinner and drinks on Wednesday and came back for drinks on Thursday, February 7, 2019.

Loved our evening at the Blind Pig! From the moment we booked and got the secret code to get in to the underground speakeasy, through to the food and cocktails we loved all of it. Staff were really knowledgable and friendly, the musician that was in was perfect for the atmosphere, the food was delicious and the cocktails were potent! Highly recommend.

Really cool resteraunt. I like the way you have to push a button for the secret door to open. Really good cocktails. It’s a little pricey for Italian food but would recommend it.

Our group of 12 had a lovely meal here. For starters, we had grilled veggies, charcuterie and burrata mozarella, and my main was the pumpkin tortelloni. While it is not the best Italian food in Dublin, it was yummy and nicely presented. The Blind Pig is particularly great for its ambiance: a cosy cellar-like space, with flapper-era music and intimate lighting. We asked for a custom, surprise cocktail and we got a wonderful gin-based concoction. The service was very polite.

Interesting hideaway restaurant that specializes in cutom cocktails. The speakeasy theme is neat but not really played up once you're there. A great place to go for dinner, once. PS. A reservation is a must and they only allow 2 hours max per seating so don't expect to hang out real long.

Absolutely delighted to have been able to book a table for six at rather short notice. We were in Dublin celebrating my husband's 50th birthday. A friend had told him about The Blind Pig, but we never dreamt we would be able to get in for a meal. What a gem. Quirky and delightful, with lovely staff and an excellent menu. The cocktails were magnificent! A truly memorable evening, which finished off my husband's special day to perfection.

What a great find! It's an authentic speakeasy! Unfortunately a large (noisy) group moved in beside us which was irritating. The staff did try to quiet them, as they try to stay true to the "speakeasy" hidden atmosphere. If not for that group, I would have said 5 star!

4-star all the way; from cuisine to customer service. The Hidden Pig is a hidden gem...literally. Don't get discouraged when your direction ap says, "You've arrived at your destination" and you can't find the restaurant sign. Enter the street level restaurant and go down the stairs to the cellar. Not everything in Ireland is as it seems. You won't be disappointed!

Made out last night in Dublin special!
We were expecting an Italian restaurant, and what we got was a fun, delicious experience . Playlist was wonderful, then a live singer at 9.
Food was very good, nice selection for everyone on the menu. Service exceptional.
a bit of a hunt to find the place, but that added to the fun.
Would recommend and return.

My husband and I had been looking forward to this unique dining experience since before our trip to Ireland. I made a reservation, got the info and we were both very excited.
When we arrived, we checked in and were seated pretty quickly. It went downhill after that, the service was bad. We had to go to the bartender to get our order taken, the waitress completely ignored us while being quite attentive to the tables around us. The food was good and the drinks were great and we had a nice evening together but for a pricey meal, you expect better service. Now, I don't like to be bombarded and it is a dark, kind of intimate space, but the service was non-existent. Honestly, we probably could have walked out without paying the tab and no one would have noticed. To pay our bill we went to the bar, and stood there until the hostess noticed that we were waiting with coats on.
