The Pig's Ear is a small and cosy restaurant, situated overlooking Trinity. It feels traditional yet comfortable, with friendly service, and delivers excellent food at very reasonable prices. Worth a visit for any lunch or dinner
We had our wedding lunch here in February for close family and friends and everything was just perfect. Food was really lovely, the dining room was so beautiful and the tables set out perfectly to take advantage of the lovely views of Trinity but the...staff really made it, they couldn’t do enough. Special thanks to Katrina in the office who put up with a stressed bride in the weeks before asking silly questions. Thoroughly recommend the Pigs Ear - it made our day.More
Visited last Saturday evening for dinner with three of my friends....the food was amazing as-well as the service being very friendly and efficient. We really enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back
We really wanted to love this place as it has so many good reviews. Unfortunately, our review is not a good one.
Service was fine, we had a lovely table beside the window and the place is cozy and warm.
The wine, bread and butter...were all nice and we enjoyed our starters. I had the venison tartare which was really nice and my partner had the salmon which be thought was fine but a little tough.
For main, he had the pork belly and really loved it. I had the duck and found it very, very dry as if it had been reheated to the point where it got tough. I ate it anyway as I was starving but did mention to the waiter that it was dry. Honestly, it felt like an amateur home cook had left last night’s left overs a little too long in the oven.
Then came dessert... we shared the Black Forest, which is this sort of crumbled up chocolate biscuit with some (I think) mascarpone and some cherries. We’d just had a couple of spoonfuls when my partner found a hair in it. Omg, it was so gross. We told the waiter and he apologized and took it off the menu but even with that, what a rubbish way to end our already disappointing meal.
€135 I genuinely feel I wasted.
Won’t be going back or recommending.More
We were tourists and came across this restaurant 'accidentally'!
We did not make any reservation beforehand but the staff tried every effort
to offer us a table. Thank you very much!
