Try the cheese steak, it is so good! The potato pancakes are also excellent. For the non veggies, well you are spoilt, go visit and treat yourself. Pair it off with a nice beer. They have a vast selection and the staff are always helpful with any questions you might have, providing tasters etc. Love this place :)

I stopped by early to go into the off license and was cursed at by one of the staff for no apparent reason. Never experienced anything like this before in my life. Rudest thing Ive ever seen, and I live in Dublin. Stay away from this place.

Hi there, sound like some kind of misunderstanding more than anything else. My staff does get it own share of abuse in the shop on the occasions. Im always here on Mondays, just ask for Igor if you are around and We will sort this out. More

We stopped here for a quick drink before the Guinness storehouse. Very quick pleasant service. The Irish coffees were the strongest of all we tried! Food was cooking and smelt excellent although we didn't try any due to time limits.

I have been to Pifko many times since it opened in Dublin and have never been disappointed with anything they offer including brunch, lunch, dinner, and especially the excellent selection of of Czech/Slovak beers and spirits.

What a pleasant surprise! I've been to the Czech Republic many times and I love their food and beers. This pub on Ushers Quay also shows live football on multiple screens. First the beers: a good collection of Czech beers, well kept and well served. The food is typical Czech home cooking with food that sticks to your ribs. I... More

On our way back from Phoenix Park we found this Restaurant/Pub accidentally. it's on the quay of river Liffey near Guiness Storehouse. The menu ist a nice mixture of Irish and Czech dishes as like as the beers. We ate the "Special" for lunch - Vegetable soup, roast beef with excellent gravy and dumplings - very good. Note: Draught Pilsner... More
