Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Banging flavours and the portion size was amazing. We were only in Dublin three days, but had Pablo Picante twice in two days, and even got a takeaway burrito to take back to London with us!

We got 3 burritos - classic, slim Delgado & Verdi All 3 disappointing, no flavour , no salsa , no sour cream, no guacamole, just rice beans and meat. 2nd time we had a poor experience here, won't be back Used to be a good...place but run by snowflakes now who don't care. Zero hospitality. Over priced bland burritos Go somewhere else is our adviceMore

Got a box and its tiny. Boojum bowls are much bigger for the same value. If you like a decent portion size, get a burrito.

Review re experience upstairs in El Silencio FFF. What could be a lovely restaurant was ruined by extremely rude and aggressive behaviour by the owner to the customers upon arrival. The owner was so incredibly aggressive and rude towards us that it left us all...feeling very unsafe in the situation as well as being in total shock and disbelief. The aggressive shouting from the owner and his condescending nature was kindly reserved for the women of the group, and in particular the person who made the reservation a month earlier. Not only will we not be going back, I would consider reporting the owner for his behaviour. I had booked an outdoor table back in June for a group for my birthday (which is at the end of July) and was told we would have the outdoor heated and covered terrace for 12 people. This was re - confirmed by email from the owner in mid - July, two weeks before the booking. When we arrived for our booking the owner only had tables available in the lane way outside, between the terrace/restaurant and all in a line and against the wall. I mentioned that when booking and confirming I was told about the terrace and asked would it be possible to still sit there as promised. In response, the owner completely flipped and raised his voice at me, shouting at me for referring to booking emails (some examples were “I don’t care what I said before, we’re busy now” and “oh of course you’d refer to those f**king messages”). At this point the owner then told us to f*ck off and that he wouldn’t serve us at all because we questioned the tables offered and our “attitude” towards him. Granted, I don’t think any of us particularly wanted to (or even felt safe to) stay at that point. Left in total disbelief at what had just happened (a grown man screaming at me to the point of making me cry on my birthday) we were left to readjust our plans for the evening. We actually winded up having a lovely time being anywhere but el silencio though so perhaps we should at least thank the owner for that (although you’ll forgive me if I don’t). You couldn’t pay me to go back again.More

The food is great. I’d probably say y’all have the best burrito in Dublin. Most authentic Mexican and you’re staff are so lovely. Portions have gotten a lot smaller which is unfortunate. I used to use the bowls as a post gym meal but it’s...not filling anymore so will probably move on. You guys are great though and I’ll be back in a heartbeat if the portion sizes came back.More

We ate in your restaurant upstairs el silencio fff. Last Friday the 10 th of July. I am writing this here because the food comes from the restaurant downstairs. The waitress had no clue what she was doing I asked her about gluten free options...and she told me the vegan options she stood at the bar instead of going to check for me. I had to tell her to go and ask the chef. She came to take our order as soon as we sat down instead of giving us a chance to check the menu. So rude. I was really shocked at the lack of gluten free options in a Mexican restaurant I couldn’t try any of the tacos and they were the reason why I went there. I don’t want to know how you make your door when I can’t order a taco from a menu they are supposed to be made from corn if original and have no gluten if done correctly . The cocktails were good.More

My sister and I visited Pablo Picante with a friend. We ordered two bowls and a burrito and sadly all three orders were missing elements which were described on the menu. The orders were also incorrect. The food was bland and not to the standard...we were expecting as my friend who had been before said the food she had had previously was much better. Overall I was disappointed as I feel that the food and service could have been much better and normally is.More
