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.

We had as much fun searching for this restaurant as we did when we eventually found the secret door and booked a table for what turned out to be a delicious meal. I ordered STUFATO DI AGNELLO CON CASTAGNE E PUREA DI PATATE for €22...and it was perfect!More

Wonderful restaurant in an intriguing location accessed underground behind a secret door. Excellent food, friendly service. What’s not to like…

Fun experience but not super great. We visited nice speakeasy venues in Dublin that I’d recommend before this one. Music was really good. Drinks and food were decent.

We absolutely had a fun time finding The Blind Pig! Once we did it was such a cozy environment. The waiters were very attentive and the food was fantastic!

Very nice speakeasy, book ahead for a table and you will get the directions. Good drinks and perfect ambience. The entrance is hidden and they often have live music.

If you like speakeasy bars, you must try this one. Good luck on finding it... thats what makes it so much fun. The secret cave and cobblestone walls just add the awesome ambiance. But the cocktails, I will forever dream of the cocktails. Slainte'

Want a great cocktail with amazing music in a small, non touristy fun atmosphere? So beyond glad i saw this on google maps and sought it out. Not easy to find and recommend making reservations but so worth the effort. Andrew, Luc and Rodrigo made...our stay! The Nonin is an award winning drink and a must have. I really hope to make it back to Dublin to see what cocktails get created next.More

A lot of admin,strict timeslots, a deposit taken off your credit card. Venue cool, the way it's hidden, nice interior. Live music. Food good too. You need to book beforehand food or drinks ,so make up your mind before booking. No walk ins, despite many...tables empty Cocktails and price normal. Staff fine. It is a nice place, and I'm glad I tried it, but probably next time I go somewhere you can just pop in, can understand restaurants need bookings, but I don't like a bar crawl to be too rigid. Plenty of places in Dublin with a more spontaneous feel and imaginative cocktails. Would recommend it anyway, they do their job.More

It was very difficult to find, but after some help from the waiter we found it - I wont spoil the suprise! Very cosy place for dinner and a great setting for a chill night out. The drinks were excellent but the food honestly wasn't...great. We had 2 different dishes and neither were good. Mine was seafood - didnt taste fresh - and my friends food did not have any taste at all. Would come back for a cocktail since the bartender was very competent and had many options I have never tried or seen before.More

Place is very nice, food is good and cocktails are great. Staff were helpful with the drinks and courses, but not exactly friendly or welcoming, just ok. The experience and setting are quite nice which makes up for the prices, which are a bit steep.

I would say so because it’s all about the “secret” on the location, which you only get when you book it.
