Had a really fantastic evening here. The food, drinks and ambience alone would probably be enough for 5 stars but the staff really set this place apart. Brilliantly knowledgeable and skilled at putting the guest at ease if you're not sure what to order. Our...server (Cal, I believe) was just outstanding. Cant wait to go backMore

This is definitely a place that I’d bring my friends and family from abroad to. It’s not only that the food and drinks are fantastic but the entire dining experience makes it stand out from the usual restaurants in Dublin. Although this was the first...time in a while we had been out to eat due to the restrictions with Covid-19, the Blind Pig had good procedures to maintain safety and cleanliness. This is one of the hidden gems in Dublin. We will definitely come back again.More

I have recently tried to pre-book The Blind Pig for an upcoming trip to Dublin. Upon making this booking online I was contacted and told I would need to make a deposit payment for the required booking. This is not noted on the website under...the booking policy. Following numerous emails I was told that booking for Fridays and Saturdays always require a paid deposit. When I politely informed them this would be my 3rd weekend booking I had made with the bar and never have I had to pay a deposit I didn’t get a reply! Given the current climate and uncertainties I think it’s only fair that the booking policy on the website should be adhered to whereby your credit card details are taken but no monies are taken unless you do not show up or cancel your booking. Highly disappointed in the “customer service” received.More

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