We had a chance to have a leisurely lunch here in One Pico today (23/09/2021). This was the best food we have had in a number of years in a number of cities. Quite simply, it was superb….so fresh, so well presented, so innovative and...so so tasty. Being at lunchtime, it was not too busy. The decor is so relaxing. The staff are fabulous… very attentive And knowledgeable about the various dishes. We had a lovely Godello blend from Galicia… and our sommelier explained the blend to perfection. If One Pico doesn’t get a Michelin *…… it will be a travesty…. Thank you to all the staff…. PS….. we booked lunch for a date in November as soon as we got home….. can’t wait…More

The bread was brilliant but service not so good. Definitely don't go early they aren't ready. Maybe after 7 Perhaps they are shorthanded. Food was fine but prices too high for what you get. Mr Fox is much better.

This was supposed to be a special family occasion to celebrate our daughters graduation. at €75 a head it is very pricy, especially when a number of items had a further supplement. I have never paid an extra €15 for a steak before anywhere. The...food was very poor and there wasn't enough of it! We don't appreciate huge quantities of food and recognise that this is supposed to be 'fine dining' but there were no sides even with the main course and the portion size was miniscule. The meal cost over €650 and was without doubt the worse value for a meal that we have ever encountered. We will never go back, and no one in their right mind, even on an expense account, should either. The service was terrible too.More

We had a memorable dinner at One Pico that was the highlight of our dining experience in Ireland these last ten days. Gracious staff, ambience and delicious food like no other restaurant we visited.

One pico This is one of my favourites and it’s faultless in terms of service and dining. The menu changes weekly which is fantastic if you’re a regular. I had two amazing lunches in July and august. (See pics). Good with allergies. You must book!

Dinner in One Pico is not cheap and that is before you pay for the expensive supplements. I don’t mind paying extra for particular ingredients such as lobster but charging €15 extra if you wish to have beef is a bit much. Other than that...everything was good. I particularly liked the passion fruit soufflé. It worked well with the ice cream instead of the white chocolate sauce.More

One Pico has a reputation for top quality and expensive or fine dining. What was to be a celebration of a friend, proved to be a highly disappointing experience at this restaurant. In a nut shell, the food was served cold and not cooked to...satisfaction despite clear preferences being expressed when ordering. Not much by way of checking in with customers either as to whether we were satisfied. Had to be brought to the attention of the staff. Another highly annoying feature is the menu and its pricing structure! One could forgive, perhaps, one option carrying a supplement; however, there were so many options requiring a supplementary payment, it was hardly worthwhile, if not a little misleading, with the set menu options price is wise. Why can’t they just call it as it is?! On the whole an extremely expensive and disappointing experience. Sorry to have to say!!More

Great to be back at a regular favourite of ours. My partners birthday, so we were 4. Delicious food and excellent service for which One Pico are well known for. Not too busy, unfortunately but it was their first night open since lockdown in January....Done away with their early bird menu, which is understandable considering the circumstances. Still, great value 4 course dinner. Nicely paced, not rushed and no need for a table turnaround. All protocols for Covid in place, scanned our vaccine certs, staff wearing masks and hand sanitiser at each table. Great to be backMore
