The 8 Best Restaurants in Dublin


One Pico

Cuisine: Modern French

Style / Ambiance: Tucked away on a small lane near St. Stephen’s Green, One Pico offers award-winning fine dining in a peaceful pocket of the city center.

The fresh white exterior leads into a dining room of gold and beige, peppered with plush purple furnishings that make it easy to linger here for a while. Chef-proprietor Eamonn O’Reilly and head chef Ciaran McGill create wonderfully inventive dishes using local seasonal produce, changing the menu every month and never failing to impress O’Reilly’s many loyal disciples. Particular delights are the seven-course surprise menu and the daily table d’hôte lunch menu. O’Reilly has an eye-catching CV—he cut his teeth alongside three Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alleno at Le Meurice in Paris, and went on to top hotels in Boston and Casablanca before opening One Pico back on his home turf. A welcome return it was too.
