Nice little restaurant , love the home. Made bread , atmosphere was also nice , I do find portions can be a little small with saying that it packs a punch with flavour and quality and presented lovely too. Enjoy myself and will be back .

Was a little disappointed having heard such good reviews previously - Early bird menu was a bit limited and sorry to say food was mediocre........however service and atmosphere was good .... all in all a bit of a foodie tourist trap

Excellent menu for lunch but portions are small. Wine overpriced and why charge €2.95 for bread........enough said!

Have visited the Pigs Ear on one previous occasion , quite some time ago, so was looking forward to trying it out again. On the last occasion I was impressed with both the food and the view from window overlooking grounds of Trinity . My husband and I were disappointed this time as the food was mediocre ... My goats cheese starter was very good, as was my husband's crab mayonnaise but sadly from then on it went downhill . My thyme roast chicken with truffles and sweet corn tasted of neither thyme or truffles...the chicken itself was moist and nicely cooked but lacked basic seasoning . My husband ordered the fish which he said was nice but nothing spectacular so he ordered the cheesecake which he thoroughly enjoyed. I passed on dessert and ordered a cappuccino , which for me, was the best part of the meal. We were then offered a complementary drink by the waitress who was rather familiar to the point of rudeness! Overall a very disappointing experience .....will definitely NOT be re-visiting the Pigs Ear.

Cant get over how they are charging 26e for such a dining experience - food was out of this world and beat any expectations we had. Would rate this as one of the most enjoyable dining experiences of my 13 years living in Dublin.

I am a fan of The Pig's Ear, the food is always perfection, staff are friendly and informative and it never disappoints - a must for anyone who hasn't experienced yet!

A group of us had dinner in the Pig's Ear to celebrate a birthday. From beginning to end we were not disappointed with both the food and service. We were seated at a table on the top floor, the restaurant was full and had a great buzz. The tables were far enough apart that we could hear each other without shouting. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The choice of starters was so good it took me a long time to decide on the beetroot and goats cheese. It was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. The other starters looked equally as well and were very much enjoyed. For main I had the Ox tongue and beef cheek which was melt in the mouth tender. It was a very filling but delicious. Dessert is where I think the presentation fell down. Both starter and main were presented well, in a modern style but desserts were presented in jars (jam jars, kelkin jars and so on) with sugar in a bag and milk in a milk jug - this just didn't fit with the earlier presentation. However, despite the presentation the desserts were tasty. I would highly recommend this restaurant and I look forward to visiting it again soon.

Went for lunch, atmosphere was nice, relaxed, was expecting the food to be really good. The soup starter was interesting but a bit bland, though nicely presented. The Main, Pork belly was fine but nothin special in my opinion. Desert was fine. Coffee ok.
