I had come here for lunch before and was underwhelmed but was convinced to come back for dinner and I have to say I still felt the same. I love to eat out and I know what I like myself but I don't think this restaurant is it. On the upside, the person I went with adores the place and still does so all is well. I had a beautiful ham and pork terrine to start which was nice. But then had the beef cheek and ox tongue for my main and it didn't float my boat at all. Now I like braised slow cooked food but this was done to such a degree that the consistency was borderline unpalatable. The accompaniments didn't set my world on fire either. I just felt for a beef dish it was bland which was a pity. I am a desert lover but sadly, none of the deserts grabbed me so I went for the little treats instead. A nice evening but when I get to go out for dinner I want a little bit more than nice. Service was wonderful. And the consolation is I know my other half will definitely go back.

Love this restaurant but have only ever eaten here with one other person so sit on the first level normally, this time there were six of us so we sat upstairs and I was pleasantly surprised, it is definitely a slightly louder dining experience than the formal first floor but great atmosphere. The food as always was delicious, we tried everything from the venison to the chicken and it was all cooked to perfection, the service was attentive but never intrusive and we were even more plesently surprised when the bill came as it was very reasonable. Highly recommend.

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.
