Book far ahead as since Pichet opened last year free tables have been few and far between.

Dubliners are familiar with the street front cafe but the secret hides out the back where tables are intimately set out in a much larger area for a deliciously romantic and/or social experience. You can really hide away in Pichet for a few hours and I love that it's equally impressive during the day or night. It's not rocket science really. Open a new restaurant in a recession, keep the food delicious and simple, the service attentive and the prices low - throw in a celebrity host (Nick Munier from Gordon Ramsey's Hell's Kitchen), top Dublin eatery [node:172454]'s past chef Stephen Gibson, and you've got, well, Pichet. Bravo.

Food and drink

Yum, fish, steak, pheasant, chicken etc. Local produce, named and accounted for. Great wine by the glass/pichet (jug) or bottle, plus a tasty coffee shop during the day for snacks and coffee.

Recommended dishes

My roast halibut main course took the words out of my mouth, literally, beautifully cooked. Try the suckling pig, with crispy crackling - or the cod with a lobster foam. The crispy hen's egg with black pudding starter is faboulas.

Ambience

It's convivial and warm, and due to the high demand for tables, Pichet is usually buzzing.

Service

Super attentive and friendly. The influence of celebrity host Nick Munier is palpable as excellent service plays an important role alongside great food.

Location

It's in the city centre, around the corner from Trinity College and Dame Street.

Price advice

On Sundays between 2pm-6.30pm it's two courses for 20 euros or three for 25 euros.
