The combination of Stephen Gibson’s delicious bistro fare, a stylish dining room, welcoming service, great wine list and central location make Pichet a great choice for any occasion.


Pichet was quick to mark itself out as special among Dublin Restaurants From the outset the stylish French restaurant had everything going for it – a nifty location just off Dame Lane, a big name front of house (Nick Munier of Masterchef, who has since moved on), a talented chef, ex- L'Ecrivain Stephen Gibson, and a rather classy dining room.

Aside from the big name departure Pichet hasn’t changed. If anything it’s upped its game, serving up wonderful bistro food with charming service in very comfy chairs – blue leather with cream piping, so very chic!

Menus offer a broad mix of bistro classics, but with a fresh, modern interpretation. Moules mariniere are cooked in cider with the addition of pancetta and parsley. Roast monkfish tail might be accompanied by babaganoush, tendersteam broccoli and fried potatoes with smoked butter. French favourites like rabbit and foie gras terrine, or suckling pig belly with Toulouse sausage and Puy lentils, are indulgent and imaginatively executed. Desserts are always superb too, perhaps a creamy yoghurt pannacotta with rhubarb sorbet and white chocolate crumble.

Dishes sound hearty but portions are well judged, as is the exemplary cooking. Pichet’s impressive wine list works a treat with the fare on offer and includes a great choice of wines by the glass, pichets (carafes) or bottles and the offering is supplemented by a well stocked bar, perfect for cocktails or digestifs. (Pichet’s buzzy vibe makes it a popular choice for late night celebrations).

No detail is overlooked here: from the beautiful décor to the friendly staff and interesting menus, Pichet is a perfect spot for any occasion, from a celebration to business lunch, date night to casual drop-in.
