2 February 2010
NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS
ONE PICO WILL BE CLOSED FOR COMPLETE REFURBISHMENT & RE-DESIGN FROM JAN 30TH LAST SERVICE & WILL RE OPEN THE SECOND WEEK / 8TH OF FEB 2010.FURTHER UPDATES WILL BE UPLOADED 8TH FEB WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU BACK & THANK YOU FOR YOUR CUSTOM,
One of the best restaurants in Dublin. And no snootiness to the staff. They’re all very good at their jobs without making bearded folk like me feel unwelcome.
minimum of 20€ for a lunch is cheap now? wow
Peter, this is an extraordinary offer. One Pico is one of the best restaurants in Ireland. When you see that many run-of-the-mill places are charging around €17 for two course lunches, it makes One Pico’s offer all the better. I never said it’s cheap, but it is great value for money, and if you want to eat in one of Ireland’s best restaurants but can’t afford the dinner, this is a good chance to spoil yourself for a steal.
It’s still not a cheap eat by any means. “Posh” is just one of those attributes that become important if you got enough money to burn for vanities. When I think of cheap eats, I don’t think about paying for white tablecloths and courteous pomp of service. I would advice if you’re unemployed, save up €20 and use it wisely instead.
Peter, unemployed or not, some people would rather spend €20 on a delicious lunch than on three pints. It’s not about pomp. We enjoy good service, being treated well in a top-class restaurant, and outstanding food. I’ve seen mediocre and decent lunches in both average and good restaurants which would cost about €20 for two courses.
There’s nothing unwise about treating yourself to a great value meal which would normally cost a lot more. I don’t have money to “burn for vanities”, but life would be pretty dull if we all took your advice. I’m taking it you’d advise unemployed people not to spend €20 on a few drinks, but “use it wisely instead”? Do you appreciate good food? And have you tried One Pico before dismissing it out of hand?
Peter I really wish you would stop talking to yourself!
I’m Blue Peter. Miseryguts is Black Peter.
Ha! Catriona, that really made me laugh. Peter, have you gone all Gollum on us? 🙂
