A secret underground restaurant in Dublin city centre?? I only found out about this place last week and was really excited to try it. The Blind Pig is a prohibition bar based near Grafton st, it has a pretty cool secret door and instructions on how to find the restaurant and get in are all given in your confirmation email with your booking.
We went this week to give it a chance and it was pretty good. The entrance is pretty amazing and I won’t give anymore away on that as I don’t want to ruin the excitement for anybody. We sat at a high table and were the only people in the restaurant which was actually quite nice (we were there as soon as the restaurant opened). Enough of all the talk time for the details of the food.
We got mozzarella and tomato on ciabatta as a starter to share, it was really good and my first time eating mozzarella like this. The starter was a little pricey I felt for €10.
For mains I went for the chicken skewers, they actually do a pretty good deal on this dish, €30 for 2 people and it includes house wine. I was awkward and got this for 1 person, it was good and loved the grilled pineapple.
My boyfriend got the pork and it was gorgeous, pork with parma ham and sage. Definitely something I might not get next time (there was lots on the menu I wanted). This main was €19.
I had some wine, and my boyfriend got a granny smith cocktail, I tried it and it was pretty good.
Overall review, waiters were brilliant, extremely helpful and very friendly. The restaurant is gorgeous, it is quite dark though for any people who like to eat in a bright room (my pictures were hard to take and clear picture). Food was good, next time I think I need to try the NY style meatballs.
Hope you go and try it out 😀
