“you're there for food, not atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

You can forget about any atmosphere - the TV is too loud, the staff seem to have no personalities.
However - the food is FAB, the portions are huge and it's very reasonably priced.
So expect to walk out with a very full belly :)

Thank you for your review.
The sound in on only when there is a live match and on the request. You must have been in on one of those nights..
We are very happy you liked the food and hope next time you will find the atmosphere more appealing.

“Great Czech food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012 via mobile

Had a great pilzner type beer with pork schitzel covered in a potato pancake. Would reccomend, even though the beer was almost 5 euro. Moderately priced for Dublin.

“Friendly service, Free Wi-Fi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

Came here hungry and looking for something not too touristy while walking around the area. Food was average, very nice that they had free wi-fi for us to use.

Thank you for your review. We have changed our menu since you were here and make most of our food from scratch. Home made chips, hand battered cod etc. Try us next time you are around and you will see the difference.

“Try the Smoked Pork Leg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2012

We chose Pifko on the advice of a local and its proximity to our B&B. I took a chance and ordered the smoked hog leg and was very glad that I did. The meat came on the bone with skin, and was the most tender and delicious piece of pork that I have ever had. I also loved the Garnet Beer that the waitress recommended. The location is sketchy. Our waitress was friendly, but spoke limited English and was a little slow with the drinks.

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

Born in Czechoslovakia, I love this Czech pub. No other beers from around the world can beat the Czech and Slovak ones:-) My favourite is the Golden Pheasant (Zlaty Bazant - Slovak) and Gambrinus (Czech one). It's slightly overpriced in my opinion but great for having a good fun with your mates.

Thank you for your review. Much appreciated.
If you decide to come around again, try some of our special offers, such as ''Pitchers of beer'' when you can get 3 pints for only €10 or spirit&mixer for €5
We also do 2 course daily specials with soup and main for €8.95 and various special offers on weekends.
