“great comfort food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

tasty and satisfying food. we have been several times and ordered a range of items from the menu and have never been disappointed. good portions, you wont leave hungry. relaxed atmosphere with easy going and professional staff. excellent meat dishes, amazing goulash of course. we had a cabbage soup once which was so so good but we haven't seen it on the special board again unfortunately.decent value and good range of booze.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

Went for a late dinner with friends. Big group. 10 of us. Staff was very kind and helpful. There was no problem with a table. We didn't have to wait long for our orders. Food was good and portions were quite big. There was also no problem with splitting our bill. Good atmosphere. Will visit one day. Great selection on Czech beers. I can recommend this place to everyone. Worth to visit.

“Best goulash ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

The food is good overall, but their goulash (especially in the bread bowl) is amazing!

Also the best Pilsner Urquell in Dublin and very likely in Ireland.

“food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

I have just very good experiences with this place.I`m chef in high level position for a last couple of years in Dublin in leading hotels and their own restaurants.Pifko had a numerous menus since their opened but this one is just the best one so far.Lunch is served very fast even in the most busy time and dinner has everything you need for your bar/restaurant food and all this is in one of the best value in the city center.Staff just could not be better always do extra mile( friendly,help full, big portions for good value) am always back for food and drink with my friend and family.
Lads, thank you for keeping of good name of traditional Czechoslovak cuisine and friendliness.
Keep heading this way and get better.
All the best Maros

“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.
