We requested for one of the cove tables and it was out of this world! It was so romantic and peaceful and we were very well looked after. The food was delicious with a great selection of wine to choose from. Highly recommended!

We have been here a few times and find the food quite inconsistent. The service is generally quite good but the food can be quite bland at times. I do not think this restaurant offers good value for money. I had a goats cheese starter...More

Quick lunch visit, really informal and intimate atmosphere but not pretentious. Service was rapid and polite, as I only had an hour. Two spectacular fish dishes off the a la carte menu with the halibut particularly good. Wine choice was superb and reasonable for the...More

First visit and was a bit concerned when I arrived and realised it was in a basement - I shouldn't have been. Good welcome excellently spaced and secluded tables. Choose the early bird as dining with elderly parents. Service, menu and food were all excellent...More

Dear Vacation Butterfly, Dress code at Pearl is relaxed. Business diners (suited) and social diners (casual) are welcomed with equal warmth. Personally, I wouldn't wear jeans to this restaurant but smart slacks/no jacket... More

Yes. I believe some in our party had jeans and a t-shirt on. Not sure there even was a dress code!

Pearl Brasserie restaurant Dublin opened its doors on the 7th December 2000. Our first objective was to build a team with a hunger to learn and a passion for detail. The same hard work was being asked of our Irish and continental suppliers. So we were able to get the best Irish and French produce on a daily basis. Culinary ingenuity and skill from the kitchen combines with warm, welcoming, professional service delivering one of Dublin’s premier fine dining experiences. Our head chef/patron Sebatien Masi was awarded Best chef of the year 2017 by Georgina Campbell’s Guides, Pearl Brasserie continues to perform at the top of the game in Dublin. Bon Appetite
