Perfect nice restaurant. Perfect wine list. I sugest you to listen to waiter for food sugestions. Stuff is very frendly. You can even smoke e-cigarets. Should try red beer, if you like beer.

We had dinner at this restaurant for a treat in Dublin. The fish I had was wonderful. A very good wine list and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend it.

Dublin's finest! The Pearl is just that, a beautiful, quaint, small, yet busy restaurant, with Michelin starred food and service, all tucked away in an unsuspecting and seemingly hidden location. The atmosphere is not to be forgotten either, the setting was upbeat and lively with...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
