Absolutely wonderful dinner and service! We came just as they changed to their winter menu- Halibut was delicious! Sommelier was very helpful in suggesting a wine both of us would enjoy. Highly recommend.

Experienced a very nice lunch including very friendly and professional staff. Fantastic fish dishes, amazing wasabi ice cream as a topping to the avocado starter. Great combination. Couldn’t be better. Strongly recommended.

The combination of top quality food, great service, fantastic atmosphere and beautiful wine makes this one of my favourite spots in Dublin for a high quality meal. The staff in particular were really professional and friendly. I can't wait to go back.

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 Sebastien 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
