Visited with 3 friends for a late lunch after a lunchtime concert. Very friendly French staff and a lovely lower ground floor room. We had a private booth which made conversation very easy and they also have a few tables in the vaulted areas which...More

I had lunch with family in this delightful city centre restaurant (just across the road from the office of the Taoiseach). We sat in a comfortable alcove with glass sides. The service was friendly and attentive. The menu lent a little too much towards fish...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
