After much debating we decided on Pearl Brasserie as our anniversary meal on our trip to Dublin. We booked a table for the pre theatre menu as for €36 each for 3 courses it was a steal. From starters to dessert the food was perfectly balanced, we highly recommend the pigeon croquettes with pickled mushrooms & truffle mash. Incredible, would... More

We visited on New Year's Eve for a meal to start out celebrations. We were not disappointed. The service, the meal and the atmosphere were all perfect. We couldn't haven't asked for better. A few reviews I have read have stated how expensive it can be, and yes, it was very pricey. However for a special occasion I would say... More

We had a voucher which was a Christmas present and booked for six o'clock. We had been there before and always loved it but last night's experience really surpassed our expectations. I had the marinaded tuna and the pigeon. Both were sooo delicious; I rarely find myself in a restaurant closing my eyes to intensify the taste experience, but I... More

Had an evening here before christmas for a family home coming. Group of 7. Starters are very pricey, very small for the price. You wont be giving people a taste, as not enough to go around, but what you got was tasty - the wasabi sorbet was lovely. The cod and halibut fish dishes were slightly over cooked, for us.... More

It's been a while since we were, so I'm doing this largely from a hazy memory, but the main standout was the professional atmosphere and the attentive and efficient staff. The food was pretty good, too, from what I recall, although nothing stands out as exemplary.

Ate at Pearl twice last morning month, once for business and once with friends. Excellent meal on both occasions, in particular the venison. Very good wine list and very nice staff. One of the better restaurants in Dublin
