This is my third visit and each time it has been an excellent all round experience and to be recommended. The food and service are exemplary- yum! Great wine and all round good value for money - albeit not low end. Although I was there in business I would definitely go if I was paying myself. I'll be there again.

Had a wonderful lunch at the Pearl. Food was spectacular. We had one of the quiet corners which was perfect. Everyone was very attentive and we could not have asked for more. A marvellous experience.

Greeted on a miserable wet evening in Dublin by a lovely French woman who was very friendly, extremely professional and who seated us very quickly. The menu was wonderful, six of us each had different starters and mains. Each one superb. The service was immaculate - friendly, professional and efficient. It's so unusual to get all three things right.

Had the tasting menu of several courses. They even allowed us to change one of the courses as we preferred one of the starters on the al la carte. It was delicious as well as the wines that went with each course. The atmosphere was good too. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Brought by a business partner along with 3 others, arriving early to a near empty restaurant, we were warmly greeted, always present but never obtrusive. A nice looking premises with a good value menu and plentiful choices, the food French influenced , not large quantities but I went away feeling full and contented. Good choice.

I cannot praise Pearl Brasserie enough. We were there yesterday and enjoyed a wonderful lunch. The staff were friendly, created a very pleasant atmosphere and we were seated in a lovely alcove. As for the food - from starters to dessert every dish was a delight. The food combinations worked perfectly – each one adding and combining to give a... More

Fine dining restaurant by the Government buildings. Posh, but not too posh- as the poshest place is around the corner ( Patrick Gibald). Moderate amount of food on the plates served by French waiters- you won't leave hungry. Good place for special occasions.

We booked Pearl Brasserie as part of a weekend away trip. From the moment we arrived until the moment we departed the evening was perfect. The restaurant is located in a basement and has some cute little private dining "caves" which we were lucky enough to bag for our meal. The staff is mainly French and very passionate and knowledgeable... More

Mains were halibut and Scallop risotto and both were a work of art and full of flavour. The staff get everything just right.. this is high high class dining yet doesn't feel... More
