As is the case with many great restaurants in Dublin, Pearl's is located sub-street level. However, this seems to add to the coziness of the restaurant. Popped in last night for dinner and had another outstanding meal. The roasted red peppers on the fishcakes starter...More

Pearl brasserie never fails to impress. They do a separate vegetarian and vegan menu alongside a great wine and cocktail menu. Food is always excellent as is service.

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
