We thought this might no be our type of restaurant but it came highly recommended and we decided to try it. It was a wonderful surprise, and hands down, the very best restaurant we ate it in Dublin the entire time! The staff service was impeccable and the food was absolutely delicious! There were some original offerings, which we tried... More

As an avid amateur cook, and a self-avowed "food fascist," I rarely gush. The one meal I had at the Pearl Brasserie had me gushing on social media, gushing in a blog, and gushing to friends. It's that good. My husband and I both ordered seafood appetizers and main courses. Each one was prepared expertly, and possessed that perfect balance... More

My husband and I were celebrating and chose the Pearl Brasserie, which is located quite close to the Merrion Hotel and a few minutes walk from Grafton Street. This restaurant is in the 'fine-dining-category'..... expect high prices!! The cheapest option would be to visit at lunchtime or visit during 6pm to 6.45pm to avail of their 'Early-bird-menu'. We had a... More

My second visit here on 25th March for a family birthday. It didn't disappoint. Excellent food, professional service , great atmosphere. Every member of our party sang its praises. I can't recommend this restaurant enough. I shall return again... and again.

We were a couple having a nice dinner. We really loved the great service and the fantastic food. Both the salmon and the Irish beef was excellent. The Restaurant have a very large vine selection, but the prices are above normal, even for the standard. A pleasant evening.

Would strongly recommend this restaurant. Amazing food, service & atmosphere. Brilliant for a special occasion like a graduation or even just for a romantic dinner. Extremely good value. The food was just perfect!! Fillet of beef and halibut for mains duck foie gras and goats cheese parfait for starter were all amazing!

I did not have a great experience of this place and I don't think the 300 euro we spent was worth it. The service was rushed and we had at least 5 different people serve our table which I felt was too much. We had said it was our anniversary and we didn't even get a little desert acknowledging it....

Had a wonderful meal and romantic getaway in this lovely restaurant. Certainly deserves its star rating. Strongly recommend asking for the alcoves when booking. Staff are very attentive and they add to the experience. Loved the crab to start with and the hake main course.

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.

Description
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
