Disappointing that the 3 course tasting menu is necessary. The setting could be majorly improved in the upstairs seating area.

I booked dinner here for my partner’s birthday, and it was just an amazing evening. The staff were so friendly and really helpful, giving advice on wines and explaining dishes. We each tried two wines which were excellent, and the côté de bœuf we ordered was cooked to perfection and was so worth every cent! Would really really recommend, I’ll definitely be back!

One of the better places for eating out in Dublin. Combine this with a very impressive wine menu. Ask for the big wine list to see a variety of mostly French top wine producers even with a stunning amount of old vintages. Santé!

Love Piglet and have attended for years. The service is amazing, quick and sharp. The food is great, served on time and always piping hot. Prawns are my go to dish, but let it down slightly this time. However every other time makes up for it :-)
You know what to expect when you go here; excellent food, wine (go for the Rioja under the weird wine section) people and service! X

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, but I was a bit dissappinted that the lunch menu has had only two vegetarian starters and no mains at all. One of the starters had to be prepared as a main. I would welcome refreshing of the menus and more vegetarian/vegan option. The wine list is very good, though.

Waiter was rude and food was mediocre. No atmosphere and disappointing decor. We got out of there as quickly as we could. Very disappointing end to an evening out in town. I wouldn’t recommend and I won’t be returning.

In general terms it was very good, food and wine list outsanding, service also very good, the only dowside is that we asked for espresso martini and they do not cocktails, I will just suggest to add 2 or 3, may be just the most common ones
