Probably 4.5 stars, food is great and the wine is excellent. The wine list has limited options by the bottle under €33 something to be mindful off.

We went here with friends our first night in Dublin. The service was great and the food was reasonably good. The pasta dishes were a bit bland but the deviled egg special and the small plates were great. It’s a small space but with a great wine list and our waiter was very helpful with picking a wine and letting us try it before deciding. I would definitely try again.

Lovely food, outdoor area lovely. Inside is a little bit stuffy is the only downside

This was my 2nd time at Piglet Wine Bar, delicious pasta and delicious wine, their selection of wines is very impressive but have something to suit every pocket. Food is tasty, service is swift and friendly

Second time here.
There is a risk involved in returning to a restaurant where you had a fantastic night previously but I needn’t have worried.
The food was again fabulous, the wine selection is really good(if maybe a bit pricey) and the service is casual but very efficient.
This is a great place for a casual night out with fabulous food that won’t break the bank.

We enjoyed our meal at Piglet. One of our party was delayed, and the server was very thoughtful about checking back to see whether we wanted him to submit our orders. I ordered the 4 wines/4 bites. The wine was all fantastic. The food also tasty -- not a lot to eat, so this is not a good choice if you are really hungry. We were seated upstairs. The noise level was not bad at all, which was good as the 6 of us needed to talk, and we were able to do so without trouble.

Piglet came well recommended and it lived up to that recommendation.
The food was fabulous( and very well priced).
The service was spot on, casual but efficient.
All four of us were very happy and had a great night.
Well done Piglet.

Our meal at Piglet last year during a stay in Dublin was the highlight of our trip, so we were very much looking forward to revisiting. Unfortunately, during our second visit, we received the worst service we have ever experienced from our male server. He was rude, service was slow, and he even asked whether we would like to add a tip to our card payment. This is the first time in our lives that my husband and I have not given a tip!
The food, however, was delicious and we can not fault it in any way.

Had two days in Dublin. Booked Piglet for first night. Food was outstanding and service was over the top. Had booked another restaurant for the second night but my wife liked our experience at Piglet so well we canceled the other restaurant and booked Piglet for the second night. Glad we did. Our hostess remembered us from night before and to very good care of us. Piglet was one of our best experiences in Ireland so far. Will definitely go back if we ever get to Dublin again.

The Piglet was recommended to me by my daughter. I wanted to bring a Spanish friend to a special place, good food , good ambience and good service. Piglet ticket all of the boxes. While it was a busy day, the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. We both enjoyed the meal and the setting. All good!

Such a fun place! We love a decent wine list and theirs was very good. Claire was a delight, let us sample a few wines to order just what we like. She recommended dishes and everything was so delicious. Octopus, deviled eggs, pasta w pork, and the prawns were divine! Plus they played great music. It’s cozy and charming. Highly recommend!

We had a great corner table for 4 in the upstairs area. Would easily have seated 6-8 so we had lots of room, not so much at some other tables. Live music was excellent and just right for the small space. Service was very friendly and professional. Lots of variety and options for a small bite or full meal on the menu and all tasted good.

Nice food and lovely wine. I got the prawns but thought three was a small portion. Also tried the pasta and pork ragu which was lovely. Had chocolate cake for dessert and this was lovely to.

Very enjoyable evening at Piglet with great wine and food. The mussels and prawns were very fresh and tasty. The staff were very helpful from choosing a wine to advising on how much to order between us. They also gave us dessert wine to finish as we were there for a special occasion.
