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.

A favourite spot that I don’t get to visit as much anymore but a true gem in the heart of the city. Food punches so far above its weight and do I love to see proper wines by the glass. Above all else it’s the warmth of the welcome and the perfectly pitched service. It makes me smile !

Aside from being out of several wine selections by the bottles, but enough of a varied list to suffice, nicely prepared, small but varied menu, excellent service in a casual, bit funky room. Great location near but off the path of obnoxious, nearby wobbly bar mongers

very disappointing that they have not made adequate provision for wheelchair users in this restaurant. But managed to get a table for two installed downstairs.
Disappointing food. It was okay, but no more. A nice place to sit outside during the summer, maybe, and have some of the pinchos With wine. The main courses are very bland.

it was the type of place that you’re groovy you went at least once toga e a drink with friends with some bites, but not the one that will become you HQ because it’s quite expensive for what it offers overall (3€ for one single tapas is too exagerate- it is not like you had cabiaryon it)
To summarize it was nice but I won’t go back instinctively

Fantastic place, the duck gizzard was class, quietest coolest part of temple bar, so good sitting outside with a glass of wine, the music was not keeping with the theme or vibe as it was techno dance tunes, but other than that my new go to place
