Wine Bar
Piglet is a wine bar & restaurant in the quiet side of Temple Bar in Dublin.
No mention in glamorous guides but the wine is bloody good and the food seasonal and as good as the wine!

If you cannot find the time slot that you are looking for, please give us a call and we will try to accommodate the best we can.

Please note that during the week-ends bookings of up to 3 guests may be seated at the bar as our upstairs dining room is filling up very quickly.

Another absolutely lovely evening at Piglet, one of our very favourite spots in Dublin. Always so well-looked after by the wonderful staff who go out of their way to ensure that every need is met (for instance, asking if we would like to be moved to a more comfortable table when it became available). We went for the cote de boeuf - a really delicious meal for two - after the gorgeous onion soup. No compromising on flavour here. We enjoyed that with an excellent wine - Languedoc-Roussillon Red Minervois 2018 - from their diverse list. Cannot recommend Piglet highly enough!

Unremarkable food. Remarkably bad service! Was over charged and waiter refused to alter bill. Bizarre!

Good wine selection cosy atmosphere and worth popping in if you are up that end of the city centre. I did not have any main courses, just a few starters which were fine. Really good service from the staff who were attentive without being overbearing.

Our table which was booked for 9.30 was not ready when we arrived . It ended up being ready a little before 10pm . They apologized etc.. but I think they could have offered us a glass of wine while we waited out of courtesy.. great place but need more decor upstairs- walls very plain ... some French cafe style music would be good..

Orrechiette with Pork Ragù didn’t seem completely fresh, and the croquetas were a little too rich - too many ingredients. Overall a little more shabby interior than the reviews highlight, with Wine boxes all over the stairs. nice service but overall not great value.

Although it was inexplicably quiet on a Friday afternoon in mid November, my family had a lovely lunch in Piglet. The food is mostly classics and good ideas, simply executed. The wines are awesome, by the glass choices for everything from the most traditional to the most adventurous tastes. Service was cheery, attentive and the right balance between friendly and professional.

The food was very good and the wine pairings were nice. Unfortunately, after making my reservation, the restaurant called to let me know that I would need to sit at the bar or outside on a cold night (there were heaters but it wasn't enclosed) because they needed to accommodate a large party. After that, I would have expected them to be gracious to us but that was not the case.

piglet wine bar is always a go to for me. You're guarenteed to get good food, wine, and service and it is in a nice part of Temple Bar. Would highly recommend for a date night or any visitors coming to Dublin.

Menu was varied but unsatisfying to both meat eaters and vegetarians. Portions were tiny for the price charged and the wine starts at $28 a bottle and ramps up quickly from there. Very disappointing .

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.

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.

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.
