We shared a mixture of the starters, 2 lots of Deviled eggs, pork croquettes and duck gizzards. They were all very nice but the duck gizzards and soldiers stole the show. For mains we had a meat/cheese board, Cote de Boeuf, Monk fish and Ragu. They were all beautifully presented and full of flavour. We had some lovely wine and dessert wine also. The waiters were very nice and friendly. They gave us a drink on the house before we left which was a lovely gesture.

Nice dining experience at Piglet. In city for haircut in the area, decided to have a light meal out. Very friendly staff, service prompt and food tasty. Nice selection of wine too. We had the cheese and meat board. Lovely selection of meat and cheeses, olives, grapes and chutney it was served and waiter explained selection. GF bread available which was a bonus. Masks worn by staff and areas well cleaned down between diners.

Delicious and refreshing main dishes, desserts on the classic side (tiramisu; cheesecake) and a wine card that is hard to beat. We had a great experience.

Lovely food and wine. Helpful staff. Appreciated our feeling we’d prefer to be outside at this time. A bit pricey maybe but I’m not used to Dublin prices! A perfect way to celebrate with friends and have our first meal out in four months.

Beautiful food and wine. Cosy, welcoming place and service. They went the extra mile by realising we are sharing every plate although we didn't say. Plates were served accordingly and in perfect order to build our palate. They serve Tokaji wine which is a rare plus! Thank you, we will be back! Best Regards, Annamaria

Cheese board and wine was very good, piri piri prawns were a massive letdown, only got two prawns and it wasn’t good value at €14.50, wine was very good.

We had a very pleasant experience having a meal at Piglet. Although we thought we had booked a table we were asked to sit at the bar. At first, we were disappointed because we were near the door and it was chilly but the staff were very helpful and moved us to the other side to sit at the bar. Although we had hoped for a table upstairs and a table did not become free, we were very happy because the staff were so nice and accommodating, the food was delicious and actually we enjoyed the informality of the bar and upstairs sounded more noisy. The kitchen is visible from the bar and is very clean and the staff are working really hard all the time. We had mussels and gnocci and both were delicious and the (house) wine was good quality. We will go back.

my main quibble would be the change of sittings at 8pm. we arrived along with a hoard of other diners at the same time. it's not pleasant when the entire restaurant sittings change at exactly the same time- the staff are stressed and hence the diners. could you not stagger the sittings??
the food was good but a tad overpriced for what was fairly basic food. While we enjoyed what we had chosen, the couple at the table next to us clearly didn't'...

Food was superb, everything we had was so tasty. Scallops and prawns for starters, Cote de bouef , venison and pasta for mains, plates were cleaned(as much as possible, code de bouef has a lot of tasty beef). Wine we had was perfect also. Good atmosphere and service also

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!

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.
