We had the 3 course menu from the early bird side of the menu for 28 euros. The wine list has a great variety of wines from Europe and Australia-no heavy reds. The mozzarella and beets had great flavors and the peach and green beans...More

You will not find better food in Dublin, at this price, for lunch. It is a real find right in the centre of things. Innovative modern fare at a very good price served by truly professional, warm and capable staff who clearly enjoy their job....More

Everything from the intimate atmosphere (with floor to ceiling windows looking over trinity college) to the serving staff and the food was impeccable! The buffalo mozzarella salad with beets made me moan. I’m not kidding. Weird for a salad to do that right? All else...More

I’ve had many lunches and dinners here over the past few years and have yet to have even one mediocre dish. Top quality food, new dish interpretations, exquisite presentation, excellent service, and all well priced. It really is the Best of the Best.

Our last meal on a nearly 3 week tour of the UK and Ireland and the best meal of the trip. Really interesting food combinations (without being outlandish), reasonable wine selection, good service and atmosphere. Highly recommended

Lunch is 12:00 - 2.45pm. Why don't you ring them (or email them on info @ thepigsear . ie) and try and book a table, I'm sure they will tell you. This isn't fast food, you don't want to rush it, so I suspect around 2pm... More
