We called to this restaurant one lunchtime and found street side parking right outside. This is a spotlessly clean eaterie and was quite busy when we called.
We received friendly efficient service and both enjoyed a delightfully tasteful lunch at very reasonable prices. They seem to specialise in Italian style meals and do so very well.
We would both highly recommend Pearla na Mara for value for money, a good menu and friendly staff.

Just back from my 30th birthday dinner with my family here. I booked it after reading great reviews about it. We had an excellent time. The restaurant has beautiful decor and even the bathroom is great, more like a hotel bathroom. Both Bronagh and Justina, the owner went out of their way to cater for our big group of ten adults and two children while making it look effortless. The attention to detail was amazing with both staff making sure we had everything we needed. They even brought colouring sheets for the kids and were very kind and understanding towards my very active two year old.
The food was very tasty, beautifully presented and we ordered a wide variety of dishes from fish to meat to vegetarian. It was all cooked from scratch yet the wait was not long for it. Justina was happy to tailor the meals to our requirements e.g. changing the sauces. We were given lots of complimentary water in lovely bottles. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal and the staff were very helpful in bringing out the birthday cake and dividing it up after.
All in all I had a wonderful birthday night here as did my family. Thanks to Justina and Bronagh and all the best with this great new restaurant.

My family of five had a lovely Saturday evening meal recently. Two of us had duck which was simply delicious. I had monkfish-it was generous and tasty. The house red wine-a Chilean merlot is divine and I am now trying to buy it in the off licence! The owner who was working on the night recommended pumpkin pie. I was so impressed she gave me the recipe.

All in all, this restaurant is excellent with great value for money. The menu suits all tastes and the service was charming.
