First Review by CathyDavid

A bit disappointed - Edit

Quite limited to vegan options. So you wouldn't want to be a picky eater if going here. The food was still pretty good. Huge downfall when I went was a table of about 10 came in just after us. There was a table of two in before us and as already began eating. They must have felt pressured when the large table came in, although my partner and I and the large table booked in advance. But they brought our mains down before I had even finished my starter which really ruined the vibe for me. I understand they wanted it out of the way but the restaurant was no where near full. The staff apologised and we're nice but I probably won't go back again to be honest.

Pros: options were still nice, staff were nice

Cons: felt rushed, not many options

Pricey food and only one vegan option - Edit

There was only one vegan option available (mushroom risotto), which I didn't think was worth the price. The people I was traveling with also felt that their dishes were overpriced.

Pros: friendly staff

Cons: pricey food, uncomfortable ambience

a not to miss dining delight! - Edit

Even if you have to go out of your way, do not miss this lovely restaurant. After trying to find vegan options in some of the local pubs in Ireland, which is so difficult, finding Pearla na Mara was like finding an oasis.
The food was outstanding! Living in NYC we have a lot of vegan restaurant options and I must say this gem could easily stand up.
Owned by a young couple, the wife being vegan and the chef being flexible, the restaurant, although not a vegan establishment showed great flexibility and accommodation. Really delightful.

Pros: very flexible menu, kind and helpful coming up with vegan options, food was delicious

Cons: not strictly a vegan or vegetarian restaurant
