Description: Roly's Bistro opened in Dublin in November 1992 and quickly became one of the city's busiest and best loved restaurants. Its reasonably-priced menu and wine list together with a casual, light-hearted atmosphere made it an instant hit with everybody from romantic couples to families, from business executives to local and visiting celebrities. Today, a team of 27 chefs serve freshly-cooked food to over three thousand people a week without compromising on quality and standards. Fresh heated bread is baked daily in the bakery.

Have been to Roly's a good few times for lunch and for dinner. The food is always outstanding, so fresh and beautifully presented. I love the crab and avocado bruschetta, definitely one of my favourites. Their steaks are perfectly cooked and there is an excellent selection of desserts too.

The atmosphere is lovely - it's quite a large restaurant so even when it's really busy you never feel like you're sitting on top of another table.

The staff are lovely and always so helpful. Would recommend this place for anyone from couples to family and friends, you will not be disappointed.

Truelly excellent meal and superb staff. Every member of staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant. This restaurant never fails to please.

We've just returned from a birthday dinner for my mum. 7 of us visited the restaurant to spoil her but unfortunately we've been left sorely disappointed.
The service was very poor, took forever to get anything. My dad had the dover sole and ordered a side of fries, he nearly had his fish finished before his side arrived, after we'd asked mike times.
One waiter in particular was downright rude, grabbing dessert menus from our hands when we asked to see the set menu choices (to compare).
Food was generally good but service seriously let this famous establishment down.
We will not return.

Pitched up for lunch with my wife and her sister. Seated upstairs at a lovely table on a very busy Friday. Three course lunch for 28 euros. Lots of choice and large quantities. I had the Dover sole ( for which there was a modest surcharge) and it was exquisite. My companions had pork and pot pie and pronounced both to be excellent. Deserts were outrageously good. Service was professional and friendly. We walked away shaking our heads at the value for money we had received. Would go back in a heartbeat.
