Had to call in seeing they had 100 wines by the glass. Good range with knowledgable staff. Their pours are quarter of a bottle to the glass. They have larger plates of food but their platters to share over a couple of glasses are good idea. If you like a glass of wine in nice surroundings then this is your... More

My partner and I went for the 3 course lunch menu. Great value, tasty food, fantastic service, lovely wine (recommended by the waiter), relaxed atmosphere.....what more could you ask for?? They also accepted a 5 year old voucher that we had misplaced with absolutely no problem.....something that wouldn't happen in a lot of places. Overall I couldn't recommend the place... More

We have been going to Olesya's now for a number of years and each time we can't wait to come to Dublin again to go there. It's a charming wine bar that serves a very compact but delicious menu. Each time we've been we have tried something different on the menu and have never been disappointed. The wines are fabulous... More

My girl and I have visited Dublin for two weeks, in that period we've gone in this place for 3 times... We've found quality as well in the products as in the service, so to become our favorite place where spend some nice time drinking a glass of wine (250 ml each one) and eating something...

After a horrible experience at Jo'Burher down the road, my friends and I decided that we needed a drink. We had no reservation, we just wanted to get a glass of wine. The wine selection was superb, staff so nice. I had a look at the menu we will definitely be back. The wine was delicious. The Argentinian Malbec was... More

The wine selection here was impressive, especially the choices available by the glass. The wait staff were very friendly, and the risotto special was excellent. The place is warm and sophisticated, but not stuffy.

We grabbed a table outside this week. Lots of house rules about time and must eat etc etc. This is a hamburger only joint selling alcohol also. The location is good on a busy thoroughfare. The waiters - all with trendy lots of facial hair - were cheerful and efficient. We went for the fish option and without bread. So... More

Visited with a friend who had a Deal Rush voucher. This had been mentioned when booking but waiter didn't seem too happy about it. It would take a week to read the wine list, fantastic range, but food menu very minimal. The food was good and nicely served. I didn't find the staff very friendly and consequently not much of...

Wanted light meal with nice wine before going to the Riverdance performance at the Gaiety Theatre. We ordered one platter and two glasses of wine. There were only two other groups in the restaurant and the waiter got our order incorrect. We had the veggie platter which was good, but drastically overpriced. The waiter just hung out behind the counter... More
