Great selection of wines

Excellent wine, not really good food. Risotto was boring, blinis were most likely from a supermarket. Good place for a glass of wine, nothing more

This wine bar located opposite Fallon and Byrne (No Pressure so) has the best selection of wine by the glass in Dublin I reckon. Some very good choices including Gewurtztraminer and Furmint by the glass. The casual food selection doesn't quite match the high level of the wines but overall the service is very good, and unobtrusive. There are wine... More

Olesya's has an extensive wine list and on the plus side the prices vary greatly so if you're on a budget you can still pop in here! We didn't manage to eat but would return to do so.

Really extensive wine list but reasonable prices. Wil... More

Didn't dine on this occasion but a lovely wine bar with a huge selection of wines. The weather was nice and the whole front was open which really added to a good experience. Look forward to a return visit and will dine next time.

If you're looking for a nice place to eat with friends, family or for a romantic couples dinner: this is the place to be. Friendly staff, good Russian food & a wine menu to die for!

We were looking for a gastro pub but happened on this place and were very pleased. The casual and comfortable atmosphere was as good as the Olesya deluxe cheese and meat plate (€29), served with excellent freshly baked bread. The bottle of Torres Ibericos (€26.95), was incredibly reasonable for such quality tasting red wine. We loved this cute little place.

My wife and first found Olesya's 6 years ago on our first trip to Dublin. We were cash strapped and on a strict budget and stopped in for a glass of wine only to discover the most wonderful cosy warm ambience and soooooo appetising wine list. A bottle of our favorite Chateaux Musar and a plate of cheese later, we... More
