Paid my fourth visit to this wine bar recently and I love the place! I have only ever had drinks here and have yet to try the food. A lovely setting, cosy and friendly. Worth a visit.

Ate here the other evening during a short stay in Dublin. A great place in that you can go in just for a glass of wine, or a snack or a full meal. We started with prosecco and a selection from the 'nibbles' menu (what a great idea), then had a main course with glasses of wine from the extensive... More

My friend and I stumbled upon this gem last night while searching for a good place to eat. While we were looking for food, it turns out that the main attraction here is the wine. The wine list is an incredible thick book of about 10-12 pages, listing wines by type and country of origin. The menu was a more... More

The food here isn't the main draw. A starter of pate was pretty average while the main course of confit duck leg was very well prepared and quite tasty. The cheese board contained a good selection. The wine list is great, containing some interesting wines from unusual places as well as the more standard options, all at reasonable prices. Nice... More

My first night in Dublin, I had a Russian soup with a New Zealand wine... not what you'd expect! But after having the Solyanka soup here at Olesya's, it was the best decision of my trip. I wondered in simply because I'm wine girl, not a beer girl, and knew I'd get enough pub visits in over the week... and... More

After seeing a play one night, my husband and I were looking for a place to eat but found the choices limited in the downtown area. We stopped at Olesya's, hoping to find at least a snack, and were pleased to find that they serve food until 11 PM (12 PM on Fridays and Saturdays). We had fondue and salad,... More

No suggestions re food or drink made - waited AGES for her to even come to our table after we sat down. Never checked were OK any time during our meal and again had to call... More
