Lovely wine bar

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

Went to Olesya's Wine Bar quite late at night and there were still quite some guest enjoying drinks. I was recommended a nice Sauvignon Blanc by the lady serving and had the glass out on the tables on the street. Service was fast and nice and the wine was good.

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.
