Nice place

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.

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

Attended here for lunch while shopping in town. Overall had a decent experience, the soup was quite pleasant, and the beef stronganoff was relatively tasty. None of it was particularly notable, however, and it proved difficult at time to get the attention of the waiting staff (not that they were lazing, there just perhaps wasn't enough staff present). I would... More

Went one Friday whilst visiting Dublin purely by chance, but found a gem. Myself and my better half went for the basic soup & sandwich option, with a glass of Pinotage each. A second glass followed and when the bill arrived, was pleasantly surprised that the young (and knowledgeable) waiter informed me that the second glass was on the house.... More

This wine bar has more than 400 wines on offer, a very extensive and interesting wine list with a good variety and reasonable prices. The food is more of the tapas style although there are main courses. The prices are reasonable considering Dublin is generally expensive. And the ambience is excellent. A great place to drop in for a drink... More
