Roly's is one of the most well reviewed restaurants in Dublin. It had a great atmosphere and good service. The food was good, but perhaps a little overrated. My husband and I had steak: it's was cooked well overall, but the cuts were sparing. The menu was not as creative as I would have expected. A good meal, for sure,... More

I would go to Roly's about 2/3 times per year for Sunday lunch and it never, ever disappoints. The food is always tasty, the service is prompt and attentive and the bill is never too steep. I encourage you to try it out.

Food was fantastic, as it always is at Roly's. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and struck the perfect balance between attentiveness and leaving us to enjoy our meal.

And Rolys' always cook them to perfection! I'd like to say that I'd tried all of the other favourites on the Rolys' menu, but faced with a choice,... More

Loved this restaurant which was always consistant but on the last visit there was nothing new and the seats could do with refurbishment. Lots of options to choose from so wouldn't be heading back again.
