Nice bistro for breakfast

The area where Roly's is located is best of Dublin. This is somewhat upscale to Dublin, breakfast is mostly suits ;) Food is really good, the service also. One star dropped because of fumble in the check, nothing major.

We ate here as we were staying nearby and it had been recommended by a friend who knows Dublin well. It was a celebratory meal, and they surpassed our expectations. The food was great, service prompt but not rushed, and whilst not cheap, we felt it was excellent value for money. The staff were all pleasant and we'd definitely go... More
