We booked Roly's for the a retirement lunch and 11 staff attended. The food was excellent and we thought the set lunch extremely good value. The service was pleasant and attentive and we had a lovely table by the window. The acoustics were particularly good and it was great to be able to hear all the conversation at our own... More

After hearing about this restaurant over the years eventually got there on Sunday night unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations. Firstly very busy with waiters literally running all over the place - yes I know its a bistro and not fine dining but at these prices you should expect some finesse. Food tasty but nothing too exciting -... More

We were so thrilled we went to this place for dinner, our taxi driver recommended it and after checking reviews on Tripadvisor we thought we must try it so once again the reviews on this site didn't let us down. The service was very prompt and friendly, the table beautifully decorated with white linen table clothes and beautiful cutlery then... More

It was a thursday night and Rowly's was packed with people. No doubt it's popular because it has maintained its standards over rhe years. the place is vibrant, staff are excellent and food is good. Although it is pricey but no doubt is worth it.

After a long day hopping on an off city tour busses and visiting the sights, my party of four were in need of a good meal. Having no reservation was not a problem as we were immediately seated and began our sumptuous evening meal. The tomato and fennel soup was tasty and fresh, as was the selection of breads that...
