Literally my favourite restaurant in dublin for dinner. The mixed seafood starter is quite possibly the best starter I've ever had. The main courses never disappoint and I'm always keen to try something new on the menu. The crumble desserts are Devine!!!!

Rolys has always been such a treat for lunch. The staff are attentive and professional without being overbearing. From the delicious selection of fresh breads to the mouth watering desserts it has to one of the best lunch spots in town. Looking forward to returning again soon!
