I admit wine matters for me - but I went to Olesya's looking for dinner on a busy Friday evening. The wine list is interesting, and the wine I picked was very good. But the food was also top-notch (including scallops and black pudding as a main). Other tables were clearly enjoying the cheese/cold meat platters on offer. Service was... More

Popped in to this wine bar with a friend. Fabulous decor with major attention to detail, we sat for hours enjoying it!!. Got the smoked salmon starter and cheese board, washed down with some fabulous wine. The staff were so attentive and friendly, 10/10!! I'll definitely be back for a main course and some more wine! The best night in... More

We popped into Olesya's Wine Bar after a frustrating pub crawl in Dublin. It was on the late side on a Sunday evening and, I think, Olesya's was close to closing but we were welcomed in and allowed to order. We kept it light because it was late but had a fantastic variety of food. I especially loved the beet... More

Neat spot across from Fallon and Bryne. Great selection of mixed price ranges of wine. We didn't eat the food looked but it looked good. Neat spot for a glass of wine early in the evening or after a nice dinner. Seemed to be a crowd for over 35 just from my observations. Would definitely go there again.

After the busy through of people in temple bar area, we found this lovely wine bar just round the corner. Great selection of wines by the glass and bottle, lots of snack options and a great peach Bellini made a great lazy afternoon.

Our first visit to this pleasant Wine Bar and Bistro today and we were welcomed by the friendly Carlos. Being mid afternoon we chose Risotto from the set menu - which we highly recommend. Carlos allowed us a choice tasting of 3 wines - a Shiraz and Merlot were selected and complimented our Risotto perfectly! Coffee finished the meal with... More

We happened upon Olesya's when a nearby restaurant was full. What serendipity! We just loved this charming wine bar, offering pleasantly varied and delicious selections and first-rate quality. We enjoyed warm, friendly and professional service and had a really fun evening. Don't miss this little gem - we'd return in a heartbeat!
