We had a lovely meal for two on a great deal from Pigsback. The deal was limited to Sunday & Monday, but suited us perfectly for a family occasion. We had 3-course dinner for two from a set menu plus a bottle of wine for €50, really good value. The wine wasn't brilliant, a slightly bland Reisling, but we did... More

Service, food, and atmosphere is great. Just a wonderful place to dine. The fish and chips dish and the vegetarian dish we had were both excellent. Also good was the Chilean Chardonnay. There is a restaurant within the bistro that can also be booked. However the menu is not that different and the bistro has better prices. Highly recommend!

It's not, we had the early bird dinner menu and from the time we walked in to the time we left, it was wonderful The food and service were excellent. The portions well also very generous. All in all,... More

This very popular venue was easy to access, gave prompt and pleasant service and really tasty and inexpensive food. I haven't been here in a... More

Description
Roly's Bistro opened in Dublin in November 1992 and quickly became one of the city's busiest and best loved restaurants. Its reasonably-priced menu and wine list together with a casual, light-hearted atmosphere made it an instant hit with everybody from romantic couples to families, from business executives to local and visiting celebrities. Today, a team of 27 chefs serve freshly-cooked food to over three thousand people a week without compromising on quality and standards. Fresh heated bread is baked daily in the bakery.
