“Excellent Food, Highly Recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

I was in Roast recently with a friend, and it was one of the best meals I've had out in a Dublin restaurant in some time.

The menu had a really good selection and I found myself having plate envy even though my own dinner was delicious.

The staff were lovely, very friendly and relaxed and they had really good knowledge about the dishes and were a pleasure to deal with.

I will certainly be returning and I would recommend this place to everyone.

“dinner for two”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We availed of a GRAB ONE voucher to dine out in Roast. The food was very good and well presented by friendly and courteous staff. at 7euro a glass the wine was not cheap and a total bill of 69 euro for two courses and two glasses of wine was a bit expensive and as there were only four diners (including ourselves) at 8pm on a Friday night Roast might do well to review their prices.

“Great food.. change the decor..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

The food here is superb. The service is excellent. Value for money is good. But the decor is dire. The place is like a factory canteen.Dined here with my partner. It's about as intimate as being in the 02 arena. This place is devoid of personality. It has huge potential. Get a designer in and start the change process. ... You are on to a winner..

“All local”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

This restaurant has a clean and simple look and it is clear! The effort goes into the cooking and presentation. We would have liked to eat here again but ran out of evenings in the Ballsbridge area! The meat dishes were varied and well cooked and the vegetables were fresh, in season and tasty.
