    The evening of New Year’s Day, place was close to empty, food was rushed out and the staff decided to mop the floor around us as we ate……not good enough by any standard.

    No Christmas atmosphere. Service poor. Left standing at front door while staff chatted. Had to ask and ask for menus then told abruptly we all had to eat Christmas menu if anyone wanted it. Very disappointing experience for the 5 of us out for a Christmas lunch. No consistency with waiting staff.

    Have been to Rolys a number of times so wasn’t expecting a below-par experience like we had. In short - when we arrived, the maitre d didn’t seem to be ready for any customers despite our arriving at exactly our reservation time - very few waiters in the room. At one stage there were none, which I had never seen before in a restaurant. So service was poor - took an age to clear our starters, perhaps twenty minutes, which wasn’t ideal as we were off to a match straight after we ate - it was a friend’s birthday at the table and I had ordered a cake. It didn’t arrive. To be fair, they arranged a dessert portion with “happy birthday” on it, but it’s not the same. At this stage it was too late to complain as we had the match to go to but, for a restaurant renowned for its hospitality, this was a new experience for us all. We’ll be back but I hope this experience was a one off as the food is always good.

    I must say food quality was amazing as always, however we had to wait one hour, for our meal , I don’t know why Maybe because we got large portion of chicken wings to share, which was exactly eight of them, so maybe they thought we still on the starter Glass area is quite chilly so be prepared

    energy crisis - feels as if you couldn't pay your electricity bill - it was so dark and the table lamps found it difficult to read the menu. We had booked the pre theatre menu in before 6.30pm, there was a different menu on the table and when I asked they said they were too busy to have that menu on. Only I repeated myself did we get the menu we booked. Prawns €11 supplement - omg the portion size did not justify €11 supplement. Lovely treat but disappointed in sitting in a dark room lit by candle light (Lamp lit)

    We enjoyed the food however the terrace was really cold. Unfortunately we were freezing for the duration of our meal.

    Roly’s Bar & Terrace RestaurantResponded on December 11, 2022Thank you for bringing this to our attention EdwinaO. It is unacceptable for the room to be uncomfortable. There has clearly been an error in the control of the heaters. There are seven high-powered overhead heaters - ample for the size of the room. Please email Tom C on evenents@rolysbistro.ie we will revert to you immediately, Tom C, Roly's

    Service was really poor - slow - untrained - leaving dishes in front of us for ever while standing there taking order for tea and coffee - the bill came with two different waitresses - one after we had paid- still meal plates on table! So lovely place and nice food but if you are on your lunch break - I would give it a miss!

    Food was quite good, I ordered a steak medium rare and it was basically blue but still nice. The treatment that the redheaded manager subjected the staff to though would put me off ever returning, the man was on a power trip and it looked like this was his every day demeanour, ignorant to guests and especially ignorant to junior staff. He needs a reality check, he manages a restaurant, he's not a CEO of a company.

    We had lunch for 2 on the Terrace, ordered from the menu with wine and bread. The meal arrived first, then after 2 reminders the wine and after 3 reminders, the bread arrived. This poor service impacted the enjoyment of the meal. The young people who served were extremely pleasant and apologetic, but it was clear that their training and mentoring was poor.

    Roly’s Bar & Terrace RestaurantResponded on August 26, 2022Thank you CaoimheD, Indeed we are on Phase Three (and the final phase) of the transformations at Roly's. Our brand new Bar should be operational with a few weeks. The past two years have seen the full refurbishment of The Bistro our upstairs restaurant followed by the new-build of our 60 seat Terrace Restaurant and now our new bar. All well on schedule as we prepare to celebrate Roly's ' 30th year Anniversary. Best from all at Roly's
