    Had 3 course price fixed dinner. Decent choices where available. I had the spicy fish cakes as an appetizer which were quite good. Thai sauce complemented very well. Main course had the Hake which was light and fresh. Overall food was good. Service was fast which I would have preferred to be a bit slower on a leisurely Sat night.

    Excellent restaurant with good value and professional service. Myself and my wife have been eating in Rolys for over 30 years and it has remained one of the best restaurants in Dublin. A real gem.

    Not the rolys of old. I had a lamb pie and it was entirely carrots and parsnips. lobster bisque was underwhelming.

    Back in Dublin after about 10 years absence and was keen to introduce my wife to some of the joys of the city, so I had booked a table at Roly's. What better way? Great to see the old place and glad to see it prospering and modernised - but in a good way. Also great to see that the standards are as high as ever and the welcome as warm too.
