This restaurant opened in 1992 and one of the most popular of the city. Roly’s menu is classic with perfectly presented dishes, where the first taste is made with the eyes. Traditional kerry lamb & vegetable pie, Roast vegetable & goat cheese tart or Pan fried Dublin Bay Prawns… There is a dish for everybody and always at the right price. Moreover, there is nothing better than enjoy tasty and creative food in a charming atmosphere and accompanied by an attentive staff.

Located at two steps from the Main stage of The RDS, Roast Restaurant doctrine is simple: provide the best quality food made with fresh seasonal products coming from local farms. With a very ‘French touch’ in its cuisine, the restaurant, as its name suggests it, is very focus on every type of meat. Sorry Vegetarians but you should have a look somewhere else! Let the friendly staff of the Roast take care of you.

Belluccis Restaurant

An Italian restaurant is almost always perfect for hangover. Belluccis is a must in the area. However, if you are looking for a tiny Trattoria, you should forget this one. At Belluccis, the cuisine is classic but with an elaborate touch that makes all the difference. However if you prefer to enjoy a tasty pizza while Mark Ronson sways on Uptown Funk, you can order on Take Away.

Take a few ingredients, simple but different. Then, use a barbecue to reveal the incredible flavour. Finish by adding colors, and beautiful appearance to making of the dishes a real piece of art. This is the concept of the Asador. Simply, one of Dublin’s best restaurants.

The French Paradox Wine Shop and Wine Bar


No paradox here, this restaurant showcases a large range of dishes with french inspiration: Onion soup, Foie gras, Confit de Canard or even Camembert fondu… . It is a great spot if you are looking for Tapas with a very interesting list of Wines with great advice from the staff to guide you.
