    The terrace felt a bit squashed, too many tables , too busy , too noisy , my 82 yo mother and myself asked to sit near the wines outside the terrace especially as Covid no’s have risen , it was lovely sitting out of the terrace -otherwise crab cakes were just beautiful and service was vg except the waiter kept passing me my dish from my mothers side instead of coming around to my side -there was no need to pass over . Waiting staff were v nice but we did feel we were being rushed -I don’t think it was their fault I feel they were probably told to be attentive which is great but maybe a little bit too much -

    When greeted we were brought to the main restaurant instead of the terrace, when this was pointed out the redirecting process was muddled and unprofessional with the waiter walking so far ahead we lost him. I ordered a starter and when it arrived it was not the starter I ordered and when I pointed this out I was told that was the only salad available. I was asked if I would like something different, but the point is that I should have been advised my choice was not available prior to something else being placed in front of me. My friend asked for an alternative to rocket salad on the side of her main dish and the alternative was ' nothing' ,again with no confirmation that no alternative to rocket salad was available. When the coffee arrived, most of it was on the saucer and was just left like that. I will not be returning and would recommend that they treat their customers better as the experience was dreadful and the price did not warrant the service and food received.

    On the basis of breakfast ( v good). I booked dinner( not good). Mediterranean veg was 2 pieces from of pepper, a half a bag of wilted rocket. Onion and a tiny piece of aubergine soaked in a dressing. I mentioned that it wasn’t good to the waitresses twice. When paying the manager appeared and I explained to him.

    Lovely dinner - deep fried Brie delicious - scampi delicious - wings delicious - steak delicious. Have rebooked for Saturday 7 May party of 6 this time and looking forward to it 👍 service was friendly and professional. Also just to advise that I call to see my uncle who is 91 every few weeks and he LOVES Rolys Danish pastries - so I ring the morning of my visit and order 4 Danish pastries and staff again very helpful and friendly - thank you for making an old man happy with your Danish pastries

    Have been here many times before and enjoyed it, however like a lot of other establishments they are obviously struggling for staff. Waitress did not know what a slimline tonic was, we then said a light tonic and she still did not know what this was and asked us to point it out on the menu. It took 20 minutes for our aperitifs to arrive. When we got our bill there were 2 extra main courses on it. Manager came and apologized and gave us a free drink. Food was lovely but service was a bit chaotic

    First time back in Rolys since the pandemic. We have eaten in Rolys Cafe on numerous occasions and were always very happy with it. This time we were in the New Rolys Terrace which looks lovely. We ordered a bottle of Malbec which was priced at €29.50 but were a bit taken aback when it was served to us - it was a Los Cardos Malbec which we buy most weekends in Dunnes Stores for €8.00! This kind of coloured the rest of the meal. I had the Brie to start which was lovely and my husband had the Sliders which were ok. I had the Burger as a main and my husband had the Fish and Chips. Both mains were really good. We then had 2 weak/watery Cappuccinos. When we got our bill we had been charged for 2 desserts we didn't have and also a more expensive starter. To be fair once we pointed this out to the waitress she corrected the bill and apologised. Overall staff were very friendly and pleasant. I thought the restaurant lacked atmosphere and standards seem to have slipped. The menu was limited and I don't think we would be in a hurry back. It's a pity because we really enjoyed all our previous meals there.

    Was my first time back in rolys since opening the terrace Food is always good but service was disappointing; no one asked did we even want dessert and the fact it wasn’t so busy it just felt like we were not getting good service because we were a table of two as opposed to a larger group. We sat there for about 30 mins after our meals and plates empty

    First visit. Was quite busy. we were seated quickly but service was slow and twice waiters forgot to bring menus and a menu order. No music! Our meals were delicious . The place was quite un-diverse both in staffing and clientele ...always sad to see.

    The crab main for approx 17 euro is very tasty. But portion size is absurd. One very small brushetta. Portion is a very small starter/appetizer. Server not friendly, actually quite grumpy.

    It wasn’t up to Roly’s usual standard. Very disappointing and certainly wouldn’t eat on the terrace again! It didn’t seem that wait staff had designated tables, we had about 6 people (maybe more) serve the table. Dessert was only arriving as we were leaving (although we had already had to cancel as it took so long and we had already finished our tea). Kids menu was the most expensive I’ve seen anywhere. They are charging €10.50 for a kids’ pasta in tomato sauce, that’s some mark up! Roly’s - what’s happened to you? Not the service level we expect from you!

    Food at Rolys is very good if a little overpriced as regards quantity. Service was also good, however the cleanliness and impression of the bathroom facilities for such an upmarket restaurant left a lot to be desired. Also, despite the current wildfire spread of Covid, staff had not been reverted to wearing masks and in an overcrowded setting as it was on the day of our visit, this was very off-putting - we are not done with this pandemic yet!

    I enjoyed a Tuesday night visit to the outdoor terrace. It was quiet but it had atmosphere. My guest and I both had prawn dishes and each of us waxed lyrical. We had a lovely glass of New Zealand Wine with our mains and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Roly's is a reliable restaurant the food and service are consistently good.
