Roly's Bistro opened in Dublin in November 1992 and quickly became one of the city's busiest and best loved restaurants. Its reasonably priced menu and wine list together with a casual, light-hearted atmosphere made it an instant hit with everybody from romantic couples to families, from business executives to local and visiting celebrities.
Today a team of 27 chefs serves freshly-cooked food to over three thousand people a week without compromising on quality and standards. Fresh bread is baked daily in the bakery.
In Roly's Bistro - The Restaurant and its Food, award-winning chef Colin O'Daly gives a flavour of the day-to-day workings of this busy bistro and its bakery, while Chef de Cuisine Paul Cartwright selects more than 60 recipes from the seasonal menus. These include long-standing favourites and signature dishes such as Prawn Bisque and Kerry Lamb Pie as well as popular breads and desserts.
This book is a celebration of all that is special about Roly's: the food, the wines, the atmosphere, and the people who make it what it is.
