Expert review of Olesya's Wine Bar

The wine list is the star of the show in Olesya's romantic setting.

This is perfect for a gossip with friends or a first date, with just enough people, dark lighting and intimate seating to keep the mood light and easy. It's a relaxing space, and you'll enjoy great conversation. The service is outstanding.

Food and drink: 

The wine is the star of the show and the food plays a blinder as the support act. There are lots of platters to complement the quality wines, or the dinner menu is an interesting mix of French and Italian dishes. 

Recommended dishes: 

Try one of the platters to share over wine. The international platter has a nice mix of Italian, French and Irish nibbles. The risotto or pasta of the day is usually delicious.

Ambience: 

It's chatty, cafe style with intimate seating to keep the atmosphere bubbly.

Service: 

The excellent staff are only too willing to advise you on the wine list. 

Location: 

Exchequer street is in the middle of Dublin's liveliest quarter for nightlife. 

Price advice: 

A 'little bites' menu from 12.30-7pm (Sunday-Friday) offers great value snacks. 

Tables to book: 

There are window tables for people watching and when the sun shines, the windows are open for an al fresco feel.
