Voucher deal for 5 course tasting menu on a busy Saturday night. Very friendly and efficient staff ensured everything was top notch. The food was very tasty. We had pork & prawns and chicken liver for starters, then chicken and lamb for mains. There was no duck available on the night. Really enjoyed the meal and would go back.

Had a coupon deal for a 5 course but it was booked solid for Friday and Saturday so ended up going Sunday when they don't have the same menu available. Still it had a decent selection and we had a 3 course meal offered in lieu. My husband had the fish cake starter which was very good and I had pork belly and shrimp which sounded interesting but didn't really work. We had the poached cod and ribeye for mains which were both delicious however the steak was not particularly tender though the peppercorn sauce was amazing. Both desserts, chocolate lava cake with ice cream and apple tart were both very good. Overall, it was a good meal at prices in line with others similar restaurants. The main issue we had with the restaurant was the temperature inside. It was an unseasonably warm day and it was uncomfortably warm to the point we had to step out to cool down. It was hard to enjoy a meal when you're overheated and perspiring.

Different that what the name suggested. I was thinking it would be a traditional English Carvery. But it was an upscale restaurant - prices not out of line. Tender steak cooked as requested. Their salmon appetizer was different than what we expected but was extremely tasty.

stayed in Ballsbridge for one night and went out for a meal. Found Roast and what a mistake. The food was terrible, four of us thought the same. The staff were really nice and in the end did not charge for the meal. The place was nice but the chef that night should not have let that food be served. Also the food was served on a block of wood. WHY??????. Sorry Roast but that was our experience.

Have eaten here quite a few times in the past year and the quality and freshness of the food is still as wonderful as my first visit. They put a lot of effort into the presentation of their dishes too. All the staff are warm and friendly. I have been here with my extended family, with my friends and with my other half and on each occasion everyone really enjoyed it.
