About Us

Welcome to the ROAST Experience

Great food in the heart of Ballsbridge, just a short stroll from the famous RDS, home to the Horse Show, Concerts, Sporting Events, Exhibitions and Conventions. A quick hop to other notable locations such as the Aviva stadium and 3 Arena, ROAST restaurant offers superb cuisine, a Grand wine list, and attentive service in a setting that is sophisticated yet fun.

Passionate about Food

Head Chef & Owner Matt Dillon is passionate about really good food. Matt has worked with many Michelin Star Chefs in both the UK and in Ireland, including Richard Corrigan and Paul Flynn and was the Food and Beverage Manager with the Dylan Hotel.

Gastro Pub Menu

Crowe's Pub
You may not know this, but we also supply the food in Crowes Pub downstairs. Quality food in a more informal setting. Crowes, established in 1906, is home to Leinster rugby and a treasure trove of memorabilia, diligently assembled over the years. ROAST is proud to showcase its food in Crowes pub.


Pre-order Your Lunch
Contact us up to half an hour before you require your lunch, pre-order from our lunch menu and we’ll have it waiting for you and your colleagues when you arrive.


Only the Finest
Matt works closely and has built strong relationships with all of his locally sourced suppliers, ensuring the finest quality Irish ingredients. He uses M & K Meats to provide the finest cuts and his signature dish has been created from Lambay Island produce where M & K Meats source their Beef, Lamb, Venison & Wallaby (yes Wallaby!).
