Great location, fantastic food and portioning. Delightful customer service, overall great relaxed dining experience.
Omfg the pork belly is too die for! Views are stunning! Service was exceptional! I’ll definitely be going back
Great restaurant with amazing views over the valley. Food is delicious, cocktails are even better. Bonus that it is family friendly with a kids area. Cant fault it.
New management and a fresher new approach to the old Roleys. Good luck.
We've been to Roley's many times over 8-9 years. This time, dinner for 6. It wasn't crowded, but the first round of drinks (6 cocktails) were very slow, 15-20 minutes. I had two bourbon Old Fashioned's over the night - got two completely different drinks. Margarita had no lime juice or salt rim, Long Island Iced Tea was mainly coke. Several items not on the menu, and it's become a pretty limited dinner menu (one steak option?). Entrees ok, but the Tasting plate is pretty much out of a bottle, Arancini flavourless and gluey. Loaded potatoes were good, as was the bread, and damper. Mains - first 4 came out, then 2 steaks after another 5 minutes. Super Green salad was genuinely good and interesting. But creamy mash wasn't creamy (needed sieving, and more butter), skin-on chicken wasn't skin on, vegetable curry with ONE pappadum (can you spare it?), and kinda bland. Pork belly soft, roasted pumpkin hard. Maybe the burgers on the lunch menu will be ok - line-ball if we ever go back for dinner, which is sad for us because good options are hard to find in this part of the world.
We were a bit disappointed in the limited menu selections for vegetarians and the Garden Burger vegetarian option was not available which I only found out when the wrong burger topped with bacon was brought out to the table and I explained that wasn’t what I ordered. The Buddha Bowl was very nice however as I asked for that as a substitute. The garlic bread was a little bit burned. The dessert was very nice however the flat white I ordered at the end of the meal never came and so we just decided to leave and settle the bill. I don’t think we’ll be returning mainly due to very limited vegetarian options
Sadly we would not visit this restaurant again. We were visiting the area to celebrate two family birthdays and thought we would take the punt and step outside of our usual haunts in Freo. We were not rewarded! It took 45mins to receive our first round of drinks to only to be given the wrong order. XPA not Rogers. Apparently the guest beer had left for the day as they had sold out of Little Creatures XPA so was slim pickings on the re-order. That should have given us some insight into what was to come but ever the optimist we stuck it out. Wrong move....... Communication was a BIG issue. There was confusion everywhere you looked. One table left as nobody came to take there order...meals were going to the wrong tables and the arguments between the front of house staff and the kitchen were unprofessional and quite frankly embarrassing. When patrons need to collect their own meals because theirs was the only meal waiting patiently to be collected by anyone there is a problem. Having said all of that the best was reserved for our table... whilst three out of five meals arrived when we were still eating our entrees, we waited patiently for the other two to arrived. In the meantime we watched other patrons complain about their experience, witnessed dirty glasses pile up in the front bar and WE had to redirect food to the correct tables. FINALLY we asked our stressed out waitress if the other two meals were coming... they had been completely forgotten. Full disclosure the restaurant gave us a 25% unsolicited discount and we did say we would never be back. In some serious need of help from hospitality professionals. Mentors apply within.......
usually can write good reviews on roleys but long wait for the meal nearly an hour service and kitchen staff seemed streclhed ate here many times before this was the first time we had hiccup with the long wait and not the best meal restaurant was empty by the time we left - put it down as a one off for now.
All very good. Nice setting, we got there at midday and got a table in the balcony area with the views over the trees. The service was very attentive and good throughout. The food was very nice, home cooking style, good choice and portions. No complaints, and reasonably priced.
The place is fantastic. Unfortunately quality of the food has gone down hill a long way from the past. The meal was not special. The mash and pork was dry and there was only a small amont of vegetables. Do not usually write reports but was fairly disappointed with our visit as it has always been much better in the past. (We haven’t been for a couple of years).
