Roberta’s Restaurant and Rooftop Bar is a beautifully designed space, with contemporary cuisine served to you beneath a bespoke glass ceiling! Nestled between 1 East Essex St and Wellington Quay, this spacious eatery is open for dinner 7 days a week with brunch served at the weekend.
Head Chef, Troy Watson, has put together a brand-new menu, packed with flavour and tasty fare. Aside from a nice variety of gorgeous mains, you can also try out the beautiful, fresh wood fired pizzas from the pizza oven!
Roberta’s is filled with volumes of natural light pouring through the fantastic windows on either side of the building – and through one of the key focal points, the breath-taking glass atrium style ceiling. The sky stretches out above you as you grab a comfortable booth, sink into a cosy chair with a frothy beer or a crafted cocktail on the courtyard style terrace, or pull up a stool at the bar.

Roberta's Ratings and Reviews
Venue looks great and has a good vibe but the food and menu options are not up to the same quality.
Waiting staff could also be friendlier. Waitress unwilling to substitute one form of potato for another with the main course - "we can take away but not substitute" - which seemed strange for a new place and was unwilling to check with chef.
Main course of seabass was very dry and lacking.
Food also presented a way too quickly after ordering, as if pre-prepared (possibly prompting the 'no-substitution' rule'!
Beautiful venue in a well located spot. Food was delicious. Loved the duck heart starter. Dessert was a little bit disappointing in comparison to the starter and main. Service was excellent and special word of thanks goes to Rafa for looking after us so well. Will be back!
Really poor experience over all. Very disappointing. I’ve been numerous times since opening, Now it’s clear that they are just providing a generic experience, with a take it or leave it attitude. Service was lack lustre with attitude. Food over priced & mediocre
Not worthy of your precious night out
Great bar. Food ok, fancied pizza and no huge vegetarian options so went with reliable but boring Margherita. Pizza went cold very quick and therefore wasn’t very enjoyable. Service very friendly. I would say that once your 2 hour allocated time for eating is up you are completely left to your own devices. Not a lot of seats for after dinner drinks. We were lucky and eventually nabbed two but if you want people to stay and spend the money then there needs to be a level of comfort. Great cocktails !
The food was incredibly disappointing. The price did not reflect the quality of fare served. Otherwise, the venue is great with a buzzy atmosphere, pleasant staff and an appealing interior. Unfortunately due to the standard of food, I would not recommend Roberta's for dinner. One could always pop in for happy hour/late night drinks. Improve the food and this place could be a real gem!
The place is really nice and staff is very pleasant, however the ambience is not as expected. Very loud with ecco everywhere, too dark and food was not tasty at all. Price vs value was not as expected at all. We had a pizza that was taffy, a salad that was OK, not very tasty for its price and very small and a chicken with carrots that was small and chicken without any flavor at all.
This place looks amazing. It is super stylish and luxurious. The staff on the other hand were dressed in very casual clothes and runners which seemed strange. The food was nice but really nothing special for the price. The chicken was very expensive for a smallish piece of chicken on a few carrots and some gravy. The duck pizza was pretty good though. We had an ice cream sundae each afterwards and again was small and nothing special. Our waitress was excellent and attentive but we were sitting by the wall of windows and it was so cold. We would loved to have stayed longer to have some drinks but we were just too cold!
Overall we had a fantastic experience in Robertas.
The only negative is that towards the end the service was quite slow - we were given a desert menu, but about 15 minutes or so had passed by the time our server came back, we then decided to not go for desert and head home.
Food & cocktails were gorgeous. We were recommended by fellow colleagues to book Robertas, I'll definitely be passing on the recommendation.
I loved the ambiance of the place however the food was just average. I thought the brunch menu was over priced, 16 euro for eggs with salmon and salmon was just a tiny piece. We ordered latte but there was no sugar on the table, no salt. The latte was spilled on the way and was still served regardless. There s so much hype about the place however we didn't really get the value for money and the service was just average. The place has a potential but I found it a little disappointing as we were looking forward to the experience.
The atmosphere was good, especially as it got darker outside. The lady who served us was great.
The food though was very disappointing, it seemed like quantity was emphasised over quality. It was too expensive for what was served.
The serving of cod for the main course was very large, tasteless and not cooked through, raw in the centre. My husband's steak went cold very fast and as a result was not enjoyable beyond the first couple of bites. Our daughters had pasta and pizza and were happy with their food.
Given the cost of the main course it was not good to be asked to spend another €10 per person for potatoes and vegetables.
It was our daughter's birthday so we did not want to make a fuss over the food but I would not be recommending Roberta's to anyone for food. Our experience was that we were charged a lot for very poor food.
Just also to note that the absence of a vegetarian option for the main course was unusual.
We were visiting Dublin from Liverpool for a group 30th celebration and wanted somewhere a bit special that could accommodate a group of 7. We were given a lovely big plush booth which meant the whole group could easily chit chat without having to shout from opposite ends of a table and we enjoyed some cocktails and food. The menu isn't huge but there's something for everyone and it was all delicious. Would recommend the parmesan fries too, yum! It feels really luxury inside and we loved the olive tree behind our booth.
