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
Unfortunately this was a very poor experience. Menu direction is all over the place and descriptions are rather odd : a popsicle turned out to be a filled pasta dish! Duck pizza was very under baked, so much so that it wasn't charged for.
It will be some time before I or my host will be back, indeed I havery declined an invitation to meet others there next week. A bright buzzy place, OK service, but needs to find its feet in terms of its food offer.
I have been to Roberta's a couple of times. I love the venue, the openness, the space, the way it is laid out, the interior design and the way an old building has been brought to life. The food is very good without being amazing. I had the jamon iberico starter which was beautifully presented and all tasted great. Had the pizza with parma ham and soft Italian cheese which was also very good. The menu is short and a bit quirky and there quite a few things which I would not eat which is unusual for me. We had excellent service - very attentive, professional, friendly and efficient. We dined on a Sunday evening when there were very few eating but loads hanging around the bar and so it was very noisy which made easy conversation a bit difficult.
Really impressed by this spot. Felt like we could have been in new York ! Loved the decor, the atmosphere&the vibe. Food was great! Blueberry pancakes very good. Service was good, non intrusive but efficient. Would love to go back (when not pregnant) for cocktails!
Loved location surrounding great atmosphere fab. Bar fine. Cocktails good. No showmanship. Food - Jamon does not need cheese all over it to enhance taste it will do it naturally does not need cheese on top . In general food ok acceptable pizza under cooked in parts should be chared all over for sourdough effect. filet steak over cooked leeks over cooked mushrooms not necessary expensive with no accompaniments . Sirloin over cooked same for side accompaniments . Dump mush and leeks vibe.... give a good side order of choice to accompany instead eg chips mash or. .....Something else.... Dessert was miserable. Espresso martini en pointe. Loved everything else will return but will point our bad bits to friend family. Keep going. Will be back and hope slight changes made.
I went with friends for dinner. The starter and cocktails took nearly an hour to arrive. The waiter forgot to order one of our starters so we received it with our main dish. The food was average, but the service was incredibly slow (slow water refills, took a while to bring the bill and the credit card machine, accidentally charged us for an additional dish we didn't get, forgot to put one of the orders in). Has potential to be a lovely place with the ambience and location, but wasn't a great experience.
Being seated in the worst table at the kitchen door was not a good start . I noticed many empty tables that were never filled so putting us there made no sense . Pizzas were adaequate and Parmesan fries looked nicer than they tasted as they were very dry. It's a nice space and perhaps a table on the Liffey side would have been nicer . Disappointing as it's close to where I live and I'd hoped to be a regular .
Had a really lovely meal in Roberta's over the weekend. Really cool venue. We both just had a pizza each (The Chorizo & The Parma Ham) along with the parmesan fries and everything was really delicious. Only fault was the espresso martini wasn't very good. It was a bit watery. Aside from that everything was positive.
The venue decor is nice, the atmosphere is lively and the food is good/average for a city centre restaurant.
They are the only good things that I can say about it.
The service is mediocre, at best.
The wine list is average/poor and seriously over-priced.
My friend and I could hardly hear each other talk, thanks to a combination of the DJ starting up and two very drunk tables close to us.
The restaurant was also uncomfortably warm.
Overall, it was a poor experience and I will not return.
Really nice decor, similar to Angelina's (same owner). Very nice staff. Great vibe, gorgeous bar. When I went I was disappointed by the lack of vegetarian or pescatarian options but the next week they added a vegetarian menu so I will absolutely go back and try it ! Really nice for a date night or a night out with friends in a beautiful location. Very well situated right in temple bar neighbourhood.
The food was very good : the focaccia was amazing, the pizza was slightly too wet/soggy but the taste was spot on and the ingredients were extremely fresh and tasty so I blame the "sogginess" on the fact that the kitchens were overly busy and maybe the pizza needed a slightly hotter oven or just a bit more time in the oven.
The stratciatella was divine too. Highly recommend it as a starter.
Pasta dish my partner had (pork orrechiette) was apparently very tasty and perfectly al dente.
A bit disappointed by the ice-cream Sundae but overall a very nice evening!
I had a dinner in the place - the food served was very poor ,poor quality of some of the starters and small portions , main dish lamb was like a chewing gum - overall a bad experience and a pricey one (>100 euro without dessert or bottle of wine just 2 cups)
The place itself very noisy and not suitable for evening dinner but more for pizza and cocktails in a vibrant environment - bottom line i can not recommend the place for a dinner maybe for a pizza and cocktails it is better
Lovely room, very attentive and friendly service. Bar in centre of room with DJ doesn't lend I them self to an intimate dining experience. Some issues with food, very creamy lunguine dish not really outlined as such on menu, however, manager very graciously discounted bill. Delicious dumplings and lovely "Iberico Secreto" slices of rare pork with a fennel salad.
