    Overall very good, only downside was there seemed to be only 2 waiters between a very large area, so slow to take orders and catch get them to something additional. But food was amazing when it arrived,

    Quiet environment which makes it relaxing and nice to talk, we don’t need to shout all the time. A huge shout to the two waiter that were our serves, they were BRILLIANT. I don’t know their names, but one was by the door and the other one had glasses. Both of them were just perfect! Food was something apart, maybe one of the best I had in Dublin, my friend and I got the salmon and as a starter we got the board.

    Found staff to be at best incompetent apart from the lad at the bar with the coloured hair.He was friendly . Asked twice for table to be cleared and after 20 minutes waiting started to clear up myself. Asked for desert menu and waiter said it wasn’t his table. Apparently out waiter was on a break ? Pizza was average. Wouldn’t go back and couldn’t recommend.

    Beautiful venue and not busy at all when we visited. The food overall was great however I had the wild mushrooms on toast and found the dish a little dry. It comes with 1 small poached egg. Two would have been better. The other food orders were fab. We had the burger, French toast, pizza, chicken tenders, pancakes and a panne cota for dessert. Very tasty. The waiter who took our order was one of the most polite people I've met. Really lovely. As we finished our meals the restaurant really quietened down ( we were 1 of 2 tables remaining who were dining) but we were left waiting for a really long time for our plates to be collected/ order desserts and to request the bill which was disappointing. I would definitely be back though because it's a wonderful place and perhaps the staff were just busy.

    Our experience in this restaurant was great! The staff was super friendly, we didn’t have to wait long and the food and drinks were amazing. The only downside is that, after we finished our food and the plates were picked up, we were waiting for half an hour to order something else. We ended up asking for the cheque and leaving. This was understandable however - they had a group of around 30 people that just came in so we understand that they were busy. Overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

    Only two Chefs on for Mother’s day which meant huge delays with food coming out- Staff that were rostered on were under immense pressure from servers to chefs. Not their fault but put a negative experience on the meal as staff took a long time to come back and take our food order and then our food probably took a further 40 minutes to arrive. Cappuccino was cold on arrival. Lavender toast was beautiful, would recommend. Salt beef brisket sandwich was completely different to description on menu. All in all a very poor experience, staff were flying around trying to retain control but unfortunately the experience was tainted by delays and somewhat mediocre food for part of the order. We have dined here numerous times for dinner and have had really good experiences, think we got unlucky this day. Hope staff received a huge thank you for that day given the pressure they were under that was visible to all customers. Can’t see us rushing back

    Food and service were excellent! We didn’t feel rushed at all. My only complaint would be it’s not the warmest place, especially where the bathrooms are, they were freezing. I don’t know if it’s like that all the time or just our particular visit. Other than that everything was perfect and we really enjoyed our evening.

    Gorgeous food, lovely wait staff. I booked the table 3.5/4 weeks in advance and was disappointed with the table allocation as it was right by the entry door, other patrons and hostess passing closely everytime they entered. Pleanty of tables remained empty during our 2hr slot, however when requested to move, we were denied. 20 mins after the table next to us also requested to move by similar reasoning and were permitted to do so. If i was booking again, I would feel the need to specify a table.

    Booked a table for our first night stay here in Dublin and it set the benchmark high! My chicken dish was not only beautiful but delicious. The pizzas were fantastic too! The design of the restaurant is beautiful and it felt romantic to me with my partner. But would also be great for the girls. I wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend to people staying in Dublin.

    My friend and I had a lovely time at Roberta’s last night. Duck Ragu was really tasty and N’Duja pizza was unusual and delicious. Pear pudding to share finished off the meal perfectly.
