About Roberta's

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.

Excellent meal. Quick service. I really like the menu here but I was disappointed that my two first choices were both unavailable. We were in a late sitting (9:30) but if you're going to take late sittings you need to have enough prep done. Especially as the excellent menu is not vast. I also think Roberta's has the best smoking area in Dublin.

Excellent spot with a great energy and, the customer service was very good. The food I ordered was good, but the menu lacked any decent vegetarian options - perhaps this is a teething problem and will most likely be resolved down the line as the place is not long open.

I booked for a group for my birthday. Service was excellent , layout of seats and decor was cosy, Comfortable and sociable. The only downside was my maIn couare. It was essentially roast chicken with bland watery gravy, and not like what was described on menu. It was edible but disappointing.

Trendy stylish bar with delicious cocktails. Service was pretty good. My food selections were overall very disappointing. Would probably order pizza or salad next time as my cod (main) was tasteless and my iberico ham ( starter) lacked flavour. I wouldn’t recommend for dinner or any special occasion.

I've been here before on business in the evening and had no issues but this time on a Sunday lunchtime it was different. Firstly, my wife found out that she'd sat on chewing gum on a bar chair and this was met with something akin to 'oh well it happens, send us the dry cleaning bill'. The drinks order at the bar was wrongly delivered and after we sat down, I found the waiters quite aloof, impatient and intolerant when taking orders. The food took longer than usual which was surprising as it wasn't that busy and was only the brunch menu. The food and surroundings were as good as ever though.

The food was great but the experience not so good. I get that restaurants want to turn around tables fast but 2 hour slots for meals do not make for a relaxing experience. We wanted to have a drink after we had finished dinner as we normally would in a restaurant. Not a whole session just a drink. But we were moved off the table and could not get seats in the bar. We asked staff if we could sit back down as our table was still empty but they said no. We then asked could we have to space at the bar vacated by the next occupiers of our table, the staff said we could but then disappeared not to be seen again. It seems you actually have to reserve space at the bar.... We stood to finish our drinks and then left. So while we enjoyed dinner the after dinner experience spoiled that for us.

Loved Roberta's. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I was with friends for dinner and we arrived early. We ordered drinks at the bar and went to our table when it was available. The food was excellent. There were 3 vegetarians and we each got what we wanted! The only thing I would say (it's not a complaint) the menu could use another veggie starter option but the one available was delicious. Can't wait to go back!

Maybe the dinner menu is better but we felt the brunch menu was very limited. My 2 friends ordered the avocado toast with a side of smoked salmon but the salmon was served on top and 'cooked' the salmon which they found unappetising. The bread underneath was also soggy. I had no complaints with my sausage muffins. We were disappointed that the waitress didn't ask was everything ok when she cleared away 2 nearly full plates of food. Loved the atmosphere but wouldn't come back for brunch.

Lovely place, the décor was so nice and I loved our table sitting looking out over the river. Great selection of wine and the food was good although the red peppers in my dish (that days special the sea bass) tasted like the ones out of a jar!! Could be wrong though...

But really nice and I look forward to returning.

I've been to Robertas 3 times now and sadly it will probably be my last! It's a great venue, staff are good and atmosphere is great too...... the food lets it down. I was sorely disappointed by brunch but gave the dinner menu a go.... it was fine! If I go back again it'll be for drinks only.

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'!

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 !
