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.

Good choice for an evening. We took several dishes to share, and everything was OK

Although I really enjoyed my steak the mash on the side was more like a child's portion. And not a lot of options on the menu. We found also that the tables where very close together and felt like I was disturbing the people beside us if we needed to go use the bathroom.

👍🏻 Amazing food tasting experience!
👍🏻 Very good atmosphere!

👎🏻 Drinks (beer and Bailey's) take more than 10 min to be served. And we ordered more than 7 times...

Great location. Lovely bar and restaurant. Good to be able to stay in the same location for food and then drinks. Cocktails good. We were a group of 6. Service slow at times. Service charge extremely steep at €34.50.

Loved the spot, fab waitress, fab atmosphere... shared platter for starters was really good... I had the prawn pasta dish for my mains and tasted delicious but I think I counted 5/6 prawns at most, bit mean on the prawns I must say... I’ll still go back... extremely noisy but suppose that’s a good thing!!

Food was good but whole experience was tainted by slow service. We weren't asked if everything was okay, food almost flung on table. We weren't offered desserts or coffee when our plates were taken and had to look for someone to ask. When we got the bill we were waiting 20 minutes while staff passed the table not taking the bill/ payment. Eventually we gave up and went to the counter to pay. The staff greeting and bringing you to your seat have a much better manner than servers who gave base-level service.

The food was brilliant and atmosphere was fab but service really REALLY let it down. We were waiting 1:20hrs before receiving any food due to mix ups and “miscommunications” rather that it being overly busy or anything. Had to repeatedly ask for things. Food really was so great but the service really coloured our experience. Not sure if I’d be back to be honest

Beautiful food in a lovely setting and overall a very positive experience. If we had any complaint it would be the service which at times was not to standard and we had to request drinks to our table twice on 2 separate occasions.

The service was very slow, the waitress kept forgetting about us and what drinks we ordered. The food came and half of it was cold and they forgot our sides. After mains we weren’t offered a desert menu. Gorgeous place, not the best service so didn’t enjoy food

Overall it was a good experience, but it really felt like the place was understaffed. Some drinks took a long time to come, and although they took it off the bill, situation is not ideal. I’d recommend hiring extra staff for busy nights.

The food was lovely but unfortunately our service was rather poor. Once dinner was finished we were asked to move on as the table was being used - we had to ask twice before they found us another seat at the bar to move to. We then waiting another 20 minutes to get drinks and no one arrived. After spending a couple of hundred euro it was a rather poor way to end the evening. We were also sat inbetween two group tables who were very noisey, with one of our guests being deaf it made the surrounding noise difficult for her.

Nice restaurant food excellent but could have been hotter this may have been down to waiters being slow to bring table. Seemed to be short on waiting staff we were a while waiting to place order had to ask 3 times for water they also got drinks order wrong was ten minutes trying to get bill.

Overall it was a very nice evening and I would go back we may have just caught them on bad night
