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.

Have been here a few times.
Starter - mushroom risotto really nice
Main- land pasta, absolutely delicious
Service was excellent.
Table a bit tight not a lot of space to be honest
Only negative is I feel it’s a bit over priced for food and drink .

We had a lovely night. The food was amazing although expensive. The starters are over priced but the main courses were excellent. The chicken and fish dishes were fabulous as was the pizza. As the portions were big next time I wouldn’t bother with starters and just have a main followed by the fab expresso martini. Will defo be back

Never take eggs for brunch. I took the 3baked eggs and it was the best egg brunch I ever had. The best egg dish I ever had. The location is very cool and the service is on point. Top class restaurant 👌🏼

We were seated at a table that we quickly discovered was unstable and very wobbly and we immediately brought it to the attention of the (very friendly) staff. They tried unsuccessfully to fix it so we moved to the table beside it. Over the course of our meal, two other couples were seated at the table, the first couple asked to be moved too, and the second had difficulty with the table, and another staff member tried fixing it with a cork wedge (interrupting our meal because he was practically underneath our feet). The restaurant was not fully booked and there were plenty of empty tables throughout the evening. Paired with a very rowdy stag group right beside us, and mediocre food (risotto was too salty, veg lukewarm with steaks). Very slow drinks service, we ordered fresh drinks before our main course and were both nearly finished eating when they arrived (after bringing it to the attention of staff). Disappointed as it was an expensive night out to celebrate a birthday.

Second visit to Roberta's. My 1st experience was 6 weeks ago, and I was with a gang. I thought the venue was quirky and bright, with a good atmosphere. I ordered a pizza, but had to ask for it to go back to the Chef as the base was soggy. The second one came back much better. Perhaps the Chef was having a bad night.

Giving it a second go. Took two out of town friends there for the atmosphere. Said nothing about the food. We ordered 3 different pizza. All terrible. Soggy bases. No one ate them. Shame.

Robert's is a beautiful place, and worth your while if going to have just a drink, although prices are even more expensive than the already expensive dublin. The waiters were nice, but the food was so bad I will never eat there again. I took my friend for a meal for her 40th, we shared one starter which was just bland, but the lamb pasta e both got as a main was really bad. The cost of the meal was expensive, I don't mind paying but to pay for something that's really bad is not on. My advise to the chef would be " keep it simple and go back to basics" that's where i would start from.

Very cool place. Great atmosphere....I hate when you're in a restaurant and it's so quiet you're afraid to talk. Service was brilliant and food was lovely. Had the asparagus tortellini with truffle cream for starter and it was exceptional. Would definitely visit again. Great start to a night out

Great ambiance, food was good, choice was good but service could have been a little better. For a saturday night, it was the usual busy, however there were some empty tables. Table was booked for 7.30pm, party of 3 and only one of us had a starter. We didnt get the main until 9.30pm. I still enjoyed it and would go back.

The service was excellent, our table was ready when we arrived. Staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. The portions are very large, and after we both had our starters (crispy fried prawns and risotto) we struggled to finish our main course, definitely no room for dessert. Our only criticism is that the noise level was too high to talk comfortably.

The food was just okay but not that special and too high-priced. The location however is super hip and trendy and the ambiente is worth a visit! I would rather come back for a drink than an overprized dinner. Still a good place!

Food fantastic. Layout and décor fantastic. Only negative is probably the noise. This isn't some place to come for a quiet meal, if you have had a hard stressful day at work and just need some ambient relaxing background noise. We got lucky and had out meal at river facing side, which is quieter. Not sure they can do much about it with any softeners to buffer the sound. Despite all this I must have recommended the restaurant to at least 10 people in last 3 days.
