Food is too expensive for what it is.
Otherwise, it’s a nice place.

Good service. Portions were right and good price quality, definitely somewhere we would come back. If I have to say something negative maybe desserts too pricy for their overall amount.

We had a lovely meal last night, great service & food!! The only thing letting Roobertas down is the cleanliness of the Ladies toilets. This has to be improved, especially now. They were dirty, unkept, no loo rolls and most cubicle had little or no lighting.

Lovely food, gorgeous decor, service was OK but was waiting for food for nearly 40 minutes and it was just pancakes and French toast. Food was very nice though.

Food was delicious and the place is gorgeous! The bad point is the food took almost an hour to arrive and it was hard to find a waiter to serve us. Not many options for brunch. Good noise level, we could talk without noticing people around.

Expected more from the food and the bar staff seemed distracted by each other more than the customers. I could have just been unlucky.

Unfortunately the food is too expensive for what it is
I had the pork medallions for starter and it was dry. Loved the sauce though.
My main was the gnocchi and it was good
Dessert was the best - I had the plum polenta

But I was disappointed how the tables were set…. Too close to other people. So close that I could barely seat in or leave without touching others. Had to hear everyone’s conversation! Our reservation was for 9:30pm
As soon as they put us on that table I asked if I could be moved to another one that was empty. A booth that is for 3 or 4 people.
I specifically asked if they had other guests coming and they said they couldn’t give us that table
Half an hour later…. No one had arrived so asked again. To be told no… ok… i didn’t ask again but the table was free until food service was closed, we left around 23:00 and no one there. So yeah, no one was coming and they prefer to pack people close together rather than have the emotional intelligence to accommodate something so simple.

But my low review is for the fact I had to wait ages for a coke and the sauce I requested twice…. Never arrived.
I didn’t like the experience.

I don’t really put reviews as I prefer to give the benefit of doubt. But it’s not the first time I go to Robertas and there is always small issues like that.
Won’t go back as the food is not that good for the price you paying.
I expected at least the service to be good.

Waiter was quite rude and didn’t know what gluten-free means (he’s not aware what’s written in the menu about the gluten free pizza option). He had to go to the kitchen to find out what gluten free flour means. Then came back and had to acknowledge he’s wrong, in a very annoying way
