We have dined at Robertos a number of times over the last 15 years, as a couple, a family and with groups of friends or family. Every time the food has been excellent.

After a gap of about about three years since our last visit, my wife treated my son and I to an early evening meal as a birthday present last week. Our dinners were the best we have ever had at Robertos and were certainly 'up there' with some of the best we have had anywhere (UK, France and Italy).

We thoroughly enjoyed Fillet steak, Calves liver (amazing- I tried a bit and might be converted from the steak) and calamari.

The restaurant is air conditioned, comfortable and relaxed, and Lucia always provides a warm welcome.

I would best describe the prices as 'mid-ranged' but they represent good value for money as the food is so good.

We ate at Robertos for my Husbands birthday and had a lovely evening. We were met at the door by Lucy who made us feel at home straight away even though this was our first visit.
The service and and also the food were really good. My husband had prawns and avocado to start and I chose the pâté. We both opted for the fillet steak cooked in a cream and brandy sauce for main course which was delicious. We then somehow found room for a sweet as well. The atmosphere here is really intimate and cosy with soft lighting and we will definitely be returning.

We went to Roberto's for my parents Wedding Anniversary on a recommendation. Being a Gluten Intolerant Vegetarian I was a little worried after looking at their menu online that there wouldn't be much to eat. However, we informed the restaurant of my dietary requirements before, and I can only say how wonderfully accommodating the restaurant was, modifying pieces of the menu to suit my needs/choices. I managed to have a three course meal (something that can be hard to find!) with absolutely no fuss, and felt at ease that there would be no 'surprise gluten' in my meal.

Everyone else in the party of 5 were very happy with their food as well. Although some things on the menu weren't available, it just proves that their food is fresh, and of high quality, with the restaurant happy to modify meals as requested - the sign of a good kitchen!

The service was friendly and extremely helpful, but not overbearing. Nice and relaxed.

Overall, a very nice way to celebrate as a family, with lovely food. You really get what you pay for. And I'm very grateful to the staff for not batting an eyelid at my dietary requirements!

My wife and I have eaten at Robertos twice in the last month and enjoyed two excellent meals. The service is friendly and efficient and the food freshly prepared by a chef who can certainly cook. This is not pre-packaged food that is so prevalent in many restaurants today.
The sea bass with tarragon was extremely good and the scampi provencale superb.

Had a birthday celebration dinner here, and was not overly impressed, wish we had gone elsewhere. Not my type of restaurant, wouldn't rush back. Service ok but a bit gushing.
