With two small boys we don't get out as much as we would like and it felt like ages since we had been to Roberto's. Fabulous as always and nice to see lots of friendly local faces also dining. Thank you.

Visited ad hoc and had a lovely meal in this restaurant. I would recommend you visiting, the atmosphere was just right and it was very busy on our arrival so I would say booking could be a good idea

Me and my husband went to Robertos and my husband loves great food! He left with a huge smile on his face! Which says a lot! We both got 3 courses and it was delicious! The food was great quality! The wine was great too! Especially the red Merlot. My husband had the Guinea Fowl for his main course and... More

We have been to Roberto's a couple of times and we have not been disappointed. It is a small bistro situated in the middle of Bowness. The owner is I gather, from Tenerife. It is advisable to book, to ensure you get a table. We started with some tapas, which were really tasty. Most of our party plumped for the... More

What a little gem! In all honestly Roberto's is nothing much to look at from the front but what an amazing place. My partner and I both had 3 courses each and couldn't not fault a single thing, you could tell the food was homemade and was perfect. The service was brilliant, we sat down at 8.30 and we were...

We had dinner here with a small child and a baby. Food was nice. I had the mussels in spicy tomato sauce which were delicious and the fried calamari which were nice and tender but slightly greasy. My partner had a pizza which was ok but not special. My daughter enjoyed her spaghetti bolognese. The atmosphere is sophisticated but we... More

Really nice food with a warm and cosy atmosphere. The staff are really friendly and there was some unusual dishes on the menu. All the food had a very homemade and fresh feel. We'll be back.

We were really looking forward to our night at this restaurant during our break to the lakes. However, we were not welcome in the restaurant because we had a baby with us and we were turned away by one of the male waiters! It was still early in the evening (as we avoid eating late on as we have a... More
