Brilliant Service!

The food was better than average and the fish was absolutely the freshest. What really impressed us though was the service. About 20 minutes after placing the order we hadn't got the food and we had a flight to catch. We explained this to our waitress who promptly sprung into action. She went to... read more

We went to this restaurant as a family. whilst we were waiting for our food to come , there was a power cut and all we heard from the open Kitchen was a waitress saying OHH S__T which was not at all professional and considering we had our children with us, very inappropriate. We ordered a Sea food Platter, chips... More

We walked in and were shown to our tables. The waitress was more interested in looking and staring at 2 young guys who had walked in. If she wanted to do that, maybe she should have been at Bobs Bar. Anyway, we ordered our food. We had to call our waitress over to order drinks. Not a single smile on... More

We recently visited Roberto's after an afternoon movie. It was the perfect place to pop into for dinner while waiting for the worst of the Nyali traffic to calm down after the end of the movie (and rush for the start of the next screening!). We were welcomed and seated and the kids had menus before they knew what hit... More

We had a tasty, crisp wood grilled pizza for lunch on the deck overlooking the water. Very nice place for lunch.

Roberto's is everything I look for in a neighborhood restaurant. Solid, predictable food week in and week out, reasonable prices, and attentive and friendly service. The food doesn't blow me away but I always leave very satisfied. Of the eight pizza places we've tried in Mombasa, Roberto's easily ranks #1; their pastas, while having a tendency to be a bit...

We went to Robertos Bamburi for dinner with friends in high anticipation but were surprisingly let down this time! The lobster was not upto mark from the word go. The pizza was okay not mind blowing. Lasagne yes, it was amazing. But the rest of our food somewhat turned mediocre. We also told them of our dissatisfaction and were promised... More

Tried various pizzas over the years, found them to be average. I would have expected more being Italian, but the three cheese pizza was my favourite. They also provide you with a mean chilli sauce if requested for.

We go here regularly. Always good service and excellent food...despite being in an odd location (near the cinema) it has a nice ambiance. Much better than the one in Bamburi.

The food was not all that, particularly the pastas and it was quite costly. The ambiance was nice and it was not very crowded, which was nice. We did enjoy some nice Italian ice-cream at the end of our meal, which was a huge positive.
