“Small portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

All I can say is I had a caldo verde soup but it was minuscule. Three tablespoons. Disappointing. Cannot remember the mains.

“Lovely food, decor needs some work”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

If you're after some excellent food, GO HERE! We ate some of the nicest food we've had in Cape Town in this place. We had the burger, and the espetado. Venue is nothing much to look at from the outside, but the chefs are working up a treat. Also they are excellent for value with some great lunchtime specials that don't mean tiny portions. Roberto's delivers great food and they're not looking to stitch anyone up, good honest people. We'll definitely go again.

“Great spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

My daughter and I found Roberto's by accident and we both agree with all the other super positive reviews. The atmosphere is lovely, the service excellent, the food some of the best we have eaten in Cape Town and the desserts to die for. Highly recommend it.

“Quanit little restaurant in town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

We had purchased a Groupon voucher which was for rump steak special. Our waiter, a elderly man was very clued up and polite. Our food was good and will come back again
