“Divine!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Food here was beyond expectation. I had the seafood pasta and a bresaola pizza. We sat outside which was nice, the inside is also a bar so it can get loud and smokey after 10 pm

“Nice set lunch”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

I had lunch here with a business acquaintance as he recommended the place. I had the set lunch as it was convenient and quick, and didn't really feel like taking too much time pondering over the menu. I had some fish and it was nicely prepared, and dessert was quite good. Strangely the place was quite empty during lunchtime, but I was told that it gets crowded at night.

“Great cocktails - amazing view of the Burj”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

I really enjoyed my evening at Roberto’s in the DIFC district. I took my mum who was visiting on holiday and I would say this was a nice venue for people living in Dubai and for those on holiday. Julie, the staff who attended to us for most of the evening was attentive and pleasant. Julie spent time giving us food recommendations from the menu and when we asked for a table in the terrace area it was Julie that made the request to the manager. We were moved out to the terrace which provided a spectacular view of the Burj Kalifa The atmosphere in Roberto’s was very upbeat it was busy and people were chatting although the music was loud in the indoor area. Out on the terrace things are a little more chilled and the view of Burj made it all worthwhile. The bar food is awesome and I would recommend the fish skewers which had an interesting BBQ flavour without being black and charcoaled. There is a good selection of wines and cocktail to impress anyone. Enjoy.

“Very good but not very impressed”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

We went there with recommendation , beautiful design and ambiance, Appetizers were nice and tasteful. This is the right place for real simple food. Nothing to very talk about actually,
The only thing I did not like was selection of deserts. All of them were made almost on a same way. I would definitely recommend this place, and I will visit the restaurant every time I visit Dubai, especially for Lunch time..

“Its not all the hype given”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

I went there with the wife, and as far as we both can see, it did not deserve all the hype give to us by our friends. To us, it was a normal restaurant (on the noisy end). more trashy than classy. Nothing fancy about it or its atmosphere. Seen and have been to much better and more expensive places . The food was relatively ok, but the portions were a joke. Price-wise its on the higher end (which I expected since others told me), but value-for-money, absolutely not worth it
