“Best meal in Cape town”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Walking in a little pretentious looking. But our server Pinky was so funny and entertaining. She made the meal better. But the meal itself was so lick your fingers good. I had ordered the nicki's platter(1-2 ppl) and everything on the plate was so good. I wanted to suck up all the juices of the cray fish. And the saffron sauce balanced it out. The beef cubes were perfect for sharing for my kids who ate it all up. The Portuguese steak was good and my daughter said it was the best steak.and the chef had given us complimentary potato soup of some sort. Good! I have nothing bad to say thanks Pinky for a great meal. My kids and I loved it. Will definitely be back

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We stayed in a hotel in Long-street that just happened to forget to tell us that their on-site restaurant is closed on Sunday evenings,just as well otherwise we would not have known about Robertos just a few metres from the hotel.

At Robertos we were warmly greeted and we felt right at home. Special mention must go to Pinky that helped us a great deal with our one year old boy. The food was top notch and the service was spot on!! This is one place we will return to in Cape town!!

“Great restaurant with a passionate chef who cares”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident walking down Long St and are very glad we did. They accommodated us and we had an excellent meal with friendly attentive staff who cared about the service. The food was very good and the chef came out to speak to us during the meal. It was clear he has a real passion for food and genuinely cares that his diners have an enjoyable experience. Thoroughly recommed it.

“A good place and friendly”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Nice location in the heart of the city of Cape Town. Friendly staff, mixed from RDC and RSA. Nice to speak French in a portuguese restaurant. Food was oke, but no special touch, no portuguese touch.

“In our Cape Town top 3”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The service is outstanding.
The food is fantastic.
The red wine is too warm. But after 10 minutes in a cooler it was perfect.
