Had a great dinner with my fiancee. We were celebrating our anniversary in a such special place with great food and wine.
Rosa Madre is definitely one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Dublin. Excellent pasta and seafood dishes- id highly recommend the scallops starter with the breadcrumbs and the pasta is all homemade. I will return on another special occasion as it’s a bit pricey. Service is really good
I found this restaurant on open table and it exceed my expectations. 5 friends met for dinner and we all had great meals . Also the service was excellent and we weren’t rushed at any time which is great when you are catching up with friends
We had table for 4. All of us had different starters and mains. We were all very happy with our choice. The food, wine, service and staff were all amazing . Definitely recommend. Aideen
Another excellent evening of exceptional wines, superb food & great buzz
The veal saltimbocca stole the show!
Great food, fantastic service, food was really good, and we really enjoyed our evening, restaurant was busy but it did not impact service in any way and the watiress was lovely and attentive
Amazing food in a great location with really good service.
Beautiful food- huge menu choice. Very good value seafood.
Excellent food and wine selection, will be back, impeccable service
Outstanding. We frequently dine in Michelin star restaurants and the top restaurants all over the world. Rosa Madre is one of the best meals we have had in Dublin. Would not hesitate to recommend and already planning a return visit
Food was amazing, restaurant had a high number of Italians eating there which is a good sign! Fish was fantastic!
Rose Madre is a very good restaurant located in Temple Bar. My fresh smoked salmon starter was delicious.
The scalooped potato slices were very good and well flavored. The spinach side needed more flavor. A bit of cheese or butter was needed. The lamb entree was good but a bit fatty. One chop was all fat and no meat. It really should have been properly trimmed. The service was very attentive and the atmosphere was charming and intimate. A little more care with the cooking would earn this restaurant a higher rating.
The best seafood restaurant in Dublin -- a superb menu and wine list.
Lovely food, atmosphere. Great service. Could have had a little more seafood in the seafood risotto. Friends steak looked fabulous.
Lunch with pals on a Thursday at 2pm. Fantastic food. Lovely service. Waiter really knowledgeable on all things seafood and took the time to show us some sea urchins and how they are prepared on our way out. Would highly recommend this spot.
I had been to Rosa Madre with a friend before, and when the opportunity arose to host another group of friends, I jumped at the chance to book a table at Rosa's. As I expected, everything was outstanding! The three of us who had fish (and it IS a restaurant specialising in fish) were all delighted, and my friend who ordered lamb chops said they were the best he had ever had. In sum, this is a wonderful restaurant!
With my son
Great experience, amazing food and wine.
Amazing food, great staff and fun place to eat. We were made feel very welcome by Lucca and his staff!
Excellent food, fresh and tasty.
Good place and staff.
Authentic Italian seafood restaurant, outstanding quality and variety of ingredients and wines, excellent and friendly service. Thanks for the amazing dinner.
Lobster pasta was exceptional. Will definitely be coming back to try all the other dishes on the menu
Great restaurant, nice and tasty food; portions are OK; I really like the decoration of the place; service was fantastic; first time and defenetely coming back. Price, is not a cheap restaurant but for Dublin standards ok.
I had a dinner alone. They are famous about their Italian cuisine using fresh see foods. When I ask their recommendation, they kindly talked about their good foods, and their wine list was excellent.
A fantastic Italian fish restaurant with great pasta & local fish- choice of mains: sole, turbot, John Dory & hake as well as shellfish including lobster , great variety of othe smaller fish . I had boccotinas (?), linguini crab & John Dory- all fantastic. If you are visiting Dublin & love fish and/or Jtalian food- go! Great service with knowledgeable confident waitress & attentive owner
Food was excellent and service the same. Outstanding wine selection.
My wife and I went here last minute and we are glad we did. Food was amazing, the daily fish was cooked perfect, deboned table side. Everything we ate was amazing, we will be back.
It was a really great experience.
Excellent food and excellent service!
Lovely evening. Great seafood and excellent wine list
Excellent wine list; portions were moderate but fantastic
Food was lovely and service was excellent. Had an amazing starter with raw fish, just like home (Calabria, Italy) and tasty pasta al dente. Highly recommended and we will definitely go back. It’s a bit pricey but worth to go for a special occasion.
excellent food & atmosphere, great menu, really enjoyed it
That was my secound time in Rosa Madre. Had dinner with my friend. Menu is perfect, something for everyone, meal size is enough big to find place for dessert. Very friendly and profesiola service. Will be definitely back again!
I ve been waiting for a long time to dine here, so my expectations were probably high.
The whole dinner was disappointing.
The "tonnarelli con astice" were not tasty and they always come with a small piece of astice on the side, but not in Rosa Madre.
We paid 4.5 for a bottle of mineral water but the waiter served just 2 glasses and let us thirsty for the rest of the night.
We finally asked for an "amaro" that never arrived.
A recommendation for the owner:
Big prices dont make a big restaurant
I highly recommend the grilled lobster, absolutely delicious. The ravioli with ricotta and truffle is a great dish too. My favorite Italian restaurant in Dublin.
My favourite Italian restaurant. Super fresh food, great service warm ambiance. Staff are efficient knowledgable yet unobtrusive. Great selection of seafood. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Very good food and fantastic atmosphere. Pasta with lobster was outstanding. However, they took quite a long time to serve us as they had a table with 30 people and seemed a bit overwhelmed. While I understand the situation, would have appreciated a bit more of consideration and further gestures coming from the waiters. Overall we waited for 1:30 hour for our food between starters and mains. Having been there other 2 times I know it's not normal, but still something they should watch out for.
Great Italian food in the heart of temple bar ...excellent for fish...very pricey expect to pay premium prices. Excellent extensive menu & wine list and fab service from Italian staff who are passionate about their restaurant.
