We specialize in fresh fish, delivered daily by local suppliers and we guarantee to always have the finest quality available. Our seafood cuisine is characterized by the simple quality of the catch. We place our orders during the night, directly from the port where the fish is delivered to ensure we always get the freshest product available.
Really lovely restaurant with great sea food.
Really good seafood. One of the best meals I've had in Dublin for some time.
The food, service and overall experience were excellent. The only negative was being seated upstairs next to a temporary dehumidifier set up with giant tubes sticking out the window creating noise from the machine and bringing in the noise of temple bar through the open window. We moved 1 table away but the machine was still a distraction and took away from the experience. can only hope it is not in place the next time we visit.
Will absolutely return and recommend for special occasions. Would highly recommend the
Tonnarelli all’ Astice pasta and the tiramisu for dessert! Both were delicious and the tiramisu was enough to share.
A wonderful spot for a beautiful Italian seafood dinner. You're greeted with fresh fish and live lobster when you enter, and the engaging and cozy atmosphere sucks you in. Fresh oysters were some of the sweetest I've tasted. Scallops in the shell served beautifully. Spaghettini and clams, tagliatelle funghi were both spectacular. The wine list was extensive, very Italian oriented, with a nod towards Spain and California. Our last dinner in Dublin, and we will certainly be back!
Very nice meal, the wine list was a bit expensive and time between starters and main course etc. could have been a bit faster. Otherwise not a bad spot in the city centre.
Wonderful Italian food and hospitality. The freshest of fish and simple pasta dishes made very special indeed.
Rosa Madre is one of Dublin's top Italian restaurants having a large emphasis on fish and seafood. We had sea bass cooked in salt crust and dover sole meuniere, both of which were excellent and served with very well cooked vegetables. We started with burrata and pata negra and mellanzane parmigiana both of which were also excellent. There is a very comprehensive wine list and a great selection of wines by the glass. The dining space is very relaxing and quiet ..... so great for having good conversation. The staff in Rosa Madre are very professional and attentive. It is not a cheap place in which to dine but the prices are in line with the food quality, the standard of cooking, the lovely venue and the excellent staff.
This restaurant is just okay. They have these creepy huge red teddy bears at the tables. The menus are sticky and the restaurant seems dated. The pasta dishes were just average, nothing special.
Why internet prices different of evening prices? But food and service good
Lovely antipasti, scallops, mussels. Would definitely recommend.
Just delicious. A Wonderfully fresh local seafood prepared with a minimum of fuss, great wine, I recommend the large tasting platter and try all the raw prawns especially the ruby-red ones and Dublin Bay. Friendly waiter and cute decor with teddy bears everywhere. (Note: We accidentally went to Terra Madre instead so be sure to get the right directions! ...and do not go to Terra Madre they were incredibly rude and mean!)
Waitress was quite rude & cranky and the staff loitered around our table talking loudly in Italian to eachother. Had a headache leaving. Food was not great for the price, pasta was too undercooked and overall poor experience and won’t be returning/ recommending.
Fantastic food, wine and service. We will definitely be back!
Firstly, Thank you to the staff who were super accommodating to our table of 8 with late comers and ordering starters to share only the start of our atypical requests. The food was exceptional and a truly authentic feel to the whole experience. This restaurant is a gem for any occasion. My affogato was a little disappointing. Should be one scoop of ice cream and a shot of espresso.... right!? but maybe thats a personal thing. It certainly wont prevent my anxiously anticipated return.
Authentic Italian food, ambiance and service!
Excellent as usual. Will be back again
Love the meat balls and the range of fish is amazing.
Great night last saturday in Rosa madre food and service was excellent fish was cooked to perfection and waiter staff were very attentive will be back again soon
Nice food, friendly staff. Expensive wine menu
Awesome meal- I have come to expect great food every time at Madre Rosa & to date have never been disappointed.
Very pleasant staff. Knowledgable and courteous.
Food was good, as always.
I love Rosa Madre and return time and time again. The fish is so fresh, the food delicious and the service is so friendly and accommodating. There is a huge selection of wine and fantastic wine pairing suggestions. I definitely recommend it.
Too expensive for what you get, no early bird menu.
The food is not as good as expected.
Tuna carpaccio was not seasoned, but good quality, the carbonara was too salty and the pasta genuinely under cooked. Disappointing food experience but very nice and friendly service.
The waiters are amazing. Very warm and accommodating! Great seafood. Best Oysters I’ve had so far in Ireland! Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great meal in Dublin.
We ended up going here twice on our trip to Ireland because we loved it so much. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgable about the menu. The owner himself came over and told us the specials and gave us dessert recommendations. The food is amazing and fresh. The setting intimate but fun.
Food was wonderful. On a warm evening the dining room was too stuffy though.
Amazing fresh italian food. Seafood is fresh and very tasty. As a foodie i am happy to return again
The food and the wine were very good. It is authentic Italian cuisine. We were there for a birthday celebration and the staff was very attentive and accommodating. The only minor issue was a bit of a language challenge.
fabulous in every way ! Food , service and setting were all perfect !
Great food, attentive and kind staff, nice atmosphere, good prices.
Just great! Lovely time!
Great food and drink, very good service and although quite pricey it's still worth it. Birthday tiramisu on the house with a happy bday song was a nice addition.
Food was delicious. Lots of fish choices.
We were there for a birthday party and were somewhat surprised that there would be a charge per person to bring along our own cake for the birthday person. A service charge to cut the cake and use their plates. Maybe that's normal but we hadn't come across it before.
Food was to die for, staff were very welcoming and nice! Would definitely recommend it to a friend and will definitely be back again.
Really impressed with the quality of the food here. Everything is really fresh and cooked to perfection.
There is great choice of dishes.
We had daily specials to start - Crab Salad(very tasty and fresh) and Sockeye Salmon (melt in the mouth).
Shared a second course of Red Prawn Gnocchi that was delicious.
We shared the daily catch of Whole Turbot, oven baked with potatoes and cherry tomatoes. Genuinely the freshest and nicest fish I have ever had.
The service was top notch - all staff were very friendly and very helpful when choosing from the menu.
I would highly recommend and I am looking forward to going back again.
Food is excellent but not cheap
As an Italian, i can’t fault the food at all and you can taste real Italy in your mouth, compliments to Chef!
The service was not as friendly as i would expect from my fellow countrymen, border line snobbish.
When asked an opinion between 2 wines, i was offered a 3rd choice (not requested) at a much higher price... never like that!
When my friend asked advise between 2 choices of pasta dish, she was not offered description which could help but rather information on the size and type of pasta. To an Italian, it would be valuable but to an Irish, not really. She was looking for a little more but our waitor was rather cool.
Overall a great experience, i had heard so much bout the food, however there are many excellent italian restaurants offering a more friendly service and fun atmosphere
Outstanding. Best restaurant in Dublin, highly recommend. Service, food, atmosphere all excellent.
Really enjoyed our meal. This restaurant does fish well. Highly recommend the oven baked fish of the day. We were keen to get advice on an Italian white (we are more knowledgable on French wines) and didn't feel the waiter very knowledgable. That said he was a lovely guy. Wine was very drinkable. Also they did not have any Italian sparkling wines!!
We met there as a close friends gathering before going on holiday, never been there.
3 ladies and 4 guys, we all agree that it was awesome!
From the decor, the service to the food quality, maybe a little pricey but worth it.
Come on give it a try and thank me afterward :-)
We really liked Rosa Madre. Food was lovely. The true test is that I would go back and recommend to a friend.
