    A really nice night ... good food. Good service. Dublin prices but that's the way it is. Wine list is bananas .....Pages and pages of high end wines which no one other that the ultra rich would contemplate buying .. had a nice "house " Pino at €48 ... nice atmosphere and a bit of theatre around the service of some of the dishes a created at table ... all over a nice experience... thank you all

    Beautiful food in a lovely environment. Feels like a family-run, authentic restaurant. Flavours are lovely, portions are decent and the service is impeccable. The only downside is it's very expensive for what you get, but for a once off, it was a fab experience.

    Very disappointed with our meal tonight. The service was nice and friendly. Our starter was good both of us had scallops. The main course was really bad we both had supposedly pan fried sole which came out very quickly and it was completely raw in the middle. But for the price of €45 for the dish you would expect fresh fish and this one wasn’t it was blueberry and disgusting 🤮. Really not the fish restaurant they advertised. So disappointing. Wine list really long and ridiculous expensive some bottles of wine €3000 +. Our waitress recommended something more in our price range and she recommended a nice bottle of white to go with our fish 😂. Dessert was nice but overall experience disappointing definitely not going back there

    Starter was cold. Apparently reheated after refrigeration and unfortunately not properly heated because inside was still cold. The interior is dark and stuffy with old thick brown carpets.

    Overall experience was good. Starter and dessert best dishes l, the main was not at the standard. On the menu was 'pappardelle mushrooms' but they served instead tagliatelle. The sauce was lacking olive oil to make it smoother.

    The service was great, the waiter was very polite and helpful. The starter I ordered was seabream tartare and it was delicious. For the main course we ordered risotto and clam linguini. The risotto was very good but the linguini was very oily and I couldn’t taste the pasta very well. I would definitely go back to Rosa Madre for the great service and to try the other dishes.
