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.
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.
Very good food, professional staff, and nice surroundings, looking forward to returning
Beautiful food but slightly expensive
Great attentive service with small, intimate ambiance. Seafood was outstanding! Perfect evening.
One of the best if not the best restaurant in Dublin! Great atmosphere, delicious food and huge selection of outstanding wine. Highly recommended, place where you need to be.
My friend suggested me to bring my girlfriend for a lunch and we had a lovely experience, high standard, professional service and really good food served. I truly recommend.
I know this is supposed to be a fish restaurant, but i can't help coming back for the truffle carbonaras!
Really enjoyed our meal here. Staff were lovely, food was excellent, great selection of wines - we had a lovely bottle of Pecorino which can be hard to find in Restaurants here. It's great to have a quality option in Temple Bar.
Delighted to have discovered Rosa Madre. It was a busy night and service was a little slow but that was our only complaint, and they were apologetic and charming. Will be back next time we're in Dublin.
Unreal ! It was savage. Staff were brill and the food was excellent !
Fantastic staff, food, and amazing wine selection
We had a lovely night out in Rosa Madre. The staff were very exceptionallly friendly and very attentive. The food was wonderful. The wine was beautiful but at the upper end pricewise. While it is mainly a fish restaurant, I'm not a lover of seeing a table of raw fish at the entrance or of the waiter showing a live lobster he was going to cook, to a guest at another table. Then that's me. Others would like this.
Food was outstanding but service was slow and they barely pad attention to us. Had to ask for things multiple times and servers did not communicate with each other well.
Delicious food. Very friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable and relaxing ambience with just the right level of banter.
Rosa Madre was a great value and a nice change up in the Temple Bar area. It was small, quiet and the service was great. Not knowing Italian made it a bit difficult to order from the menu, but the food we chose ended up being fantastic.
I generally recommend this place as one of the top....ambient and service absolute impeccable....the only thing this time is that two of the five dishes ordered, squid risotto and monkfish were little too salty...I loved the rest, for example moscardini are really perfect and the crab tonnarello as well; my seabreem was perfection too and truly well served.... however since it is quite expensive I would expect little more attention on those details....impeccable the owner in welcoming us
Great Italian food and service
Pasta was perfecto!
Wonderful food, service and staff. Never disappoints! 10/10 as per usual.
Such a traditional classic yet elegant Italian restaurant specialising in fish
Highly recommend for a special occasion
Excellent variety of choices on menu, extensive wine list. They had Falanghina, which we love and can be difficult to find!
The waiting staff were attentive, friendly and efficient but not intrusive.
We had seafood fritto misto griglia and sea bream tartar- delicious! Mains were even more delicious: A mix of tuna and other seafood perfectly cooked and a huge plate of monkfish in a mild garlic sauce.
Desserts were equally impressive with a melt in the mouth chocolate cake and a bowl of assorted sorbets presented in the most delightful way!
I would go back any day! Absolutely top quality!
Fab restaurant , comfortable & perfect. Great food choices, wine selection fab, we would eat here every week!
Neat place with wonderful food (we had fish) & a great staff! Not sure anything else needs to be said.
Delighted that they have put back the meatballs on the menu.
The range of fish is excellent. Pasta dishes are really good and fresh.
Will most definitely be back.
Every food served in this restaurant was delicious.
Staff here were very gentle and nice. If I lived in Dublin this place would be somewhere I would want to go every month
Overpriced, food nothing special. Simple fresh fish could do better at home.
Excellent Italian seafood. Great wine and top class service. Lobster pasta is the choice.
I absolutely love Rosa Madre, I travel down from Belfast just to eat and drink there.
I have zero complaints.
Amazing fish, from tartare’s and carpaccio to crab linguine and a delicious turbot oven cooked with potatoes, a few cherry tomatoes and black olives. Delicious. As usual
It’s a lovely restaurant and def worth a visit. My expectations were high based on recommendation. The starters and dessert were superb and the main was fine but nothing special. Wine very good. The service improved during the evening but no one actually welcomed us or actually spoke to us for the first twenty minutes but the main host was lovely when he cane over. It was a lovely evening and there’s a good ambience in it
Rosa Madre is a warm and welcoming restaurant. The food is generally good but my husband's steak was a little overdone and my fish was quite dry. Starters were very good. The wine is definitely overpriced.
