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.
Food always fab and this visit was no different- the only thing that let's the menu down is the overpriced wine
Really tasty dishes (you have to try lobster alla catalana ). Beautiful evening ,lovely service ,overall unreal
A pasta dish—spaghetti vongole, and gnocchi with shrimp were almost inedible. A third person who had fresh fish was quite pleased.
This is the only restaurant in Dublin I can have fresh fish and feel like I’m on holiday!
The food here is exquisite and the service and attention to detail is great.
Upbeat, friendly warming and engaging staff.
I can’t wait to return.
Great service and food especially raw fish. Authentic italian
Went here on a whim and had the most pleasant experience! Great food and service!
We love dining here, excellent food and service in a lovely atmospheric restaurant.
Rosa Madre is a wonderful, elegant oasis in the heart of Temple Bar - a perfect spot for a quiet treat, with excellent food, top quality wines, and lovely service.
Waitress took fish and removed bones herself not at my request. Gave us back just more than half of fish
Fantastic restaurant. Amazing selection of fresh fish, delicious pasta and great service. Best Italian I've had in Dublin and top 5 Italian restaurants I've ever been to.
superb all round food service and ambience will surley be back again
Food was excellent, we were running late to arrive and with the kitchen closing, was allowed to order via telephone. Nice experience
Food and service was nice, but portions were very small and overpriced. Left the place hungry after 3 courses.
Excellent food experience as always. Highly recommend a visit to Rosa Madre
Enjoyed our meal , ambience fabulous extremely comfortable.
Service fantastic and we really enjoyed our conversation in Irish with the waiter.
Will be recommending a meal at the Rosa Madre to all my friends when they visit Dublin.
Really nice fresh fish Italian restaurant in Temple Bar. Dishes beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Staff attentive and helpful. Not cheap but worth it!
We had a super night would highly recommend
Excellent food and service.
They live up to their claim to being a great Italian restaurant. We were made feel so welcome. The preparation of the fish at the table was fantastic.
Becoming one of our regular eateries in Dublin.
Cannot find any bad comments about this hidden gem.
Its fresh, its fish, and service is excellent.
Hope to be back there soon.
Fab food particular the turbot for 4
Only negative ..price of lowest point for wine was 35€ a bottle
Exceptional seafood! Probably the best I’ve had in Dublin. The seabass baked in sea salt looked amazing and tasted even better. The lobster pasta was incredible. Such an authentic enjoyable experience. Will definitely be back to try something else.
Suoer food waiters so nice and polite good vibes overall.
Best restaurant in Dublin ! The staff is Very kind and the food is amazing!!!! Fish is delicious
We ordered our food at 8.20pm and didn’t receive it until 9.15pm. They did give us 2 baskets of bread to keep us going but we would have ordered starters had we known the service would be so slow. We had ordered 2 pasta dishes & 1 risotto so nothing that should have taken so long.
Food and service excellent
What a wonderful restaurant. We were unsure of a particular wine to have with our meal and the girl serving us brought us each a sample taste - which we decided to have with our meal - what a lovely touch! We loved everything here - the ambiance, the food (wow), the wine, the service and the friendly welcoming staff. The wine is a little on the pricey side, but it's not going to stop us from returning again and again.
After 1 hour 20 mins we were told we needed to wrap it up in the middle of our main course. For €130 for two people this was disappointing. Manager was very defensive when it was raised.
Lovely, very pleasant, superb food😋😋
Gorgeous as always. A real treat for fish lovers. :)
Great food, sea bass was delicious and waiters were friendly. Maybe a little over priced on certain items but delicious nonetheless!
as awesome as always. lemon sole to die for
Although the restaurant was nice. We thought the menu was very overpriced. The wine was extortionate.
Booked for a rare night out in town and ended up coming away disappointed. The food was great but the service was bad. Firstly we arrived on time but had to stand in the doorway for 10 mins while they found us a table. We were in the for waiters getting fish from the display and for other customers coming and going. We then got a nice quiet seat upstairs. So quiet in fact that the waiters barely noticed us. Our meal took 3 hours from start to finish with most of that time spent waiting to be served. It got to the stage where we ran out of water and wine but couldn’t find someone to order from. I probably should have gone wandering to find a waiter but when you’re in a nice place paying good money you expect some service. We got the excuse that it was busy and there was a large party there at the same time but if you are going to accept the booking make sure you have the staff to look after everyone. It’s a pity because the food was really good but I won’t be back.
It was delicious
I was very disappointed with the service in Rosa Madre. I had booked a table weeks in advance yet when I arrived I was kept waiting by the door , next to the fish tank for twenty minutes. We had to move constantly while standing there , as other customers were entering and exiting and waiters had to access the fish tank. When we were eventually shown to our table no-one offered to take our coats. We had to ask about the specials of the day when the waiter came to take our order. The food was delicious when it eventually came and the waiter was helpful when we were selecting our wine. However, when we tried to order dessert some items were not available and we should have been appraised of this when we were given the menu. Overall, I felt the service was appalling and when we brought it to attention at the end of the evening were told 'It's Saturday night and we were busy'! I would not recommend the restaurant to anyone.
Very nice place. Great food and hospitality.
Excellent dinner experience. The food was very good - we especially would recommend the risotto (a special main course). The service was attentive. Ambiance was okay, nothing special - but we sat across from the kitchen, and could see how hard - but with apparent pleasure - the cooks were working. The prices were a bit high, but well worth it. We will certainly eat here again.
We love this restaurant, simply delicious
