Dinner

Visited this eatery last night without a reservation. It was very busy but we were given a table quickly. Staff were plentiful and very helpful. The food was freshly prepared and excellent. A bit pricey for 2 courses and a drink each. €70. In saying that we did enjoy it. Worth a visit.

I used to love this place, great food, great service.... What happened??? Had a miserable time.. servers that don't know or don't care what they are doing... However when I realised I was looking at the manager (clothes can be deceiving) it all made sense... Not going back. Sorry Roses our affair is over..

This place was hoping on Friday last when we took our teenage kids. We had a reservation (thankfully) but were shown to a quiet corner upstairs away from the hustle and bustle. In the end, it was a good decision as we could then chat, laugh and enjoy our own company without having the lose our voices shouting. Food was... More

We were quite a large group (10 pax) & turned up without booking, they made the effort to fit us in on a busy evening. Wide range of dietary types in our group but everybody found something that suited them. I had the fish dish of the day which was really, really good, the fish was especially well cooked. Great...

The food was okay not that special. The atmosphere was quite good but it is very dark! The staff are very friendly and attentive hence a higher rating has been given! The staff even dressed up for Halloween.

We planned a trip to Rose's for dinner our first night and it did not disappoint. The tacos I ordered were nice and presented well. My partner's burger was absolutely amazing. The tastiest burger I think I've ever tasted. Beef burger, bacon, jalapeño and cheese. I had serious food envy!! The reason I will definitely be going back to Rose's... More

We went to Rose's Cantina on a Thursday night and it was packed. They managed to find us a table in a cosy spot and we were given some great recommendations. Cocktails and food were all really tasty. Particularly enjoyed Ceviche de Verano which was Tuna with Mango, lime and chilli. The Quesadillas with spicy Salsa were also delicious. The... More
