This small but very good restaurant is next to Café des Artists. The terrace and dinning area have a magnificent view perfect of an evening dinning experience. Almost every table has a great view with a few tables directly on the railing overlooking a small garden with waterfall. The menu is simple but offers a good variety of starters and... More

We have been to Mama Rosa several times, it's worth the walk up into the hills to get there because the food is delicious and the drinks are strong--They have a great prix fixe special that is a 3 course dinner--The chicken is delicious--

We visited Mama Rosa twice during our last 12-day stay. All 4 of us ordered something different both nights, and we were all delighted with our food -- delicious and the presentation was beautiful. Love the atmosphere here, and the prices are very reasonable. Will definitely visit again next year!

This was our second visit to this lovely restaurant tucked into the hill above City Centro. Please note the location requires a walk up several steps or a steep cobblestone road, but well worth it. If you have mobility issues check out the walk before reserving. Tip: Ask for a seat near the open balcony wall overlooking the City and... More

Our first visit was fabulous! This wonderful little place is literally a few steps up from Café des Artistes. As you finish the couple dozen step rise to Mama's front door your anticipation rises as well. You begin to see the terrace dining area and it's beautiful setting. Once inside you can tell immediately that you are in for a... More

We were just wandering around enjoying the people, sounds and sights. We decided to have something to eat and wanted something a little out of the way. What a treat to sit outside overlooking the city. The service was good and the staff friendly.

A very nice dining experience. The food was delicious; the presentation was beautiful. Sylvia was our waitperson & she was wonderful. Yes, the prices are higher than typical but we recommend you treat yourself to Mama Rosa restaurant.
