visited red rose cafe on wed. 22nd aug. lunchtime. very friendly staff,, good service but a little pricey or a basic meal, wraps, chips, and the usual over priced pot of tea here in ireland.
very clean basic decor, would recommend you to call, but a bit pricey for basic lunchtime food.

“Best Café in Mayo”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This café is set in the lovely quaint village of Louisburgh. If you are looking for a warm, cosy, welcoming place to eat, you have to visit the Red Rose Café. I brought my niece & nephew to eat in here and it provides quality home cooking at very reasonable prices. The staff couldn't be more friendly and are always willing to do or give you extra! The owner Bridget Gillespie is a real family woman whose wonderful with children and seems to be very well liked by her customers.
I would not hesitate to recommend this place. The negative comment on here about staff needing 'training' is highly implausible...frankly if it is fine dining & silver service you are looking for, then why did you choose a café? It openly writes on the Red Rose Café menu, that if you are not happy, to please inform the proprietor and they will endeavour to correct things.
The staff are so sound and helpful and the food is great...I will definately be back for a visit!

“Staff needing training”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Had lunch there recently and it was disappointing. Its a bad case when you have to ask the waitress twice if they were open. Chowder was poor whilst the sandwiches were good. The waitress we had needs training in customer service. Its a no frills place which is fine but considering the amount of tourists/surfers in the area its needs to up its game.
