“A Great Pub/Restaurant”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

On our 2 day break to Redcastle my husband had looked on tripadvisor for local pubs/restaurants.Rosato's Bar had great reviews so we decided to give it a try.We had called in previous day and had a look at menu for evening meals & decided to give it a try.
They don't take bookings so we decided to go early about 18-45pm to be sure of a table.Well when we arrived it was packed but we were lucky enough to get last table free.
The menu was excellent,lots of locally sourced fish dishes and for those who don't like fish plenty of other options.The food was excellent and considering how busy they were was served really quickly those very obviously freshly cooked.The staff were excellent though how they managed to even make it to the table with so many people waiting for tables was amazing.By the time we left there must have been at least 30 people waiting for tables,which must be a testament to the food if they were prepared to wait for a table for up to an hour (standing as no room to sit down).
Thanks tripadvisor another great find.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

A world class restaurant-bar in the small and friendly town of Moville in Inishowen area. The food is high quality, fresh and local produce served hot. The atmosphere with the fireplaces and layout of local farming items around the bar ceilings etc lend to the flavour. Service is excellent and a conversation with the locals is not to be missed.

“Rosato's beautiful bar”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Called into this bar for a bite to eat tonight while staying at Redcastle hotel. Food was outstanding. Better than the food in the 4* hotel! :) very quiet possibly as we went in as soon as it opened and considering its a Tuesday but was very cosy with open fire at either side of the room. Friendly and quick service. Not overly expensive either. Worth every penny. Will definitely go back next time I'm in moville :)

“Great Menu Choice and Value for Money”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I travelled with a group on a Winter golfing trip to the Inishowen Penininsula in Donegal and this was our first port of call for our evening meal.

We were looking for choice, value for money, a few drinks and friendly surroundings. Rosato's Bar fitted the bill perfectly, with lots of choice on the menu from their large selection of pizzas, other Italian fare, fish, etc - enough choice to satisfy everyone.

Service was friendly, food was served quickly and quality was good too. Would recommend Rosato's to anyone.

“Delicious food for a Birthday or indeed any day !”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Had eaten in Rosato's twice before and enjoyed it so much I
wanted to go back for my Birthday. Four of us went along, it
was quite busy at the bar but after ordering our first drink we
were given the menu which has a great selection of food. Three
of you went for Fillet steak and one of the party had Cod. We
did not have to wait long for our table or the food which was absolutely
delicious, could highly recommend this bar with great atmosphere as
a place to visit if anywhere near Moville, Donegal,
Great Chowder soup if you like it, one of the best chowders I have ever
had, deserts great too, forget about those calories and enjoy one.
Our friends had not been there before and I'm sure they too will return.
The music started around 10.30 , a bit loud but the girl had a good voice.
they served supper, sandwiches free which I thought was nice for those
just out for a few drinks.
We will definately go back to this warm friendly bar/restaurant.
I must add we just walked in off the street and did not pre-book a table.
