First slide


Bar, cocktail lounge, meeting place, dining room, confessional: Rosa is Whiteladies Rd contemporary new watering hole for those of you looking for a decent drink, music and bite to eat.

We’re a social lot here at No 85. We’re about friends, loved ones, work mates and family. You provide the chatter and laughter (our bar staff are good listeners too). And we provide a cosy, world influenced bar with a drink & food offering carefully designed to suit different moods and needs; across the days of the week and hours of opening. All in the heart of Clifton.

The menu is internationally inspired, contemporary world tapas and bar snacks. Ideal for sharing. See our Food pages for details.

Upstairs at Rosa are our stylish private rooms. The larger of which is also ideal for business & community meetings and presentations.

Then there is the paved front terrace; a sun trap set back from the road for al fresco lunches, supper and after work drinks.

Come and say hello. We look forward to greeting old friends and making new ones.

Our Christmas menus are now available and we are accepting bookings. Please call the restaurant and ask for Alec to organise your party.

Inspired by a meeting in Barcelona with world renowned El Bulli chef Ferran Adria and his vision for contemporary tapas bars, the Rosa team has developed an internationally inspired world menu made fresh every day in the kitchen, to small & large plates for sharing.

Sharing, comparing, indulging … It’s a sociable and fun way to eat, whether for lunch or dinner…

But we get it that, for some, there are dishes just too good to pass round.

That’s why our plates are designed to either work in harmony as a feast for many.
Our staff will be only too happy to recommend good plate combos and the ideal number of plates required for your table.
Everything, including the bread, is made fresh in-house daily.


We will be running occasional events and special promotions so watch this space.
