A paradise in Roses

We eat here every time we visit the in-laws in roses. The German owners and staff are very nice and speak English as well. Pasta and fish entrees are both excellent. Go here if you're visiting roses!!

We went to this particular restaurant to celebrate a friends's 80th birthday. It had been recommended to us. Everything was delightful. The staff were charming, helpful and very efficient. Thé ambience was all we could have wished for on this very special occasion. The menu was very extensive with some dishes rather expensive but you could avoid these if you... More

We come to Roses every summer in the last 25 years. At least 2 times each year, we visit Die Insel. Forget about The German name of this restaurant. The owners are German, yes, but the food is 100% authentic. The best Paella in town! Great Zarzuela! Perfect mejillones. Try it out!

I have been visiting the Insel and Harry's Bar (both share the same kitchen) for over 10years with my family. Whether you order a seafood dish or a meat dish, it is always meticulously prepared with high quality ingredients. If I had to chose one restaurant that I could eat at every day, as I have in mum's kitchen, year... More

Excellent meat and fish dishes served by efficient friendly staff for me the chateaubriand for meat and the sea bass in salt for fish.Also very good value is the fixed price menu. The same owners also run the very nice bar next door Harry's bar.We think Harry has got it right.

We had our best meal of our holiday in Die Insel. The staff were professional but pleasant. The fixed price menu at 34 euros for 4 courses was worth every penny; a choice of 3 starters, 2 soups, 3 main courses and the dessert of the day. Portions were very generous and the quality of the fish and meat was... More
