There are 153 restaurants in Rosas/Roses currently listed on tripadvisor & it comes as no surprise to notice that Pasko's is tops. The restaurant is a couple of km out of town and if you are fit, you can walk it in 1/2 hour or less. But I would recommend driving or preferably taxi then you can enjoy the excellent wine that accompanies the superb food. I am not going to tell you what to order, that's up to you, but I will say that whatever you see on the menu that you fancy, you can order in the safe knowledge that the food will be über fresh, beautifully cooked, inexpensive and served with the same hospitality with which you were greeted. We two are English and live in France and this means that we are deprived in the normal course of life of a decent beef steak. The French, despite their reputation, do not have beef steak as we know it Jim, especially in the arid, pastureless South. We had the misfortune to stumble into El Grill - Steak House (not listed on tripadvisor when I last looked) in Rosas, enticed by Argentinian T-Bone steak on their glossy new menu. The amorphous splodge that was served did not have a bone, nor even a T-shaped hole where a bone might have been (the waitress said the chef removes the bone) and the meat had never been closer than half a bull to the T-Bone. That was a scam. If they were on tripadvisor, they would be 154. If you want a superb Argentinian fillet, or a Dorade that was still swimming on the day Pasko's serves it, or to re-engage with lamb steak, this is the place to go. As well as carefully selecting the raw food ingredients, Pasko has also selected his staff with the same degree of meticulous attention. David is a gem. Like I said at the top, Run, don't walk to Pasko's. We have decided that our life must include the ingredient that we drive 300 km twice a year from Castillon du Gard in France to Rosas in Spain, to get a decent steak. Last December, I was treated to the #1 restaurant in Strasbourg. Food for food, wine for wine, sun for snow, Pasko's beats Strasbourg.

Wow! Wow! Wow!
You’ve left me speechless! I mean, I knew you’ve enjoyed both of our venues. I knew that you’ve loved Pasko’s ambiance, I knew that I’ve met you personally and we’ve had a lengthy discussions about the life, food, business, but this… You’ve left me speechless.
Thank you for everything. Thank you for enjoying Roses. Thank you for enjoying the sun, sangria and music, Thank you for loving Pasko’s and thanks you for being you…. Thank you!
You guys are one of the best couples and the customers I’ve met. I can’t wait to see you again. Oh “god” this is why I love my job.
P.S. David is absolutely over the moon that you’ve mentioned him in the review and that’s his “pay rise” for this month. He sends his best regards.
