“Excellent Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This restaurant is on the far side of the Marina beteen the sports port and the fishing port.
A gentle stroll will take you from Roses centre toward the buildings on the port where Bikatora is situated.
The food is an eclectic mix of seafood and meat, all cooked to a very high standard. A captains or daily menu is offered during the day from 14 euros to 25 euros. Wine and other beverages are priced fairly.
The crispy prawns in romesco sauce are fantastic, and are often included in the captains menu offer.
This year they have some fairly garish green menus in different lanuages which have spoilt the ambiance a little, but dont let that put you off.
The service is excellent and on the days that you can't eat outside for the weather, the restaurant has an airconditioned first floor which overlooks the pretty marina.
Fish of the day is fresh and comes from the fishing port next door.
We will be eating there again on our next visit.

“Best restaurant in Roses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We are in roses 6 or 7 times a year and always visit this restaurant. It is based in the yacht harbour of Roses so unless you know about it, then it would be easy to look at the boats in the harbout but not realise there are 2 restaurants in the yacht harbout about 5 mins walk from the main boulevard of Roses. All you have to do is walk to the end of the car park in the yacht harbour and you are there. We visited again last night and it was lovely and romantic as the restaurant next door had a piano and singer on the terrace playing jazz and old american soft blues. The food in Bitakora is a cut above most of the other restaurants in Roses, as is the service. It is lovely to sit on the Terrace as it is a bit quieter than in the main part of town. The Captains menu is good, a bit more than you standard restaurants but still a good value at 25 euro's. For a 3 Euro supplement you can swap you main in most cases to one from the a'la carte menue. If you do this then I cannot recommend the suckling pig or duck enough. To start I also suggest the cripy prawns in romesco sauce, a bit of art in the construction of these prawns wrapped in filo pastry. I cannot understand why Bitakora is not higher in the list of where to eat. We have eaten in all the restaurants at the top, some deserve to be there but others are basic meat, fish, hamburgers with a bit of salad and frites. Bitakora is well worth a visit for lunch or dinner. Fantastic, Fantastic

“Brilliant Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

I spend my holiday in Rosas for years. Every year I have a nice dinner in this place. Food really good, not cheap but if you can afford worth it! If I can I will return every time I'm going to Roses! Messi had dinner there as well! Enjoy
