We had a plaisant stay on the terrace at the Plaza Catalunya. We went there with friends to have lunch. We ordered several typical Spanish tapas like patatas bravas and all kinds of fish and fried balls. All food was of a fine quality which we had with a well served drink.

We ate here 4 times in a week, for lunch and dinner. Inside is just as great as outside if the weather is cool in the evening. Service is perfect never had to wait, courteous staff, wonderful tapas dishes. The goats cheese salad is to die for. Lovely glass of rose wine for just 2 euros 50. Don't miss it... More

Probably a 3 and half star to be fair but hey. Lovely tapas in the sun and sangria was perfect. Prices were reasonable too and a place perfect for lunch. Grilled squid was excellent as was the cod croquettes. Would return.

This place may not look like much at first glance but we really enjoyed the food here. There is a lovely outdoor patio to sit in just inside the town square. Excellent fresh food – we went two nights in a row!

We where three people that had tapas at El Caiman last night (23.06.2015). The food was good and can be recomended if you look for a rustic restaurant at the seafront of Roses. They have several tables available on a terrasse infront of the restaurant and even room for a good capacity of customers Inside, in case of rain or... More

A great spot with fantastic service and very good large tapas style food at very reasonable. So good we came back many times, sitting out in the seafront square, watching the local people dance the Sardana.Great place to eat and relax, my wife, elderly parents and two teenagers all loved El Caiman.

Had the Magret de Pato (very dry) and the Merluza (way too salty). The salad was good but small. Service was friendly but half of our stuff didn't arrive. Definitely not up to the standard expected for its prices.
