“The good seafood with spectacular view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

The restaurant belongs to the best hotel in Roses and located on its front part. The view is even more important , than food , though the food was good too. We took a long journey to get there , but it worth it. It is ranked by Michelin guide .

“Wonderful place to sit & enjoy lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Beautiful view of the bay, warm sunshine, the waves lapping the rocks beneath you, a glass of wine in hand....
Great food, very attentive staff & service.
Not the cheapest place to eat in the locality (use the Wimpy in town otherwise).
Would return.
(apologies for waxing lyrical @ top - based on special occasion last year!)

Your eating under the shade of trees on the second terrace of the hotel, enjoying great Mediterranean food with freshly caught fish.
Pleasant, nice and knowledgeable stuff.

“Super fish restaurant overlooking the sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Great food, excellent menu and really attentive and helpful staff. Good value for money and the portions are big so you need an appetite.
The large Gambas are very expensive enquire about the price before you order.
