Maybe one of the most typical Restaurants in town of Roses. Not easy to order because they have no menu cards and the english of the owner is also not the best.... But the dishes are tasteful and very good. Don't expect too many sideorders....More

The food is very fresh and delicious, but we made a mistake: As there´s no menu, we asked for the recommendations and it was all very very expensive for what it was. It is a local, simple restaurant, and we never thought that the seafood...More
