Really nice place near the sea. Is quite expensive but you can eat fresh fish from the zone. The cousin is typical catalan and I suggest to choose fish, outside of the menu.

This restaurant is located on the lower terrace of the Hotel. It's name means "Balcony to the Sea" because of its proximity and views to the bay of Roses. The cuisine if of Mediterranean style, where the main focus is the seafood from Roses. The fish arrives daily from the best fish markets.
