As a place for a reunion of university friends this may not immediately leap out as an option, however it was the one we chose and it proved to be inspired. We booked a table for the tasting menu and arrived at 8. After 14...More

Great service, extraordinary presentation of food and deserts. The menu was somewhat limited the night we dined but we were able to make a very satisfying meal from multiple starters and desert.

The service was extremely proficient and it occupies arguably the most privileged location on the coast however we were underwhelmed by the food. We had the tasting menu which was nicely prepared but so large (there are three puddings) and it felt like quantity rather...More

Food just about ok. Some courses good and some indifferent. Service not up to standard. Ambience totally wrong - you are in the hotel restaurant with children, smokers and others. Wines ok but overall this is not a 1star experience. Compartir in cadaques much better...More

Didn't realize this restaurant was in our hotel and went without any preconceptions. The meal was truly amazing. The Cava based Catalan salad and Steak Tartare desert were highlights and 2 of the best dishes we've ever had. Must visit in Roses.

We are still stunned by the extraordinary dinner we had at Els Brancs. After loving the short tasting menu last week, we made a reservation for last night. We had mentioned that it might be nice if the chef could introduce one or two different...More

Els Brancs is the gastronomic restaurant of the Hotel Vistabella and its name derives from the small isles anchored directly in front. It is located on a terrace over a small cliff of the Bonifaci beach. This privileged location not only offers the possibility to admire the famous sunsets, but also pairs perfectly its cuisine with the surroundings of the Bay of Roses. The magnificent natural areas and the rich products of the region, together with the originality and passion are the key factors to let the customers enjoy a sixth sense.
