Being frequent guests at El Pirata, we had been told many times we should try Els Brancs, and we chose this one Michelin star restaurant to celebrate my birthday. The experience was truly amazing, including the restaurant decor, the extremely polished service and the excellent food, full of surprises and little details. Thank you Eric Borras and team, for once... More

My husband and I had dinner at els Brancs in July. Our tasting menu dinner of 20 or so dishes was not only excellent, but the presentation was fun and entertaining. In addition, dinner was served on the terrace, and the view was beautiful. I highly recommend dinner at els Brancs.

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 items into what we expected to be the same menu. Instead, he had prepared an... More

We stayed at Hotel Vista Bella on our honeymoon which is a beautiful hotel to begin with. Amazing views, excellent rooms, and excellent staff. We knew about els Brancs in the hotel but wasn't sure if we should take the time to eat there despite the Michelin star. That would have been a HUGE mistake. This restaurant is phenomenal. First,...

The gourmet experience offered here is exceptional and I feel quite unique. The way every dish is presented and the level of theatre the staff evoke make the meal an event not just a dining experience. Every course was so complementary to the last that the meal flowed across the palate that you just kept thinking how did that happen.... More

Even if we travel in Costa Brava almost every year, and eat at good restaurants, we had never visited Els Brancs. What a nice surprise. Obviously a Michelin star raises expectations, but still. The welcome, valet service and reception is very friendly. Since we were early, we had aperitifs in the terrace bar with magnificent views. In the restaurant, we... More

This restaurant was nothing short of faboulous. We chose the EUR 80 menu, but afterwards whished we had gone for the EUR 150 one! Small dishes, but they felt like explosions of fantastc taste, everyone of them. Surely a meal to remember forever. Great sunset view, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Recommended!

This is an amazing "gastronomic" experience. The food is amazing, they received their first Michelin star in 2013. The view is breathtaking and the service is impeccable. Its a must try if you are in Roses!!

Stayed overnight at the hotel and decided to eat here as a treat. I simply cannot describe how good it was.... one of my top three meals ever. This was just a masterpiece of taste and texture.... eat here quickly before the chef becomes very famous indeed! The food and the tastes and the texture were just works of art.... 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.
