We had lunch there on the first day we were there in Roses, and I had my first ever authentic Spanish paella, and it was everything I hoped it to be. Later on in the week, we decided to cut our Barcelona trip short just to go to Roses again for dinner. It was my aunt's birthday so we BYO champagne and caviar. The staff and the lady manager were most accommodating and helpful. In the end we ordered the live lobsters, lamb chops, hare, and of course, the unforgettable paella.

The atmosphere was very nice and charming for a late lunch.
The service was much better our expectations. But the food was excellent. Very well prepared and delicious. Large variety of sea food.
It is not a sea front restaurant but the ambiance was balanced and nice so you don't feel that you are missing something.
Nice place to dine. Good and delicious food.

What a wonderful experience. The food, wine and ambiance were perfect. As known, best restaurants are not necessarily on the seafront. This one though, is only one black. All the food from the gazpacho to the paella was perfect. Ours was the lobster version. But on top of the great food, was the customer service from the owner on. Can't wait to return!!!

When I'm in Roses I always return to El Jabali which is situated just 50m from the beach. They are always so welcoming and friendly and the varied menu is prepared to a very high standard offering excellent value for money. New this year is a tank containing fresh oysters and lobsters. Well worth a visit.
