Restaurant details

We discovered this restaurant just off the seafront last year, and really enjoy it every visit. We are now "regular" diners (even though we've eaten there less than a dozen times!) And we are appreciated for coming. We believe that all of the food is freshly prepared and was very good quality and flavour.

We've had both the €9.90 And €18.00 menu and have enjoyed both equally. This visit we tried the paella (delicious), macaroni (luscious) spaghetti Bolognese (gorgeous) onion soup (amazingly cheesy), Catalonian salad (very pretty and tasty), tartare of cod (interesting), squid cooked on the plancha (garlicky and finger licking good!), chicken (moist but crispy), Catalan sausage and white beans (scrumptious) and perfectly cooked veal steak which was juicy and lovely.

The restaurant is family run and all of those who served us were very charming and engaging and very professional. They serve Catalonian bread - smeared with tomato and olive oil. We also got beautiful aioli which we gobbled up. Luckily we both love garlic or it would have been impossible to bear one another. And then there are the olives, I find it hard to credit that I only started eating olives about three years ago. Now, I'm almost addicted to good olives, and those at the Roc Fort were good.

The red wine was particularly good. I loved my Sangria and the rose was another favourite. The white was not chosen a second time. We were treated with little digestif at the end of each meal. All customers were treated well and got all the little extras too.

We will happily go to the Roc Fort every time we visit Roses. It is not on the seafront. But the freshly made food and the lovely staff make every visit a pleasure.

We are going there every year and never disappointed. Food is simple but always fresh and home-cooked and the prices are ridiculously cheap.
A must do in Roses for those who likes traditional Spanish cuisine.
If I had to find something that would be the French fries which are the usual frozen ones and under fried in the you can Spanish way, go for the patatas bravas instead, they are delicious and fresh.

Visited on a Friday lunchtime, very busy, seemed full of locals, families and holidaymakers alike- a real buzz about the place. Very good value 'menu-del-dia' with plenty of choice. Despite being full service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend.

My tip is to visit the Citadel in the morning, (which is also very good) and retire for lunch here which is only 5 mins away, in the street that runs along the side of the Citadel).
