We visit this restaurant everytime we are in roses for lunch. They do an excellant paella but our favorite is the tapas menu. Large portions small prices always very appetising

Stayed at Camping Salata in our VW and wanted a nice Spanish restaurant. Staff were fantastic and with our Spanish and they're English we muddled through. We had 2 tapas starters, mixed paella to share and 3 glasses of large red wine and the bill came to 33euros! Great food, lovely service and brilliant holiday atmosphere, you must visit!

After eating at numerous places up and down the sea front and found the majority lacking in terms of quality of food, service or both, El Cucharon had the best mix of both, the highlight being the friendly multi lingual staff.

Best service we have had too in three weeks. Thank... More

Great welcome ....good food some times a little too much on the plate .....but no problem to be accompanied by our Labernise dog on their covered terrace, they even provided a bowl of water for her ..... we eat there every time we visit Rosas.

We ate here on our first night in Santa Margarita and the restaurant was very and seemed very popular as people were queuing for tables. Portions are HUGE if you are eacting from the menu, so beware of having a starter and main course. We visited twice, and each time the service was quick and attentive.
