All I can say is that what we all ate from start to finish was absolutely delicious. Harry prepared a special menu of 3 sublime starters, which where cooked and presented to perfection. We then chose our mains and these too didn't disappoint. The service was very professional and friendly, my rather annoying food allergy was taken into account and... More

A superb quality restaurant, possibly the best in Roses! Situated just back from the seafront, the chef Harry is very talented and service is excellent. Highly recommend it!

We went for Sunday lunch with friends from RSA and Germany as we knew it was a favourite of a German neighbour. We had a good meal that we all enjoyed, served very professionally.

We went to Die Insel to celebrate an occasion. BIG mistake! Referring to the last reviewer’s title ”Good food and if all goes well you won't meet the owner's wife”, we unfortunately did meet the owner’s wife. This restaurant is not cheap, we knew that before we went, but we had a celebration and thought Die Insel would be perfect.... More

We recently had lunch with friend at "Die Insel". The fish of the daily menu was out so I asked for another kind of fish. The owner's wife suggested tuna and I accepted. When the tuna came it had a strange taste. I let one of my friends taste and he agreed that something was not quite right. I called... More

We had the pleasure of experiencing the best that Roses has to offer when my husband and two daughters visited Die Insel. We absolutely loved the food which was exquisite, the service attentive and the atmosphere which was relaxed and friendly. There is an excellent wine list and the quantities of food were ample which is not always the case... More

We eat here every time we visit the in-laws in roses. The German owners and staff are very nice and speak English as well. Pasta and fish entrees are both excellent. Go here if you're visiting roses!!

We went to this particular restaurant to celebrate a friends's 80th birthday. It had been recommended to us. Everything was delightful. The staff were charming, helpful and very efficient. Thé ambience was all we could have wished for on this very special occasion. The menu was very extensive with some dishes rather expensive but you could avoid these if you... More

We come to Roses every summer in the last 25 years. At least 2 times each year, we visit Die Insel. Forget about The German name of this restaurant. The owners are German, yes, but the food is 100% authentic. The best Paella in town! Great Zarzuela! Perfect mejillones. Try it out!
