Location and contact

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.

Fantastic food with a fantastic view over the bay of Roses. We had the 19 course tasting menu. Luckely portions are small , so you don't feel over eaten after the evening. Top restaurant , super good service.

We have been to many Michelin star restaurants around the world, but this takes some beating. The food is exceptional as expected, the service is second to none, but the view on the terrace is outstanding. We arrived 30 mins early to enjoy a drink...More

Had some amazing food there however I think the view was the best part about it and felt we had better food in some of the other resturants in the area.
