If it weren't for the sign, you wouldn't know there was a restaurant here at all. It is well sheltered from the road and traffic noise and it has pleasantly laid out eating areas outside and in. We arrived without booking and were pleased to get a table straight away. My wife made the mistake of ordering asparagus as a... More

After reading the reviews and feeling like meat, we drove 40 minutes from Mahon side to have lunch. You can't book as the phone is unanswered. We arrived just before the advertised lunch time of 13.30 and were the first there. They arrived after us and then closed the doors, not a word spoken. We went in, tracked someone down,... More

Food and service very average. Living in the past with modern day prices. Only main meat dishes. No fish dishes. We would not recommend this place.

Awesome Mahon cheese steaks. These will fill you up. It does however take a little time to get your food. Seating is average, limited indoor and outdoor seating, but you won't be disappointed by the food. The employees are very friendly as well!

With the same marketing as El Gallp any other restaurant would be empty: closed during day, no booking , waiter almost looks surprised and worried when we showed up (two families, 8 people). But once you accept the anachronistic policy of underselling, El Gallo reveals itself as a genuine Spanish restaurant : strong in meat and seafood , friendly to... More

I have seen people raving about this place but in the end I was not too impressed. I had a chuleta (for the non-spaniards, this is almost a 1 kg peace of steak on the bone) and I had asked for "poco hecho", meaning rare. Well it was rare and the outside was nicely grilled and had a BBQ taste,... More

The gambas was ordinary, the mushrooms tasteless,and the veal, rubbery. The service was slow , the chairs were plastic, and there were mosquitoes all around the unkempt plants at the edge of the restaurant. There were some cats lounging about. One might think that the setting is quaint with grapevines growing above, but after the nonexistent service and the bad... More

Never lost its rustic charm & that's what still appeals. Not the easiest restaurant to book, won't take booking via email or tripadvisor and closed during the day and the answering machine is all Spanish, had to get the hotel reception to book for us. Good quality sangria, although the Pomada is a tad stingy served in a small tumblr... More

Had dinner with the family (including 3 kids under 6), and we all had a lovely dinner. No kids menu, but they easily found food from the adult menu they liked. Steaks amazing. Would highly recommend.

Found this family run farmhouse by mistake opposite the riding show grounds on the road to Cala Galdana. If your are in the area and/or have a car , make the effort you will not be disappointed. Mainly Locals dining here and I'm not surprised. All home cooked freshly so have a bottle of their wine and await a culinary... More
