We went in there for an early evening meal just after getting off the train from Soller. The restaurant was virtually empty which wasn't a good sign but it was early evening. We ordered two meals of chicken breast with pepper and one meal of Galician Octopus. The octopus had a very strong and off putting smell and the two... More

Huge portions, amazing fresh fish beautifully cooked and served. Unfortunately fried sea food lacked a bit in flavour as it all tasted very similar. Delicious Sangria, probably the best I ever had. The waiter was very helpful, and kind enough to explain what's the best to try and what to mix it with. Overall a good experience.

Good value without a doubt! Very traditional and when we went we were the only tourists.. Full of locals, usually family groups. We definitely got the sense this was traditional authentic Mallorcian food. Okay, it's perhaps not the most refined in its presentation, but it is tasty. Definitely a place to visit if you are staying nearby. It's very much... More

Lunchtime, driving around Mallorca, where to go? By pure coincidence we ended in Don Caracol as the atmosphere and service looked very friendly. After we had a drink we decide to have lunch, and what a lunch it was. Starters. tapas! maincourse meat. That was so much, we couldn't finish it all and of a superb quality. Dessert and coffee...

The portions are big, none of us finished even with the hunger. The side dishes is the same for all types of meat, but... More

Small prices. The best food i've ever eaten in my life(rabbit and grilled chicken actually). A lot of food on the house: bread with garlic souce and baked tomatoes as an apperitive and some fresh desserts also free. The waiters were extremly nice and some of them know english very well. Don't miss this place!

I have eaten 3 times here, it is very Spanish/Mallorquian, seating is rather tight and quite uncomfortable. Service is quick but rather mechanical, prices are cheap and the portions large, too large. The food is ok, but just ok, presented just ok, and for some reason only known to the oriental cook fried rice is served along with your steak... More

We went there to celebrate a family day after getting good references about quick delivery and good value-for-money. It was full and the waiters were overloaded, they did a mess with the orders because they were coming all the time with drinks and food we didn't order. So the delivery was not quick (45min to get the firs dish). Despite... More

This is a good place for families. Certainly the evening we were there there were families at almost every table. The atmosphere was good, the staff were busy but friendly. The food was plentiful and reasonably priced. Yes, I'd go back if I was in the area again.
