We had lobster paella, charged over 50 euros for two people. The 'lobster' was entirely empty shells, we had two pieces which had a tiny chunk of meat in them and the rest had been removed before serving, probably used in the lobster soup they also serve. We spoke to the owner who was immediately very aggressive and refused to... More

Had such high hopes as ordered Lobster Paella -only to receive poor over cooked meal with lobster shell and membrane and one tiny part of main lobster with less than a mouthful of lobster in. The rest were full of rice as the meat had already been extracted. I have never ever seen anything like it before. The owner was... More

We've had two different Paellas, one seafood and one vegetarian. Both were exceptionally good. The staff was very friendly and helped us to make the right choices in selecting the best combination of their food. Try the lemon mousse or loose.

We ate here twice which tells you a lot since we had only 5 days. On our first visit we had grilled fish and when we returned we had the mixed paella. It was the best paella we've had in Spain by a long shot. It's not cheap but the quality of the food is worth it. The wine is... More

Sitting on the street one storey above the sea front, gives this place a really good view. We only stopped in for a light bite at lunch time and as is often the way spent over 20 euros for 3 tapas dishes and mineral water. The prawns we had were very good but the potatas bravas came with pink marie... More

A lunchtime visit. Overlooking the bay from a slightly elevated street the restaurant offered a good menu del dia for €16 plus drinks. Didn't get off to a particularly good start when our server returned to tell us the manager had said we couldn't order a bottle of cava without also ordering food. We ordered! Excellent gazpacho, followed by delicious... More

We've been in Port de Soller a few days now and last night felt like a change from fish so booked a table here and tried the chicken and orange sauce dish; it was absolutely delicious! The service was very, very good and prices are low. I can thoroughly recommend this restaurant. We shall be returning to eat fish there... More

Excellent quality fresh sea food cooked in a traditional Mediterranean/ Mallorcan style, well priced white wine, very friendly staff and a great view. What more could you want? The menu del dia is good value and the gazpacho was delicious and refreshing. Lots of locals eat here (although mainly from the comfort of the air conditioned restaurant rather than the... More

We stumbled upon the restaurant by chance (table for 6) and weren't disappointed. they have a pavement terrace of seating on a slight incline which makes for quirky sort of eating but enjoyable nonetheless. Its an elevated position overlooking the bay/port. Staff were friendly & attentive (spoke very good English) and told us it was family run for many years.... More

Let me do the positive stuff first. The food was very nice, the staff were very pleasant and the location, with the view over the bay, idyllic. However, (and bear in mind this was a quite time of year), we were told that we couldn't order tapas and then order our main meal later, we had to order it all... More
