We come to Cala’n Porter every summer and this has become one of our favourite restaurants. Tapas dishes are all good but the garlic prawns are amazing

Had evening dinner here in Sept 2023. And what a great experience. Location is out of the way and it can get busy when the Cave bar empties out but we booked a table and had a lovely view of the sunset. Both starters and...main courses were superb. Cannot fault it. Staff were great, very on point and anything you wanted, they got for you. The Sangria is truly lovely. Compared to the other "high end" restaurant local to this? The value was better. Food was as good but at nearly £25 cheaper for an equivalent meal cannot be ignored. We would revisit again for certain. Many thanks to La Palette for a special experience.More

Food was nice but staff are peculiar. We turned up to be told we could have a table but would only be served once 3 other tables had ordered (there were only 7 tables filled at the time). We were “allowed” to order an hour...after sitting down. There was only one waitress and she eventually warmed up but wasn’t the friendliest. We were also told we couldn’t make a reservation ?!More

We visited La Palette twice in July, we had our "anniversary diner" there and went back later in the month for a lunch with family. We had great food and a lovely experience both times and would recommend a visit. They have had more staff...here in previous years and we think the negative reviews probably reflect that difference. Still a lovely place to go and enjoy the food and surroundings. Price is a little bit more than you would pay in the middle of Cala en Porter, but it is worth the difference.More

Family of 6 had an early dinner. Food was good value and everyone enjoyed. The mojitos were enjoyed by all. We ate early and service and waiting time was fine. Did not that some were commenting on waiting time as we left.

I went to have dinner at this place with 2 more friends! We arrived at 8:40pm and the restaurant was half empty. The old lady (waitress) told us it was full and we couldn’t seat! After 2 min another employer came and took us to...a table! Waited 20min to see the menu.. we chose and when the old lady came to take the order said to us we had to wait for 2 more tables to order first before she could take our order… I asked her “what if they take 40min to choose?” She replied in a very arrogant way: “then you have to wait 40 min to order”. Unbelievable attitude.. the place was very nice and have a great potential.More

Visited for lunch when finding bearings in village. Not busy at lunch time, weather was a bit iffy. Largish party on another table meaning service was a little delayed, but on holiday! Great view of bay from our table! Nice menu and food was great...and well presented. Would highly recommend.More

The old lady with the white hair is the rudest waitress I’ve ever seen, it’s like a comedy skit. Told us it would be a one hour wait for food when it was practically empty. Then after 1h20m she asked us what we want and...said it better be something easy. I ordered ribs and she shook her head. There were only 4 tables with people on it in the whole restaurant and she was extremely rude. The food was good though.we arrived at 7.50pm, got our first entree at 9.40pm.More

Good Restaurant, Very cute and great spot, we couldn’t find any menu online before we went so I took some pictures and have attached them. Service was slow but it was busy so it is fine. Food was very good and atmosphere was good. Directly...next to Cava de Xoroi so the car park gets quite fullMore

A lovely venue with a warm welcome. We were a party of 9 on holiday early in the season but the staff were friendly and welcoming. The menu offered a wide range of choices with someone to appeal to everyone. The group wanted a mixture...of menu items and tapas choices.. All the food was beautifully presented and tasted fantastic.More

As a regular visiting to calan porter, I’ve never actually been here, I’ve been missing out. More expensive than in the village, but bigger portions and stunning views. The staff are super friendly too, would definitely recommend

We visited Sept 2022. Last visit 2018. Nothing has changed, great al fresco dining, prices are 10% more expensive than elsewhere but the setting and food makes up for the extra cost. We have been twice now this week, and have booked again next week....My wife is a sea food fan, I'm all meat. The menu is 50/50 seafood / meat. Superb meals, lovely waitress and chap who seems to be bar / assist when needed. Very pleasant. Advisable to book. You have a choice of starters, mains, tapas and baguettes. Opens lunch and dinner .More
