Description: Los platos de alta cocina creados por Macarena de Castro, cocinera y propietaria del local, son un disfrute. Permanecen fieles a la cocina tradicional de Mallorca. Recupera productos agrícolas casi abandonados, especies de peces mediterráneos infravalorados y piezas cárnicas gustosísimas, olvidadas en la ajetreada vida global. Macarena presenta un menú quincenal, sumamente equilibrado según los más expertos, compuesto de tres aperitivos, tres entrantes, un pescado, una carne, un pre-postre, quesos y un postre, siempre delicioso.

We thought we were going for a 25 euro menu, but it turns out the menu del dia was only 9.50 (result!)
We had courgette soup and vegetable tortilla to start, both very obviously homemade. Followed by monkfish skewers and minute steak with great homemade chips. Finishing with strawberries and cream and the ubiquitous "pudding". Really couldn't fault the food at all.....clearly cooked by good chef.
My only criticism was that the service was too fast! (I know an odd complaint)

We will go again and try the restaurant itself - they do an 11 course tasting menu!!

We ate in the Bistro and were delighted that the lovely terrace was sheltered enough to sit outside. the Menu del dia and Bistro menu were both fantastic. Just be careful when booking via the site that you specify whether you are booking for the Bistro or the (fabulous looking) restaurant.

Went for a lunch with kids to El Jardin. Preselected menu was simply delicious offering more than 10 different testing sensation. All great with sweets being spectacular. Also for kids they offered testing menu (25€) which was very nice as they could enjoy the "ceremony" while eating their favorite little burgers, chicken nuggets, fish, etc. Excellent service...maybe the ambient could be a bit better for this type of restaurant...anyhow highly recommended.

My husband took me for the last night of our holiday last week. Having eaten here a couple of years ago, we were very much hoping nothing had changed. We were very pleasantly suprised to see a new Bistro style menu where we ate the last time, all looks fab, just sorry we didnt know they had done this before we went. We went for the tasting menu, now seated upstairs. I love the atmosphere, decor, everything about this restaurant. The tasting menu has 11 courses, all simply melt in the mouth. Dont have much to eat during the day if you are going for this menu.We had scrambled eggs with mushrooms, pumpkin soup and fried aubergines servered at the same time, followed by greenfinch, sea cucumber, mhai mhai, pigeon,apples - apple sorbet, with different apples around it, , cheese, and much more. I cant rate this highly enough. The service was outstanding though out. The olive and rustic breads were beautiful. the pate we were servered also, not part of hte menu, but no extra charge was devine. We went with a local white wine, cant remember the name, but it was in a blue bottle.
The chef came out to meet us after the meal, which we both thought was a lovely touch.
The tasting menu was €70 pp, with the only extrats being wine and water. I think for what we got, and the quality of the food, service and overall setting, this is well worth it.
I cant wait to return again, this is a little gem.

This, put simply, is the best meal out I've ever sampled!!!!

The food was plentiful and very impressive. The restaurant was quite quiet when we ate (close to the end of season) but speaking to the very helpful staff they state bookings are a must during the high season (but you can do this from there website before you go!!)

The setting is very impressive, as though your a world away from all the stereotypical bars that serve the usual burgers n pizzas!! Perfect setting for a special occasion meal!

The price for such a good meal was very reasonable, you'd certainly struggle to eat this well in this country for what we paid, worth every penny!!!!

Alot of the other reviews on here state that any visit to Alcudia must include a visit here, I couldn't agree more! We've even decided that if we stayed in another part of the island it would be more then worth a taxi ride just to come and eat here again!!!
