The location of this restaurant is seriously lovely, it's at the top of the cliffs so you look back at Port Soller from quite a height. The view is worth the trip up and the food was rather good too - local seafood starter dishes were very good and the main course fish dishes were good too. However the noise... More

The view from this restaurant is spectacular. It is interesting to see Port de Soller from the opposite side, and with lovely clear weather we witnessed a spectacular sunset which made the port and the surrounding mountains change colours as the sun went down. It was like watching Uluru at sunset!!! For starters we ordered a collection of shell fish... More

As this restaurant came recommended in one of Jamie Oliver's articles on Mallorca, we had to try it. The view is spectacular. Food is way above average, service very good, and yes the gambas of Soller are exceptional. Make sure to book a table in advance to avoid surprises.

Fabulous view in a high position next to a Light House overlooking the whole of Port Soller and the Sea. Very fish and shell fish orientated but that's not a complaint it just limits the non fish eaters who go there. Service excellent food excellent can't fault it if you want a special meal in a wonderful position. Not cheap... More

Totally worth a taxi ride up the hill - it's a lot further than it looks when you add in all the switchbacks! Has some fantastic freshly caught seafood prepared to order exactly the way we asked. Five star service, and the price tag wasn't as horrendous as I thought it might be!

Es Faro is a lovely Mallorcan restaurant located next to the main lighthouse of Soller, perched atop of an outcrop at one point of the crescent bay. When we recommended it by our hotel concierge, we were initially hesitant due to the mixed reviews. We need not have worried (the meal was fantastic) but we also now understand why the... More

Wonderful views from this restaurant with and the food was beautiflully presented but it is very expensive which is why I was surprised that when a large fly dropped in my wine just after the waiter had filled up my glass I was given a fresh glass but not offered a replacement wine.

After a lovely walk to see the Lighthouse beside this restaurant I decided to have a coffee there to scout out whether we might try it for a meal. I was told fairly abruptly that I could not go into the restaurant as this was only for meals. I asked if I might have a coffee on the terrace. I... More
