Nice food, great desserts

It's quite a small place, but went here based on the Trip Advisor rating. Friendly and quick service, main meals were OK, but nothing spectacular; however, both the chocolate fudge cake and cheesecake were rather good. Worth a visit.

We went here a couple of times during our weeks holiday and the food and service was always fantastic. The restaurant caters for couples and families and the host makes everyone feel so very welcome. The food was extremely tasty too.

I always visit El Jardin when I visit Santa Ponsa, and as always owner Thomas welcomes me with open arms. This visit was not the best, I believe that Thomas has changed chef and the food was not up to the usual standard, sorry. This will not stop me from going back though as a fantastic restaurant!!

Found this place late in the holiday. Lovely food, reasonably priced. Suckling pig is a must... Very comfortable, nice location and a really nice menu.

Have just returned from a lovely week spending most evenings eating lovely food, fantastic service from Thomas. The Paella is to die for, but Thomas will prepare anything you fancy.

When ever we are in Santa Ponsa we always go to this restuarant as we have never had a bad meal and there is so much to choose from. The service is great and the steaks are particularly good.

We have holidayed in Santa Ponsa for many many years & each year we have eaten in El Jardin. After a gap of a few years we returned in May 2014 & we were delighted to see the restaurant still open & as busy as ever. This time we had our baby with us & Tomas could not have been... More
