Great food

This wasn't our first experience of the "Torre" as my Mother had taken us there more than 30 years ago. The free-range chicken & suckling pig are excellent & form part of the set menu. However, to enjoy this requires a very healthy appetite as the chicken is served as a first course, then the... read more

My wife and I used to come here 42 years ago before getting married and moving to the UK. Now that we live in Mallorca we thought we would go back, but it isn't the same! The food is best described as simple rustic fare, spit cooked chicken and pork, and the speciality is still supposed to be the suckling... More

Firstly this restaurant is not in Cala Rajada . It is located between arta and Canyamel. Secondly, it's brilliant and we ate here twice during our stay in Canyamel. The location at an old tower is beautiful and the restaurant is surrounded by greenery. The views of the local hills are beautiful and the atmosphere is relaxing and romantic. The... More

The end of week one. Best meal in Mallorca so far. Setting is beautiful. Great service. Must have the fire roasted pig. Lamb good too. We will return before leaving Mallora.

This place is a must. The setting is stunning and the food was excellent. You really need to book in advance as it gets full most nights. They do two or three sittings starting at 7pm. We chose the early sitting which was great as we had travelled from Puerto Pollensa . If we stayed at a nearer place I... More

It is such a mallorcan setting, and if it's not too hot you eat in the patio/terrace, have a wonderful sangria and enjoy the multiple good mallorcan dishes. We had Croquetas and the Cod with Tumblet. Excellent choice. I mean this is not one of these places where you get a fancy plate with nice decoration and a drizzle of... More

Usually, I do not stop at restaurants next to tourist sights but I got invited to this restaurant next to the Torre which is visible from far away next to the road to Canyamel and was positively surprised. Nice outside dining under sunshades, friendly staff und a nice smell from the grill where they prepare meat, lamb and suckling pig.... More

A well sited/situated V rustic Mallorcan restaurant with the added bonus of being positioned below what can only be described as one of the islands classic ancient buildings, recently restored & well worth a visit on its own. The restaurant boasts both an excellent restaurant inside & recently a covered space outside, suitable for all year dining. Very easy to... More

Found this place accidentally but went back two times after that. The veal rib steak is a must. Had calamari to start with and was really happy with that, too. Sorbets are also delicious.

Because of the spits my hubby had the suckling pig and it was perfect. I had stuffed zucchini and also very tasty. Our 2 year old had to resort to having 2 tapas (almost as usual in Mallorca) fries and croquettes. We enjoyed and it was served as if in a fast food (less than 10 mins wait between the... More
