Great relaxing restaurant on the harbour.

Right on the seafront at the beautiful Porto Colom. Very good fresh fish dishes straight out of the bay so super fresh. Imaginative too. Friendly service, fair prices and good wines. An excellent choice and one I would reccomend.

We came here after seeing the reviews on Tripadvisor. The food and service were fabulous. Much better than we had previously had at other restaurants locally. Well worth a visit........

Found this on our last night and it was both the nicest and cheapest place we visited. my daughter and I had two mains of grilled salmon and carbonara and water for 27 euros, freshly cooked and plentiful, we couldn't fault it. beside a burgerbar, we nearly bypassed this restaurant, but it was relaxed, a very family friendly place and...

But it was early evening and we were starving so we did. Greeted by a handsome smiling waiter (who turned out to be the owner or... More

Very cosy restaurant, especially because of the outdoor part - lots of plants and shadow. The waitors are all very polite and helpful, both to the custumors and also to themselves - nice to be in a place with a good atmosphere!!! I can really recommend the starters, especially the ham one with pineapple. Mums!!!

We visited this very busy restaurant on East coast Mallorca. Porto Colom do not offer many restaurants above the pizza level, but Es Retorn is for sure one of the better ones. Exiting menu with many good proposals, try I.e. their Pineapple/Ham Carpaccio or some of their many others delicious dishes. Friendly service, from time to time rather busy as... More

Very cheap compared to the other local restaurants, and there is nothing bad about it, just dont expect singing and dancing! very good if... More
