What a great find!

This was a lovely restaurant with really good food. The service was friendly, but there was only one waitress and the place got very busy and we waited quite a while for our check. Totally worth it, though, as the food was so good, beautifully presented and an incredible value. My husband had a... read more

The menu del dia is very good value and we found the food to be excellent and served by welcoming and friendly staff. The restaurant is housed in a very interesting historic building and tastefully decorated. The emphasis is on local produce and we really enjoyed our meal. We would certainly make a return visit.

This restaurant is our favourite in Porreres. We have visited many times as we live on a small finca near the town during the winter months. The menu del dia has three alternatives for starter and main course. We have never been disappointed or left still hungry! This last time was no exception.

The setting for this restaurant is wonderful . We chose from the set menu del dia ,but from the start we were disappointed with the service. A lukewarm welcome , and a empty restaurant - they seemed uninterested in our custom from the word go. I am all for a pretty plate but not when artful presentation disguises minuscule portions....

Had already read reviews so gave it a try although late in day and only one choice of main but certainly best meal I've had all week. Even the bottle of white wine included in price (choice) was really good. Food and presentation easily equalled that of any top restaurant. Really annoyed we didnt try it earlier in our stay...

We visited this restaurant for lunch twice during our recent stay in Porreres and were very impressed with the quality and value of its 3 course lunch menu, 11 euro including water, wine bread and olives! We thought the starters and main courses were particularly good and very well presented. The menu changes on a weekly basis and was the... More

My husband and I ate here twice during our 5 days trip to the area. Each time we had the lunch 3 course menu (11 euro inlcuding bread, olives, water and wine!) On each occasion, the food was lovely, fresh and plentiful. On our next visit, we will certainly be heading here again, many thanks

This was our first stop in Mallorca on way to our accommodation. Inside was really cosy. Lots of food on the menu looked appetising and the cakes looks yummy. We had some tapas which were great and some wine/coffee. Service was friendly, efficient and helpful. Would like to go back to try a full meal.

So we visited this restaurant this week, food and service were both spot on! The lunch menu of the day at 11 euros for 3 courses was perfect!
