Nice atmosphere and good food

They try to put some touch of apricot - the local fruit - in every dish, and succeed. We went there twice and the service - the same guy - was much nicer the first time than the seond time. The desserts are really good, they have a large selection of home-made cakes.

My husband and I recently ate here whilst staying in Porreres. We had the menu del dia which had remained the same price since last year of 11 euro per person, and included bread, olives water and wine and 3 courses. Amazing value and great quality food, each dish presented very well. Highly recommended and not to be missed.

intended to try this one but the waitress was unwelcoming so we left and had several meals at Sa Placa and Es Centro which were both excellent in every way.

We visited 4 times during our recent holiday, three times for lunch and once for dinner. The lunchtime Menu del Dia is especially good, with 3 courses, bread, alioli, wine and water for 11 euro per person, with a choice of 3 things for starter, main and dessert, and the menu changing on a weekly basis. Sit outside and watch... 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...
