Honnest, high quality Mallorca food

Enjoy this great local restaurant. Its a must try if you are on this part of the Island. Enjoy your dinner in the beautifull garden in the townhouse. Open grill inside the restaurant. Its authentic, oldfashioned, not posh, high quality. But its also rustic and straight.

Regular -german- customers are welcomed warmly, they appreciate the "show" by the self-confident owner. The location is nice, the food average, 80% of the food comes from the grill, no sauces, midwarm vegetables, pass your way and let the germans get busted there.

Great welcome and a wonderful surprise when lead into the vine clad courtyard . The food is good, mainly BBQ dishes but not outstanding. Suitable for families as the menu has many plain grilled items. However, two of our group share a mixed fish stew which they recommended . Good atmosphere, particularly as it becomes dark and you are sitting... More

We ate at this restaurant after a recommendation from friends, the setting was delightful, a lovely courtyard out back, very romantic under the grape vines, we found the staff very friendly and welcoming. The food was good but nothing out standing with a very predictable menu, we would probably return.

The quality of this restaurant starts the minute you walk in the front door with what is a very warm welcome from all the staff. You instantly feel as if you amongst friends. The food was fresh, beautifully cooked and the atmosphere was just stunning. Truly a hidden gem that I will be visiting at every opportunity.

In a village with maybe 800 people, we found this amazing restaurant with a cosy terrace full of food lovers. The quality of food was beyond expectations, while the service was just perfect. I loved the fois gras!

I am sorry to write this review. I have been to this restaurant many times in the past 10 years, and whilst it is expensive the food has been 'ok' and I've accepted the slow service.
