I started with a tomato bread which was good. This was followed by an "Amuse Bouche" of a little warm vol au vent filled with cheese and herbs. I chose Red Mullet. It was served in a very light batter with a delicious stuffed tomato and a roasted pepper with a very nice salad including olives and capers. For dessert... More

I went to Vell Parrander with a strong recommendation, and I was looking forward to the dinner. I have been in most of the restaurants in Cales Fonts (Delio, Sirocco, Trébol...) and I was expecting a very good experience. I made a reservation with time but when I arrived i was placed in a bad table in a corner. This... More

Mainly a fish seafood restaurant and that's why we went in and although the fish we had was tasty and cooked well (sea team and cod gratin dishes) it's rather pricey and in terms of accompaniments there are few. I had a slice of potato and a grilled stuffed half tomato to accompany my sea bream. We dined twice in... More

This was our third visit. Previously we had been quite impressed with the food, but this time it was very disappointing. Four of us chose from the menu del dia. The best part of it was the lovely sobrasada (local sausage) with a touch of honey on bread that we were given at the very start. For the first course... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the set menu of garlic prawns, entrecôte steak and homemade dessert. The owner was attentive but not intrusive and the meal was very good value. Well worth a visit.

The menu is disappointingly presented and doesn't do the restaurant any favours. We opted for this quay side venue on our third night of our stay so had an opinion of the general feel of Es Castell. The food was reasonably presented but it wasn't a fish dish which seemed to be the choice of most of the adjoining tables.... More

The view looking out down the harbour is incredible. There is a very good value Menu of the day with lots to choose from. Shellfish are a real speciality. The service is excellent and effortless. We often eat there and will return soon.

Es Castell is a great place for fish restaurants: picturesque location and obviously lots of fresh fish. It's hard to choose where to go since they all offer broadly the same menu. We chose this one because it was towards the end of the harbour which gets extremely crowded late in the evening. Its a small family-run place with menus... More
