Ok food, over priced, service acceptable. Paella dreadful, sloppy with one prawn and very little meat, dark brown in colour. Serving for the masses and not really bothered staff.

I'm aware that Spanish restaurants think about keeping British tourists happy but when we try and order in Spanish and don't ask for chips, why do some insist on bringing plateloads of them.? We specifically asked for spanish tortilla and various other tapas but were brought 3 plates of omelette and chips as well as some average tapas. Very frustrating... More

We have an evening meal here and found it to be poor. The food quality wasn't that good and the Spanish omelette had a funny taste and wasn't cooked inside properly. This was promptly sent back and I refused any further meal as it put me off eating there. Furthermore they could do with setting some rules around smoking and... More

Ate here last year and it was very nice so thought we'd try it again. I remembered the menorcan set menu so went for that. How things have changed. The fish soup was half a bowl. Still nice though. But the real disappointment was the grilled lamb main. It was like rubber even though I had a sharp knife. So... More

We were in Cala'n Porter for a week this July and stumbled across this lovely restaurant on our first evening. The pretty hostess and waitresses were pleasant to watch in a beautiful restaurant setting reminiscent of tropical Bali. The evening entertainment, different every night, sets the restaurant apart from the others at the small resort. We dined here twice and... More

Our first meal out of the holiday, in a restaurant that catered for all sorts of tastes, not just your usual British food and local cuisine, but they had a pretty good Indian choice as well. Spaghetti Bolognaise for one child, the nicest Chicken Korma the kids have ever had and a pretty tasty Swordfish from the very reasonably priced... More
