“Disappointed ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2015

We visited this restaurant based on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. Sadly it didn't live upto expectations.

We booked a table for a Saturday night and we were surprised that we were the only people dining so the restaurant lacked atmosphere.

We found the menu to be very limited. My husband decided on the lobster and was disappointed to be told they hadn't got any.

Our meals were ok, but nothing special and certainly didn't warrant our taxi trip to Portixol from Palma.

Maybe we went on a bad night but we were very disappointed and intrigued that this restaurant has a high trip advisor ranking given the vast number of excellent restaurants in and around Palma.

“One of the best restaurants in Portixol and home-made food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2014

Looking for a new experience, we went to this restaurant making our choice based on reviews of tripadvisor. We knew this place, since there was a nice meditteranian restaurant running by the same owners. Recently, the owners changed the concept to Italian. They improved the terrace, so you can sit comfortably outside, not beeing bothered by pedestrians. The food is mainly home-made, so there are advantages and disadvantages in it. Vitelo Tonato is simply great (we are big fans of it, so their Vitelo Tonato is one of the best we´ve ever tried!). Home-made raviolis were nice as well, however meat ravioli were too salty for us. Black cod raviolis are very special as well- they are a little sweat, but very tasty. I can´t say much about their wine selection, however they have ¨Torres Gauda¨, so go for it if you like a good white wine, and you won´t be disappointed! They offer large choice of red wines, including local wines and Italian wines. Jose Ferrer is a good choice if you want to try a red wine from the island. We were there on Sunday evening, so the personal was obviously tired after intense weekend, howevver they did their best to make our dinner special! Really great service! We will be there again!

“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2014

We visited this restaurant as a direct result of Trip Advisor - we were not disappointed.

Although this is Italian, it is not your usual Pizza Pad. The menu is varied and interesting with plenty of fresh fish available.

The interior is contemporary and quirky.

The service was professional, efficient and friendly - faultless infact.

So, in summary, great food, excellent service and reasonable. We will certainly return. Thank you for a super evening.

“Lovely Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2014

Just had dinner at bel posto two nights ago on a Saturday. Delightful young waitress was very accommodating, attentive and so nice as was the hostess. Despite it being a Saturday, it was pretty much filled up, but was not overly loud at all. Decor is romantically "eclectic". The food was quite good. The mixed antipasto for two was a great mix of tastes, with fresh burrata, tomatoes, proscuitto salami, pancetta and more. The spaghetti with half lobster in tomato sauce was perfectly done and delicious. Overall reasonable prices. Worth a visit.
