“Great location and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Since they revamped the sea front at Soller and made it a pedestrian walkway the number of beachfront eateries has grown significantly. We have been visiting Soller for twenty years and applaud the changes to the promenade as it has made things safer for strolling NAND enjoying the stunning harbour.
But the increase in choice of restaurants means that you need to sift carefully to get good food and a fair price,
Our guide book lists El Pirata as one if the better harbour front eateries but we'd not eaten there before. We took the plunge and were well pleased. We had a good table on the harbour front (good for watching the world go by). Our smiley waitress was helpful and attentive. I had the sardines and despite a recent review on this page they were fresh and we'll cooked with a great veg accompaniment that was tasty. My wife had the tuna steak which was cooked to her specific request at the suggestion of the waitress. We enjoyed a good local rose wine and the bill was reasonable.
Top tip - if you want a harbour table then book earlier in the day. It gets very busy after around 9.30. Another tip, take a stroll round the harbour pre dinner and see some stunning boats.

“Solid tapas, efficient service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

We dined here for tapas in the late afternoon. Service was friendly and efficient. Location on harbor is great. Offerings were basic but tasty. Family friendly as well

“Average tourist place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Very nice located by the harbour, nice friendly staff. We had 10 different tapas which all was tasteless and kind of boring unfortunately. The price is a little steep for the quality they serve. We can't recommend El Pirata I'm afraid.

“Poor food, over priced, wouldn't recommend”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We stopped here for dinner on the first night of our holiday and were very disappointed. It had received a good review in the Rough Guide so we were assuming it to be a relatively safe bet. Between us we had grilled sardines (did not taste fresh) and pork in pancetta (dry and cold). The portions were also a disappointing size. Had it not been for the service - which was very good - there would be little redeeming. There are plenty of nice places to eat in port de soller so give this one a wide birth.

“Great food and nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

This restaurant isn't the classical touristic fraud. The paella was great with a lot of seafood at a fair price. We also ordered a dessert and we enjoyed it a lot. The sight to the harbour and the gulf and friendly waiters made our dinner the best one at Mallorca so far. Recommended!
