“Lovely location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

The location of this restaurant is great, nice and relaxing. We chanced it and had not booked, when we got there we got a pick of a few tables. If you are wanting a specific table it wouldn't hurt booking as the restaurant did fill up quickly. Food is lovely, partner had Sea Bass, great quality and huge portion. I settled for a pasta dish which also was of a great quality. The only downside is that the service is pretty slow, but other than that a lovely experience

“Lovely setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

The location of this restaurant is beautiful, right on the sea front. It's a great fish restaurant, but you do need to book 24hr in advance, it's very busy and the service can be slow, but due to the location, it's a nice place to sit and relax

“Lovely Setting and Great Sea Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Looking for a nice place to eat in Santa Ponca was really really hard, unless you like the whole brits abroad thing (which if you do fair enough). However whilst looking we stumbled across this little place right on the sea front. Ok so the waiter service wasnt great it was good enough and once you broke the slightly icy exterior (I think they were ultimately just really busy and to be fair struggling across three languages must also be hard) they were quite a good laugh and we always felt well looked after. We visited the place three times trying: seafood paella, salted sea bass, grilled sea bass, hake in green sauce, mussles marineer, garlic prawns, garlic spaghetti, banana cake and their red sangria. All it it was wonderful and the sea food particularly great. Please try the salted sea bass and the hake in green sauce they were awesome! It was a little expensive but from what I found in Mallorca was you really do seem to get what you pay for.

Oh and you may well want to reserve a table as they were very busy and it is really nice sitting as close to the sea as you can.

“fantastic location, amazing paella”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

living in santa ponsa you get to know some of the places to go and some to avoid! This has a brilliant location and great chef. the service is slow but it is because they make every item fresh to order. The best thing as far as i am concerned on the menu is the paella, it is fabulous. If you want a traditional spanish dish served carefully, with brilliant ingredients and real depth of flavor, booka a table on the sea front and sit back for a couple of hours. cant beat it for sunday afteroons, great spot, great food, great staff.
