“A worthwhile choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

On a very quiet early March Sunday evening, with most of the handful of restaurants that were open totally empty, this place was buzzing with many Spanish diners - a good sign we thought!

We were not disappointed, within the context of what else we experienced whilst in the resort. The staff were very friendly and efficient, and the food was better than average and not too expensive.

If you're looking for that 'middle ground' between a cheap Steak Bar/Pizza place, and a top level restaurant, this could be the place.

“Friendliest place ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2011

We have been visiting La Colmena (The Beehive) for many years now & have always found the owners & staff to be the friendliest in Palma Nova, the food is fantastic, the sangria is gorgeous & the banana liqueur & brandy just finishes the meal off, we will return again at our earliest opportunity, our best wishes go to every one. keep up the good work.
