“YOU PAY FOR THE LOCATION”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

This restaurant is beautifully situated overlooking the beach and the staff were very attentive. However, the food, although good, was horrendously expensive. I had pa amb oli (toasted bread with olive oil, garlic, tomato, cheese and ham) and two very small beers. The pa amb oli was beautifully presented, dressed with chicory and dill, and the ingredients were very fresh and tasty, but it didn't make it worth 13 Euros. I was charged a further 4 Euros for the two wine-glasses of beer I had. Porto Cristo has many other lovely tapas bars which are considerably cheaper.
