We went with having a blind Paella in mind and that's what we had and it did impress our friend who had not been there before but will be going again, the meal was all we expected so what else could you ask

One of only two places open on a chilly February night, not much warmer inside. Definitely felt like eating in a cafe with basic tables. Good menu covering most tastes. Food arrived quickly and was piping hot and portions were very big. Quality and presentation not up to restaurant standards but then again it was very good value. They bring... More

It's a good time to visit Majorca at this time of year so this restaurant was not bustling with visitors but in a relaxed mode. Google Galicia dishes, the Bacalhao was simply delicious. the service was pleasant and we think the place deserves an unqualified recommendation.

There are traces of its roots as a workmans cafe in the food it serves. Whist the area has moved up market it has also changed and the tables across the road by the port provide a great location.Our food was basic and exactly what we expected, no frills and well served.

The perfect spot for a bit of alfresco dining at lunch time, especially watching the boats and yachts in the marina. Service is friendly and informal, and the offering of food is just right for the area (fish/seafood etc) Can definitely recommend the Calamari de la plancha, enjoyed with a litre of the house rosado (if not driving!)

We have been visiting Caracola restaurant for 16 years and as long as I can remember, it has been part of Porto Petro. It doesn't matter what you choose to eat from the long menu, it will be guaranteed to be fresh, well cooked and cheerfully served. Today we decided to stop by for lunch. It was heaving with people...

Food is average what we would call pub grub in the UK. The location offers great views of the mariner and all its activities.
