As has been mentioned this restaurant on the main square is a great place to watch the world go by whilst enjoying a good meal. This is another restaurant that appears to be under new management. This is not a criticism as such, but in...More

We went there with a big group of 20 people to eat paella. We ordered different ones, the one with seafood was quite good, but the vegetarian one was quite tasteless. The ambiente is very nice on the main square at night with children running...More

I'm the director of the restaurant, I was there that night. I do not find correct your comment because we have served three kinds of different paellas (meat, mixed, vegetarian and seafood). You asked the waiter to serve you again but the vegetarian was already...More

We had pizzas here on the last of our holidays and enjoyed them very much. They were huge as well! The only slight criticism was some black burnt bits on one of them (perhaps too far back in pizza oven!) and the mushrooms on other...More

Ate here a few days into our stay in Pollença, having had such good food to date we didn’t want to break our dining streak. The paella didn’t look as good as we’d had elsewhere, so opted out of that. We went for the Can...More

We’ve eaten here twice on this trip and enjoyed both visits. It’s right on the Pollença square so you get a good view to people watch. I had the tuna pizza and my husband had a mixed topping of vegetables and ham. They were freshly...More

Visited early evening today. The staff are very attentive in that they do not leave you alone. We ordered a meat paella and was disappointed with the taste and lack of meat. It was full of bones! There were also flies everywhere. We wanted authentic...More

thank you for your comment, we are sorry you didn't like the paella. you should have told us and we could give you something else. To have a paella without bones you have to order a " paella ciega" . About the flies, it was...More

In our week in Pollença we came to this bar 3 times. We had the tapas each time which was really really tasty. The wine was very good & service almost perfect. The manager (I’m assuming that’s who he was) was very grumpy & complained...More

An easy option in Pollensa Old Town. We have been going there on holiday for many years and have eaten at this restaurant several times as we can generally get a table. This year though we wish we’d had taken our custom elsewhere as the...More
