We had lunch at this restaurant with some Italian friends. The food was fresh, tasty and well cooked. We were recommended some white wine, which was local and amazingly good and not expensive. A definite recommendation.

Nicely placed just above the harbour. Staff attentive food ok and good service. No complaints. Don't know if we'd go back but maybe as the food was well cooked.

Chosen, ahead of its neighbours, due to a 'menu del dia' that showed a strong fish bias, also an interest in cooking. A la carte sized portion of fish soup, crammed with prawns, clams, mussels & white fish, defeated my healthy appetite. Glad I left room for delicate sardinas, of a freshness we seldom enjoy in UK. A pleasant situation,... More

Fab lunch overlooking the port. Buzzing but away from the big main tourist restaurants along the esplanade. Service was the best. Will be back for the paella!

Had both a Paella and a local Scorpion fish here - both meals very good and inexpensive. If you like fish its a great place to go

This restaurant has a great location overlooking the marina its in the shade from around 7pm so nice of you want to eat out of the sunshine. Large choice of menu and we had chicken in orange sauce which was nice and fillet of fish with seafood sauce which was ok. Wouldn't rush back unless it was for drinks.

While looking for a place for lunch we walked along the marina, went into two places but the staff was not service-minded at all so we left and walked off the marina, took a small road away from the crowded marina and found this cute and friendly place. Nice service, polite staff and excellent baby squids and boquerones with a... More

Based slightly up the hill from El Pirata, El Balear is a more simple take on spanish food. The menu was smaller but well put together and the wine list was reasonable. The actual restaurant part is quite small, but they found us a table for 6 and were very friendly, charming and polite. The food quality was great, with... More

My husband and his friend had the fish of the day and when the bill came they were charged 94 euros for the two portions of fish. Felt we were really taken advantage of and our... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge in our hotel when I asked him to recommend a restaurant in Soller or the port, as we wanted the freshest fish simply cooked!! We were not disappointed. The fresh fish of the day were brought around to the table on a big platter and explained what they were and how they were... More
