We visited L'Escrivania several times during our recent 2 week holiday in Porreres. Menu de dia is generally very good with 3 courses, bread, olives, water, beer or wine for 12€. The menu changes weekly and is always attractively presented. Occasionally there is confusion in the menu translation and we haven't been served quite what we were expecting, but it... More

Interesting building in a sleepy town square. Delicious roast pork, lamb chops a little tough but a warm welcome and a large First Communion family party to watch. A happy Sunday lunch. Prices were on the high side, but fair and the portions were generous.

This is our favourite place to eat in Porreres, and the lunchtime Menu del Dia is great. At 12€ for 3 courses plus beer/wine, water, bread and alioli it offers great value and still delivers good ingredients with beautifully presented food. On our recent early spring visit it wasn't always easy to get a table as it is so popular... More

We are now back for our autumn stay outside Porreres and again at our favourite restaurant in town. Will it still be friendly, still be cosy and still serve excellent food for lunch all at a reasonable price? We answer is still YES! I had a salad and then chicken followed by a sturdy chocolate dessert. All tasty and well... More

While cycling in Mallorca I have often stopped here for coffee or lunch. Service is always good as is the food and coffee. Every time i am on the island I always make sure I stop here at least once.

We have been several times there for dining and enjoyed the excellent food. However we recently tried the cheap set lunch menu which was a straight disappointment, quite understandable if you consider the price, including wine: 11 Euro. This however does not affect the quality of this restaurant that serves excellent food for dinner!

Having read the reviews we wanted to check this restaurant out and it did not disappoint. We shared mussels cooked with a cheese sauce to start, yummy, then moved on to steak - mouth watering - and hubby had lamb ribs, also fab. Service relaxed but very friendly. With wine the bill came to €54 It was exactly as we... More
