There's quite a few restaurants in the square and our biggest mistake was coming here. I had the ribs,it was served with no sauce the meat was hard and bubbling,like it had just came out of the microwave. 6 of us went and All of us will never go again.

During our week stay at Cala n Porter we visited this restaurant three times and all three times the food and service was second to none. I am quite particular about my steak and often send it back to be cooked properly but I never had to here, I had sirloin on two visits and both times they were equally... More

I visited here based on a review where someone mentioned that they were coeliac friendly. Unfortunately when we visited there was a limited menu as they were closing for the season but we were happy with the service and with the food. It wasn't loaded with grease like many other restaurants in the area, I'd definitely have visited again if... More

Again in August my friend and I visited Cala en Porter and had a few meals at Big Als Ranch. Each & every meal we had was thoroughly enjoyable, freshly cooked, tasty and served by friendly efficient staff. On one evening the restaurant was particularly busy however we were told this immediately upon arrival and given the option of waiting... More

After reading the review from Pauline T on and reading the owners response I thought his response was brilliant so decided to give it a try. Myself and my wife along with our 5month old son went on Wednesday and that's the first time my wife's ate steak and not complained about it she said it was delicious, I opted... More

We've been coming to the resort for many years and hadn't used this restaurant. This time we did twice as it was very good. The quality of food is excellent as was the service.

JIM S, Owner at Big Als, responded to this review

Hi Pauline T Reviews like this really annoy me, not because it criticises the restaurant but for the fact it is a one sided biased review. Firstly you and your partner were the worse for drink, to such a degree that the "waitress" almost refused to serve you . You received your meals in good time, however you complained your... More

Have been here a few times over the years and have never been disappointed. Would recommend sharing a starter as there's plenty to go around. The pie is lovely and comes with its own gravy boat for you to pour to taste. The staff can't do enough for you; nothing is too much trouble. Will definitely be visiting again next... More
