Description: The restaurant is situated in the well known Menestralia building, and is distinguished by its famous 52m high landmark tower that can be seen from the motorway. The building, constructed in 1962, is of a gothic style. It was built to create a centre for local craftsmen and artists. Currently there is a traditional glass factory that can be accessed from the restaurant. As well as visiting the shop and exhibition, you can watch the craftsmen in the factory making the glass. Español El restaurante se encuentra integrado en el edificio del conocido castillo de Menestralia, el cual destaca por su torre de 52 metros de altitud que se puede ver desde la autopista Palma - Sa Pobla. El edificio es de estilo neogótico y fue construido en el año 1962 con el objetivo de convertirse en un punto de reunión y encuentro de artesanos y artistas. Actualmente hay una fábrica de artesanos del vidrio, a la que se puede acceder desde nuestro local, visitar la tienda de exposición y el horno donde se lleva a cabo el proceso de creación del vidrio.

“You gotta go !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

Fantastic food. So much to choose from and a free bottle of wine or unlimited fill ups for soft drinks. It was full of locals when we went which i think is always a good indication of a place.
It looks great from the outside and is very clean and spacious. This is top of my places to go in Majorca and was the best place we found to eat as a lot of them on here we found pretty pricey if you have a family to feed and this will fill them for lunch and dinner all in one!

“You cannot go wrong.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2011

A lunch costs 9.00€ for a buffet lunch including wine and water. A vast selection of soups, salads, main courses and puddings. Have as many courses as you choose, have seconds or thirds if you want. Serve yourself to beer or soft drinks if you wish.



All in pleasant surroundings.

“Fantastic and cheap buffet in outskirts of Campanet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2011

Restaurant Menestralia provides a full eat-as-much-as-you-can buffet (soups, salads, veg, fish, meat, pasta, desserts, beverages) for an amazing price. How do they do it?. I have no idea, but it's well worth the visit. There are enough parking spaces in front of the restaurant, which is just next door to the glass factory (I believe that there is a shop there too, where you can buy traditional Majorcan blown glass). Coffee is extra.

I've been a few times at lunchtime on weekdays, and the buffet costs just 9 Euros then. It costs more on Saturdays, and again there is another price on Sundays and bank holidays. I usually have green salad + russian salad, followed by veggies and vegetable lasagne. The roast potatoes are nice too, usually done with garlic and rosemary. Here you can try traditional Majorcan food, such as frito and sopes mallorquines (so it's an ideal place to try traditional food, and go back to get some more if you like it). You will probably also find paella or fideuà on the menu. Don't miss the granizado de almendra on the dessert table, it's an almond slush that you pour and drink from a glass. Delicious. The cheese cake is nice too. You just help yourself to the beer and the soft drinks, you will find wine / lemonade / water on your table.

The buffet (at least at lunchtime) is always very similar, so I guess that it can feel same-y if you go often.

Try to avoid going for a late lunch, as the restaurant can become very, very busy. The buffet at lunch time opens from 13.00 until 16.00 hrs.

On their website (just search for Restaurante Menestralia) it says that you can 'phone to reserve a table. I think that this could be necessary if you are a large group.
