I visited this restaurant a few years ago shortly after it opened, i was very impressed and have to say that i believe it to be one of the best restaurants on the Island taking into account the exellence of the cuisine, the superb service, the views from the beautiful terrace and last but not
least value for money. On my first visit i have to say the restaurant was quiet but host Pablo was attentive without being intrusive but a very welcoming and knowledgable Matre De Hotel, the menu has changed since my first visit and the choice, quality, and presentation of the cuisine has not only sustained it's consistancy but has even improved surpassing all expectation. Upon first glance the menu appears limited but does have a varied and interesting choice but is highly imaginative and well thought out, the mixed Tapas starter can only be described as sensational, it consisted of King Prawn and Quails egg on a savoury biscuit, Chicken and torritzo rolls, silver spoons consisting of Lobster chunks adorned with caviar, Mussels cooked in white wine toased with parmisan to name but a few, the platter for two was exellent value at 14 euros. 'Her indoors' chose the suckling pig which was slow cooked, shredded and then pressed into a piramid sitting on a base of mashed cream and leak potato beautifuly presented on a slate plate. I had the Confit of duck, the outer skin tasted slightly like chinese crispy duck but the meat was so tender and cooked to perfection, it was adorned with an irish 'Colcannon' and fresh veg of the day. Both main courses were very good value at 16 euros each. Pablo now struts his 'stuff' in his 'celebrity chef' whites and front of house now is the lovely Anna who is not only an exellent restaurant manager but a very clever and astute young lady with a pleasant and approachable manor and i believe she is the 'Pearl in Pablo's Oyster' and an exellent and invaluable asset to Placeres. The chef Cristian has a real tenacity for detail and his plates leave the kitchen like a work of art, i was quite 'tickled' at the amount of diners taking photographs of their dinners before eating them. I was too full to partake of the apple and sultana tart adorned with icecream and custard but the table next to us assured us that it was delicious. If you are staying anywhere in the south of the Island and enjoy eating out then this restaurant is unmissable, (even if your staying in the north its worth a trip down).
