On a day visit to the town we saw that this cafe did pizza which is just what we were looking for. Pizza was excellent and cappuccinos were the best ever. We received attentive service from the waiter and we enjoyed the little biscuits and chocolates we were treated to with our coffee. We loved it here, it was a fun and friendly experience and very good value for money too. It is a family affair and they clearly enjoy looking after their customers. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Jumped on a bus from Playa Blanca to Arricife and after a couple of hours walking around we decide to stop for a bite to eat. How we stumbled across El Principe I will never know, but so very, very pleased that we did. We chose 4 tapas: meatballs, fish croquettes, ham/potato croquettes and Spanish omelette (basket of bread for free!). This was washed down with 3 glasses of red wine and 2 cortados (coffee) and we never ate again all day. The quality was fabulous, service most acceptable and all for 23€ - bargain or what? Oh, and we should say many thanks to the delightful lady behind the scenes who provided us with such wonderful fare. Do not miss this place if you visit the town. Oh, I nearly forgot to mention the free wifi - added bonus!

After passing several restaurants with menus in 3 languages we stumbled upon this place on a corner in the square by the church. You know you are in a real Italian restaurant when you are greeted by a computer showing a live Italian football match (Milan v Palma, I seem to remember), so upmarket this is not. Simple tables inside (they have a terrace as well) and an equally simple (and inexpensive) menu. Friendly waiter, who gave us such a generous tapas with our beer that we decided to stay and eat: pizza 4 stagioni and spaghetti pesto, both of which were excellent, washed down with a bottle of El Grifo local wine. I don't normally bother with writing restaurant reviews, but we enjoyed our simple meal here so much and, when the waiter gave us change consisting only of euro notes, making a tip impossible (as we had no coins), I thought the least I can do is write a TA review for them: they definitely deserve it.
