Excellent value restaurant in a lovely position in main square. Can't comment on rest of menu as we all had pizzas which were really good. Had one of the best desserts of our stay, the chocolate and mascarpone mousse. Service was excellent and would definitely C'an Olessa

The Can Olesa is a very reliable Pizzaria in a good position in the main square in the charming old town of Pollensa. It offers the usual range of Pizza's and Pasta. Some excellent fish is also available much to my wife's delight. The sea bass was prepared to perfection.
So everyone would expect Can Olesa to be what it is-- a typical provider of good Italian food.
However a careful study of the wine list shows several unusual red wines are available.
Now, not everyone will want to experiment like I do and some will find the prices rather too much.
But... the wines from Toro, Navarra and Catalonia are seriously good and very ready to drink.
They turn a humble pizza into something on a different plane. Could be a 'last evening' indulgence!! Worth a try.

I stopped in Pollenca for lunch - and I must say that out of all the restaurants on the Plaza Major, this seemed to be the nicest. I started with a fantastic meatballs (albondigas) appetizer - followed by a local dish called "Tumbet". Tumbet is a traditional vegetarian side dish is from the island of Mallorca. It is a mix of eggplants, potatoes, zucchini, garlic and tomato sauce - and in this case, accompanied with pork on top of the entree. Overall, a very relaxing and satisfying lunch!

Great venue - good mix of food on the menu; from meat / fish and their huge selection of pizzas - something to suit everyone! Previously been and it was hard to get a table in the height of summer - now they have an online booking system and we had a confirmation within a few hours of emailing. Table ready for us at the allotted time. Friendly service and a lovely setting.

Went back two years after our first visit to Pollenca, and the food was just as good, the service just as friendly, and the view over the coming and going in the square just as interesting.

Recommended for a full meal, snack, or just a coffee and lazy hour.
