Description: Opened in 2011 by Bernat and Pilar, a couple who have had a tapas bar well known for the past 25 years. The new location is spacious and comfortable, with a wonderful terrace on the square, while the tapas are as always, well known in the village. Ask anyone on where to have the best tapas in Pollenca, and let yourself be guided.

“Another excellent experience”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We went back to Cafe Placa this month following our excellent experience earlier in the year and nice note from Antoni following my last review. It was as good as last time, so much in fact that I went for lunch two days in a row. :) we had torilla and salads one day and then the traditional Pa Amb Oli the next and it was all lovely. Excellent coffee. We will be back to try the cakes next time!

“Cafe Placa, the best place to enjoy a coffee in Plaça Major in Pollença.”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

We spent a week in Pollença and finished every evening in Caffè Placa for a night cap. Friendly and attentive service and best of all great coffee and tea (proper tea brewed in a teapot with tea leaves!) All the waiters were excellent, but a gold star has to go to Antoni, he was on duty every night and gave excellent service and exceeded all our expectations.

“Why, they have wifi.”
Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

We liked the Placa and popped in several times for coffees, beer, wine, tapas a Russian salad and a burger. The staff were always helpful and it was good to be able to connect to the Internet in order to check the Majorcan weather forecast, which was for rain. Cold, biting rain. Waiter! More wine please.

“Great value and good service.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Set on the main square, Cafe Place seems to be overshadowed by it's highly popular neighbour Cafe Espanol; but the food is just as good, if not better. (The chairs and tables for four different bars are laid out next to each other, so make sure you look for the differences in the chairs laid out; we saw many people come and look at Cafe Placa's menu and then sit in another bar's seats, only to be surprised when they were offered that bar's menu.)

The food is lovely and simple; we normally have a couple of tapas dishes with the house white. We like the grilled squid and the salt cod bites, and all dishes are available in small, medium and large portions which we found great to be able to mix and match. Great value and good service.

Antoni M, Gerente at Placa Restaurante, responded to this review, March 25, 2013
Thanks a lot for your opinion, and of course for the advice.
Truly, the Plaza Mayor is a very popular place, and because of that there's many restaurants (some of them really good), with tables and chairs in the square. So people have to take care where they sit if they do not want to be served by a not chosen restaurant.
Anyhow, we'll try to identify better our tables, in order fo make it easy for people who want to try our wellknown tapas
Thanks again, we hope to see you soon.
