“Very pleasantly surprised.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

After a fabulous train journey to get to the port we wanted an extraordinary eating experience - and got it! We had heard good reports about the Lua and wanted a long,relaxed lunch, and it was perfect. We took a chance and opted for a table outside on the wonderful roof-terrace, the view is fantastic and is a real sun trap when the clouds part.
We decided to go for the four course lunch for 25 euros and we all enjoyed the "sampling" menu, the various fish dishes were superb especially the marinated sardines! The service was polite, friendly and attentive without being hurried. Although our spanish was rudimentary the very nice cuban waiter's english was more than adequate to describe everything on offer. At his suggestion we had a mixed selection of desserts which we all shared - some were just marvellous whilst others were gorgeous.
All in all it was a perfect if slightly expensive way to spend an afternoon in Port de Soller.

“Good food, splendid views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

This is a decent restaurant with great views over the pretty Port de Soller and its surrounding mountains. We had the four course menu degustacion which was reasonable value at 25 euros and generally very good except for the desserts which, as so often in Spain, were a disappointment. Service was prompt and friendly.

“Bad Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2011

Went with my girlfiend and another couple. Food was fine (though expensive too). At the time of paying, we were forced to pay the full 130€ with one single credit card instead of two (it was the restaurant policy not to split), what created a big problem. Asked to talk to the manager and he wasn't there, asked to fill a complaint and they said they couldn't find the form. Therefore, very bad service.

“A HIDDEN GEM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2011

Superb food well cooked and great views over Port Soller. Do not miss this place. So good we ate there 2 times. Their fish is delicious and imagine my surprise when ordering the filet steak that the plate arrived with TWO large steaks. Hardly enough room left for dessert. Good Mallorcan wine selection too and very reasonably priced. Noted in some other comments below that some have compained that the waitress "did not speak much English" what did they expect - they are in Spain !!!!

“By far the worst of the four restaurants we tried in Port Soller”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2011

We tried Lua based on the first 5 reviews on TA - the sixth had not appeared when we checked (we probably would have avoided it) - and were bitterly disappointed.

The waitress was slow, her English poor, and she forgot one of our drinks (but remembered to charge for it, even after we said it was too late when she did bring it).

There is a limited menu, mainly fish, of course, but one of the four meat dishes was not available, which meant if you did not like steak or fish it was tough.

Drinks were expensive - dearest beer in town - and the food, at best adequate.

Would not go back
