After reading mixed reviews & being recommended by family we decided to try this for ourselves & were quite honestly disappointed. The staff seemed fed up & it didn't seem like they were listening. We ordered a selection of starters but the first thing to arrive were the 2 children's meals followed by our mains with our starters!! The food itself was nothing to shout about although I would say the children's homemade fish nuggets were great & the best meals on the table giving us all food envy. The location is the best thing & it would be lovely for a drink or snack but wouldn't recommend it as a place to go for an evening dinner.

I read about this place on Tripadvisor, and was looking forward to a pleasant lunch spot on the beach on arrival Port de Sóller. What a a terrible disappointment! Except for the the beautiful location, and the good working waiters, this is not a place to spend your money! The food was not fresh, the so called Gambas de Sóller looked like some of this frozen ones from Thailand. The so called grilled octopus was hardly grilled, they had a slight fast of burned wood, but were not warm. Maybe the cook was out for lunch, or did not show up this day?! The one ruling this day had no skills what so ever! Stay away!

The lady at the B&B we stayed at in Soller recommended this restaurant to us, and with good reason. It is at the end of the promenade along the beach in Port d' Soller, in fact you have to walk along the beach for a bit to get to it as it's tucked under the roadway. My husband doesn't even like seafood but I made him try some of the seafood dishes and they were all a hit! The prices are very reasonable compared to many in the location, you get to sit in the shade in the afternoons, and you have the best view of the Port in my opinion. It was much quieter than other restaurants we stopped at. I recommend the sangria (of course,) as well as stepping out of your comfort zone to try something new. The staff is very friendly as well and speak Spanish, English and German.

We read the reviews and headed to Es Reco for an evening meal, the location is good but that is about all that I can say good about the place. the food was very basic and not of a good standard.
It was rated number 3 in the town at the time we visited last week and in our opinion in does not deserve this position. The owner was friendly but lousy food.

Dear sir,

We would like to know what happened and what did you eat to improve in the future. In three year and 105 critics is the worse comments that we have had.. We keep our menu and trying to improve it every day. Actually we are very strained with your comment and we would like to know what really happened.

Thanks
