“As good as ever..............”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Ca'n Trompe is located in the busy and vibrant pedestrianised centre of Cala D'Or and is one of the few restaurants in the centre serving reasonably authentic Spanish / Mallorquin dishes. We first visited Trompe last year and thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and general ambience of the place, so decided to check it out again this year. The menu appears to be the same, and there was was plenty to choose from. A word of warning though, don't expect burgers etc, so check the menu thoroughly especially if you have children with you. Our two thirteen year olds voted Trompe their favourite place in Cala D'Or, and that from two lads who are usually very happy with pizza, ribs and a burger, so to me that's a good recommendation. The pork loin with tumbet (stir fried veg like peppers, onions and potato) was my wife's choice, whilst I tried a local specialty, the Frito Mallorquin which is thin strips of liver with veg and onions in a gravy. Thoroughly nice if rather filling.
Trompe isn't the cheapest place in the area, but it is far from the most expensive. I'd describe it as good value for the quality you get. Good local wine according to the wife, whilst the draught beer was cold but bland.
No Wi-fi though.

Fabulous paella, restored our faith in this dish ( see review of one served at another restaurant) the mixed paella was delicious, plentiful, flavoursome with top quality ingredients.
Our party also enjoyed the hake from the specials and the grilled sole. Standard childrens menu. We have eaten here every year we have visited Cala dor and the owner always makes it his business to greet us and offers complementary liqueurs at the end of the meal. A nice personal touch that is appreciated.
Will return

“Poor service”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

So disappointed with this restaurant on a recent 5 day break to Cala d'or.
Poor poor service: long wait for acknowledgement, menus & drinks order; starters were not cleared before waitress arrived & thrust our mains at us (we had to clear the starers ourselves to make room); chewy rabbit and salty vegetables for mains; overlooked by staff for 15 mins when we just wanted to settle the bill & leave.
When we complained about the service we were offered free liquers & had to persist hard with the waiter for the bill as we just wanted to leave.
Very very diappointed with the food quality & chaotic staffing. I hope it was a one-off on the night but we certainly would not go back & risk it.

My husband chose this restaurant as we fancied some proper local food. We were really disappointed. We had the most tasteless thin Ali oli with stale bread followed by muscles half of which were closed and so inedible. I had stuffed courgette which was a tiny portion with undercooked fried potatoes and my husband had a really fatty portion of suckling pig. The meal was massively overpriced and to top it all we waited nearly half an hour for the bill despite the restaurant not being that busy. Disappointing.
