“What a turnaround!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

This used to be one or regular restaurants but, in the past few years, it had started to become a bit stale and had lost its zing.
Last night we went for a meal with our visitors and.... what a turnaround. A warm friendly welcome, the waiters had a spring in their step, the menu had been revamped, the sangria was perfect, the dates and bacon were award winning and the baby lamb was yummy. Meson Son Caliu has got it's zing back! We will return regularly.

“Typically Spanish”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

This is our 10th year to the island and have always visited this restaurant and never been disappointed. Superb food from paella to fresh fish, lamb and steaks. Great service with friendly long term staff.

“Great value for great food”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Just celebrated my neice's birthday. The waiters go out of their way to oblige, we were even allowed to take our own birthday cake. The food is excellent for what you pay. You would have to go a long way to find better.

“Not up to expectations”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We have been to this restaurant before, but this time not so good. We went to have their lovely
lamb shoulders, but they had sold out (9 O'clock saturday). First disappointment, then we had
frito mallorquin (husband teachers spanish cooking) this in his opinion wasn't anything like frito
should be. Ok so its not a 4 star restaurant but waiters leaning across one to place the plates on the person sitting next to you, just isnt done (especially when it wasnt necessary). Thats one of the first things taught for waiters. The food average, nothing special at all needs to get back that
special atmosphere not just that of a fast restaurant. with average to below average food.

“All round Excellent”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Mum & I had a Superb meal yesterday lunchtime - The Menu del Dia was an amazing 9.50 Euros - Starter wonderful homemade Soup, Mains Pork Loin in a mushroom sauce with fresh cut chips - Desert I had Lemon Sorbet and Mum had fresh Melon washed down with a nice bottle of Rose Wine. Fresh bread and Olives accompanied the meal. Lovely Alfresco dining and impeccable service. Its a must. They have a la carte also. Definately worth a try. We are going to go back today :-)
