Unfortunately you will all have to wait until next summer to try the SUPERB food from this restaurant also known locally as 'The Secret Garden' and 'The Parrot Head', (although the hostel remains open). Iain, the chef, previously had a restaurant in Thailand and returns there every winter. He brought his secrets back to Mallorca with him, along with authentic ingredients, to create the most tantalising Asian food you will ever eat! Along with Indian curries, Chinese spare ribs, Mexican chili/nachos (Katie, the 'executive chef's' speciality) and a host of other dishes, all served in typical style, I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Set in a pretty terrace with water features and abundant flowers it really is like stepping into another world. The restaurant never advertises and it's popularity spreads purely by word of mouth, so excuse me for being the first to announce it to the world! (I know this sounds like and advert but I am truly an authentic reviewer!). The hostel itself is excellent value and the hosts, Helmut and Anna Maie are extremely friendly, especially as they speak five or more languages between them! Roll on next summer!

This is classed as a hostel, but it is family run and far more friendly than an hotel. Anmaia is pedantic and everything is super clean, although not luxuary - a lovely family environment with a more faboulous restaurant run by Ian and Katie. It is suburban, which is lovely being in the middle of a residential zone as opposed to being in a town. The rooms are clean and simple and the prices relative to what you get. The cherry on the top is the "canteen" which is run by a couple who have travelled - and I must say a very varied menu - Thai, Indian, Spanish... they do a great job with the food - served in a garden - at very reasonable prices - the food is tasty and authentic - have been there many a time to eat and have put friends in the hostal - Go there to enjoy and don´t be in a hurry !! An Oasis in Portals Nous with good food !!
