“Where were the fillings”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

I wish my memory was better. Saw reviews on this place a while back but clean forgot about them until I was eating there and saw name of place on back of seats and something clicked and I thought have I seen the name of this place before. We went on visit to Caves of Drac and popped in for quick snack. There were four of us and we all had a small item like a burger or toasted sandwich plus a soft drink or cup of tea. When the stuff arrived it was a case of where is the stuff that should be inside. My wife had a bacon toasted sandwich and there were 2 bits of streaky bacon in it and they were tiny and the others weren't much better. Didn't take any notice of prices as it looked ok and there were a few others in there so thought it would be fine. For those few things it cost just over 50 Euros. I wouldn't waste my money there again as there are a number of decent places around there at half the price. What a rip off place the only good thing was the view.

“Most expensive beer in majorca”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2011

Ripped 5.5 euros for a glass of Spanish beer.
Visit the 4 star hotel next door and pay 2 euros less.

“Complete rip off”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2011

Wish I had read the comments posted here before going to Porto Cristo, but there you go. On a day trip to the Caves, went down to the port for something to eat. Nice view along the esplanade, so were expecting to pay a premium. Sat down and looked through the menu, 9 Euros for a plain pizza margherita, and no price list for drinks.
We ordered a couple of cokes and when the bill came they were 4.80 Euros each. That was too much for my partner, who went looking for the manager. She spoke to an English guy she believed was the manager and asked him why he didnt put a price list out for drinks, to which he responded "Because we are not obliged to"
When asked how he could justify the prices for the coke he replied "Because we are not charging 10", which kind of says it all.
Okay, so we could have asked for the prices beforehand and made our excuses and left, which was our mistake. Here's hoping you dont make the same one. Make sure you check the prices beforehand whenever you can, and be prepared to take a walk and find somewhere better priced that is more friendly and amenable.
Here's hoping enough people take note and the owners change their attitude - there is plenty of competition out there and times are tight. Hit them where it hurts, in their pocket, and maybe they will change their practise. Consumer power, people.

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

lovely view so expecting to pay a premium, but the food was dismal even by British standards. 18 euros for calamares that were at best average - in a fishing village of all places! No napkins on tables, one ice cube in drink, tiny things but in Spain you are used to better. Wish if read the reviews before we sat down here.

“Complete rip off!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2011

Cheese omelette is a couple of eggs, handful of cheese and maybe a drop of milk?? Some how that was 9.60EUR.

Chips....4.95EUR

Large beer, San Miguel.....very cold, very nice.......er, 6.80EUR

Small bottle of water, very cold.....3.80EUR

Pizzas....12.40 for ham, 11.80 for salami......standard plate size

Cheese and ham toastie.....6.10EUR, for two slices of bread a bit of ham and some cheese.....maybe the electricity to toast it was expensive!

Our party of four adults and two kids had pizzas, toasties, omelettes, beer, coffee and water and the bill came to 112EUR.

I was hoping for a nice day out in Portocristo, but it was ruined! Similar snack lunches cost less than half of what we were billed for here!!

Plastic tables and chairs are soon to be gold-plated!
