“Rude staff”
Review of Bodega Del Sol

Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

For the last 10 years we’ve been going to this restaurant. The owner is delightful and the food is great, however when we went a few months ago we waited for more than 30 minutes to order and a further hour for our food. The waitress was far from friendly or apologetic. We put it down to an unusually busy evening... 3 months later we went back. The owner was not there. We were not only ignored on arrival by this same waitress, but treated as a positive inconvenience! She was rude & dismissive. When asked where she would prefer us to sit she indicated that it made no difference to her and thereafter she ignored us. No menus were brought, no drinks offered, no order taken. We left and went elsewhere. Such a shame that what was once a really wonderful restaurant should be tainted by such a rude member of staff. Had the owner been present, perhaps her attitude might have been moderated? She is certainly not an asset to this business in our opinion.

A short walk from our villa finds this little bar. Good food, nice beer, friendly staff and relaxing evening. What more could you ask for.

Having read the other reviews and being within easy walking distance we were looking forward to enjoying the paella. No problem with a table for the five of us and we were soon tucking in to our drinks and nibbles. The wait for our paella suggested encouragingly it was being made from scratch.
We found it very bland with no hint of garlic, paprika or other usual seasonings We struggled hard to find anything other than a few tiny bits of chicken with bone fragments and were surprised by the inclusion of sections of crabs’ legs. The display items of shell-on prawns and mussels were just about ok. Despite the debate about the authenticity of its inclusion, the presence of some chorizo would have been welcome.
Feeling less than full we opted for desserts and I must say the almond cake and creme caramel were outstanding. Maybe we hit the savoury side of the kitchen on a bad day.
We are great fans of family-run traditional restaurants. Sometimes a fun atmosphere and great service makes up for average food. Alternatively, had the paella been great, we could have overlooked the rather dated environment and the less than jolly service. On this showing the Bodega fails to earn the hearty recommendation we were looking forward to giving.

Stopped here for lunch after a morning on the beach at Mal Pas (Playa Son Pere). Hubby and I shared a mixed paella which was very tasty. Our 3 year enjoyed some chicken croquettes and our little 1 year old tucked in to a bit of everything! It all went down well and the outside seating area was attractive and spacious. (Parents will appreciate they have clean IKEA Antiplop highchairs, rather that one of those weird spanish wooden contraptions with no straps that do nothing to keep the child contained!!)
