This was simply the best Spanish restaurant we found in Artá. A cheap/fast tapas restaurant you can find in any other corner. But when you go to Ca Nostra it should be to enjoy the excellent and authentic food from Mallorca and Spain. And after walking along the main pedestrian street "Carrer de Ciutat", where you find several international restaurants (from Italy, France, and Germany) run and served by the corresponding international staff, arriving at Ca Nostra felt like finding a lost treasure in that little old town.

The food you can taste in Ca Nostra is definitively worth the price you pay for it. We tried the baked goat cheese as a starter and we received from the house a very generous portion of spanish bread with the traditional deeping garlic creme, several olives, fresh tomatoes, and more, as well as a present from the house consisting of a portion of a pastry filled with vegetables and pork meat.

As a main dish we asked for the "Paella ciega mixta" for two people. "Ciega" means that it comes with all the shripms and shell fishes already cleaned and ready to eat. It is supposed to have chicken and other red meats, but we wanted to rest a bit from those and asked to exchange them for more sea food and fish instead. They didn't have any problem with the change we asked, and the paella came with a very generous amount of shrimps, calamari and mussels, that we struggle to finish because it was a lot for just two persons. But we took our time and we gladly managed to finish it all because it was delicious!!

We were there in the evening of Saturday 13th of April, and we were lucky since there was only one table busy when we arrived, and all the customers that were already there, and those who arrived later, were all local Spanish people. So we enjoyed a very nice and authentic Spanish atmosphere. This is a restaurant you should definitively have to try, if you are willing to go a bit above the budget and to enjoy an authentic and very well prepared and presented Spanish meal.

The restaurant looks inviting from outside. We looked at the menu and some of the dishes were expensive. It does say "grill", but not many grilled choices. The 'tapas' choice was limited and expensive. They seem to have the same menu as everywhere else.

We decided to go and risk it given the #1 rating. It was busy, lot of tourists (mainly Germans).

We ordered a selections of dishes. The food was 'okay'. For instance, the Patatas Brava, looked like cut pieces of fried potaes with ketchup and mayo sauce on the top. The other dishes were "okay", but nothing special.

The restaurant is on the round about, just opposite the police station.

Having read Jeremy C's review and the restaurant's response, I took the precaution of booking a table for a birthday celebration during a recent holiday in Mallorca. I sent an e-mail from the UK using the Google translating service as I speak very little Spanish unfortunately, and received a very prompt reply. We received a very warm welcome from Miguel and enjoyed a very good meal. It isn't fine dining but the food is plentiful and tasty and is, along with the wine selection, very reasonably priced. I thoroughly enjoyed my birthday dinner in the company of my partner and my daughter and give Ca Nostra the "thumbs up".

my girlfriend and i sat there waiting for 20 seconds!! and were already welcomed by a very nice waiter. we came for lunch and the variety of tempting dishes was so immense that we could eat there twice a dayduring 2 weeks. we had some delicious tapas and perfectly prepared lambshoulder (enough for three) and beef with foie gras...Jeremy C, you really missed something by being so impatient.

My wife and i sat there wating to be served for 20 minutes. Saw other tables being served although they arrived later. In the end i waved down the waiter because i was thirsty. He nodded to me, but never came because a guy in an other table intercepted him for a beer. At that point we agreed it was time to leave.

Dear customer

"”” little patience” ""

This is not Milan or big city this is a very quiet village of Mallorca where
people come to relax.

First they sat at a table without asking. First mistake,,,,,,,,,, please do not foget,,,
Clearly, first serve tables with reservation, of course,

I made the pleasure of the table without a reservation;

I asked if he wanted a drink when I gave the food menu cards and told me he was not ready,,,,,,,,,, please do not forget,,,,,,,,,,,,

And then of course with full restaurant still working;

And surprisingly got up and left the table.

Doing the show, guests were asking me what country and education have little patience and these customers.

I'm glad not to have served, because after receiving your comment, certainly would have complained about everything,

I hope it's smart to remove this comment and other comments to make in future be more objective and sincere please,

My team works very hard to make good comments but even you ate nothing and drunk nothing but put bad comment "" "" as possible "" "

I invite you to come back with more patience and try my dishes sure changes his mind about us

This is the true story of what happened,
Sincerely

Miguel Angel
