The place is nice and cosy, especially the patio has a nice atmosphere in the evenings. Food is good, however not best in class. Like other mallorquin restaurants a bit pricy though.

If you want to ruin your evening, you are welcome to visit this place. We have waited 10 min. for the table, while there were plenty of free ones. Then it took the waiter 15 to take an order. We we so displeased with the attitude that left without food, but aperol spritz was disgusting.

Ate at Es Moli with a group of friends. A few of us visited last year and really enjoyed our meal so made sure to book a table for our trip this September.

The friends who hadn't been before were very impressed and we were sat just to the left of the fountain. The patio area is so pretty and there is a great atmosphere at night. We ordered lots of tapas, the favorites being the Gambas con oil (prawns in garlic oil) and the stripes of beef fillet in pepper sauce. All were amazing and perfectly cooked with nice attention to detail.
The puddings were also just as good and we came away feeling very full and satisfied.

Staff are great and our waitress on that night was really attentive and helpful.
Will definitely be visiting next year!

One of the disadvantages of Trip Advisor is that restaurant gems get discovered and their popularity soars - but in some cases restaurant owners get complacent and the food and service suffer. Whether that's the case with Es Moli isn't clear, but based on these mostly gushing reviews and inviting photographs of the food we thought it would be worth a try. Sadly this seems to be one of many thinly disguised tourist traps in the lovely village of Santanyi. The garden we were seated in was charming but we were really there to enjoy quality tapas ... sadly it wasn't to be. Rubbery prawns swimming in oil, lifeless boquerones .... and that's before the chipped plates and stale, supermarket bread. Honestly, if you're going to charge 11 euros for a small dish of gambas, make them plump, sweet and juicy. The last dish of goats cheese soufflé was small, expensive and uninspiring which fairly much summed up our experience. Maybe this is regarded as high quality dining by the tourists and locals alike but we have enjoyed far better quality tapas in London for the same money. We were left feeling Es Moli are pushing their luck in terms of quality and value when it comes to the food - at least the night we visitied.

This a tapas restaurant but is very stylish.
I had no idea what to expect when I booked it and had done so because of its rating on Trip Advisor. The staff were delightful and guided us through what was on offer. We were also advised by a most charming young couple from Germany who were sitting at a table next to us.
Basically, the "small" portions are adequate for most people and 2 portions per person should be enough for all appetites! However, if it's not, order something else.
The setting in the courtyard at the back is most impressive and lends to a very enjoyable dining experience.
Unless you're close by, a taxi or car is required to get there.
Well worth the journey to get there.
