“Passed through several times...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

While staying in Cala Egos, I went on a daily run into Porto Petro, and explored a fair bit of it on foot. It's definitely one step further away from 'resort', and one closer to 'traditional fishing village'. It's a beautiful wee place, very picturesque - all Spanish green shutters and wee sailing boats. There are a few restaurants down on the harbour, which if we had been sans kids I'd definitely have dragged Mrs W along to, as they looked like proper 'local' restaurants as opposed to tourist traps. The 'main street' if you can call it that has a supermarket and a few small shops, and overall, it's a quiet, peaceful place far from the maddening crowds.

“Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Porto Petro is a gem of a place far from the maddening crowds. If you like small quiet resorts and just a handful of decent restaurants then this is the place for you.

“Excellent Paella and very good Steaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

We were 4 people for lunch. 2 had Lobster Paella (Euro 19 each) and 2 had the Steaks (also Euro 19 each). It was all superb, probably the best Paella ever. The Steaks were very tender and cooked as requested. The local bottle of recommended red was very good. One Local and one Italian Lady were serving us, both were very friendly and professional and always with a smile. Desserts were an almond cake with almond ice cream...delicious.
We were having the meal on the terrace in the back, where for Dec 22nd, we enjoyed the sun, the excellent meal and the pleasant service. Highly recommended!
