“Food or service?”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We had lunch in El Pescador which looks directly onto the beautiful little harbour in Fornells. We waited a long time for attention and then had to ask for the menu of the day as it wasn't immediately offered. Service continued to be slow and we were rather taken aback at having to order all of the courses at the same time, but the food was very good with a wide choice for each course. We've given the restaurant a good rating because we were quite happy to sit between courses and enjoy the surroundings while appreciating the quality and value of the food.

“Two very different experiences ?!?!?”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We stopped late one evening had pizzas and drinks and were pleased with the service and food. We thought we would return and have breakfast (having had a pleasant eating experience), however everything was completly different on our second trip. We were ignored by a waiter who was only keen in laying settings on his dozens of tables. We sat chatting , had a cigarette, and still ignored by then a second gentleman !!!!!!! We got up, went next door to Chaplins and had a huge gorgeous fry up for 5 euro....... needless to say we didnt bother anymore with this restaurant for the rest of our holiday.

“Good so far as it goes”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We had the set menu for lunch that was only 10 Euros each and for that price the three course meal was very good value. We had to ask for the daily menu and give our choice for all three courses in one order. The service was not brilliant and of the four restaurants we ate in during the week we stayed, it ranked the lowest. However the food was very good and there was a wide choice even on this, the cheapest daily menu. The reason we chose this restaurant was that it was busy with apparently local or at least spanish diners. I would particularly recommend the hake main course and profieroles dessert.

“Slightly better than Average...”
Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

The welcome was lukewarm. Out of our party of four, half our courses were good and the other half average. Apparently the sardines were exceptionally good. Overall, an ok dining experience.
