Re. the posting by Zaccolbert above and the list of "useful phrases" at the bottom of the list of restuarants.
Now I did a little bit of night school Spanish a few years ago, but I am definately NOT a linguist! I, along with a few others, found it somewhat difficult but did persevere and it was worth it for the little I do remember - it comes back even more after a few cervezas!
The list of phrases reminded me of the perrenial question, 'Is it SER or is it ESTAR' they are both forms of the verb TO BE.
I understand that SER tells you what something is, ESTAR tells you what something does. Also, SER refers to a permanent condition, ESTAR refers to a temporary condition.
Always a complicated one to me and this/these are just the basics you learn for starters. How have you got on with your Spanish Sparky, any good tips?
And do you tend to use/pick up Spanish, Mallorquian or Catalan - or all three?
Makes you realise why a lot of people just stick to English, but I think it is appreciated if you try a bit of the local language now and again.

I studied Spanish GCSE a few years ago and have forgotten most of it and always determine to brush up before coming , but somehow never get round to it! The Ser and Estar verbs will alwyas cause confusion! From what I remember, you use estar when you are describing how you feel such as 'estoy cansada' or 'soy italiana' But there are so many variations, I think you would only get to know them 'intimately' if you spent a lot of time speaking Spanish.

But I think on this basis I think it shoud really be 'somos vegetarianos' but I couild be wrong!

But whatever, who cares, as long as we can make ourselves understood and the food is good.

Now where is that Spanish course so that I can get practising before next month

As you say dosnt really matter, as long as you get the veggie bit right, a lot more places are seeing the light and marking things with a v now, very useful.
I think soy is for a permanent state like soy English, I think being veggie is more of a feeling so may be estoy, any Spainish people out there with the answer.
Btw keep sending me names of places serving veggie dishes not spreading on the list

Bellavista now opening and also taking part in La Ruta Del Tapeo Pollensa so a good reason to try it out and see for yourself the fantastic food they serve.

I will mention the Eu Centro in the old town again,

We went twice last week, the Tumbet and the vegetable paella are perfect
The tumbet is in the 'salads' section of the menu which is slightly confusing.
---
Also a vote for the Hotel Miramar in the port (it is on the list already)
The vegetable lasagne at the Miramar is the best I have ever tried and I could almost be converted to vegetarian
