Smile 2013 Trip - Restaurant Review

Had 2 weeks in PP from 11th to 25th May with our elderly parents. Whilst the weather wasn't great due to the distinct lack of sunshine we enjoyed our holiday and had some lovely meals during our stay.

The day we arrived we strolled along the pine walk and decided to have lunch at Little Italy. We were quite underwhelmed by the experience. My pasta dish was very bland and hubby's pizza 'average'. The service was quite slow and we thought it was on the pricy side. We wouldn't rush back.

Can Pescador - great meal. I ordered sea bass and got the whole fish on my plate!! It was delicious, father-in-law had the prawn and monkfish kebab which he said was very good indeed. Very friendly waiters and a good atmosphere with a lovely view of the sea from our table.

La Laguna - one street back from the pine walk just along from the Illa D'or hotel. We had never been here before but as it was just behind our apartment and it was a cold evening (no sun again) we decided to give it a try. What a gem of a place. The food is absolutely delicious and Miguel, the owner is a real character. My mother-in-law was considering having the lamb and asked if there was any mint sauce - Miguel said no but if she came back a few days later he promised he would have it for her. We all enjoyed our dinner and the desserts are to die for!! Needless to say we returned again a few days later and guess what - a jar of Colmans mint sauce was waiting for my mother-in-law - she was delighted!! There is also a lovely pool with loungers so we had an afternoon there sunning ourselves and enjoyed the drinks and nibbles. We will definitely be going back there on our next visit and would highly recommend it to all visitors.

The Sparrow - this is a hidden gem. In a quiet street behind the Pollensa Park hotel. We go here every time we visit and have never been disappointed. Pepe the owner is a fantastic chef and the food is delicious and tremendous value for money. It has a lovely garden area at the back after you go through the bar area. It suffers a bit from not being on the main street so spread the word people and keep this lovely little restaurant going strong!!

Hells Kitchen - tried this for the first time this year during a cold, rainy evening when we were looking for somewhere cosy. We enjoyed our prawn curry and the apple crumble was great. Good food and good value for money. The service was excellent too - the waitress had a lovely smile.

Hope the weather improves for visitors in June.

Thanks for taking the time to post Bradders - I'm sure many posters (belter52/ Mick in particular) will be delighted to read such a positive review of Miguels return to laguna/ bonanca

Thanks Bradders, a really useful review. Especially with regard to La Laguna, which we've been intending to visit for ages but somehow haven't got round to, for no good reason! Staying at Villa Singala it's been downright silly not to visit, we will put that right asap in July!

Default Great Report

Lovely reading your report and even better that it was of places we have never eaten in. Definitely " food for thought" for next week's wee holiday .



Cheers

It was quite easy to miss as it was included in the above thread titled 'Miguelon'

Just returned from our usual week at Whitsun. Got to agree with you Bradders - the return of "The Special One" to Laguna has breathed a whole new lease of life into the place. Always enjoyed it whilst Jacko was running it, but somehow it was missing that all important personality.

Miguel's back where he belongs - and long may he stay!
