Talking A wonderful week.

Hi all p.p. lovers

My husband David and I and two friends were out a couple of weeks ago and had a wonderful week, especially nice was the dining out each night which we don't do on every visit, but decided to treat ourselves this time and of course its so much easier when you have friends staying.

Here goes. First evening. Tango. We were made very welcome by the patron and although very busy and no window seats available, we were happy bunnies. We all had the very excellent menu of the day. Veg soup, tuna and prawn cocktail and a spaghetti bol. Mains were 1/2 chicken which was very tender, David had the Steak which he said was just right, guests had port fillets and suckling pig. Our female friend was oozing compliments over the suckling pig, so must try that next time. E17.50 p.p. very good value and excellent.

Next day found us at Maxims in the square, not a good seat and staff a little rushed. We all had set menu and the bill with 2 bottles wine came to 83 Euros.

Friday. Cella parra, we have always called it the three barrels, but always a good visit. Three of us had an excellent Frito Mallorcan , then for me, stuffed Aubergine. Can't always get this, so was looking forward to it and it didn't disappoint. one had roast veal and 2 had kidneys. 3 bottles of house red, which just about blows your socks off ! and house white. All in all a very good and great value meal for 76 Euros including a tip. Greatly appreciated by our friends who can't wait to come back.

Saturday evening at Restaurant Stay. Six of us this time, all having the menu. It is always good value and good quality. The views are wonderful just as the sun is setting. The menu of the day is now 34.90 Euros.

Sunday. We tried this restaurant in the old town on our last visit before the gardens were open, and liked it, so this was the venue for tonight.
It was full, except for our table and we had yet another excellent meal. The staff are particularly helpful and friendly. My shoulder of lamb just fell off the bone, delis. 2 huge pizza's and 1 had the calves liver. 2 bottles of house wine and bottled water, bill came to 89 Euros. Very satisfied all round.

You will note that we didn't have puds or coffee at any of the above places. We tend to move on to somewhere else for coffee and a brandy for David's chest (he says its really more medicinal than to enjoy !!! ) We ended up at the Illa D'or on a couple of occasions and also went to the wonderful Llannaire Hotel, another place to die for if its views of the distant bay that you like. Our friends liked the place so much, and are quietly looking at a venu for their wedding, it stuck them as ideal. (watch this space)

I hope I haven't gone on too long, but as you can see we had a great time.

Thanks for taking the time to post your excellent review.
What's the name of the restaurant in the old town? Did you book a table?

Next time you're out - I can recommend the mallorcan brandy Suau (for medicinal reasons obviously ...).

Yes, I thought it had to be Trencadora, but got confused when "...before the gardens were open" was mentioned. To my knowledge the garden's (courtyard) has been there for years. The mystery continues! As Brucey would say, "good game, good game"!!

Default restaurant in the old town

Hi all

Yes, I meant to tell you the restaurant in the old town is Trencadora. When I referred to the gardens being open, I was meaning that the last and first time we visited, it was April (I think) we sat inside, which I have to say was also very pleasant. Hope that clears things up. Enjoy.

Trencadora is lovely - something for everyone - thanks for the review, Diver Val! I'm only sad that we won't be back until October...
