Anywhere with a lunchtime menu del dia is usually a good bet. We particularly like La Roda, where a three course meal (with a choice of dishes) with a glass of wine or beer will only set you back something like 10E - they also have other dishes if nothing on the MDD appeals. El Posito is very good too. Our children (pre-teens) particularly like Nico's restaurant on the square - Tex Mex type food, but of good quality, and won't break the bank.

We have not tried any of the MDD deals though most look excellent value, though El Posito has been our most expensive evening meal bill so far this holiday of all the places we have visited.

Would have to say Cella Para. I always think alex is running it for charity. Also El meson is very good value.

You will get great value 3 course set menu at many restaurants for aprox 15€ per head or 32€ per head including wine or beer. The competition is fierce!
It would be hard to find this value in the UK or the quality of food. The trouble is when you're a family of 4 or more,to eat out every night for a fortnight is beyond most people's budget. When our children were young we would cook or BBQ at home, and eat out 3/4 times a week. It's hard to recommend places as peoples tastes are so varied, but if you look at previous reviews you should get a good idea.

I think Pollensafan meant Celler la Parra .

El Posito lunchtime MDD is 10€ for bread, olives, alioli and 3 courses including water and wine.

Ca'n Tofol do a lunchtime Dish Of the Day, including a drink desert and coffee for just €6.50.

Do follow this link Restaurants, Cafes, Bars in Puerto Pollensa (Port de Pollenca), Majorca Mallorca where you will find many others who offer specials both at lunchtime and evening .

I come out with teenagers and am on a budget. My top pick would be Ambrosia. Lovely food, good value and run by young people, so my girls think it's a cool place to eat too. Second fav would be La cabana, Tapas restaurant, again lovely food and very good value. Also not a favourite with everyone but we have tried one of the Chinese restaurants, food was good and they are very reasonably priced

depends on what kind of budget you call a budget ?

everyones budget can be different, personally I took a year off work when the bluebells were early teens and had 2 weeks in pp with very little on the hip so to speak, although had reserves if stuck tbh

we cooked breakfasts in the apartment, baguettes at lunch'ish and got takeaways and had self serve dinners in the evenings on the beach with a bottle of beer and pop for the weans

was probs the best hol I remember, but I am a bit tight :P

in all what I'm saying is pp has a budget to suit all

I think we all have memories of holidays on a budget. I agree with gers that the best times were had. We did similar to you re the food. One tip my gran taught me was to divide the budget you have by the number of days and that's what you spend. Some days were beach days with little spent and you could spend more the following day. I would say family time in PP beats anything hands down.

As anne10aber says - work out your budget and stick to it - if you have a bit left over from the previous day you can treat yourselves the next, but don't try to do it the other way round!

I also noticed that Hiper supermarket had filled baguettes for 1 euro 80
