Default Trip report June/July 2015 Part 1

We have recently returned from another wonderful holiday in PP. For the first time in all the years visiting PP there was only the 2 of us, usually there is between 4 and 6 in our group, so would we be like Darby and Joan?! The highlight of our holiday is visiting restaurants and catching up with old friends, (though no O’Lume this year!). Although only 2 of us we still found it advisable to book restaurants in advance to avoid any disappointment. It’s always worth seeking out local Pollenca/Mallorcan wines – these are delicious and for us add a special touch to our meal.

Day 1: Nico’s – This was traditionally always a first evening favourite with our kids and so we decided to continue the tradition. A warm welcome received from Marcos, Franco and the team. We shared Spicy chicken wings to start and then both of us each had a Utah sirloin steak. (For those who like a steak I would recommend this) Dessert was 1 apple crumble and ice cream. This was all washed down with a large beer, sparkling water and a bottle of El Elemental (Pollenca) tinto. The restaurant was busy, inside and outside, with a good atmosphere. A great start to the holiday!

Day 2: El Posito – One of our favourites and well worth a visit. Another lovely welcome from Tony, Chris and Miguel. The quality of the food and cooking has always been high and this has continued. Starters were El Posito salad (anchovies) and Red peppers stuffed with seafood. Mains were John Dory with caramelised onions and El Posito chicken with tumbet. Only 1Dessert again which was Almond cake with almond ice cream. Drinks were 1 large beer, sparkling water and a bottle of Emilio Moro tinto (an excellent wine recommended by Chris).
It was good to meet up with Lyn and Colin who were both looking really well, particularly after Colin’s op. A great couple!

Day 3: IRU – A lovely setting, particularly when the sun goes down and the moon rises behind the mountain, a nice atmosphere and attentive staff. We were served an amuse bouche of patatas bravas. Starters were Goats cheese served with grilled vegetables on a pastry with raspberry vinegrette, and Parmesan risotto with truffles. Mains were John Dory with Serrano ham and asparagus, and Cheese, tomato and basil ravioli with pine nut pesto. 1 dessert again of Apple crumble with marscapone cheese. Drinks were 1 large beer, sparkling water and a bottle of Mortixt negre. We visited Bar Junior (at the back of the Church on the square and to the right) where a young Mallorcan lad, Jorge, has just recently taken over the running of the bar, which is mainly frequented by locals. Jorge is a hardworking and friendly person who deserves success.

Day 4: Celler la Parra – As a family we have been visiting here for years and have seen it grow in popularity, so booking is probably essential if you want to sit inside this quirky but authentic restaurant. Starters were Prawn cocktail and croquettes. Followed by Suckling pig and Shoulder of lamb. 1 dessert again of almond cake with ice cream. This was all washed down with a beer, sparkling water and (the famous) Jarra de la casa tinto. We also had a café con leche and a carajillo. A great evening and experience! To finish off the evening we had our first visit to the Seabar IS. A bright and friendly bar with a lovely view just perfect to enjoy a beer and tinto verano.

Day 5: Centric – This was recommended to us by Sparky and it certainly did not disappoint. Friendly and attentive staff, who know what makes a good restaurant, complement the quality of the dishes. We were served an amuse bouche of gazpacho. We started with a Goats cheese and caramelised onion salad, and King prawn alioli. Main dishes were Seabass fillets and Asian chicken kebabs. 2 desserts tonight, Coffee sorbet (excellent) and Artisan apple tart with ice cream. Drinks were a large beer, sparkling water and a bottle of C’an Vidalet tinto (Pollenca). A real find for us. Afterwards popped into Bar Junior for a beer and a tinto verano.

Day 6: Tribeca – This restaurant is now run by Kenny (chef) and Maureen (Front of house) ex Citrus. Just have to mention the delicious warm brown bread served with the olives and alioli. Starters were Fishcakes with caramelised onions, and Chicken goujons with chilli sauce. Main courses were Truffle ravioli and basil sauce, and a sirloin steak with pepper sauce. 1 dessert of white and dark chocolate cheesecake and a latte. Drinks were a beer, sparkling water and a bottle of Mortixt. The quality of the cooking and presentation of the food was first class. Maureen is attentive and creates a warm atmosphere in the restaurant. A lovely evening! We caught John Lynam at the Panorama Hotel. If you have not seen/heard him it is worth making the effort. A great end to a perfect evening.

Day 7: Los Faroles – Another favourite of our kids so we had to return. The 2 of us were actually getting on quite well together by this time. We started with Soller prawns. Absolutely delicious! Our mains were Lamb chops with eggs, and Fillet of Seabass. 1 dessert of Cardenal LLosta. ( I was surprised Mr G could still walk after this!) We also had café con leche and a carajillo.
Drinks tonight were a large beer, a cava (Benjamin) and bottle of Mortixt tinto. A nice relaxing meal in pleasant surroundings.
