Default Trip Report June/July 2015 Part 2

Day 8: Nico’s – Back to Nico’s tonight. We recognise that Tex-Mex may not be for everyone but there is no disputing the quality of the food with the steaks amongst the best in the port. A warm welcome always awaits from Marcos and his team who never seem harassed despite how busy they can get. We shared a starter of Spicy chicken wings. Mains were a Utah Sirloin steak, and a Crazy chicken quesadilla. 1 dessert of Apple crumble with ice cream. Drinks were a large beer, sparkling water, a bottle of El Elemental tinto and a cortado.

This was the ideal venue for us to refuel after a great trip with No Frills Excursion to Port Soller, Soller, Deia and Valdemossa. It was good to sit back and relax on the coach, and enjoy the humour and banter of Caty the tour guide, who was also a wealth of knowledge. Would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to see some of the loveliest villages, beautiful mountains scenery and stunning coast of western Majorca.

Day 9: La Llonja – A lovely setting on the terrace and a lovely atmosphere. We were served tapenade and tomato to accompany the bread. We started with a Roast carrot, leaves, apricot and cream cheese salad, and Tempura prawns with dip (this dish could have been a main!). Our mains were Mushroom stuffed chicken in curry sauce with rice, and 3 white fillets with roasters and fennel sauce. 1 dessert of Chocolate fondant with ice cream and fruit. We also had a cortado and an Amaretto coffee. Drinks were a beer, a glass of pink cava and a bottle of Ses Nines. We noticed that the menu del dia was very reasonably priced.

Day 10: Cellar la Parra – A return visit. Thank goodness we had booked! Mr G just loves the walnut bread with the olives. We started with Prawn cocktail and the Croquettes (just like the last time, so that says something!). Mains were Pork loin ( a huge portion!) and the Mallorcan shoulder of lamb. 1 dessert of almond cake and ice cream and 1 cortado. Drinks were a large beer, sparkling water and a Jarra del a casa tinto. This restaurant must be up there with the best value for money restaurants anywhere.

Day 11: Tribeca – This is worth a return visit. We again had the delicious warm bread with olives and alioli. We started with Truffle ravioli, and Cumin fishcakes. Mains were Paprika chicken and Seabass fillet with chorizo mash (Mmmm!). We both then had warm caramel shortcake with ice cream. Deliciously gooey!! Drinks were a beer, a cava and a bottle of Oliver Mont Ferrutx tinto. Kenny is a very talented chef excellently supported by Maureen. They have got the formula in Tribeca just right.

Day 12: Centric – We decided to return after our first visit which we enjoyed so much. We were served a cheese and tomato jam amuse bouche. Starters this time were a Goats cheese and walnut salad, and Gyozas (Japanese dumplings). Mains were Duck confit with honey orange sauce, and Suckling pig (served off the bone, no fat just crackling). Desserts were Artisan apple cake and a Creamy coffee sorbet. Drinks were a large beer, sparkling water and a bottle of C’an Vidalet tinto. This is a lovely restaurant where the team seek to ensure you have an enjoyable experience. We finished our evening at Café L’Algar where we enjoyed Cocktails and beers in the company of Kenny and Maureen from Tribeca.

Day 13: El Posito – A lovely welcome from Toni, Chris and Miguel. Starters were El Posito salad and Calamari. Mains were Lamb chops in garlic, and a Sirloin steak (with real chips). Delicious!! 1 dessert of Almond cake with ice cream and a cortado. All washed down with a large beer, sparkling water and a bottle of Emilio Moro tinto.
It was good to see Lyn and Colin again and wished Colin well for his next op. It was also good to meet PortRob and his lovely family enjoying their meal. We finished off a wonderful evening listening to John Lynam. Excellent!

Day 14: IRU – Our last evening of this holiday and we were still talking to each other! We would find it difficult to think of a better setting to end our holiday. The amuse bouche this evening was Crab and prawn salad. Starters were Goats cheese salad and Parmesan risotto. Mains were Cheese, tomato and basil Ravioli with pine nut pesto, and a superb fillet of Denton with roasted vegetables. 2 desserts this evening of Crème brulee, and Almond cake with ice cream. Drinks were a large beer, sparkling water and a bottle of Mortixt negre. Carlos and his team always try to ensure you have an enjoyable meal, and for us they succeed.

It will be difficult to select a top 5!!!!!!
Roll on next year when we return to, as someone we all know once put it, “The Island of Dreams”.

Also, ah hem ......................!!!! Sparky, would it be possible to borrow around 8,500 Euro!! You can trust me, my friend is an electrician!!

Seriously though, great reading - keep up the good work everyone.

Default Tribeca

Pardon my forgetfulness but I cannot quite visualise TriBeCa. Is it on the corner of Llevant and Crtra Formentor, opposite Guru? I can't find it on the map of restaurants.

Yes that's it but you won't find it on the map as they don't pay to advertise on the main website .

Re-Not been to PP for a few years now. Wow, in you position I would have had to seek treatment for withdrawal symptoms.
