3) La Vall - fab menu del dia and very good chargrill evening menu.

4) Dragon Oriente Chinese restaurant, very good value and tasty food.

5) Hostal Borras - very good food at reasonable prices. (Service can be a bit chaotic at times though). Excellent live music events on some nights.

1 Na Ruixa Boring (as in I always have the same meal) - again:Fillet Steak - beautiful. Proper restaurant, not a
tourist trap. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
2 Coral We nearly had a season ticket, 3 visits:2x 'special of the day' leg of
lamb. Veteran forumites will
hopefully 'get' the irony of special of the day. One takeaway
(not lamb)

3 Laroc It was convenient - the pizzas huge. Good staff. New boss didn't
. mooch about glad handing the punters as Bruno did.

4 Can Ferrą Another good meal, washed down with an acceptable house red.

No pretensions to be anything other than good basic , mainly
local infuenced food. Lovely staff and atmospheric ambience
(bet no ones said the about Can Ferra before

5 Al Fresco Well, it isn't a restaurant. OK its a takeaway but it produces
many a lunch for back at the apartment or down on the beach.
Always of a high quality and an amazing choice of food on

Only out for seven days and the above are from those seven days and refer to the places we ate at during that time. Previous visit in June included the old faithfuls, Stay, and Can Josep etc but excellent though they were I decide to give some points to the lesser 'famous' establishments.

There should be a mention of the Pines Bar - immaculately clean, good service, hard working staff and excellent breakfasts

I hope the hard working restaurateurs in this thread manage to cope with the confusion of the apartment licencing as it plays out into next year. The restaurant scene in PP is one of its main attractions 'Its impossible to get a bad meal in PP' I always say. If the apartment component of visitor numbers is reduced as seems likely where will it leave the food trade? Not a happy note to end on.We have booked Jet2 Holidays for June, but will be keeping an eye on how things pan out before I have to pay the final bill. I booked with the intention of reviewing at that time and forfeiting the deposit if I am not happy.

Sorry MWC, I seemed to have hi-jacked your thead. I'll go away now

My wife's top 5 are:

1) Stay - food and service excellent, how they coped on a rainy night with everyone inside was brilliant.

2) Casa Vila de Mare - first visit and not disappointed, huge portions.

3) Tiberi - good food reasonably priced, good service.

4) Centric - interesting menu, something for everyone.

5) Maxim - always have a nice meal there, value for money.

My top 5 are slightly different:

1) Stay - really enjoy the food and the setting.

2) La Lonja - good food and first class service from waitress called Anna, really looked after us.

3) Corb Mari - had plenty of lunches over the years, first evening meal, excellent, and good to catch up with Jaime.

4) Casa Vila de Mare - Advice for anyone who hasn't been, share a starter. Food really tasty and big portions. (fair play to the waiter he did warn us)

5) Portofino - first visit since O'Lume was there, good food and lovely courtyard setting.

That's the votes from the Hamcas jury, until next year, hopefully.

I have chosen 5 small ''family run' restaurants which will never win a Michelin star but which we have enjoyed year after year.

1. Ca'n Ferra - love the leg of lamb and their paella

2. Bar Coral - baked cod is always great

3. Ca'n Josep - food and service are outstanding for that special occasion. Great New Year Eve.

4. Cellar la Parra - proper Mallorcan food

5. Restaurant Guru - varied menu but cooking is always first rate

Other visits were enjoyed at Stay, Centric, Osteria and Hotel Llenaire.

Our votes for this year are:

1. Siurell - very biased as we had our wedding breakfast here last year but the food is consistently good and Julie and her staff are fantastic.

2. Ca'n Ferra - first time for us and the food was exceptional.

3. Hotel Llenaire - special place for lunch complimented by fantastic views over the Bay of Pollenca.

4. Portofino - great value and in our opinion the best, of a lot, of Italian restaurants in PP.

5. Swing - again in The Llenaire region, guess where we stay, but at last upping it's game and the food is now very good.

Here's hoping that local and national governments enable all PP restaurants have enough customers to go round next year!!

Our top 5 for this year:

Trattoria da Razza - great food, service, and price

Ambrosia - also good food, service, price and best complimentary liqueur

Patio 49 - good food in nice courtyard setting

Na Ruixa - enormous portions of delicous food

Cellar la Parra - good food and value (need to book at least 5 days ahead)

Brisa Marina - ok but not as good as previous years.

Best out of town - Cellar Sa Sini in Santa Maria del Cami

Based on 2 visits, 2 of us.
1. Stay. Consistent high quality.
2. Na Ruixa. Good Spanish food, good steak and fish.
3. La Llonja. Good food, great location.
4. Coral. Very welcoming family restaurant.

We did not go elsewhere, as we were really satisfied with these 4.
Visiting in April, October, we realised how hard people work. Everyone looked tired by October, but are still unfailingly welcoming, efficient and still smiling. Definitely one of the positives of PP.

Smile Top 5 Eateries from out Trip

Hard to choose, as usual, due to large numbers of good establishments to pick from, but here goes:-

1. IRU - Great Service and food, Shellfish ti die for

2. NA RUIXA - Brilliant Grilled Sole, huge Portions, attentive service - wish we had gone there years ago - hope we get the chance to go again!

3. PESCADOR - Again great service, and Sea Bream was delicious.

4. HIBISCUS - as always, very welcoming - good and varied choice of Tapas, particularly Seafood Options - Baby Clams in Lemon and Olive Oil was superb.

5. PATIO 49 - Novel approach to pricing, but still good value for money, and something to suit everyone.

Oh dear, just occurred to me that I only ate seafood the whole trip - hope I'm not turning veggie!!! Although, where better to go for quality seafood than PP?

Here's hoping that I will get to write this in future.
