Default Ca'n Costa, Pollensa

Ca'n Costa - Friday 15 August

When it’s your 16th Wedding Anniversary, it’s only natural that you want to go somewhere special to celebrate and, of course, we chose Ca’n Costa. We made sure of a table by booking the evening before and when we arrived there was just one other party eating. My outfit matched the colour scheme which has changed to cream and black and we settled back into the lovely comfortable sofas to study the menu, a dish of olives and cheesy biscuits to nibble on.

I don’t think the menu has changed since last year but that suited my husband who already knew what he wanted - the baked cod. He also chose the asparagus and parmesan quiche for a starter while I went for the vegetable soup followed by the loin of lamb in a herb crust served on a bed of colcannon mash. Plain chicken breasts were ordered for the children.

Dining at Ca’n Costa is a wonderful experience and one I will never tire of. As well as the excellent food, I love the old building - the stone pillars, the paintings on the wall and the comfortable leather chairs. We’d chosen a bottle of French champagne which was waiting for us at the table and settled down to enjoy a lovely meal which started off with different breads and two dips (one was pear and strawberry with olive oil) to accompany them.

After we’d devoured the bread, we were given little shot glasses of gazpacho soup which was thick and delicious.

The service is friendly and unobtrusive - you really get the feeling you are being looked after here and nothing is too much trouble.

Our starters were delicious - even the children liked Hubby’s quiche and my vegetable soup was thick and filling!

Hubby's main course of cod lived up to his expectations, while my lamb was beautifully cooked with a gorgeous sauce.

Unfortunately we made a mistake with the desserts as the children did not enjoy their chocolate tart with peppercorns, which is understandable. Although delicious they didn't appreciate the heat of the pepper! I had chosen banana tarte tartin which I gave to my daughter instead. Hubby had the lemon sorbet with absolut vodka which took him an age to eat as the vodka was really strong, but he said it was a wonderful experience!

The champagne I ordered was delicious - I'm not usually a fan of champagne but this was described as a Grande Cuvee and it was beautiful - very biscuity and full-bodied.

All in all a wonderful evening and the bill came to a staggering 185 euros (mainly because of the champagne at 55 euros). The restaurant is happy to cater for children and will cook plain chicken breasts or spaghetti.
