Default Ca'n Pacienci

Ca’n Pacienci - Wednesday 20 August

It had been a long time since we’d eaten at this restaurant situated on the main Pollensa-Puerto Pollensa road but we were determined to go back this year and enjoy the lovely food and ambience that we’d always enjoyed in the past. So we booked a table during the day by telephone, just to make sure we could be fitted in.

After a relaxing drink at the Daina in PP, we arrived and found just a few other tables occupied. In the past, there had been tables set up inside the beautiful old bougainvillea covered building, but this evening there were about seven or eight set up on the terrace.

Dudley made us feel very welcome and said that they would be happy to serve half portions for the children if required as they don’t do a children’s menu. One of the long standing waiters was there and we were very happy to see him as he is lovely and friendly and a real character.

We studied the menu while happily munching on bread and butter! Yes, butter!!! There was also some delicious pate and olives and more bread was brought out with a smile. I chose a bottle of Sangre de Toro wine from Torres which was lovely - very fruity and easy-drinking.

For starters we all had the tomato soup which was delicious and very tasty. The children loved it and we were told that we could have as much bread as we wanted which was great.

Our main courses arrived very quickly after the starters. Hubby had chosen the half duck with stuffing and gravy while I opted for the tiger prawn curry, which I requested a little hotter than normal. The children chose the fried scampi and Dudley told us that that they were using the same tiger prawns for this dish as my curry.

Hubby and I were more than happy with our main courses. My curry was delicious - hot and spicy and served with boiled rice and a crinkly poppadum. Hubby’s smallish duck came served with fried potatoes, cauliflower cheese and green beans.

Unfortunately, the children were not happy with their scampi and looking back, I think we made a mistake with ordering the dish for them as they are not used to seafood. The prawns themselves were fine and cooked beautifully but I’ll forever remember my son gamely chewing away on a prawn and holding it by the tail, determined he was going to enjoy it!

To make up for their main courses the children chose the chocolate pot and the sticky toffee pudding for dessert which they enjoyed immensely.

The bill came to 146 euros and we felt that, although good, the food was over-priced. Our soup was 8 euros, almost £7.00 in sterling. Starters range from 8 euros to about 24 euros with the average price at around 12-15 euros. Main courses were around 18-25 euros while dessert was 8 to 10 euros. The set menu is no longer available but a lot of the dishes are still there, with the emphasis on duck and fish.
