Default Celler Es Moli

Spain used to have loads of places like this – catering mainly to a lunchtime trade of local workers who couldn’t get home for a cooked “main meal of the day” and siesta. But changing customs and car ownership have put paid to many of them.

As indicated by its name, the restaurant is in an old mill (and photos of the original workings are on the wall). Get here bang on 1 o’clock when it opens or you may have wait or be asked to share a table We got there at ten past and shared with a couple of decorators dressed in their overalls and with paint in their hair (yes, it’s that sort of place). And you’ll need to take your restaurant Spanish with you however modest. The menu, such as it is, is on the blackboard and offered three starters (two salads and a soup) and three mains (ribs, sole & lasagne). There’s no translation to English, of course, and the concession to you being a foreigner is that you’ll be spoken to in Castilian not Catalan. Bread, olives, water and wine are all included in the €8 price and are already on the table.

Caesar salad was much as you’d expect, except perhaps you don’t expect it to be quite so garlicky. Chicken salad – the finely chopped meat mixed with mayo – with some radicchio and tomato was tasty. Lasagne was small dish of pasta and flavoursome sauce – straight from the oven and with a warning about how hot it was. Desserts were fruit or a variety of “tartas” – chocolate for me, strawberry the other side of the table. Bought in “catering” desserts for sure – but what do you expect at this price.

We finished with coffee which added another €2 to the total bill. Thoroughly enjoyed lunch – not least for the opportunity to be somewhere away for the touristy side of the area. Es Moli will become spoiled if it’s overrun by tourists and the locals will resent it, so please don’t go. You didn’t really want a good cheap lunch of home cooking, did you?

Have just had a very long lunch here, in the company of the family from El Ancla, to celebrate Leo and my hubby's bdays. MDD's for all 16 of us and god knows how many extra bottles of vino plus bday cake and 2 bottles of Cava. I don't know what the bill came to but in true Spanish tradition the bday boys foot the bill and hubby only paid €50 for his share.
All i can say is it was money well spent, the place was heaving, the food and service were superb and we will go back again on our own.

Where is this restaurant please? I can't find it mentioned in the directions thread
and it sounds just the kind of place I would love to try.

Thanks

It is only open for lunch ( i think) if you are coming from PP you take the first turning for LLuc then it's the first turning on the left, over the bridge ( not the Roman bridge) and it's on the right. Parking is at a premium. We had a taxi it cost us €7, well worth it.
Hubby and i both had a Salad starter of lettuce tomato and cheese with olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing, mains of fish in sauce and fresh veg for him and escalope and saute pots with salad para me. Because it was a bday celebration we had cake, so don't know what desserts were. The wine was good as was the coffee.
This is a hidden gem and long may it reign.

Actually I have a feeling it is open some evenings as well - I'm sure our Mallorcan friends said they had been there in the evening. The MDD is only available at lunchtime though.
