Default Ca'l Lloro, Pollensa.

Ca’l Lloro is a new hotel and restaurant that has opened in Pollensa square, just to the left of the steps if you are facing the church. Last year I remember seeing all the scaffolding and wondered what it would turn out to be. The old building has been beautifully restored and has an large outside eating area; an old fountain stands amidst the tables and is a popular feature with young children.

We booked a table before going for a drink at the Café Espanyol and as we went into the bar, drops of rain were falling from a cloudy, stormy sky. One of the staff told us that if it continued to rain we would be eating in the restaurant upstairs, within the hotel itself.

For an hour we eyed the unsettled sky and watched as the old ladies in the square huddled under the umbrellas with their cups of coffee, But thankfully, by the time we walked the short distance to Ca’l Lloro the rain had stopped.

There are four very good restaurants in this small area including Il Giardino and La Posada d’Ariant and this makes for a great atmosphere. As we approached the restaurant, Alex came running out of Ca N’Olesa and kissed me. It was great to see him and if I’d known he was working at one of our favourites, we’d have eaten there! He was a brilliant waiter at Ca’n Costa and we missed his expert service and friendly smile.

We took our seats right next to the fountain and had a great view of all the comings and goings. My son chose his meal and then rushed off to resume his football game in the square while the rest of us nibbled on bread and studied the menu. We both ordered salads to start – hubby chose the walnut, grape and cheese while I went for a plain mixed salad. These were followed by grilled hake for hubby and entrecote steak and pepper sauce for me. The children chose off their own menu and decided on chicken in batter.

The staff were efficient and friendly and we congratulated ourselves on booking as the place was almost full with reserved signs on the empty tables.

The food was very good and beautifully prepared. Our salads were delicious and were just the right size for a starter. The children ate their main course while we enjoyed our first and said the chicken was delicious.

We chose a local wine, the red Mortitx to go with our main course and it was very enjoyable, a really fruity easy-drinking wine that even went well with hubby’s hake. My entrecote was tender and the sauce a nice accompaniment. The grilled vegetables and sautéed potatoes were delicious. Hubby enjoyed his hake immensely and after the meal we sat back, replete and satisfied while we did a spot of people watching!

Seeing the dessert menu, we couldn’t resist a pud so I opted for the mascarpone cup and the children went for the chocolate mousse. All three desserts were sublime!



All in all, we will definitely return to Ca’l Lloro. It is very similar to Ca N’Olesa and La Posada d’Ariant in terms of menu choice and the setting is fabulous.


Bill was 105 euros including wine.
