Hi PollencaTown,

To clarify some of the points, Bar Alhambra has moved to the main square and is now called Cafe Placa. The old location is still called Bar Alhambra but run by new owners who serve tapas and drinks. Still a great place to sit and relax.

LuLu's reopened with an English owner and is apparently changing its name.

La Font del Gall is now open with El Brio as the new owners, but they still have El Brio as well. We ate there the other night but no way near the previous standard.

Manzanas y Peras always has a fully booked sign outside for the tapas nights and I heard they are also moving to a new bigger location in the old town.

The new building by the square is apparently going to be a very up-market restaurant, but not open yet and has a hideous logo.

Hope this helps, and hope you enjoy your stay.

Halter-neck culottes ... well that's a new one ... so ... if I see a young lady wearing said item ... then I will know it's suzystew ... get me ... learning all the latest fashionista craze

Thanks popimages for clarifying ... it's still sad that Bar Alhambra is in the main square now ... but hey ho at least my favourite spot is still available for use.

I've never really gone a bundle on El Brio ... often found the food somewhat un-inspiring (imho) ... oh and the waitress needs to smile more (imho)

I'm a bit gutted about Manzanas Y Peras because they are only open at night (Tue to Thur ... I believe) for their Tapas Menu ... and alas I go home on Tuesday ... it would have been right nice to see if they lived up to their number 1 spot ... still at least I can try lunch there ... that should give me an idea what they are like.

It's quite exciting having the prospect of an upmarket restaurant in Pollenca ... I'll keep an eye on that one!

Thanks so much guys for all of your replies ... they have helped enormously.

Roll on tomorrow

Manzanas y Peras may also be moving next year to larger premises with a terrace.

Ha Ha oh no not a halter top!! It is a pure white Egyptian cotton shirt, bought from the shop in Alcudia, where all the items are white. I have often seen them you can buy any item of clothing but it is white cotton.

Well ... I'm not sure now whether it's a pair of halter neck culottes or whether it's a pure white Egyptian cotton shirt ... hand spun by Egyptian Eunuchs on a Gap Year

So ... if anyone can clarify this situation ... it would be deeply appreciated

Manzanas y Peras have completed their move to larger premises and are now up and running in Calle Martell (Placa Seglars) Tel: 971 532 292. At the moment the opening hours are Sundays 10am til 4pm and Mondays to Fridays 11am til 4pm but these will change when the season starts. I know Caroline and Paul built up a good reputation and following in the old place which was very small, this place is bigger and they now have an outside terrace so it should be a good move for them.
I wish them well for the future
