Default Cap de Canto, Puerto Pollensa.

Now, I had read somewhere on here that to eat at Cap de Canto, you had to book. Dire warnings were issued about being turned away even though there were tables free, so I rushed off in the heat to book while hubby sat at Bony's in the square having a leisurely drink, a cool breeze wafting over him from the fans provided by Jose. Huh!

Anyway, we arrived at the agreed time and took a table outside, right opposite Restaurant Montenegro which was very busy, I have to say. Our entertainment for the evening was one of their waitresses who managed to keep the same deadpan expression all night. An amazing feat.

The Maitre D' of Cap de Canto was very friendly - jovial would be a good way to describe him and he made a fuss of both children. He went through the specials menu and I chose pate to start followed by duck with a plum and soy sauce. Hubby went for the chicken wings in a chilli sauce and the house special, chicken stroganoff.

While we studied the menu we nibbled on bread, olives and a fantastic fishy dip. Very moreish.

The restaurant happily provided grilled chicken for the children which they enjoyed.

Our wine for the evening was a Mallorcan Alba Flor - soft, fruity and easy-drinking.

My starter was delicious. It turned out to be chicken pate and had the most intense flavour I've ever tasted. It was served with a salad and lovely dressing and crusty bread. Hubby's chicken wings were well cooked but he did say the sauce tasted a little artificial - as if it came out of a jar rather than prepared by the chef, but he enjoyed it nonetheless.

My main course of duck breast was superb. Very tender, beautifully cooked and plentiful. The slices were served on a bed of spinach (I think) accompanied by roasted new potatoes and vegetables.

Hubby's stroganoff was great so all in all, this restaurant more than lived up to its reputation. One word though...several people turned up after us, without booking, and were happily given tables. So maybe they have changed their policy.

This was a great restaurant with wonderful food, friendly attentive service and reasonable prices. Our meal (without desserts) came to about 95 euros which included the wine, pre-dinner drinks and water.

Quite agree - we'd currently rate it our favourite restaurant of all in PP. The stroganoff is absolutely lovely!!

Hi Lady P,

I'm not very good with directions but Cap de Canto is located one street back from the main road by the marina.

Here is a link to their page and a location map.

It's near Tots and Mollies Cafe if that helps!

Just back from a week in PP. Another meal at Cap de Canto and once again it was excellent. The standards are being maintained.

What a disappointment! We’ve eaten there on many occasions over the years, but on our last visit, and I mean last visit, the meal was absolutely dreadful. We’ve endured disappointments before, Grace leaving, Anneka leaving and the introduction of a ‘licence-to-print-money’ blackboard. But to order a rare fillet steak, have it served overdone with gristle in it and then have some jumped-up English cook, not chef, argue that all fillet steak has gristle in it. I’m sorry, it was a poor cut of meat that had to be well-cooked otherwise it would have been as tough as old boots.
For us, Cap de Canto is off the list.

Just in case you are wondering about the English on the new menu..... The owner of Cap De Canto told me that his 15 year old son is learning English and proudly produced the translation for him. He knows it isn't good (ok - unintelligible), but would rather not disappoint his boy!!

Being a translator family, we were going to offer to correct it for him, but didn't have the heart after hearing that!

Long live family values eh?
