Default El Posito.

Looks like El Posito is falling out of favour.

You read my mind whaley! I had an evening meal in El Posito about 5 weeks ago with my dad, sister and her two teenagers. None of us were impressed with either the food or the service. We were given little paper menus when we sat down, and I'm sure there was only a choice of four mains. When I asked if we could have something off the actual menu, as detailed outside, I was told to go out and look at it and then ask to see if "chef" could do it

I asked for main menus at the table and the six of us were reluctantly given one.

To be honest, we should have left there and then. We had to order off the little paper menus and it wasn't worth the wait or the money. It was the worst meal my family had in the two weeks that they were here, and we ate out every night.

I was in the bad books 'cos I'd been studying everyone's reviews here on the forum and had this down as one of the best A bit like Mirch Masala, there were some great reviews and some terrible ones, although we never ate there.

Steve.

Have to say that we have eaten at El Posito twice and were unimpressed on both occasions so wont bother again - too many other options

Totally agree It's differences of opinion that keep the world on its toes and makes life interesting

Hi Pepperoni Man, In answer to your question, where would you like me to start ??, I often get asked where the best restaurants are in Puerto Pollensa, my answer is "the only way to find out is to try them", as made clear in these posts every single person has a different opinion on food, the food that I really enjoy would probably be sent back by another. I like the quiet life........

The answer is simple, because most british people are. Whenever I go into a restaurant for the first time They can't believe I intend to spend the evening there. Speak to the waiters in the restaurants and they will all tell you the same thing. Most brits they see come in want to eat immediately and go. Case in point, Tried el bistro for the first time last september. The waiter commented that he couldn't believe we wanted to have a drink and not even look at the menu for over an hour. Took the waiters in Brisas marina ages to get used to the fact that we would be there for around 4 hours. Nowdays when we go in they don't even atempt to give us a menu for well over an hour. I have never understood it myself. Folks on holiday, whats the rush. Sadly however we are known for it.

As long as we get our bottle of wine fairly quickly we are happy to take our time !

Do think El Posito is to slap it down clear it away Food Ok but with so many recommendations on here we will give it a miss next year

Fully agree! We are always the last ones out of a restaurant, nobody ever rushes you. If i'm not ready i'll politely ask them to take it back and return it when i am. Maybe we should encourage the restaurant owners on to the board and give us their views, i know Can Josep came on and explained the problem, which helped a great deal. Perhaps El Posito think they're giving us the service some demand.
