We spent a few lovely evenings with doogz 1874 and mogs in late May when they were in PP, so all is well but they are probably busy earning and saving for their next visit .

Well it has certainly put a smile on my face knowing I've been missed
As usual Sparky is spot on - I've just been really busy with work so haven't really been on here as much as I would like.
Also, with a couple of visits every year and a long list of favourite restaurants (and favourite dishes at each restaurant) I felt I was probably just repeating pretty much the same report each time which would be pretty boring for anyone reading but here are a few quick highlights from the last few visits:

El Posito - remains a top pick for us: food has consistently been great over the years but the addition of the "new" waiter Stephen has made the service & atmosphere even better than before (obviously the atmosphere had bit of an advantage as Lyn & Colin were with us )

Can Tofol - We've certainly increased our number of visits here (for lunch), in general I'll opt for one of the daily specials (Ribs in sobrasada & honey sauce was a stand out - as was oxtail) & Mogs will have a Pa Amb Oli - always great food and value.

No 31 Bar & Restaurant - It's only been here just over a year but is already a firm favourite (with us & many others!). Excellent food & good value - but you should always have a cocktail here .... in fact, as it can be quite a busy restaurant I'd suggest popping in the night before and booking .... and seeing as you're there you should treat yourself to a cocktail

Hibiscus - This wasn't a must visit every holiday but we'd pop in every 3 or 4 visits however with a few favourites closing this has now been added to our regular list. Evening MDD offers a good selection of dishes at excellent value.

Terrae - Another new(ish) restaurant on what was the site of La Celtika (and previously Mollies). It's completely different yet very similar to La Celtika (you see : it's this sort of oxymoronic contradiction that really shows why I shouldn't be writing!)... the style of food is completely different but the quality of ingredients and inventiveness of cooking & presentation are similar. They offer a tasting menu that is excellent but may be a little expensive.

Plaza Uno - Yet another new(ish) restaurant: seriously good steaks (highly recommend the Japanese cut - i.e. Wagu beef, aged for >35 days and cooked to perfection). Seafood is also great - especially the Tuna Tartare and seafood Frito. Service is great and if you've frequented La Llonja over the years you'll probably recognise some of the team.

The rest - Los Faroles, Na Ruixa, Bar Rumbo, Bar Coral. La Llonja, Bonys (& anywhere else I've forgotted) - are all just as good as ever

Default Thank You Doogz1874

Great to read your report and no 31 (caramel vodka and those clams as a starter mmm) and El posito are now on our fav list since last years visits to them both.

Where is Plaza Uno please ?

Have been reading up about new places and intend to visit Amazo but could possibly squeeze in Paza Uno as well.

Cheers

Plaza Uno is on the square - think it was previously "Mojito" - think they also do a very reasonable evening MDD .... but I must say I find it difficult not to go a la carte and order the steak

I also love reading your reports and don't find them repetitive! Places can change over the years and I would never have tried Plaza Uno as didn't like Mojito but will definitely give it a go this year. We all love good steak!
