AN HONEST LOCAL RESTAURANT GUIDE


IN THE VILLAGE

Es Turo (971630808) and Ca’n Antuna (971633068)

They are within a few minutes’ walking distance from Ca’n Reus, on the right as you walk up out of the village towards the main road to Lluc.
The food is basic, Mallorquin and much the same at both restaurants though there is more choice on the menu at Es Turo. If you feel like a substantial meat dish, try the suckling pig. The paella is excellent. The soups are good for a starter (at Es Turo, try the cream of courgette soup), or the ubiquitous white asparagus (albeit bottled, it is always good). Both restaurants have a good selection of local wines and deserts and there is a friendly atmosphere. Both of them offer a good way to get a feel for the village. The Ca´n Antuna is closed on Sunday and Monday nights. Es Turo is closed on Thursday night.
(3 courses and wine come to about 70 euros for two).

Café Med (971630900)

Located just off the village square, (walk up past the Bar Deportivo) the tables spill out onto the street in the summer. The owner and chef, Neil and Steve, are English. The food is of a higher quality than the village restaurants. You will find grilled scallops and their famous crab risotto among the starters and fillet steak, sea bream and an excellent Asian chicken dish as the mains. The “Chocolate Plate” or Panacotta are a great end to an excellent meal. It is, of course, more expensive than the restaurants above. A good wine list. Closed Sundays.
(Expect to pay about 90 € for two for 3 courses and wine.)

Can Verdera (971638203)

The best restaurant in the village. Set on an elegant terrace with breathtaking views of the mountains and open only in the summer. We would recommend the black seafood risotto or the quenelles de foie gras as starters. For the main course, the fillet steak, the rack of lamb, the cod and the monkfish are all skillfully cooked and presented. The “chocolate textures” and strawberry soup with white chocolate ice are a good way of completing the gastronomic experience. Good and not overpriced wines. (Expect to pay about 100 € for two for 3 courses and wine.)

Pizzeria(971630368)

Located on the road that leads down to the village, in the building just before the two main car parks. Run by Neil’s wife, Petra, the pizzas, pastas and salads are good and the service attentive. A handy alternative to the above if you do not feel like a big meal. (40€ for two including wine)

SOLLER

Ca’n Boqueta. Gran Via, 43 (971638398 or 699390145)

Opened in 2011 by a local couple it is a welcome arrival in a town which otherwise has a disappointing selection of restaurants. The chef, Kiko Martorell, offers a different menu every week, e.g. the night that we went – creamy mushroom soup, warm prawn paté with salad, cod on a bed of sautéed, caramelised onion, a nugget of veal with potato and grilled vegetables, tiramisu for pudding and all for 24 euros a head! Add 17 euros or so for a decent bottle of wine and you get one of the best value and delicious meals in town. For lunch, Ca’n Boqueta offers a “Menu del Día”, three courses including bread, wine and water for 14 euros.

PUERTO SOLLER

The Es Passeig (971630217)

is located directly on the promenade of the beach area "Es Repic" in Port de Sóller, offering a wonderful view over the bay and the old town of the small village. Coming from Sóller, don´t take the tunnel but follow the signs direction "Es Faro" and "Playa d´en Repic" for about 1 km. Turn right before the "Geranios" hotel and park along the road. Es Passeig is located at the waterfront at some 2 walking minutes from one of the parking areas.
Marcel Battenberg is the chef since 2005 and his wife Yvonne Battenberg the delightful head waitress at this elegant restaurant in the port. Guest have complimented the spanish tapas selection and the roasted scallops as starters and the whole sea bream and beef as main course. For puddings, the creme brullee and the warm chcolate fondant are heaven. All the dishes are cooked with a lightness and attention to detail which make for a memorable meal. The wine list have a lot of majorcan wines and unlike most local restaurants, the house white and red wines are excellent.
( 3 courses plus wine for 2 - about 100 euros)
