Place has a nice vibe. Service shocking. Fish which was one main course turned up a good half hour after the other. There were only two other tables in the place so not busy Food mediocre

We visited this restaurant for dinner. After a week of sea view dining, we wanted something more rustic, homely, Mallorcan and welcoming. This little gem, was all of the above. Besides from its beautiful evening valley views, comfy decor and brilliant service, we had the loveliest of home cooked meals, with a touch of class. We opted for meat as... More

Es Castell has a lovely small terrace with seating for maximal 6 persons which affords lovely views into the valley. We enjoyed pretty good cakes and drinks from there one somewhat cloudy day after visiting the castle.

Fantastic view and very nice and friendly staff. Unfortunately the food was not worth eating. I cannot recommend this place for dinner.

By chance we stumbled upon this little gem! Great decor, cozy and medieval, in tune with the amazing Capdepera Castle. The paella is great, rice cooked to perfection, not soggy nor hard. The snails (for the brave ones) were delicious, and the local veggie dish, tumbet was deligtful, the tomato sauce yummyyyy!. Price wise? Unbelievably inexpensive. Service? What can be... More

Es Castell ("Castle" in English) is a restaurant located near the Castle of Capdepera. It is located in an old building, in the old town of Capdepera. The localization of this restaurant remmember me the restaurants and little old towns of South of France, so it is beautiful! In fact, the interior part seems a castle room. Here we ate... More

The only restaurant early opened in Capdepera on Sunday night. Well the food was good, especially the local specialities and they had the honesty to tell us what was fresh and what came from the freezer (only the potatoes): and it was true as the food was really tasty. The overall atmosphere is really nice and very closed to the... More

The service was terrible. The waitress did not have knowledge or experience. The menu is poor and not all listed plates available. It took ages for the food to come and quality was bad. The place is nice but very hot. It is a no-go place until they change it all!!!

What a beautiful quaint restaurant with lovely friendly staff. Two of us paid 14 Euros each for a very poor fish paella, still searching for the fish ! It was salty and very burnt on the bottom. Quality was very poor. The tenderloin pork came with fries, which were smothered with a lot of salt, and the salty pork inedible.... More

Description
There's also an a la carte menu, which changes every three-four months, and includes typical Mallorcan cuisine, pa amb oli, tapas, pastas, salads, as well as more creative dishes, such as fillet of seabass with courgette 'spaghetti' and cauliflower puree. Portions of the superbly cooked and well-presented food are good, and can be accompanied by a Mallorcan or Spanish wine from the reasonably-priced small list.
