One of the few places where I've had a good steak, more like the best steak I've had. Presentation of the food is unfussy but it's all about the cooking and the portions are very generous, Service is fantastic there, warm and friendly. Highly recommend to try this place.

Air of self-satisfaction pervaded what initially appeared an interesting restaurant. The disgusting olives set the alarm bells ringing. Meat was acceptable and creme caramel just fine....but .service was average. However manager/owner took exception to being questioned over a mistake with bill (not insignificant) and then suggested we go elsewhere in future...appalling and insulting attitude which was not appreciated on a...

Hidden behind a little sign on a side street did we found the door to this nice local restaurant. We were lucky to be early otherwise it's recommended to do a pre booking. The jambon to starter and spare ribs with the secret barbeque sauce from the madame was really good

If you love barbecue and roasted meats, this is your place! Inexpensive and excellent. Rafa Nadal goes here regularly for simple but good house cooking on a open fire. My mouth is watering just by writing this review! I can't wait to go back!!!

4 of us went by Bona Taula and had a real good time. The food, Mallorca style, was freshly prepared and very good. Lamb shoulder, Suckling Pig, two kebabs - all very well done. The house red is excellent. No need to go for Parker points.
