I think this is a pretty upto date write up, but you know how quickly names change, next week they could be totally different!

Places to Eat – Restaurant Guide

Below is a selection of some favourite eating places in Pollensa and Puerto Pollensa, a mini restaurant guide for your holiday to Pollensa and Puerto Pollensa.

Pollensa

Numero Ocho Brasserie (Tel 971 53 15 98 | www.brasserie8.com)

Plaza Major next door to the Café L’illa. This is a very good bistro style restaurant, extensive menu with something for everybody. The seafood pasta is excellent and they also do a lovely club sandwich everything is cooked from fresh on the premises including the lovely cakes baked by the owners wife. Something for everyone including the price. Open for breakfast right through until dinner, great food served all day


Il Giardino (Tel 971 53 43 | www.giardinopollensa.com)

Main Square(Plaza Major) the one with the large white umbrellas and stone frontage. Very good food excellent service. Higher price end but great location. Some of the favourites are the bruchetta, the vegetable lasagne and the crème brule.


Trencadora (Tel 971 53 18 59)

150m from the Plaza Major. If you have the church in front of you, turn to your right and walk out the square there is a bank on your right Cologne de Pollença walk 150 meters, across the crossroad and you will arrive at the restaurant on your left. It has a sandwich board outside with the menu on. You will see a waterfall sculpture in the entrance. This offers local food along with Italian cuisine, they have a pizza oven and good fresh fish selection. Very good value in a lovely setting. One of my favourites is the sole fish.


Clivia (Tel 971 53 36 35)

If you take the exit off the main square with Il Giardino on your right walk along this road to the end with the chemist on your right cross over the road Keeping to your left you will see Clivia on your left next door to Balearic Properties. This is a very good fish restaurant with an extensive wine menu. They also offer a variety of other local dishes including meat & poultry. My favouritess are chiperones (lightly fried baby squid), pimientos de padron (small green peppers in rock salt).& Lobster Paella. Very good food with  waiters and owners can seem a little abrupt but this is just the typical Pollensian way


La Boca (Tel 971 53 07 14)

You will find this place on the roundabout on the outskirts of Pollensa heading to the port it also has very large house shops on it (Paco Muebles)
This is a new and exciting restaurant serving up every conceivable meat it’s Argentinian owned so lots of exciting grill food to try. The lunch menu served until 15.00 is exceptional value.


St Malo Bistro (Tel 971 53 19 50)

This is a lovely bistro with a wonderful French Chef Frank who has created an extensive menu using fresh local produce. Also offering daily specials.
You will find this restaurant on a short walk from the main square passing Vogue properties and the chemist carry along pass Balearic properties & Sol Inmobiliaria at the end of this road you will see Engel & Volker estate agents cross over the zebra crossing to Engel & Volker and behind the estate agents you will find St Malo.


El Moli

This is a very traditional Mallorquin restaurant at the back of old town Pollensa, offering a real taste of what culinary delights Mallorca has to offer. If you go to the roundabout (la Boca & Paco Muebles) with the sign post for Lluc you will also see a sign for Pollença and a sign for the El Moli restaurant. If you park your car along this tree lined road and walk the last few minutes as it’s difficult to park in the town you will see the restaurant on the corner.


Puerto Pollensa

Stay (Tel 971 86 40 13 | www.stayrestaurant.com)

This appears to be everybody´s favourite restaurant serving up something for everyone and consistently good. Great setting, great service & great food. Lots to choose from they also offer a set menu which is good value for 3 courses including wine & water and handmade chocolates to finish. The A La Carte menu is very expensive but does have some exceptionally good dishes to tempt you to spend that little bit more.
The owners of this place also have another restaurant C’an Currassa along the bay road heading out to Alcudia which is also very good with a garden setting.


Na Ruixa (Tel 971 86 66 55)

If you walk along the sea front passing the Hotel Daina and all the little shops and restaurants on your left you will also pass the Mirador Hotel the walkway splits into two you will see an estate agents Bernard Hamilton to your left if you turn left just before the estate agents you will see Na Ruixa on the left hand side with tables on the terrace. This is a very popular restaurant with the locals serving traditional Mallorquin dishes.


Corb Mari  (Tel 971 86 70 40)

See directions above just past the estate agents you will find Corb Mari. They offer snacks on the terrace during the day which are very good and reasonable priced also the Grill restaurant which is open in the evening offers fabulous fresh fish and lots of meats to choose from which they then cook for you on the grill in the centre of the restaurant. This again is also a popular restaurant with the locals.


Ivy Garden (Tel 971 86 62 71 | www.ivygarden49.com)

Situated on the road just behind the restaurant Na Ruixa approx 50m towards the marina, you will find this very popular restaurant serving you specials everyday which will be displayed to you on a blackboard. All the food is cooked fresh and using local produce where possible. Great dishes created by Billy Silvester (chef and owner) Well worth a visit. Also provides outside catering services for private dinners or larger functions such as parties and weddings.

(Abrasador) Tolos (Tel 971 86 40 46)

On the Seafront opposite the sail & surf school this is great in the daytime to get a bite to eat with a range of snacks and meals to suit everybody. Good varied menu, open all day. Waiters that have been there as long as the Port itself.

After all is said and done, a lot more will be said than done!

Note to self and hint to others!  A good idea to check opening days of restaurants before dressing up to go out!  Have missed Manzanas y Peras twice, and birthday meal at Clivia was a no go on Wednesday as they were closed too!  Ended up at Can Cuarassa though, which is my standby favourite. Just fancied trying out Clivia as had not yet been there. Still have not been there!!!   ::)

Good find Bella! Helpful to have at fingertips.
I don't think to use trip advisor for anything other than accomodation related.  ::)

After reading the Pump up the Volume thread on La Roda and not having a clue where it is, I did a very quick (and tired) google to find it. It does not seem to have its own website, but I did like the interactive map here which you can enlarge and shows a few other restaurants too.
