Food Scene
I like the bar, the view of the Port from the terrace, the friendly staff & the user friendly culinary offerings. Perfect with kids, great any time. Honestly.

A lovely lunch time spot, set back from the very idilic coast offering a cafe & a shaded restaurant terrace upstairs. I can't remember what I ate, but it was surely a simple catch of the day...

Book. A little serious for the casual terrace seeking patron, but an enjoyable spot for an affordable treat, conjuring up daily changing modern Spanish cuisine to surprise & delight.

This is such a lovely place. A bit up market & not easy to get to, but go for lunch on a nice day. Paella for 2 & a bottle of nice cold white wine. You will understand why I like it !

terrific fish with a traditional Spanish approach to goodness. Simple but serious. Ideal for a quiet terrace lunch on a perfect day or a cosy hide away from the storm...

Out the door, across the street & whats more it is good, offering a nice 'modern med' alternative to the more traditional offerings in the village such as adorable & very Mallorquine Ca'N Antuna. Neal, the Anglo owner has recently sold & opened a new place across from my favourite shop, Tipic. Yet to visit...

This is the new 2018 hot Mallorquine place in Palma. One long bar, fun wines, food busily prepared across the counter. Modern, delicious & fun. El Camino is the proverbial cats whiskers & unfortunately has made it into flight mags so pick your moment or face the hateful prospect of a queue. Eddie Hart, local boy made good in London with Barafina etc is raising the level very significantly. Go solo or as a couple, lunch being an easier option. There are a few stand up places at the back. No bookings

The Spanish royal family like C'aN'Antuna, so do the residents of Fornalutx. Me too ! No better place in the village for a robust paella & a draft beer on the terrace overlooking the valley & the Tramuntanas

Not at all challenging if you like walking in natural surroundings, enjoy migrating birds. Take binoculars. Visit when you are over lunching in the Port of Polencia as it is an excursion.

The place to go for intermediate priced wines with quality & character. The large range proposed is exclusively Mallorquine & Spanish - rightly so but they also have spirits & an extensive range of their own liquors.
