There are hundreds of restaurants in Puerto Pollensa. We can’t say we have been to each and every one, however, here’s our current top 3 best restaurants in Puerto Pollensa (These are in no particular order)
Based by the waterfront in the heart of Puerto Pollensa, Stay Restaurant offers a selection of tapas, snacks and salads during the day and offers an a la carte menu plus cost effective menu of the day in the evening. All the food is fresh, the fish is sublime and cooked brilliantly and the location is second to none. Sip a cold glass of wine whilst looking out over the Port, the terrace is a sun trap but they have shaded areas too. It is a very peaceful and tranquil setting, service is excellent and you are always welcomed with a smile. Favorite dishes there include the selection of traditional tapas at lunchtime ranging from Spanish omelette, Pimientos Padron to Chicken Croquettas. Also, love the simple but mouth watering hake fillets with saffron sauce, vegetables and rice. We must not forget to mention the homemade chocolates – lovely complimentary touch brought out at the end of your meal. (You’ll be fighting over these chocolate for sure!) Definitely up there in my best restaurants in Puerto Pollensa. Been there? Let us know what you think!
Osteria No 15
Just a few minutes walk from the beach in Puerto Pollensa is the main square, host to the Wednesday local market and many restaurants and bars. The square gets busy with locals and tourists alike and whilst there are some lovely restaurants in this area, one of the best restaurants in Puerto Pollensa has to be Osteria No 15. Situated on the corner, the décor stands out immediately as just that touch classier than all the rest and the food certainly is too. Run by Italian chefs and an English partner the customer service, delightful cuisine and lovely ambience of the square makes a great combination. Favourite dish there has to be the linguine with prawns every time! They have a great wine selection, reasonably priced and it really is a perfect place for people watching and soaking up the Spanish square atmosphere whilst having a glass of local wine and some olives. They also have an early bird menu that caters well for families wanting to eat earlier and seem to really consider all their clients needs, so who could ask for more? If you haven’t tried it, we highly recommend a visit! Come back and tell us if this has become one of your best restaurants in Puerto Pollensa?
Just on the edge of the square Centric has been considered one of the best restaurants in Puerto Pollensa for sure! The management and staff are always welcoming and the ambient atmosphere inside the restaurant is lovely, with bright, airy and simple décor. They have a small area outside with tables great for people watching and being in the hustle and bustle of the area. The beef fillet has to be the best in Puerto Pollensa and they just know how to present food, with little twists that make each dish that extra special! The seabass fillets are also wonderful and their ingredients are always so fresh and colourful. Make sure you save some space for dessert as their selection is very tempting and lets face it? Everyone needs a cooling dessert in the heat right? Let us know what you tried and whether you agree with us about Centric being one of the best restuarants in Puerto Pollensa!
