This is an excellent restaurant in Porreros, a small town in the countryside in Mallorca. The building is fascinating and the ambience is great. The welcome and the waiting on staff are superb. We could have ordered in Spanish but the waiter spoke excellent English. The food was wonderful. I couldn't fault it. It was served in good time and... More

My favorite restaurant in Porreres is still keeping a high profile- Had another excellent lunch at a reasonable price. All nicely presented and tasty- The only problem now is that it is now so popular with locals that it can be hard to find a table!

Excellent food, but waitstaff not very friendly. Try the codfish with apricot! It's delicious!! Also the interior is nice. If the waitstaff would also be more charming - everything would be perfect.

Had a great value set meal at this central restaurant. The decor was lovely and we couldn't believe that we could both have a 3 course meal with wine for 27 euros! Really nicely done out inside and great food. Still dreaming about the delicious frosted lemon cake!

Excellent set lunch menu. 3 substantial courses with bread, olives wine or beer for less than 15 euros. Food full of flavour. Service good and the building itself lovely inside and well placed if you want to eat outside. Great alternative to hotel menus.

Good food but menu has remained unchanged and needs reviewing. We ate there during our visit but meal had to much salt which we mentioned to waiter but only response was sorry. However others we spoke to enjoyed the food so if you go ask for less salt if this is your preference.

We visited L'Escrivania several times during our recent 2 week holiday in Porreres. Menu de dia is generally very good with 3 courses, bread, olives, water, beer or wine for 12€. The menu changes weekly and is always attractively presented. Occasionally there is confusion in the menu translation and we haven't been served quite what we were expecting, but it... More

Interesting building in a sleepy town square. Delicious roast pork, lamb chops a little tough but a warm welcome and a large First Communion family party to watch. A happy Sunday lunch. Prices were on the high side, but fair and the portions were generous.
