Description: Restaurant il Giardino is an all fresh produce restaurant with an Italian/French cuisine, the best of both. It has an elegant air-conditioned interior dining room in what was an original manor house, and a beautiful terrace on the main pedestian square of Pollensa town, a fovourite with families and celebrities alike. Tasty starters and salads, great pastas, fresh fish, a good selection of meats and the right wine to accompany it, all served with a smile.

“A mix of highlight and average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

Super setting, wonderful bruschetta, tiramisu and tarts tatin. But the main courses of steak and veal were disappointing. Not as good as it used to be a couple of years ago, but the Brits still flock in every night.

“Lovely breakfast”

Lovely breakfast. Had the full breakfast which was plenty for us and our 18 month old! Lovely setting and very friendly staff.

“A bit disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

We had judged that this was among the most popular restaurants on the main square in Pollensa. But when we tried it, we felt the food was average and lacking the special features to make the occasion memorable and encourage us to return.
It was by some way, the most expensive place we visited on our holiday; and so in our view, not value for money.

“Excellent Food in Wonderful Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We ate here during our holiday to Port de Pollensa over Easter. We love this restaurant and as the title suggests, the food and setting are excellent. We always go here for a coffee and cake from the restaurant's patisserie on market days and then eat here at least once in the evening. The menu has changed slightly over the years but the choice and quality remains constant. We had a really enjoyable evening at Il Giardino and will be back when we visit again in August.

“Very, very good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

The best of a weeks worth of eating out in and around Pollenca. Yes, slightly more expensive than others, but in our opinion, well worth it. Well cooked, freshly prepared food and careful service. Turbot beautifully cooked.
