Excellent food, beautiful setting and absolutely brilliant waiter! We visited for lunch and ended up going back the next night for after-dinner coffees. A really lovely place!

“Very pleasant spot for an evening meal”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We chose Manzanas more or less at random from the many options available in Pollenca. The position at the bottom of the Calvary steps is a great spot for people watching and a little less manic than the central square. We had the tapas which, if not especially 'authentic', were still good and a vegetarian option was available for my wife. The staff were great and had a lovely touch with our 11 year old son. Happy to recommend this place to other visitors.

“Very original”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

The restaurant is set up on the stone terraces at the bottom of the steps leading to El Calvario and away from the clatter of Placa Major. All the tables are outside but the setting is very romantic with discrete lighting and ambiance.

The restaurant offers the imaginative selection of tapas that allows you to sample a range of traditional Spanish dishes. There is a good choice of wines on offer.

The waiters were brilliant: very helpful and friendly and with good command of English.

Overall, probably the best restaurant in town.

If you feel full afterwards – why not take the 365 steps to the top to enjoy fabulous views over the town...

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

What is there not to like? Beautiful location at the foot of the famous steps in Pollenca, friendly waiting staff and delicious food which is reasonably priced. Looking forward to a return visit in August!

“Friendly people, decent food...beware - do not expect true Tapas!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed because I was really craving really good Spanish tapas because it was listed first on the restaurant description and so many people said it was good food. The food was good, but NOT Spanish tapas!! I did see a menu on a board in the corner of the restaurant and asked about it and they explained that is a menus that will only begin on May 19th and only available in the evening. The menu is definitely international and I would even say weighed more to a British palat. Do not expect a lot of spices and not really any Spainish flair on their menu, They have salads, hummus, nachos, open faced sandwiches, salads, and burgers. They did have some tempting cakes, sweets and brownies too.

Overall the food was fine, but not what I expected or what I was looking forward to eating. The service was excellent and very friendly. It wasn't an inexpensive lunch stop either.
