“wow, what a lovely building”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

We stopped for a bottle of champagne to celebrate my 60th, the week before. There is a bugatti car at the front door ( the hotel owner). The cost was 50 euros for a very high quality french bottle, in the UK the same bottle is £45, from a supermarket, and normally £90 in a UK resturant.

“Genteel, gracious, great service”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

The paella was a bit salty but flavorful. Nice to find as we really wanted to find Spanish food in Spain instead of pizza! The venue was lovely. We found it a very pleasant interlude, in a lovely day in Soller. We would recommend.

“Excellent value overall”
Reviewed 2 August 2010

Reading LittlePumpkin's educated and comprehensive review, it goes to show sometimes that a restaurant can change it's nature virtually overnight. We ate there last week and had an excellent experience. My wife chose the sea bass which was moist and tasty, the rest of our party chosing meat courses which were absolutely fine - the lamb was excellent. My foie gras was actually very pleasant and I enjoyed it - luck of the draw. Deserts were very good.The setting is very open and relaxed, a lawned area at the front of the imposing hotel with a cooling water feature. The service was polite and attentive and I'd find it difficult to fault the package, particularly for the price. While not wishing to judge a hotel because of local livestock, I agree with LittlePumpkin about that cat - I'm no great cat lover and it didn't help to have that creepy, black, green-eyed thing - straight off the set of 'The Mummy Returns' - wandering around. What saved us was the hotel duck - a feisty mallard with real attitude (and an obvious inability to read the word 'canard' on the menu) who bustled up to our table and sent el gato packing - and all for a little bread. As I said, attentive service from all staff!
Well worth a try, and on prevous reviews, possibly the meat dishes are the better options from the set menu.

“Fantastic place”
Reviewed 6 July 2009

Had a wonderful meal here. Very well cooked and lovely welcoming atmosphere. Staff are genuinely friendly - would definately recommend. As well as the main Can Blau restaurant, they also do afternoon teas on the beautiful front lawn of the hotel, as well as weekly barbeques and paella evenings outside. Very romantic setting, and we will definately go back one day.
