Description: Can Tomeu is one of those last restaurants remaining in Portocolom with the ancien taste of east Majorca cooking. Tomeu the owner born 1943 is extraordinary healthy and active with the old style behavior with customers of those pioners in turism. Always ready to offer for free a local fruit o a local shooter drink just to be sure that the tourist feel the real taste of the island Maria her wife born in 1945 represents the cooking tradition, always working with season produts especially majorcan lovely summer vegetables & fruits. Also meat & fish selectet from the best local farms & fisher boats. Helpfully reinforced with two womens in the chitchen & other two young waitresses. If you want to avoid fusion meals & extortionate first coast line prices. Can Tomeu is a restaurant not to loose.

Food is always very good, but Mojito like you have never tasted before. Don't leave without trying it.

Right on the waterfront - lovely location. Staff very friendly and food was great. We were also given free tapas with our lunchtime drink. A great place to visit.

The family run restaurant is most welcome and the meals were HUGE!!

We got a plate with olives, alioli and pate with bread to start, then we had starters as a main course as the portions were very big. Then we were given local fruit and a pineapple cocktail to finish off. After w days we were also given a sherry glass with lovely wine.

The family were so welcoming and I think they deserve credit where credit is due. Would definitely go back if we stayed in Porto Colom again!

We stayed in Bella Maria Hotel, located right above the restaurant, so we enjoyed dinner a dozen times here during our vacation.

The staff were really lovely, welcoming and helpful. The owner, Tomeu, greets you personally and ensures you are satisfied with the service and food. He also speaks various languages well. Just ask whenever in doubt about what is on the menu (this is the only drawback of the restaurant, as it needs to be remade and better translated). Staff also speaks freely about the ingredients and are open to suggest the freshest and tastiest dish available that evening.

Our favourites were the Sangria (which the hosts claim to be the best on the island :)) and the Paella (one of the best we have ever had). The Fritto Mallorqui, the huge steamed mussels, the filled tomato appetisers and the mixed fish platter were also very tasty. But to be honest, everything else on the menu we tried was very good. However, the desserts are only okay, nothing too special, so we advise you to rather fill up on the delicious starters and main courses.

Reacting to previous reviews of the restaurant and the apartments, the appetisers (bread, olives, allioli and pate) that the waiter brings to your table whilst you wait for the dishes to be prepared do cost 1.5 euro per head. However, in Spain (as in other southern European countries such as Italy), tipping more than a few euros is uncommon and often the cost of bread/appetisers is counted as a 'service charge'. If you do not wish to have bread and the appetisers, simply refuse them. However, we always received free fruit (2 slices of melons) and free 'chupitos' (shots) of Mallorcan Hierbas liquor or pina colada at the end of our meals.

The overall ambience of the restaurant is very typical of a family-run restaurant with simple design. Don't expect anything fancy, just great food and value for money! Kind of like an Italian Trattoria.

We were greeted in such a friendly fashion by the staff who were attentive throughout our visit. Free appetisers got us in the mood and we had the most gorgeous fresh food. My daughter and I had the best paella ever and my husband loved his steak au poivre. The wine was super and we also were given fresh melon and pineapple shots. What service. We went a second time and had the same experience. Plus the prices were so reasonable. I would recommend Tommy's to anyone. A true Spanish eating experience.
