We are on the island of Majorca for a week - we come here every May.
After reading an old Telegraph review yesterday, we decided to head towards the small town of Porreres. The review discussed high gourmet restaurants and how many people are looking for good food but at at reasonable cost - it recommended L'Escrivania.
In this somewhat picturesque square are many restaurants, with our choice sitting at one corner. A lunch menu offered three courses with three choices each at a price of €11.90, including bread, olives and mayonnaise. We both chose the same items.
First a green salad with apple and figs - fresh and refreshing. Then we had fish vol au vents with fish sauce - hand made and the sauce was sublime. Finally we had apricots star - seems the chef and owner's grandfather grew apricots and sold them in various forms. They still sell them.
I have eaten in many fine restaurants in various cities but have never had such a wonderful, fresh combination of food with such exquisite tastes.
We ate outside but inside, there is an eclectic mix of table and chairs. Staff were capable and friendly. The young chef and owner, Can Parri, talked to us about his background and philosophy. Such a friendly man who wants to serve the best food at prices affordable in his small town.
The lunch menu changes every week. We may stay a few more days so we can have next week's menu!!

You don't have to go to Palma to find great food. L'Escrivania in the little town of Porreres has it all - good food, cool music, sophisticated decor and a delightful host. We were looked after extremely well and made to feel special as we were there to celebrate a birthday. Every course was beautifully presented and delicious. L'Escrivania is a must visit place.

Back on Mallorca after Christmas in Sweden we had our first meal here. Although pricier on weekends it was still worth it with excellent food, wine and service. We fully enjoyed or lunch and we can honestly say that we have never been disappointed here.

We have now returned to Mallorca for our winter stay. This was our first lunch out. We went to our favorite in Porreres, the L'Escrivania. The interior was slightly modyfied since our last visit but the price was the same. We started with a sallad with dades, fried union rings and much more, delicios! Then a Beef Wellington which we also approved of. Finally a dessert of fluffy cake with hot chocolate which we just managed to stuff inside leaving a clean slate! All with an excellent rosado and bread with aioli. A lunch enjoyed!

My husband and I dined here recently during a stay in Porreres. We were really impressed with the quality of the food and the presentation. The selection of wine by the glass was good too and we asked the waiter to give us a local red of his choice, which was great. Would recommend.
