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!!
