“Unexpectedly great food. Lovely relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

Situated poolside in the middle if Som Bou Garden apartments complex. We enjoyed two evenings at the restaurant. Paella on Thursday night was very nice indeed, cooked outside in the big pan. Lots of locals after 9pm, always a good sign.

Serving chips and the usual stuff mostly it seems during the day, we were blown away by the gorgeous tapas, chicken, avocado and prawn salad, home made meatballs and fois gras on toast.

Certainly one of the best meals we have had anywhere on holiday.

Don't be put off if its quiet, it will fill up and you will enjoy this place, I promise.

“Good value but lacking customers”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

Didn't have a bad meal in many of the Son Bou restaurants. Cafeteria Son Bou was quiet every time we passed though. We had a very good value "Menu del Dia" one evening but it lacked atmosphere due to lack of customers. Staff were good, food hit the spot and the the bill was a welcome surprize.

“Son Bou”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

Good paella on a Thursday although it won't be ready when they claim it will be ready. The bouncy castle they blow up for the kids is great but could do with some safety mats on the ground
