“superb food - great service”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

The food was beautifully cooked, the 2 children had half roast chickens each and they were excellent. We had paella and it was lovely, piping hot and well cooked. The service could not have been better and the staff had a genuine pride in the food they served up. We all had a really nice meal, and a nice evening

“Bar Pons”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

One of the first and oldest bar/restaurants in Cala'n Porter. An inexpensive menu, a pool and years of traditional service.

“Very Over Rated on Trip Advisor”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We went to this restaurant based on it's No2 in Cala'n Porter rating on Trip Advisor. It was without doubt the worst meal of our Holiday. My daughter ordered a Cheese Salad which was wet and poorly put together. My Son in Law ordered the Curry (Special on a Tuesday); it was dry and had to be sent back as the Rice was cold, he left 90% of it (but still got charged!). I ordered the Prawns to start, at a price tag of 16Euros - I thought that this dish might be special; it was not better that the prawns served at the Restaurant Samoa as part of the 16 Euro £ course deal! I followed with the Lamb Shoulder wich was very good, a pity that they served it with a medely of freezing veg, another meal ruined! To top it all off, the beer was not good either. All in all this was a poor effort, I really dont know how they achieved the Rating that they did. Walk past this one, there are plenty of eateries here that do a better job.

“Good meal with entertainment, good value”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

A long standing restaurant in the town which appears to be open both in and out of season and is used by the locals. The staff speak English. Food was good and plentiful and they do special offers of a three course meal with drinks for an all in price. The menu is large and varied, lamb shoulder was particularly good with a hungry son barely able to finish it due to its size. Restaurant is fairly large so there are plenty of tables to choose from but if you want to chat then sit away from the live music as it can be rather loud because it is next to the tables at the front. There are also tables outside for when the weather is a bit hotter. There is live music with singers and musicians on some evenings, people get up from the tables to dance which is all very pleasant. There is a bar on the other side of the building which has the normal big screen TV etc.
Service was a bit slow on the day we went as it was busy and there were 8 of us but we just chatted and enjoyed the music. We've been before mid season and everything has been fine.
