The restaurant, one of the oldest in Soller (since 1860), is recommended and recognized by several generations (grandparents, children and grandchildren). Classic cut, simple, elaborated with correct and native materials. Fresh fish, paellas and typical Mallorcan dishes cooked in the classic way.
It is mentioned in many publications, including the Michelin Guide.
