Expert review of Port Petit

Smart, modern Mediterranean restaurant with lovely harbour views.

It can be tricky to eat well in Cala d’Or so this place is a bit of a bonus. Situated in the middle of the marina with a wonderful terrace, it is a top spot for a long, lazy lunch before ambling back to the hotel.

Food and drink: 

I prefer the lunch menu (good value and tasty) to any of the tasting menus (expensive and overly fussy), which features nicely executed dishes like beetroot soup with horseradish and mackerel escabeche and cod confit with sundried tomatoes and bacon.

Ambience: 

Expect to dine with lots of boat people and the odd landlubber quaffing wine and generally having a good time. I’m not wild about the interior, which seems ever so slightly plasticy to me, but you can’t knock the terrace

Service: 

The service needs attention: it fluctuates wildly between courteous and surly.

Location: 

Port Petit is right in the middle of the Cala Llonga marina.

Price advice: 

The a la carte dishes are expensive. Choose wisely, however, and this place can be good value. The lunch menu costs 21.50 euros plus 8 per cent tax for three courses, and there are three tasting menus (split by size) ranging from 35-60 euros plus tax. The house wine is reasonable too.

Tables to book: 

Choose a nice day and opt for the terrace.
