Expert review of Bar Nou

A friendly, family-run eatery serving a great home-cooked paella.

This authentic, no-frills eatery in the heart of Pollensa town is a welcome antidote to more touristy places – it is a taste of Majorca the way it used to be.

Food and drink: 

It can be surprisingly difficult to get your hands on authentic paella in Spain, which is where Bar Nou comes into its own. Cooked by mama, this is far from the yellow-dyed rice of tourist joints. Expect plump grains of rice, caramelised soccorat (the crispy bit at the bottom), chunks of cuttlefish and proper on-the-bone pork and chicken.

Ambience: 

Bar Nou has a reassuringly local atmosphere, and a simple, shaded terrace. It is best enjoyed when the sun is shining.

Service: 

Run by various members of a big, extended family, service is efficient and particularly welcoming of return visitors.

Location: 

On the back streets of Pollensa it doesn’t have much by way of views or décor, but isn’t a bad spot for watching the world go by.

Price advice: 

The food is good value. The lunch menu costs 10 euros for three courses (not including wine). Expect to spend 15 euros or so on fresh fish, 12.50 euros per portion of paella.
