Expert review of Sa Sìnia

Small, but serious fish restaurant in Porto Colom.

Wood panels, portholes and polished brass give this place a pleasingly nautical air. Proof of the quality of the food is in the clientele; mostly locals fanatical about spanking fresh fish and seafood.

Food and drink: 

Since opening in 1969 the menu has expanded to incorporate a few international classics. I’m thinking 1970s-style duck breast in orange sauce and the like. Ignore all this, because it’s the catch of the day that is spectacular here. Go with whatever looks good on the board, or tuck into some traditional dishes like squid ‘al estilo antiguo’ (stewed the old-fashioned way), or an arroz negre (rice cooked in cuttlefish ink and served with a healthy dollop of aioli).

Ambience: 

It's got a delightfully intimate feel, and, being off the beaten path works in your favour; they are so delighted to be ‘discovered’ that the welcome is big and generous.

Service: 

The staff are friendly and enthusiastic. Feel free to ask for recommendations and advice on what to order.

Location: 

Sa Sìnia is on the side of the road in Porto Colom overlooking the small fisherman’s port. It also has a small terrace.

Price advice: 

Meals are great value for fish of this quality. Expect to spend 35-40 euros for a couple of courses with wine.

Tables to book: 

When in Spain I generally prefer to sit outside. This is one exception. Soak up the atmosphere and chatter of one of the dining rooms instead.
