Expert review of Stay Restaurant

A smart, sophisticated fish restaurant on the port.

When it comes to the full package: stylish surrounds, beautiful views and good food, Stay is probably the best restaurant on the Puerto Pollenca. It is worth at least one visit I’d say.

Food and drink: 

It has to be said that the menu here is so lengthy that making a decision on what you actually want to eat can be a challenge. That said, it does offer something to please everyone and the location on the jetty makes it feel that bit special.

Recommended dishes: 

I like my fish and seafood simply grilled, although there are plenty of fussier, heavily sauced dishes for richer palettes. The turbot is always good, as is the caldereta de bogavante Menorca (a luxurious stew of rice and Menorcan lobster). Their quail salad with apple-herb vinaigrette is also excellent if you just want a light but luxurious bite.

Ambience: 

It is rather stark and just a little cold inside, but this place was really built for dining al fresco. A large wrap-around deck ensures there’s room for everyone to get a long, lazy lunch in the sun.

Service: 

These guys run a tight ship. Think smart and efficient service, but usually with a smile.

Location: 

The restaurant is on a jetty jutting into the bay.

Price advice: 

With several menu options, far and away the best deal is the menu del día for 33.10 euros which includes three courses and a bottle of wine. Fish is pricey (38 euros for the caldereta de bogavante for example), but on the whole it's fair for what you get.

Tables to book: 

Unless it’s howling a gale and pouring with rain, I'd sit on the terrace every time.

Other useful branches: 

There are two other similar style, and equally reliable, restaurants - Can Cuarassa (Alcudia) and Sa Llotja (Porto Colom).
