Expert review of Cassai

A romantic eatery with a wide-ranging menu and solid selection of Majorcan wines.

This café-cum-restaurant cleverly goes all out to offer something to suit everyone and it works. The candlelit terrace is intimate enough to provide a haven for couples in search of a bite and a glass of wine, but spacious enough for large families in search of sustenance (and child-friendly dishes) on the way back home from the beach.

Food and drink: 

Expect simple enough fare that is well done and crowd-pleasing. Think large bowls of interesting salads, pasta, pizzas, and steaks cooked on hot stones.

Recommended dishes: 

The a la piedra (hot stone) thing is a traditional Spanish approach that can be found all over the country - kids love it. For something a little more inventive I like the roast rack of lamb in herb crust, and the pan-fried salt cod topped with hot, bubbling aioli.

Ambience: 

Cassai is always busy, but with a nicely casual air.

Service: 

The staff are attentive and friendly, especially if you’ve walked in with a brood of kids.

Location: 

Despite being on the main road running through Ses Salines, the village is quiet enough for this not to be a problem.

Price advice: 

There’s something to suit most budgets here starting with pizzas for around 7.50 euros and escalating to 18.50 euros for a fillet steak topped with foie and truffles.

Tables to book: 

All tables are very nicely done (they also have an interiors business across the road), but the terrace is a lovely place to spend the evening in the summer.
