Although we only stopped in for a small lunch and a coffee we were still impressed. Located in a side street adjacent to the magnificent Calvari Steps in the center of Pollensa, it provides a wonderfully authentic feel as we were seated outside in a narrow side street looking towards a chapel at one end, and a small square at the other. This cafe and restaurant provides a Fresh contemporary cuisine with a Scottish twist.
It’s clear that there’s a Scottish twist alright, looking at the cafe menu there’s a full Scottish breakfast on the menu including Haggis, but that’s not all. Upstairs the cosy looking Argyll Room offers evening meals surrounded by some spectacular Colin Prior prints and in the toilets photos of thistles can be found on the walls.
So where does this Scottish flavour come from? A lovely Glasgow accent welcomed us as we sat down, the owners are Scottish and so is the Chef and his waitress girlfriend (my advice is to take them on next season if the owners are reading!). Checking out the evening menu also adds to the Scottish flavour – Cock-a-leekie soup, Salmon, Haggis, Clapshot, Lamb and Cranachan give the feel of home, fused with a very meditteranean menu.
We had home baked baps (many jokes were on the table before ordering) with Serrano Ham and grated Parmesan on one and Roasted Peppers with melted Goats Cheese. Both tasted wonderful and were followed by some lovely coffees.
It’s a lovely restaurant and well worth a look if you’re in Pollensa, and my advice is that you definitely should be. Next time we’re there for an evening meal.
