Featured on One Off PlacesAlastair Sawday's Special Places to stay in Spain

We have a brilliant range of restaurants 10 to 15 minutes from either house in the villages and surrounding countryside. Also, we have a great selection in the harbour village of Porto Petro, or within the resort of Cala d'Or and the nearby marina.

Guests can walk very easily from C'an Bassa Coll to the nearby Campo Restaurant (+34 971 164047) where children are very welcome and you can dine outside on the terrace.

From Es Pins, another easy walk reaches Alqueria Blanca where the Italian 'Bacco' Restaurante – our all time favourite - provides great food and a great patron Jacobpo with shaded courtyard dining (+34971164285).

Before or afterwards, the nearby 'Bar Nou' offers a large selection of drinks in the village square, and 'Sa Placa' serves tapas next door in the square (+34971164022).

Most restaurants welcome children. Prices are similar to UK. Say around £40.00 per head including wine.

There are more expensive restaurants like El Colon, in Porto Colom, ( +34971824783) but the food here is worth a little more, and the ambience on the terrace or interior is casually elegant.

Our same comments relate to the smart Sa Llotja in Cala d'Or( +34971740090) and also Sa Llotja Porto Colom has good food and great views across the marina ( +34 971825165). Both these restaurants are very well run with great food and service.

For steak fans Bona Taula in Calonge with a great bbq and local atmosphere is an old favourite (34971167147).

In Porto Petro our favourite is Noorai where you can dine with your toes in the water and enjoy great fish ( +34971740090) . Our house book lists them all. The culinary choice is huge and so is the choice of atmosphere. It is essential to book in high season. All local restaurants now accept credit cards.

Dishes we recommend include Trampo Salad, Fresh Fish, Tumbet, Pimientos de Padron. Barbecued Meats. Chicken. Salads. There are many more of course... enjoy and let us know your favourites..
