We chose the 'menu' and were pleased and satisfied. We added the house wine and things were even better. We would return.

The Es Congre is a large restaurant that looks out towards the castle. It is clean comfortable and does a good pizza which after two or three days of gastronomic adventure is all you want.

As a solo female traveller I found the staff in this restaurant almost dismissive. They did not present me with the set menu and seemed to disapprove when I asked for it. The bread was almost thrown on the table. This is the first restaurant where I have not left a top as the experience was so poor I could... More

We chose it for lunch while strolling on the promenade, because it was looking better than the other restaurants. Unfortunately, it was terrible. We chose some rose wine, and it was tasting like water with raspberry syrup. As entree we chose potatoes with garlic, but it turned out to be a sad dish of a few cold boiled potatoe slices... More

We ate at this restaurant 3 times during the week and we enjoyed every single meal. The portion sizes were very generous and the quality of the food was very good. Excellent service (all the waiters were very friendly and attentive) and such good value for the money. The veal entracote was particularly good as was the chicken salad with... More

We dined her once and enjoyed it. The portions are huge and don't ask for a large beer unless you can drink a lt of the stuff in one almighty glass. It's in a good position on the front and very reasonably priced.

We had lunch at Es Congre...fabulous position right opposite the beach. Friendly smiling waiting staff, excellent Tapas dishes and the... More

Decided to give the place a try as we had seen that it was busy most days so took the jump. The staff were very friendly and helpful me and my son chose the prawn paella and wife and daughter veggie paella both arrived and they were huge. We honestly thought that we wouldn't eat all of it and we... More
