We love staying at El Guia. Restaurant is wonderful, breakfasts are creative and service is excellent. The location is perfect next to the Ferrocarril station and a couple blocks to the square.

The restaurant, one of the oldest in Soller (since 1860), is recommended and recognized by several generations (grandparents, children and grandchildren). Classic cut, simple, elaborated with correct and native materials. Fresh fish, paellas and typical Mallorcan dishes cooked in the classic way. It is mentioned in many publications, including the Michelin Guide.
