Named after its Hamelin-born chef/patron Roland Schulte, this back-street Porto Cristo restaurant opened in May 2011 and is rightly regarded as the port’s best.

From its terrace (the restaurant is above street level), there’s a glimpse of the marina between two large buildings, but this is a place for well-presented international cuisine with a creative touch and good service, rather than views.
The elegant modern interior has contemporary art on the dove grey walls, loose-weave blinds to allow in light (but not views of the opposite buildings) and pleasant lighting. Smooth vocal jazz played quietly in the background during our visit.
The à-la-carte menu (lunch and dinner) changes seasonally, with a few favourites retained – such as the Roland’s Special steak – and some daily specials. They source fresh fish from the nearby harbour. Portions are generous and a meal begins with a complimentary appetiser (ours was a small cup of silky sweet potato soup).
Mallorcan and Spanish wines include a few fine examples, including the 2009 Mauro Terreus from Castilla y León. Maître d’ David López ensures careful attentive service.
We love: Fresh fish landed just around the corner.
