The restaurants’ history
It was built in the middle of the 19th century by Bartolomé Ensenat Esterlich, a professional fisherman and resident of Pollensa. He acquired the land from the owners of Boquer, who told him: “tomeu, fence-in whatever you want”, because in those days the seaside didn’t have any value whatsoever. The young fisherman made a small construction where to keep his boat and fenced-in the land right up until the sea front. Slowly but surely he made the construction bigger until turning it into his home, which had a small allotment and chickens which ran around on the sand.
Bartolomé married Petra, and they had three children; Ramon, Francisca and Antonia. With the pass of time the Port turned into a small fishermen’s colony. In those days doors didn’t have any locks on them, children would play in the street and the milkman used to walk around with his goats for people to buy fresh milk straight from them.
