A pretty and stylish decor can never justify this rude, bad-mannered arrogant staff. For the ridiculously expensive prices you will have to pay in that place, you may afford many other nice cocktails in any of the bars of the streets around... served with a smile! :-)

Noticed on Trip Advisor that people are getting confused between Abaco and Abacanto. The original was Abaco near to the cathedral in the centre of Palma and Abacanto is on the outskirts of Palma in an industrial estate. If you like Abaco then you will certainly like this larger and more surreal version based in a large senorial house with... More

What a fabulous room....while in Palma one must take in this lovely mansion. Ive seen other reviewers critical of the prices but its a BIG cocktail and if you order a second they will carry you out of the place.

Yes, 15euro is expensive for one drink, with a total bill of 172 on drinks our jaws did drop - however it is a mythical place which cannot be described as a bar. It was only on leaving we noticed the 'prohobido' sign with a camera...... we can upload photos soon as long as we dont get sued. The old... More

Been to Abaco yesterday....it was a very nice and cosy place, but the price you pay for a cocktail is not in line with the quality. The waiter was not one you expect from that kind of bars.... We ordered a simple daiquiri cocktail and it was so horrible we didn't even drink it! Just paid without any tip and... More

Loved Abaco - very relaxing to sit on the terrace and listen to beautiful classical music with a background of birdsong and the sound of water. At 17 euros for a coffee, a beer and a bowl of olives, it was well worth it. I hope to return.

The patio here is very romantic, toilets very spacious and comfortable and building very interesting, but that's about it. They insist on playing Mozart all evening, which is hardly conducive to a good evening, the service is a bit non-descript which is not what you'd expect from such a place (staff are grumpy and could do with new uniforms). Whoever... More

The Abaco Bar is everything the guide books promise, and more. My jaw dropped when we walked through the door. This is not just a place to drop off for a drink, it is An Experience. Linger for an hour over a cocktail, preferably with someone you love. Yes, the drinks are expensive but so worth it. The place is... More

Yes, it's what i suggest you to do. The place is interesting only under the aesthetic point of view. So it's enough to get in, have a look around (and you are allow to do that) and say goodnight. Prices are absurd: 15 euro for any drink, the music is classical, the birds are in jail.
