the museum is a must... very nice contemporary architecture married to the historical walls... always nice temporary exhibitions and the house collections are wonderful as well if you love the modern aerea. The terrace si superb, but i must say, the restaurant is over evaluated. Looks great, but with all the mistakes of fashionable places: food is better looking than... More

We sat there outside at the wall for a drink with olives and nuts and had a great view over the really nice harbour of Palma de Mallorca. The Mojitos were okay, but not so good as we hoped. The service was a little bit chaotic. It is a nice place for sunset, but they should improve their service.

We enjoyed our first meal here on arrival in Palma, on their sunny stylish terrace. The cocktails were prepared excellently and our salads were fresh and delicious!

We have been visiting Es Baluard bar since it opened. It had a chill out ambience with spectacular view and unique aspect as part of the gallery . We visited the bar a few days ago and found faded , old chairs, a totally disinterested waiter who appeared to be doing us a favour by just turning up to take... More

Having been coming to Palma since the mid-eighties we only ate here last August for the first time and were really looking forward to repeating the experience. Imagine our surprise and disappointment to discover that it has CLOSED DOWN. The only positive outcome of this is that the Chef is now at Forn St. Joan - our favourite restaurant in... More

We wanted to eat here, because the patio looked amazing. It's basically right on top of an ancient citadel, on the old corner of the city walls. You get a view of the sea, the castle on the hills to the west of Palma, and the cathedral on the other side. And to further enhance the experience, you can even... More

We have walked past this restaurant, hundreds of times over the past twenty years, and have even stayed at a nearby hotel. But this was our first visit. Can't imagine why we left it so long. As always we sat inside (the older we get the more intolerant we become of smoking in eating areas). Surroundings, service, staff knowledge and... More

My wife and I celebrated our Silver Wedding in Palma in June this year and we booked Es Baluard for a meal with 22 quests travelling from Edinburgh. What a brilliant choice it turned out to be. The table they set and the food they served was simply magnificent and Joan (owner/chef), Luis (restaurant manager) and the rest of the... More

FRESH and DELICIOUS An excellent menu of fresh produce, Suggest you have the prawns with mango and hake for mains, The terrine and stuffed tomatoes. Eat indoors for a much cooler atmosphere. Take the aperitif on the terrace.

Staying in the surroundings of Palma for a week, we decided to look for a place with food and service above the regular touristic restaurants. We found this place via seraches on the Internet, so we booked a table before leaving from Sweden. The food as well as the service was very good and the prices was not according to... More
