good food and service

really good food and service, not so easy to find but when you do, it´s Worth it. You get recommendations of the waiter how to order if you like to much or Little less. Very nice interior in old style. So there is much to look at. Buon apetito.

Friendly staff, great food, cosy atmosphere. The staff are the most friendly people you can find in Spain. We ate assorted tapas, where each dish was better than the previous one. They explained what we are eating and how to eat it. The interior has so much soul an passion in it that you just don't want to leave the... More

"Lonely Planet" and Tripadvisor reviewers suggested this one to us. A few steps down from the street, the restaurant is a cellar-type room with gothic arches, plaster walls, and timber-supported ceiling, which all feels right for a "taberna" in the Old City. The place was pretty empty when we lunched there on a grey Tuesday in May, which is too... More

Stopped off here for lunch with my mum after we had seen it recommended in one of the tour guide books and we definitely weren't disappointed. The freshly prepared tapas was delicious (and at such good prices) and the atmosphere in there really topped off our meal. The restaurant is tucked away from the main touristy streets of Palma and...

My friend and I went pass by chance and decided to go in. The assorted tapas there won't let you be disappointed.

Very well prepared tapas, all fresh and with a touch of innovation , you have to ask the owner (Ritchie) for the daily sprecials. Good relation in price/product. The service might be somewhat slow, however, the food is worth a visit. If the owner feels like, he even opens his private celler-bar. A casual place off the beaten track.

First, when we arrived, they told us we couldn't come in with our dog (a tiny non-allergic dog in a bag). Then when we had dropped the dog off at the hotel and had finally been seated, the waitor was really rude to us. I don't think this is ok! The food wasn't that bad though, but all in all... More

Quite a good selection of Tapas and all of them very tasty. At least Saturdays night you will need to make a reservation, as it was full.

For some reason, this place did not show up on our searches, except for direct search, but we tried it out and was not disappointed. Had really great tapas, great wine and good service.
