"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... read 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.

Just finished a dinner at this restaurant. Expectations were raised because of the environment and the decorations. Walked in to see if reservations were needed, we are staying around the corner. When we arrived we were seated on the upper floor. Serving was swift and good. Ordered 5 different tapas and some bread. The first 4 arrived within 20 minutes... More

Highly recommend this place for gourmet tapas! Their list includes around 30 tapas plus some mains. We had 7 tapas to share, all very delicious and innovative but simple. Could recommend especially the grilled artichokes and aubergines with honey! Great value for the quality of food as well - its worth finding the way through the narrow streets of old... More
