This small restaurant in the heart of Palma is known for its clever combination of Argentinean and Mediterranean flavours. The extensive menu is based on the freshest natural ingredients from the market. Perfectly roasted meat, which is some of the best on the island make this restaurant one of the most sought after in the capital. The wine list is highly recommended and includes many international wines. The modern and minimalist décor is functional and stylish. It offers excellent value for money and has good parking facilities.

Found this on a walk around and didn't expect too much. However the staff were funny, in a good way and the food was authentic, good value and did the job. What more do you want.

Having read other reviews we decided that this restaurant was unmissable...and enjoyed it so much we returned three days later. The restaurant doesn't open in the evening until 8.30 and on our first visit we were very ready for our meal, arriving just after opening. We were welcomed with a vermouth aperitif while we studied the menu. Deciding to share... More

Was not expecting much but boy was I pleasantly surprised! It's close to the main railway station, but slightly off the beaten track. The restaurant is nicely decorated with not too many tables. The staff are attentive and friendly. The cuts of beef are generous and perfectly cooked. We had an Argentine Malbec with our Argentinian Steaks. Both complimented each... More

My partner and I went to Bolixe last night and spent a wonderful evening filled with incredible food, impeccable service and great atmosphere. My partner went for the big 400 Bife steak which was an entrecote cut and was cooked to perfection. I went with a Brazilian cut and could not have been happier! Our server was so happy to... More

We really enjoyed Bolixe. It is a bit out of the way, but worth finding. The decor is modern and trendy. The steaks were fabulous. What made this a special evening was first class service from Leo. First, great guidance explaining the menu and providing insight on the various offerings. Good recommendation for the wine selection also. The nice touch... More

We had a really splendid lunch here. On the set menu there are just two choices for each of the first two courses, but several choices of dessert. These were all beautifully prepared and served, and for just 11.50 euro you get three courses + bread & drink … plus an extra glass of freshly squeezed fruit juice after the... More

We went last night looking for a good place to eat and we found this one: what a great surprise! Despise the local was full with people, the waiter was solicitous. The steaks arrived in no time taking into account the crowd in the restaurant. The meat was delicious, and the chimichurri was so tasty. Recommendable

Argentina meets Palma and the marriage is made in heaven. We came here after reading other trip advisor recommendations and we were not disappointed. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the cheese wow the cheese. Provolone for starters and then cheese covered steak proved to be my match but it was worth it. So good and worth the walk.
