We followed the recommendation of friends. Excellent meat, great service, and good selection of wines. The price correct, definitely a very good choice.

This is one of the best restaurants so far in Palma. I've to admit; if you come to Palma, please pay this restaurant a visit, as everything is great about it! Even the prices are great; although you'll find this restaurant under the "$$$$" bill.mrk. it's still cheaper than most restaurants downtown or at the bar street! We hope you'll... More

Absolutely fantastic evening... Made to feel very special with the several discretionary appetisers... Meat meat meat but not in that overpowering way... In that really tasty flavoursome meaty juicy way. Fantastic personal service. Lovely bottle of Malbec. Well worth seeking out... Maybe better to go later than our 830 table but hey... We were hungry and couldn't wait. Not Bolixe... More

We sought out this restaurant after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor, and made a reservation for 8:30 over the internet. 8:30 is when the restaurant opens, and when we got there we had the whole place to ourselves - which we enjoyed - but if you prefer a larger crowd it is best to come later in the evening as...

Friends have been telling me for years about how good Argentinean beef was and now finally I have tried it. Mallorca is a long way to go for Argentinean steak ;) Asador Bolixe Cocina is located just a few blocks from the central core of Palma de Mallorca but easily in walking distance from the popular shops and attractions.

Again we trusted tripadvisor and went looking for this restaurant. Took a bit of looking and we walked past first then noticed it was where we were looking for. We ordered steak and it was delicious, well cooked delivered plain with no gimmicks. Good service, the night felt very Spanish.

Set at the back of town (probably best to grab one of the many inexpensive cabs). Modern style restaurant with a focus on steaks but with a couple of fish options as well. Overall we enjoyed the meal but to be honest had hoped for a little more. Three of us went for the steak option and found the food... More

Found this restaurant through Tripadvisor. Somewhat difficult to find (we walked from Pl Espana), anonymous front, but very friendly service and delicious meat, cooked to perfection. Meal served argentinian style, ie basically meat only and few condiments, but the meat was enough for us. Delicious cured ham served for starter. Good wine. We went back a second time during our...

We found the restaurant through Tripadvisor. It's conveniently close to the railway and bus stations. The restaurant is not in an obvious place but keep walking: it is worth finding it. The food is great and the service is super friendly. Also the price is nice. We had a good Mallorca experience!
