Great tapas, great evening

Glad we made a reservation as this place is lively and quickly fills up. The tapas menu is extensive and everything we had was good, especially the Belota ham and the clams & white beans. The house wine is perfectly drinkable and the service was good considering how busy this place is. Well worth... read more

Doors open at 6pm so get their earlier and queue. It's so worth it and tapas tastes even more delicious balancing on stools round an old sherry barrel. We always ask our waiters recommendation and try plates from the special board. Service is face paced and hectic and their food exceptional. Popular with tourists but more predominantly Spanish families especially... More

They know how to do it. There are so many Tapas places in Palma, and we have tried quite over over the last few trips there. Some are better than others ... We have never had a bad meal at La Boveda. Try it, you can`t go wrong.

We followed the advise of tripadvisor and unfortunatly we were not very impressed. We have been to much better tapas restaurants, both atmosphere, service and menu. Boveda feels as if it knows to well that it will fill up every night without doing it's best. So many Fantastic tapas places in Palma and Boveda does not live upp to expectations.

We heard lots of good experiences about this restaurant, so we were surprised to have the experience we did. We pre-emptively made a booking and turned up before the time. The staff and management ignored my husband and I, aswell as the 4 other couples waiting for their booking. Apparently you needn't bother booking at all, when you can just... More

We walked in without a reservation, sat at the bar and ordered about 7 dishes, everything was amazing. We washed it down with a nice bottle of cava. The guy who served us was really helpful and friendly. The atmosphere was great, everybody was happy they had a guy playing a guitar and singing. It was so good we eat... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Palma. First impressions aren't great, but the food is really unbeatable. During the summer, you need to get there before it opens and queue. Couples need to be prepared to sit at the counter. It's an absolute must to visit this restaurant!
