We sat in a bunker like room and had to yell to each other in order to hear over all the other guests. The waiter rushed us to place an order and was not very helpful. I had the entrecôte which was dry and we had some issues with not getting what we wanted because we didn't get time to... More

If your looking for a lively setting and fantastic tapas this is worth a visit. Food is excellent, served fast by knowledgable lively waiting staff. Not a fancy setting and everything seems authentic. One review says its a tourist trap but most of the people when we visited were locals. Highly recommend a visit but booking is essential if you...

Bad tapas and bad food in general, good music...... Hard to get a table at 2130 so worth reserving but I would not go again.

We tried to make a reservation but did not manage to reach them by phone. When arriving later the same evening the restaurant was full but we managed to get a seat by the bar. And that was for the best! We were served very fast and could observe the crazy hectic tempo of a Spanish tapas restaurant. What an... More

If you are looking for a nice place with Spanish flair which is authentic La Boveda is the place to go. It is not like a fancy restaurant, but more a relatively simple and relaxed place. You get A good variety of Spanish food and generally a nice atmosphere.

I have been here a couple of times so when a group of 11 friends visited Palma this was the place to take them for a traditional Mallorcan tapas evening. If you can't decide what you want then ask the waiter to bring you a selection - they will keep it coming until you stay 'stop'. You can throw in... More

Loved the barrels, the spanish tiles, the ham, the potato omelette and the cava! Not too busy when we went at Easter, so no complaints on service.

High ceiling and lots of period detail with added local colour. Busy all the time, get in early to get in the big main room. An offshot cellar room at the rear is the alternative (we wouldnt have wanted that) cosy but less atmospheric. Food is big on taste, fresh and typical of local menus. we had Variado Marinaro..4 sorts... More
