This is just around the corner from view but it is worth searching out. No outside seating but large windows and high ceilings and a very warm and relaxing atmosphere. Friendly staff and quick service. We had the local wine for 2 euros a glass and it was very good. We only ordered two things but as they were combo... More

My daughter and I came here for the 2nd time. We booked early however, they had no record of it - they quickly found us a table anyway! We were seated in the vaulted area at the back of the restaurant - the atmosphere was excellent, the service was very good and the food was sublime - no complaints at... More

We keep coming back here every time we are in Palma, so why only three stars? You really need to know what you are getting before coming here. Plus side Great tapas, very traditional, the dates wrapped in bacon are just incredible. Very buzzy atmosphere, full of locals and you get a taste of the real Spain. Wine list is... More

We went here to grab a late lunch. Not our first time. It is very good and better when busy and noisy. The food is very good and overall not too pricey. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Palma and we would go back.

It was supposed to be our third visit to a restaurant that we remembered with joy. We finally succeded to arrive within their narrow opening hours, and they had available space at the bar or by the barrels. We chose the barrel, and a grumpy waitor gave us a dirty menue. We had tried so hard to come there, and... More

I have been coming here for quite bit over a decade and while not as local as it used to be (read taken over by tourists) it's still a great place. Food is almost as good as it used to be. atmosphere is lively and buzzing.

We dropped one late one evening just for some wine and delicious iberico ham, but enjoyed the buzzing atmosphere so much that we decided to come back. We were not let down - oh no!! We enjoyed a long list of varied and delicious tapas dishes. Will in particular remember the mushroom dishes as well as the entrecôte with blue... More

One of the best places to eat in Palma - if not the whole island! Atmospheric, lively and authentic this busy place can get a bit touristy if you time it wrong but that's just because it's so damn good! Best place to sit (as always) is at the bar, or one one of the barrel tables near it. There's... More
