Tasty Tapas

The go to tapas spot in Palma. Food is brought quickly and is very tasty. Service is attentive and the atmosphere is vibey. Don't go here if you are looking for quiet. Go here if you want to be part of the bustle that is Parma in season. Tapas at its best!

Each time we have visited it's been borderline chaos, and in a good way. This place is busy for a reason, it's good! We have tried a wide range of dishes, ordered more than we have received and never left disappointed. Try the rabbit, the meatballs and the pork chops, all delicious. You could walk past or assume it's a... More

What a place. We read about this in a travel review and thought lets go. We made the trip from Magaluf just to attend. Me and my partner ordered 6 plates and some drinks. This is the real deal. Awesome food. Moules Marinière is top of the list. The bruschetta on arrival was very tasty and set the mouth watering.... More

A very good restaurant serving tapas and offer a daily menu ("platos del dia") with traditional Spanish and local delicacies. We ordered the "platos del dia" but since we were not sure, we asked for "media racion" (half portion) which allowed us to try a few dishes. Service is good, some waiters do speak English but that is no always... More

We visited for lunch after a walk around old Palma. Not been here since September 2008 and it was every bit as good as remembered. Great tapas-style dishes and the house red is an good Faustino. Hoping to go back before another 7 years pass! Excellent place

Went for dinner and ordered tapas. It didn't take long to serve us . No wonder, behind the service area were three men pretending to be chefs and at least three microwaves. All what they had to do is to get the old leftover tapas and PING it in the microwaves. The results were as you would expect. Yucky crap.... More

This place is always crowded and very loud, especially the area on the left. However, the food is delicious!!! It is served very fast. Frit mallorqui is a must try if you like seafood! I would definitely come back there again.

It's a great Tapas Bar - always crowded - even when other restaurants are empty. The food is authentic, the service is attentive and quick - and the flair of this stone cellar ist just great. Thumbs up - please continue like this. Always a pleasure. The signature dishes are "Gambas al Ajillo" and "Pimientos de Padron" - both are... More

Description

Sa Volta and La Cueva were two adjoining Tapas bars owned and run by the Nieto brothers. (I think their parents established them.) Sa Volta was TINY but they have now connected the two bars and they are packed out every night. The food is incredible. The service is excellent.
