Description: Sa Cova is a traditional Chinese home-cooking restaurant, non-formal and yet elegant. We take time to cook each portion from scratch so we do encourage our clients to share dishes and to not be in a hurry! The menu includes specialties such as Cantonese Roast Duck, seaweed salad, homemade dumplings and wontons, Charsiu Chicken wings, Hoisin ribs, Cantonese stirfried noodles, Beijing Spicy noodles, Spicy eggplant, Sechuan style Shrimps, Xi-hu style fish and various Chinese stews. On Sundays during the winter there's Chinese Fondue/Hotpot, with meat, seafood and vegetables that you cook in a homemade broth. Desserts include homemade ice-cream, creme brulee and cake/pie, all freshly made by us. Tables can be reserved until 21:00hrs, for later meals it is only on a walk-in basis. Please allow at least 24hrs for email or facebook reservations. Thank you

Who would believe it? A wonderful, authentic Chinese restaurant in the centre of Deia. We had a terrific, simple, tasty and extraordinarily inexpensive meal. Our hostess was also quite terrific.

It was strange at first to decide to try a Chinese restaurant while visiting Mallorca, but it was a fantastic decision! The food is delicious, fresh, and flavorful. We shared most of the menu among the table to get a taste of everything. We wished we had made reservations for a second dinner there during our stay! Definitely the best... More

This one is a must and you will need to book! Shared everything between 6 of us and it was all so delicious if we could have eaten it all again we would have! Booked again before we left

We visited Deia and were able to book this restaurant the last day before it closed for August vacation - we rearranged other reservations to accommodate this and boy were we glad that we did! We eat at "authentic" Chinese restaurants frequently. This is the absolute best Chinese restaurant we have ever been to - highly recommend!

Not the best, most authentic Chinese food as other reviews suggest, but then we were in Mallorca! It was all good though and well worth a visit if you want something different and reasonably priced. Only downside was that there was no outdoor seating to take in the spectacular views of Deia.

We left a message to book a table for 6 on a Sunday lunch, and were delighted to receive a call back within 30 minutes to confirm our booking. The menu is small but perfectly formed and our table sampled 8 of the 12 dishes on offer, all excellent! Possibly the best noodles I have ever eaten! Cooked perfectly with... More

We spent just over two weeks and ate here twice. We booked the first one by e-mail from the UK having read the reviews. It's a small, very welcoming room with no Chinese feel which was nice. The service couldn't have been friendlier or more efficient. It had seemed a little counterintuitive to go to a Chinese restaurant in Majorca... More

This really was a fantastic restaurant.I found it on the Monday morning when I went for a stroll from our lovely cottage, by the coastal footpath. I noticed it was closed on the Wednesday and Thursday nights. We were leaving on Friday, so reservation for Tuesday it had to be. We arrived for a 9pm reservation and found ourselves in... More

Booked in advance based on Trip Advisor reviews and had two great meals here. Everything is cooked to order and although I am not a great fan of UK chinese restaurant food this was something a world better. Fabulous starters and mains and service excellent.

We chose Sa Cova after reading all the Trip Advisor reviews and have to say they are all absolutely spot on. We made our reservation via email and Odine could not have been more helpful. The menu is not large but this shows a freshness of ingredients and cooking. We chose the seaweed salad and chicken wings which were both... More
