“Excellent restaurant and decent prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

As a family of five, with small children, we were well talen vare of, despite the fact that the restaurant is probably mainly intended for romantic couples and friends.

The food was excellent. I especially liked the Gaspacho soup. The service was excellent, both attentive and quick.

The prices are good compared to both the quality of food and central location.

“Simple dishes, nothing exciting.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Ordered a couple of glasses of house rosado whilst we chose our lunch from the menu - nice wine.
Went for a half-plata (average size sideplate) of Iberico ham, which was delicious, as very well it might be for 12E. Bread and olives accompaniment was nice as well. I had the calamares next and my wife tried the tomato with mozerrella cheese (8.50E). Both were fine.
We also tried the cod 'taco', which I found rather mushy and tasteless and the patatas bravas which I wish we hadn't bothered - wedges of potato slathered in a mayonnaise/ketchup concoction.
All in all, not one of our better dining experiences and at 60E a bit of a rip off!

“High-end restaurant with very fair prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This restaurant is hidden away in a little alley in the centre of Palma. We went here one night for a quick meal. I had baby lamb chops with straw potatoes and my partner had risotto. Both meals were delicious and very well prepared. I had a glass of local white wine that was so good I kind of regretted I didn't buy the whole bottle.

The waiters were very attentive and friendly. The restaurant is classy and beautifully decorated - I would say it is ideal for couples, friends and adults in general (not small children).

The tables are rustic and unique hardwood planks and the walls are covered with wine bottles. Very beautiful and New York-ish.

The prices are not extremely cheap, but very reasonable. The wines are well-chosen with many (great) local wines among them.

Will definitely recommend!

“Superb food, excellent wine list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

La bodeguilla is mentioned in the Michelin guide for an excellent wine list. And the wine list is truly well selected and extensive. However, the food is superb (the French Michelin reviewers would never recommend a place with less than excellent food). Starters are magnificent (oyster, tempura fish and more) and the main courses are superb (the suckling lamb shoulder is otherworldly). Service is good, but could still be improved. After 10 days in Mallorca and visiting most of top Tripadvisor places and two Michelin Star restaurants, this is the best value/best experience among peers. Don't miss this place.
