“A bit run down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

A square in the centre of the shopping district which attracts a large number of people, hawkers and performance artists. There's a lively vibe to it but the square has seen better days and the cafés are not the best in the area. Worth a visit but not somewhere to linger for long.

“Uninmaginative Tourist Trap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Cheap cafe's and standard street performers among relatively boring architecture. A good reference point for navigating the city but not much else.

“Relaxing in Palma de Mallorca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

A really well appointed Square with lots of eateries and various bits of entertainment. The service at some of the restaurants was slow and indifferent but still a good place to while away the time.

“Cosmopolitan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We always seem to end up here at some point. Always interesting to people watch. Useful reference point when wandering around the town. Restaraunts fairly basic but cheap if on a budget.
