“Sangria, Seafood and Service Make Mallorca Special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Mallorca, which is in easy walking distance from most of the hotels in downtown Cleveland, is friendly and fun, the food is terrific, and the service is outstanding. The menu is broad and deep, but there's hardly a reason to open it beyond making sure that you try the Chorizo de la Planca appetizer. Otherwise, just order a pitcher of the homemade sangria, take advantage of the waiter's help in choosing among the daily specials, and enjoy.

“Great Paella with Fabulous Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

This restaurant always delivers great food with unbelievably attentive service. The fresh fish options are extensive and portions are more than generous. I promised a colleague that he would enjoy the paella and once again Mallorca let me keep that promise. I have enjoyed wonderful grouper, salmon, rabbit as well as the paella and there are options on the menu for all guests. The service is top notch with all wait staff ensuring timely delivery of drinks, appetizers, salads and entrees. You will be pleased to bring out of town visitors to this establishment - they will be satisfied and happy and you won't break the bank.

“Very good food at a very good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Two daily specials: one grilled barramundi, one baked salmon stuffed with a mash including crab, shrimp, scallops. Sides: fresh steamed vegetables (plain), yellow Spanish rice, unsalted homemade potato chips. Both meals were $14. The barramundi was excellent. It could not have been better prepared. Delicious. The salmon was fine, but was weak on all of the seafood flavors that should have been in the dish, beginning with the salmon. I wouldn't have had a clue what was in the stuffing had I not been told. The interior of the restaurant was very nice. The high-energy, loud, and somewhat melodramatic Spanish waiter contributed to the feeling of a somewhat exotic/foreign experience.

“Excellent Food, Great Dining Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Great Service paired with Great Food makes this a perfect dining destination! Seriously, this is a must-try if you are looking for dining location in the downtown Cleveland area. The Sangria is awesome, best I have ever had. The food (I had orange roughy) was delicious. When your main entree comes, they also bring your table extremely generous servings of rice, vegetables, homemade potato chips for your table to share, and even an after-dinner shot (almond type - it was delicious!!) I will be back to Mallorca if I ever return to Cleveland.

“Just A Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Spanish/Portuguese cuisine with so many fresh options. Always several fresh fish items as well as specialty appetizers. We both had the freshly made crab cakes (delicious!) and then the fabulous sea bass. Your entress come with a dinner salad (house-made dressing), spanish rice, steamed vegetables, and home-made potato chips. Their home-made sangria was the second best sangria I've ever had: the best being in Madrid, a long way from Cleveland in many ways. Service was exceptional. Menu has a large selection of tapas and other entrees besides the fish/seafood main ones. Seriously, this is a great place for dinner. Go, you won't be disappointed in the least. It's located in the now trendy warehouse district.
