A fabulous restaurant on the beach that has so much history (since the swinging ‘60’s). It’s a delight as the food is great (fantastic), the wine wonderful and the staff are lovely and friendly. Pure Mallorcan style on a plate.More

Hi Amy, Our apologies for your disappointment with your experience here with us. We believe 12 euros for a pasta dish is more than reasonable, especially considering the location. The crowded beach depends on the day and time of year. Best regards Ponderosa Team

Description
In 1967, was founded what today is Ponderosa Beach. The vision of our grandparents, together with the dedication and passion of our parents, laid the foundations and values that we do our best to preserve and honor today. Ponderosa Beach is the result of the evolution of a clear concept, named as "chiringuito 2.0". Here, you have an experience of all senses, the very first being sight, thanks to the magnificent location and view, then right through to taste, smell, sound and feel...you'll be eating with your feet in the sand. A chiringuito in a wonderful enclave; which is part of the natural park of S’Albufera and is only a few meters away from the sea. The restaurant sits right on the sand of the beach. Ponderosa Beach is made up of two terraces, front and side, and offers unbeatable views of the water. Our cuisine is based on the Mediterranean flavor. In addition to this traditional Balearic taste, Ponderosa Beach counts on a signature cuisine updated each year. Dishes elaborated with a lot of passion and love by our Chef Abraham Artigas and with all the local products that our producers deliver to us daily. Fresh fish tartar, scallops, razor shells and seaweed, kale and seaweed salad, design signature paellas, Majorcan lamb, lightly grilled white tuna fish or the Ponderosa signature desserts are many of what we offer. All this culinary work has resulted in us standing among the best and most recommended restaurants on the island. Food critics like Martina Zender and trend magazines like abcMallorca have included us in their recommendations. We feel very proud and even more motivated to improve whenever possible and to always maintain our high-quality standards. A good meal must always be accompanied with a good wine. Our wine selection includes specially selected brands and cellars to suit each of the dishes on our menu. The combination is made to measure by JOAN MUT, a prize-winning expert wine taster and our main partner in the winery. In addition to a wide range of signature white wines, both national and local, we also offer the best selection of beer and sangria. Who could say no to a nice cocktail by the sea? Ponderosa Beach has an exclusive cocktail bar. Our barman will make your taste buds burst. Traditional cocktail drinks like Mojitos or Caipirinhas sit side-by-side with more daring combinations on the menu with daily suggestions and the barman's recommendations, which are always made freshly with top quality fruit from the market. On top of that, Ponderosa Beach offers an extensive and varied music program with local, national and international DJs and live bands. The best DJs visiting Mallorca end up at Ponderosa Beach to enjoy a full day of unbeatable atmosphere that you all will be able to enjoy with us. We have been nominated by DJ Magazine as one of the best Beach Clubs in Spain 2014 and in the Vicious Music Awards. If you need to organize an event we have a specialized department at Ponderosa Beach that will help you with it. Weddings, incentive trips, meetings, celebrations or simply a family reunion are some of the events we plan. It is very important to reserve ahead of time since our seats are limited in quantity and date availability. In July and August, we cannot accommodate any type of events due to the high volume of reservations that we have. Please contact us by email or telephone to find out the current availability.
