“Still being one of the best restaurants in Palma”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

I have been a costumer of this restaurant since 20 years ago. Just a piece of gastronomic heaven not far from Santa Caterina market. Cod fish is excellent and also meat. Nice dessert and wines.

“Foodie Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

There are three types of restaurant in Palma; the tourist traps, the excellent restaurants in the tourist areas and Xoriguer, which is simply the best. Tucked away from the main tourist area this is a restaurant patronised mainly by the locals and those lucky few who find it. For meat lovers this establishment is the final word. The wonderful proprietor offered us three different types of steak, which are cooked over an open fire in the kitchen. My T bone from Salamanca came cut and sliced from the bone and done to perfection. The starters and desserts were stunning and home made, the wine list extensive without being expensive and the owners service of the gin and tonic made with the Menorcan Gin from which he restaurant takes it name was a joyous ritual in perfectionism that my taste buds confirmed applies to everything that is served here. And then at the end of the meal we were offered an after dinner drink. Having chosen, the owner simply left the bottles at our table, told us this was on the house and to help ourselves. If you want a small family run restaurant, with home cooking and stunning ingredients, a small menu and run by a charming and dedicated foodie, then this is foodie heaven. Even amongst the many excellent restaurants we ate in during our stay in Palma, this one was not only the best, it deserves a category of its own.

“Among the Finest Beef I Have Ever Enjoyed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

This restaurant, in an unprepossessing location in a residential sector of Palma, does things to beef that (I am sure) many chefs can only dream about. Co-owned by the maitre-de table and the head chef the place exudes culinary confidence. We had Blue Fin Tuna Tartare followed by Hereford beef strips with the dinkiest french fries ever seen. All this is seasoned with Mallorca's characteristic salt, and it says it all that the place does not ask you how you want your beef done. The restaurant KNOWS, and is right on matters of what your dinner should taste like.

The wines are an education, and perfectly suited to the meats. Wonderful. Thank you for an excellent meal!

“It just gets better and better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

We have now been going to Xoriguer for the past 3 years and it never disappoints. The quality of ingredients used are top notch and cooked in a simple but beautiful way. Both the meats and fish are equally good, but the beefs the restaurant offers are just sublime. The proprietor, Guillermo is a most charming host, and super knowledgeable of both food and drink.
The wines offered are a brilliant representation of the regions of Spain and the list is extensive, especially the reds.
For me it is the best food I have ever tasted and cooked to perfection.
Guillermo can occasionally be persuaded to pick up his guitar towards the end of the evening, which just rounds off the night perfectly.

“A great recommendation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

This place was recommended by our hotel receptionist. It does take a while to find as its not exactly where it is shown on the map. Be aware that it opens late approx 8.30pm
Very friendly informative service, great choice of wine that you choose by the label. The food was exceptional a modern twist on classic Spanish dishes ,together with some well chosen specials. Nice for a special meal whilst in palma.
