We stumbled into this little Taberna in a quiet back street near our hotel and were treated to a fantastic feast of tappas! The place has great personality, a warm homely atmosphere and service with real smiles! We ordered too much - but we were not disappointed in any of the six dishes we had - one better than the next - the lamb with peppers was an impressive culinary treat. They tell us that the Tapas recipes "haven't changed for decades" - well they sure got it right. I'm sure we can't resist visiting again tonight!!!

With so many excellent restaurants to chose from in Palma why year on year do we return to Caracol? Simple it's the best - excellent waiters and Chef(s). Went last night and rebooked a week later. One tip book in advance and don't expect to just turn up !!!

Stunning location, perfect service and amazing food - what else would you need? The place got a charming local vibe, being very homey and warm.
We were quite hungry so 5 or 6 tapas for 2 of us + Sangria just made it. All the dishes were to the highest standard and make sure to try the Pulpo a la Gallego – the very best one I had outside Galicia!

Beware - open only 7:30pm-11pm and is closed on Sundays.

The waiter is great, all of the tapas dishes was really good. Especially the meat balls and the goat cheese with blueberry jam. The surroundings have a good atmosphere and you feel as you are in a really genuine restaurant.

We had a total of 6 dishes, were two of them were vegetarian, and we got completely stuffed, so the portions are good.

6 dishes, a couple of beers and glasses of prosecco, bottle of water and bread with aioli put us back approx. €70. Well worth it!
