“A true Majorcan Jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Visited Basmati again yesterday for a lunchtime birthday celebration and had a wonderful experience. We have dined at Basmati a few times over the years and love the new restaurant, the settings now fit the hospitality and quality of food, they are all fantastic!! The hosts are very friendly, welcoming and make the whole experience so enjoyable. The food is first class and it is so lovely to try so many dishes you have never tried before, the kitchen produces the best! My highlight dish yesterday was a beautiful venison curry, mmmm, The free red wine is very enjoyable but you can ask for a wine menu if you fancy something of your own choosing. For 30e per person we enjoyed a starter, grill, main course, sweet, tea/ coffee and liqueur, and of course the free flowing wine. We will be back in Majorca in March and our first stop will be Basmati. Treat yourself to a wonderful decadent holiday treat at such a reasonable price, with such welcoming hosts, you won't find better on Majorca!

“Great Dining Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

We were only in Mallorca for two nights, so we wanted to make sure that we made the best of our dining experiences. Luckily, this restaurant did not disappoint! The chef was very attentive, taking time to come to our table to understand what types of flavors / spiced we liked / disliked and then tailoring his suggestions based on our answers to these questions.

The food was excellent! We had four courses - each as good or better than the last.

All in all, this was a fantastic dining experience. I would recommend it to all looking for a good place to eat in Mallorca!
