Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

A bit of a hike up past Plaza Espana but worth it!
Great people, great food (for carnivores but some other stuff) my best Palma find this year thanks to TA.
If you like steaks you should come here and Bruselas just to compare- both excellent IMO but different!

“Fantastic meat and very good service”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We were on vaccation for one week outside Palma. Found this restaurant av Tripadvisor and decided to test it even if it is a bit away from the normal area for restaurants. we were the first guests for this suterday evening and got very good and helpful service. People seemed to be booked with just enough time between so everybody got good service. We ordered carpaccio and sausage for starter, both very good and generous. For main course we ordered beef (?) from Argentina and we both think it was the best or one of the best meat at ever. Even if it was a lot of meat you just wanted more. Next year we will go back!

“Outstanding food and service for meat-lovers”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Not for the faint-hearted, Bolixe is an outstanding restaurant serving top-quality meat dishes. The black-pudding or blood sausage was a highlight. Service was very good and friendly, and the price very reasonable. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Palma with the exception of vegetarians.

“Perfecion in every detail”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

I booked a table based on recommendation from TA. We've had absolutely fantastic evening. Everything we tried from artichoke, sausages to the amazing steak was prepared in such way, I can only say it was unforgettable. I ordered wine and left it to the waiters choice (expecting high price on the bill). What I got was lovely local wine for just few euro. The service gets 15 out of 10 from me. We got the attention, offers of tasting local specialities, good explanation of how the meals were prepared.
Few words of advice-the restaurant is located in residential area close to the main station. I advice to take a cab (6-7 euro from touristy part of Palma). It is almost only local people dining here which means that you should book late, or accept pretty quite surroundings. Some guests arrived after 23.00;) I might add this isn't ideal option for vegan of vegetarian. However, the meat served here is absolutely delicious!

“Amazing service and delicious meal”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

This was the best restaurant we had dinner in Palma though other restaurants were also in relevant price/quality category. I liked ithis place for the personal touch, delicious meal, excellent service and good wine. The salad with goat chees, figs and honey was the best I've ever tried! The best about this place is the service with personal touch! The owner is very accomodating and finds time to talk with each client, to give recommendations on food-wine combination. We come there by taxi as it seems to be not very centraly located though it takes us just few minutes to get to the city center.
