“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We had a fantastic meal here- the food was delicious, service excellent- friendly and efficient, but never pushy. Best dishes- the green peppers with jamon and the seafood paella, but everything was really good.The stone cooked steak was incredibly tender and the proprietor checked to make sure it was cooked to our liking.The pictures on this review page sum it up exactly! Our favourite place in Palma.

“Paella! Yum.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Another night in the street of a thousand restaurants, and this time we fancied paella. Our guidebook recommended Carmen, so we booked earlier in the day to avoid disappointment. We had a super big table, at the front of the restaurant. The owner was happy to serve us one paella between the two of us, and a large mixed salad, as we are not huge eaters and we alos had a couple of tapas starters. Good wine complemented the food. We were treated like a pair of princesses by the owner and staff, not rushed, even though they were constantly taking in new customers. An excellent evening.
