Description: Open every day from Monday to Saturday from 12.30 until 16.00 and from 19.00 until 23.00 All our food is home-made, carefully prepared in our kitchen, without rushing, We offer our clients top quality food, staple goods are locally sourced where possible. Our eggs and chicken is free range,a small step but in the right direction. We are conciencious of health concerns and allergy intolerance and do try to offer something for everyone, always offering an alternative so that families or friends can eat together regardless of diet. Small parties or groups are also catered for and celebration cakes, either traditional or healthy options made to order. We offer a daily menu with 3 choices for 13.50€ including bread, olives and homemade aioli. Our evening menu at 21.50€ is rather more elaborated & the choices and portions reflect the price. All our desserts are homemade There is also an a la carte menu with dishes for all tastes, many of our salads, pastas and starters can be adapted to vegan or vegetarian. We also offer a choice of alternative milk and gluten free bread and beer. Our wines are competitively priced and if served by the glass are offered at good measures. We have an excellent house wine and pride ourselves to offer organic Can Ribas wine which is and has been produced for over three hundred years in the small village of Consell. Our establishment is small, just 10 tables, we do not pretend to be anything other than an enthusiastic couple working together with a strong chef and kitchen assistant offering good quality food, freshly prepared and served to you for your enjoyment. My husband Eloy always asks guests to tell him if something is not right so he can do something about it.

This is an honest bistro that was refreshing to find. We found the traditional style menu a joy and the stuffed aubergine was damn good. Friendly warm service that deserves to be higher on the list. Excellent find.

Thank Bill A

We found this gem of a bistro-type bar next to Santa Eulalia church in the old centre of Palma, and we've been 3 times now.
What a friendly bunch of people running the place.The food is based on traditional Mallorcan home cooking, and the chef,teo, has put his own spin on his Mum's and his Grandmother's recipes to serve up a delicious range of fare, from hearty soups and stews to delicious savouries, and the daily special is always worth trying and is a very reasonably priced 3 course meal.

I can also recommend the various tapas on offer too,the spinach croquettes and the millefeuille potatoes being two of my favourites.

The desserts offered are also very tempting, and Sam who makes a lot of them is quite the cake maker, so there's usually a nice gateau or two on offer.
The wines offered seem to be divided into three categories: first the table wines which are very good value, then a slightly posher range of bottles, still pretty good value, and then somereally fine vintages at very good prices indeed.
There are a good few interesting beers too,not just the usual on tap stuff, but local beers and specials such as Inedit and Mik Mallorcan.

We think it's a really nice place to eat and we'll go again when we're in Palma.

A friend and I were walking around the beautiful city center in Palma de Mallorca when we came across this cute and cozy restaurant. We decided to pay a visit to Santa Eulàlia's Church and just as we were leaving it behind we noticed that there was a new restaurant called Sa Bodegueta. Since we were both feeling kind of hungry and had not yet decided where to go for lunch, we thought it would be a good idea to try it out. And boy, what a great idea it was.

We had a typical mallorcan dish (which name I can't remember) that consisted of vegetables and meat. It was absolutely delicious. We also had some beer and a piece of cheesecake, both included in the 9€ something set menu. The cake was homemade and it tasted just as great as it looked. The staff at the restaurant were also very nice to us and friendly.

If you ever happen to be walking around Palma and are unsure where to go for lunch, this is definitely the place.

This is a small, attractive local restaurant neat to the Santa Eulalia Church in the old town. It changed hands to new young owners in November 2012 and really is a find in an area where there aren't many genuine local restaurants.
The place opens for breakfast at 7.30 am and closes at midnight, serving everything from coffees and home-made cakes to special midday lunches for around 10 euros including starter, main course and sweet. We had fantastic pa amb oli - local bread with cheeses and cold cuts -- and a wonderful bacalao covered in sweet onions. Home cooking and lots of local dishes made to order. Highly recommended - we were there three times in as many days and always got a cheerful welcome from the English speaking staff who were only too keen to explain the many local Balearic dishes on the menu.
