“Perfect Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

All the other reviews describe this little place so well, we were so glad to follow in the footsteps of fellow tapas lovers, the best we had on our week in Mallorca. We also bought wine and olives to takeaway. A true find. A previous reviewer said to find the bar keep heading to the church with the balcony - easy!

If you're after real Spanish food look no further. Just let Alex serve you with what he recommends and you won't go wrong. We had a mixed plate of 5 tapas - sheepskin cheese with oregano, sobrasada with figs and honey, manacor cheese with olive tapenade and sun dried tomatoes, chorizo and, finally, wonderful ham. The wine (like the food) is all as local as possible. If you can manage it try the dessert wine too (hic!)

I've never had a meal like it in Spain; the owners set it up because its the sort of place they would have wanted to find in Valledemossa. It's is so worth a visit I can't tell you. We popped in, booked (there are only three seating areas) and came back a couple of hours later. Unmissable.

“High quality local products and the most charming spot of the village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

The young lovely couple running this small shop/taberna have created a great place for small groups or couples to spent a nice time away of the often too busy main street of Valldemossa. I went a couple of times while on holidays and I had a couple of glasses of red wine from Mallorca with one of the most delicious and original tapas I have ever had: sobrassada, fresh figs and organic olive oil from Valldemossa over a slice of "pan moreno". Unexpensive.

“Me too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

I cannot add anything to the earlier excellent reviews.... only sorry they beat me to it. All I can say that if you are in Valldemossa give this young couple your euros. Their manner, their enthusiasm, their ethics, their wine, their tapas.... all deserve success.

“Quintessential Mallorcan delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

So glad we found this place, tucked away behind the church of San Bartolome,(the one with a balcony around the top of its tower) away from the real touristy area, but just as beautiful, with a network of medieval streets and stunning views.

Quita Penas is run and managed by a young Spanish couple who are passionate about local food and produce. They have converted a lower level of their house to a little bar/eatery & shop. There are two tables inside and a few places to sit outside on the little stepped street, all on great home-made tables and benches from recycled wood.

The tapas are great and made to order from a small well-crafted menu. We had the tapas raciones and the plate of jamon both priced well at 10 Euro's. Both were excellent and some of the best we tried on Mallorca. All the produce, including wines are sourced from local Mallorcan producers. We went a number of times and received a very warm welcome and each time, just as good, if not better than the last.

If you are in or near Valldemossa, go find this place. It is great.
