Where to Eat in Mallorca

Discover the top Mallorca places to eat

Jose Rains, Mallorca Reporter | Published

If you're flying to Mallorca during the day, your first experience of dining with incredible views might well be on the plane while you dig into a packet of peanuts. Personally, I can't help feeling a thrill when those majestic cliffs of Cap de Formentor come into view.

Of course, it doesn't need to stop there and, fortunately, you don't need to be thousands of metres up in the sky to enjoy stunning vistas. Mallorca is full of them. Here are some recommendations where feasting on the view is a must.

Recommended restaurants with sea views in Mallorca
1. Sa Foradada Restaurant
2. Ca's Patro March Restaurant
3. Cassai Beach House
4. Mhares Sea Club
5. Kaskai Restaurant
6. Illeta Restaurant
7. Purobeach Illetas
8. Rocamar Restaurant
9. UM Beach House
10. Es Grau Restaurant

1. Sa Foradada – near Deià

Sa Foradada

If you are after a delicious paella served with memorable sea views, then Sa Foradada is an absolute must. On a cliffside overlooking the glistening sea of the west coast of the island, its location makes it a prime spot for sunset watching. You can’t drive here, so will either have to walk down the mountain via the Son Marroig estate, or visit by boat and head up the steps from the water. It’s a no-frills kind of place famed for its tasty paellas cooked over an old-fashioned wood-fired grill.

2. Ca's Patro March – Cala Deià

C'as Patro del March

This restaurant has been firmly placed on the map thanks to the BBC drama ‘The Night Manager’ and that famous kidnapping scene. Ca's Patro March is in a paradise setting, sitting up amongst the rocks of Cala Deià, overlooking some of Mallorca’s most crystalline turquoise waters. Here is seafood heaven for fish lovers but, if you prefer your food from land-based sources, there are some good meat and vegetarian dishes too. Be warned, there is often a queue for tables even if you have booked but you can easily pass the time soaking up the spectacular surroundings down in the cove while you wait. You can enjoy both lunch and dinner here in the summer months, however, being on the west coast, it’s particularly special during the last golden hour of the day.

3. Cassai Beach House – Colonia de Sant Jordi

Cassai Beach House

If you find yourself in the south-east of Mallorca, then a trip to Colonia de Sant Jordi should be on your agenda. Cassai Beach House is a converted old fisherman’s house transformed into a modern and avant-garde venue which makes the most of its seaside setting. Traditional dishes with a modern twist make a regular appearance on the menu including soups, sausages, rice, meat, and fish. You can dine whilst enjoying the wonderful view over the water all the way over to the island of Cabrera on a clear day.

4. Mhares Sea Club – Puig de Ros

Mhares Sea Club

This beach club at the foot of a cliff near Llucmajor feels deliciously exclusive. Located just within a 15-minute drive south of the capital, its spacious terrace is on the front line of the sea and enjoys stunning views of the Bay of Palma, with the rugged rock face to the side of the restaurant enhancing the feeling of escape and seclusion. The beach club offers a vision of idyllic summer living with terracotta tiles, white Balinese beds and lounge areas. At its Tamarell Restaurant you can tuck into Mediterranean dishes with a twist, like 'Mallorcan style fish ravioli with prawn and saffron sauce' or 'Mixed seafood and meat paella'. In the evening, their Bauxa terrace bar serves incredible cocktails while the sun sets offering a breathtaking spectacle.

5. Kaskai – Palma

Kaskai Palma

For spectacular panoramic views of the city of Palma and its yacht-filled bay, head to Kaskai Restaurant at the Mirador de Na Burguesa. The road winds up the mountain, the vistas becoming more impressive at each turn. Kaskai is a bright, spacious restaurant of clean edges and minimalist decor. Make sure to ask for a table by the window. Charcoal-grilled meat is their specialty but their menu also offers fish, pasta and vegetarian options, with mains starting at around €15. The restaurant opens from 18:00 until late. Go before the sun goes down to appreciate the view and then enjoy the sunset and the twinkling lights of the city. Hopefully, you'll be forgiven for spending more time staring out of the window than into your partner's eyes!

6. Illeta – Camp de Mar

Restaurante Illeta

If the front line of the seaside isn't close enough, then how about enjoying the sea views from within the sea? You might recognise Illeta Restaurant, which sits on a small rock just off Camp de Mar Beach from the recent Netflix series 'White Lines'. An idyllic location where you can immerse yourself in the view and enjoy the refreshing sea breeze. Open for both lunch and supper, the restaurant specialises in fish and seafood with mains starting at €15. Be sure to book ahead as the attractive location and its easy access means it's a very popular stop.

7. Purobeach – Illetas

Puro Beach Illetas

Purobeach Illetas is the place to be seen this summer. Located between Palma and Puerto Portals, the prestigious beach club is within easy access of many resorts along the south-west coast of Mallorca. The all-white restaurant offers a glamorous setting alongside some of the best panoramic views of the stunning waters of Illetas. The menu has many international flavours but the ‘Asian beef salad’ will be sure to tickle your taste buds and should be washed down with some scrumptious cocktails. Open daily from 10:00 until midnight, why not book yourself a sun lounger for the afternoon alongside either lunch or dinner?

8. Rocamar – Port d'Andratx


You don't have to drive up mountains or wind down cliffs to find a great view. The restaurants along the harbour of Port d'Andratx are in a prime position to enjoy the relaxing Mediterranean sea views. With elegant yachts and gorgeous villas on the surrounding mountains, this upmarket port holds lots of appeal. Restaurant Rocamar is situated at the end of the row of eateries and specialises in fish and seafood. Perfect for watching the sunset, book ahead to ensure you've got a front-row seat.

9. UM Beach House – Costa d'en Blanes

UM Beachhouse

UM Beach House is another fabulous option to enjoy uplifting sea views in an attractive Mediterranean-style setting. It's located just outside Puerto Portals and it boasts front-line views of the surrounding bay. Wood, wicker and white furnishings give the terrace its Mediterranean flavour and, during the day, it's a perfect place to chill out poolside, You'll be just as warmly welcomed in the evening when the dining area twinkles with candlelight.

10. Es Grau – Estellencs

Es Grau perched atop a cliff

Restaurant Es Grau is located just three kilometres outside the picturesque Tramuntana town of Estellencs, on the Carretera de Andratx. The drive here is full of incredible views of arid landscape meeting the bluest ocean. The restaurant's position on top of a cliff jutting into the sea means the views are breathtaking. Leaning over the balcony you can marvel at the rocky coves accessed only by boat while the shallower turquoise water is so clear you can see the rocks beneath. Go during the day for the full effect. This is the type of place to stop by for a drink or for a casual lunch and is extremely popular among cyclists. The restaurant opens from 10:00 to 18:00 and specialises in Mallorquin cuisine.
