authentic tapas restaurant, full of ambience and efficient service. Their wonderful and
experienced waiters provide much of the entertainment throughout their lunch and dinner

From the kitchen, you can expect nothing less than delicious, generously portioned and fast

stew, ‘pimientos de Padrón’, garlic prawns, ‘croquetas’ or ‘patatas bravas’ are all regular
performers. Pair your meal with a local Mallorcan wine and you’re in for a real treat!

Visitor comments

“Go there! We were in Palma for a week and went to this restaurant on our first night and
went back for a second time. Each time I had lamb chops, which were absolutely delicious.
Wine, atmosphere and service were all good.” – Trip Advisor

“Great authentic Spanish place. First place in Palma that really felt like Spain. Would strongly
recommend this place.” – Trip Advisor

“Very traditional tapas and good value. I would note however all food comes out within two
minutes of ordering, so better to order a few dishes at a time rather than all at once. Loved
the dates wrapped in bacon.” – Trip Advisor
