Husbands steak was cooked to perfection and the pepper sauce just as tasty. Bread with ali oli on the side & all washed down with a nice bottle of rose. Perfect !!! Highly... More

Located in the old town area not far from the cathedral, this tapas restaurant offers a good selection of freshly prepared dishes. The location is within an old building, with high ceilings and arched stone walls. On our visit we were looked after by Cedric, who had worked in the establishment for the last seven years. He was friendly and... More

Poor quality food - tapas were in fact large portions of bland tough meat. German owner not interested unless you are also German!

Whilst visiting Palma we found this delightful tapas/restaurant and returned twice due to its location tucked down a cobbled street, the delicious home cooked food and personal engaging service.

This was a very nice place with great service! They were very friendly. Also the food was great. Everything was made fresh, a la minute in the open kitchen. The artichoke was amazing!

We are here for our evening meal. And what a meal. We chose two tapas for starters followed by the steak for 2 people. Beautifully cooked and presented food with very friendly and knowledgeable service. Top marks.

My brother and I stumbled across this restaurant and one of the locals told us to try it out, saying it was great for food. And she was right. The restaurant itself is an eye-catcher, being located in the cellar area and therefore cool on hot Palma summer days. You can see the kitchen from the main seating area and... More

Tasty, basic food in this tiny restaurant, where you'll feel relaxed and at home. Service is friendly and prompt. It was exactly what we were looking for at the end of a busy day. Another bonus - it's a stones throw from the Santa Clara hotel.

Thank Joan C
