Outstanding fresh tapas, and family run. Always busy in the evening. Sit at the bar and observe, or choose a table under vaulted ceilings of the old cellars. Good quality wines over a broad spectrum.

Don't expect too much from this place. They have some signature dishes - but all of them are very nice. The prices are not high, the service is very good, but you are to be ready not to be understood - only one of the waiters speaks English. So you will have to use your finger as a pointer very...

One of Mallorca's best kept secrets when it comes to tapas bars. It's almost secretly located below ground, right off of a pathway of restaurants. The tapas are fresh, authentic served to order. And the portions are generous at a very decent price.The atmosphere is warm and the service top! We were really impressed!

Found this great hole in the wall place 7 years ago, couldn't wait to get back, been 3 times this year and will return tonight for great fresh tapas and great local wines. The waiters have always been nice to us and we have sent loads of people there.

We arrived without a booking and they squeezed us in. The food is all freshly made and is very good value. The beer and wine are great and good value. Get off the main road and try this

You would walk past this place and right it off. First appearances are of a so so tapas restaurant that churn out average quality. It's far far better than that. All dishes are super tasty and fresh plus great value. We always visit on our first night in Palma

The atmosphere is typical Spanish. The food is excellent and the staff very nice. We have been here three times and can definitely recommend this restaurant. Not very expensive.

We were taken here by friends and the food was really great, big portions for sharing. I really enjoyed the mushrooms, cheese, aioli and the boqueroni Fritos were superb, really divine and we had great service. Only complaint the food came too quickly I would order in 2 tranches rather next time

Had dinner here last night and it was a good experience. The food was delicious and the portion size was generous. The restaurant has a lot of character, it feels like you're in a cave. I will probably go back one more time while I'm in Palma. Don't take it personally when the staff is not overly friendly, they are... More

Sa Volta and La Cueva were two adjoining Tapas bars owned and run by the Nieto brothers. (I think their parents established them.) Sa Volta was TINY but they have now connected the two bars and they are packed out every night. The food is incredible. The service is excellent.
