Restaurant of the Week

by Jan Edwards

Tomeu Caldentey Cuiner, Sa Coma

The resort of Sa Coma on Mallorca’s east coast appears almost deserted after the holiday season has ended, and the shutters are down at most businesses for the winter. But on Sunday lunchtime, we were in a line of several cars pulling into the free car park across the road from Tomeu Caldentey Cuiner.

Stay Restaurant, Port de Pollença

A stalwart of popular Port de Pollença, Stay Restaurant is open all day, every day of the year. With its waterfront location and gorgeous views, it attracts locals and visitors alike. Stay first opened in 1972 but has been in its current guise since 2006. Contemporary in style, the restaurant has extensive decked terracing on two sides, and a smart dining room that’s filled with natural light.

El Sol, Son Serra de Marina

Most beach eateries in Mallorca have closed their doors after a busy season, but for those days when the sun shines from a bright blue sky and invites you to the coast, it’s good to know somewhere you can still eat out by the sea during the day.

Ca n’Eduardo, Palma

New restaurants are tempting – especially for those who like to post about them on social media. But established eateries with a good reputation will always have appeal, and if you’re looking for a seafood restaurant, where better than one located right above the fish market where the catch is auctioned in the early mornings?

Opening times:

Terragust Degusta, Petra

It looks an unlikely place to go out for lunch – or even for breakfast or a mid-morning snack – but the vast greenhouse located on the side of the Ma15 between the Es Cruce roundabout and Manacor is home not only to a farm shop selling good, well-priced, local produce but also the restaurant Degusta.


Can March, Manacor

First opened in 1925, Can March was originally a café serving people from the town. Today, two years before the business celebrates a century in the same family, Can March’s reputation as an excellent restaurant has spread across Mallorca.

Patiki Beach, Port de Sóller

With the forecast of the current Indian summer in Mallorca continuing for a while longer, it’s time to seize the final opportunities to eat out in a beach restaurant – before the shutters go down for this season.


Es Pi, Deià

Deià is Mallorca’s honeypot location, and at the height of the holiday season, it’s not easy to find somewhere to park a car. But just over two kilometres from the heart of this iconic village, you’ll find tranquillity in a restaurant with its own parking and spectacular views of Mallorca’s northeast coast and beautiful Deià itself.

Singular The Lodge, Sa Pobla

Despite all the sophisticated kitchen equipment and technology now available to chefs, cooking over a wood fire – a process dating back hundreds of thousands of years – is a growing trend in today’s international restaurant industry. One restaurant in Mallorca – named Singular – has made ‘cocina del fuego’ its speciality.

Mirabona, Binabona (Selva)

The appetite-reducing effect of Mallorca’s sizzling summer temperatures is over, making September perfect for resuming alfresco lunches out. With great timing, Mirabona restaurant at Finca Can Beneït has just launched its new weekday lunch menu and it’s worth the drive to hideaway Binibona (near Selva) to try it.

Port Verd del Mar, Port Verd (Son Servera)

The first of the late-summer storms has already visited Mallorca, but we can look forward to several more weeks of eating out by the Med, accompanied by the sounds of the sea and the scent of briny air. Perhaps at Port Verd del Mar – in the quieter area between Cala Bona and Costa de los Pinos?


SABA Restaurant, Santa Ponça

Korea meets Japan meets Spain. And it all happens in a peaceful enclave of Mallorca’s Santa Ponsa. Welcome to SABA Restaurant, one of the two eateries at the Kimpton Aysla Mallorca hotel – Kimpton’s first European property when it opened in October 2022 on part of the site of the former Santa Ponsa Country Club.

Ponderosa Beach, Platja de Muro

I make no apology for choosing a ‘chiringuito’ as my Restaurant of the Week. Hey, it’s the height of summer, and where do we want to eat lunch out in the heat of a Mallorcan August? Maybe within mere steps of the Caribbean-like turquoise sea at Platja de Muro? Ponderosa Beach ticks the boxes for location, delicious food and drinks, friendly service, and holiday vibes.


Market Kitchen, Palma

Palma’s Santa Catalina district is packed with ethnic food eateries. ‘Mallorquín’, Spanish, Peruvian fusion, Lebanese, Thai, Japanese, and Korean are only some of the cuisines on offer. But for top-quality, interesting British cuisine – with a twist – and the most hospitable hosts in town, head straight for Market Kitchen.

Aromata, Palma

Inca-born chef Andreu Genestra is having a moment. In the news for moving his eponymous Michelin-star restaurant to the rural Zoetry Mallorca Wellness & Spa Hotel near Llucmajor, the dynamic chef also designed the Mediterranean menu for the dinner show at the new Lío in Palma.


Restaurante 5’S Sant Llorenç

Creative cuisine is found in the most surprising places in Mallorca. Until May this year, I’d barely noticed the signpost to Son Penya Petit Hotel on the Ma15 roundabout near Sant Llorenç. In May, I had dinner there for the first time and when I heard that the hotel was 20 years old, I realised how many opportunities I’d missed to eat there.


ES FUM, Costa d’en Blanes

For an indulgent gastronomic treat or a special occasion dinner, the Michelin-starred Es Fum in Costa d’en Blanes ticks all the boxes.


Es Fum

ROTANA Restaurant, Manacor

A restaurant where you may be able to book a table for the same day, you’ll find ample free parking, and the ambience is relaxing? In the height of the Mallorcan summer? Escape to the countryside and check out this rural hotel restaurant.


ES GARUM, Lloseta

In the height of summer, so many locals and visitors to Mallorca want to eat at the coast that you may need to book a few days ahead to be sure of a table at the most popular establishments. But head inland to Mallorca’s towns and villages and you’ll have a more relaxed, summer eating-out experience. And find some surprisingly good restaurants.

Can you imagine a Hollywood movie star topping up his tan on the beach in Magaluf? Well, in the mid-1950s, holidaying ‘High Noon’ star Gary Cooper and a female companion asked a taxi driver to take them to Mallorca’s most tranquil beach. Hard to believe it was Magaluf.

Opening times:

La Braseria, Pollença

La Braseria may not have the allure of a seafront eatery in Port de Pollença or a restaurant in the narrow streets of the charming Pollença town, but it does have a Josper charcoal oven. And if you enjoy the flavour of food cooked over fire, La Braseria is worth a visit for young Bolivian chef Ruben Uzquiano’s expert cooking.


La Braseria

Rotonda Ca’n Berenguer
Carretera Port de Pollença – Pollença

All-day dining 12:30 - 22:00 h

ÜBECK, Manacor

If you’re in the Manacor area wanting flavours of the world but made from local produce, check out Übeck, which opened at the end of 2021 as a different addition to the town’s restaurant scene.



Microwaves, high-speed electric ovens, and the Thermomix may have revolutionized restaurant cooking methods, but the Josper charcoal oven is the hottest – in both senses of the word – piece of commercial kitchen equipment right now.

Fans of the TV series ‘Friends’ will know that “Joey doesn’t share food!”. If you have a friend like Joey Tribbiani, don’t take them to Lassala Grill in Mallorca. Go with a foodie friend or two and order a few of the delicious dishes created specifically for sharing by executive chef Andrés Benítez – who is also behind the critically acclaimed plant-forward cuisine at Botànic restaurant in Palma.

2023, May 29th | by Jan Edwards

Spanish cuisine’s most famous dish is undoubtedly paella, and it’s one that visitors to Spain are often keen to try. Although paella originated in Valencia, it’s possible to enjoy a good one in Mallorca if you know where to go.

2023, May 22nd | by Jan Edwards

If watching recent TV travel documentaries about Italy has made you long for a taste of ‘la dolce vita’, set your GPS for the town of Son Servera in the Llevant area of Mallorca. In the heart of the town, Restaurante Peperoncino offers tempting Italian cuisine and warm Italian hospitality that’ll transport you – at least in spirit – to ‘la bella Italia’.


Port Petit Cala d’Or

2023, May 15th | by Jan Edwards

For a high-quality restaurant to survive in Mallorca for 35 years, it must be something special. The smart Port Petit in Cala d’Or is such a restaurant. Not only does it have a great location and gorgeous views over the marina from its dining room and terrace, but also a well-deserved fine-dining reputation. It’s recommended in the Michelin Guide for 2023.


Es Torrent de Son Carrió, Sant Llorenç

2023, May 8th | by Jan Edwards

A short drive from the east coast or the town of Sant Llorenç takes you to the small village of Son Carrió, where innovative cuisine features on this restaurant’s monthly changing tasting menu.


Pata Negra – CAÑAS | TAPAS | VIDA – Palma

2022, May 2nd | by Patricia Gallego

A traditional Tapas Bar with a twist close to the beach and with easy access from Palma city.

Weather is warming up and we were in a mood to sit outside and enjoy a good glass of wine with a bite or two. Some friends had told us about this very authentic Spanish tapas bar in Ciudad Jardín.


Restaurante mÁxime, S’Horta

Soak up the panoramic golf-greens-and-Med view from the terrace of this restaurant near Portocolom

2020, Mar 9th

You don’t have to be a Vall d’Or Golf Club member to visit the clubhouse upper-floor Restaurante mÁxime. This restaurant is independently owned-and-run by chef/patron Máxime Deymier, whose international culinary career has influenced his cuisine. He’s worked in London, Paris, San Sebastian, and St Martin, but settled some years ago back on Mallorca – where he’d been born to a Canadian mother and French father.


The Duke, Palma

2020, Mar. 2nd | by Jan Edwards

A laidback Santa Catalina restaurant with a surfing vibe and some seriously tasty – and healthy – international food.

On a rather chilly and windy Monday evening in Palma, the area of Santa Catalina was eerily quiet. Until we entered The Duke – a cosy nook of a restaurant in a side street near Santa Catalina market. This was where everyone was, creating the buzzy warm ambience that’s evidence of an eatery that knows how to please its punters.


Osteria Dolores, Porto Cristo

2020, Feb 24th | by Jan Edwards

This new trattoria in Porto Cristo serves home-made pastas and pizzas and it’s one of the port’s few restaurants open daily throughout the year.

Porto Cristo has a new place to eat out and, unlike most eateries in the port, Osteria Dolores – which serves authentic Italian food – is open during the winter months.


Olivera, Es Capdellà

2020, Feb 17th | by Jan Edwards

Castell Son Claret in the picturesque Es Capdellà countryside is home to this welcoming restaurant. Expect exemplary Mediterranean cuisine with international touches and a hospitable service team.

It’s a scientific fact that being in the countryside is good for our mental wellbeing – but that’s only one reason to head for the 5-star hotel Castell Son Claret, in the stunning countryside outside the village of Es Capdellà.


D’Menú, Palma

2020, Feb. 10th | by Jan Edwards

It’s a simple concept: this Palma restaurant from chef /restaurateur Adrián Quetglas is open only at lunchtimes on weekdays, offering just a set menu.

Like several other chefs who have opened their own successful restaurants, Adrián Quetglas used to work for British chef Marc Fosh. After a decade working in Russia, in 2015, Adrián opened his own restaurant, which has a Michelin star. He also has the neighbouring D’Gustar tapas bar.

Kasui, Palma

2020, Feb. 3rd | by Jan Edwards

Japanese grill and cocktail bar in Palma’s trendy Plaça Raimundo Clar, that took its inspiration from the Land of the Rising Sun’s charcoal-grilled and street food.

Plaça Raimundo Clar has become quite the foodie destination in the regenerated quarter known as Sa Gerreria, in Palma de Mallorca. Bars and restaurants border the attractive large square and, since last September, Japanese cuisine has expanded the variety of international flavours on offer here.

BI BAP, Palma

2020, Jan. 27th | by Jan Edwards

Flavoursome authentic Korean and Asian cuisine await you at this popular restaurant in central Palma.

Toothsome isn’t a word I use very often, but it sprang to mind as I was eating a delicious lunch at Bi Bap restaurant in Palma de Mallorca last week. If I hadn’t been eating alone, I’d have used that word in conversation with my lunch companion. Instead, I’ve saved it for this review.



2020, Jan 20th | by Jan Edwards

Take a ringside seat for Mallorcan chef Tomeu Caldentey’s culinary action and enjoy a gastronomic experience right there in his kitchen.

Watching a chef at work has always fascinated me, which is one of the reasons I enjoy eating at Tomeu Caldentey Cuiner in Sa Coma. Here, you sit at one of the gleaming counters that border a modern, well-equipped kitchen. It’s your ringside seat for the culinary action of Mallorcan chef Tomeu Caldentey.


HPC Restaurante, Portocolom

2020, Jan 13th | by Jan Edwards

This popular Mediterranean restaurant faces Portocolom’s picturesque harbour and is open all day and throughout the year.

Whatever the time of year, Portocolom is always worth a visit. Although the port never really feels crowded, on a sunny winter’s day there’s a tranquillity here that’s like a balm for the soul.


Sa Llotja, Cala d’Or

2019, Dec 16th | by Jan Edwards

With views over the marina, this sister restaurant to Sa Llotja in Portocolom offers the promise of delicious cuisine, friendly service, and a stylish décor.

I’m always excited when I find a good restaurant by the sea that’s open in the winter – especially on one of those calm days when the sun shines from a clear blue sky.


Factoría, Manacor

2019, Nov. 25th | by Jan Edwards

The signature cuisine of chef Joan Bauzà is on offer at this lunch-and-dinner restaurant near the church in the heart of Manacor.

Joan’s cocina de autor is offered in an à la carte menu that’s available at both lunchtime and in the evenings.


Tomates Verdes, Llucmajor

2019, Nov. 18th | by Jan Edwards

Enjoy creative Mediterranean fusion cuisine – and a great-value lunch menu – at this restaurant in Llucmajor’s main square.

The central plaza in Llucmajor is lined with eateries, which could make it hard to choose where to eat out. My recommendation is Tomates Verdes – co-owned by Jorge Escrivá de Romani, originally from Madrid, and chef Carlos Sierra Galán.


Made in China, Palma

2019, Nov. 4th | by Jan Edwards

Mallorca’s best Chinese restaurant is in Palma and, although it’s not on the main tourist route, it’s an insider tip for good value and tasty authentic Cantonese cuisine.

Sandra may not sound like a Chinese name, but it’s how customers of Restaurante Made in China know its owner Weifan Wang. Sandra is from Canton, southern China, but Spain has been her home for some thirty years. She had a restaurant in Madrid before opening Made in China a few years ago.


Restaurante Made in China

C/ Ramón y Cajal, 15

Opening times:
Lunch: Monday to Sunday 13 - 16 h Dinner: Tuesday to Sunday 20 - 23 h

Lume & Co, Genova

2019, Oct. 21st | by Jan Edwards

Close to Palma, this restaurant’s location feels a world away from the city – and has its own car park!

Lume & Co is in what were once the stables of the 15th-century Son Berga castle, just outside Genova. The restaurant is in gated premises, with a large private car park. With the convenience of only a short drive from the centre of Palma, it has a rural feel – and this is appreciated when eating al fresco on the terrace or having a drink in the outdoor chill-out area.


Basic Bar Restaurante, Palma

2019, Oct. 7th

A high-quality three-course lunch for under 15 € in Palma de Mallorca? Find it here, close to El Corte Inglés on the Avenidas.

You’re unlikely to stumble across Basic Bar Restaurante on a wander around Palma de Mallorca. This restaurant is tucked away in a side street, off Carrer Aragón, close to the rear of El Corte Inglés on the Avenidas.


La Vieja de Jonay Hernández, Palma

2019, Sep 30th

‘New Canarian’ cuisine from chef/owner Jonay Hernández is on the menu at this cool eatery in Palma’s Sa Gerreria district…

Canarian cuisine with creative modern touches awaits you at La Vieja de Jonay Hernández – located in the increasingly trendy Plaça de Raimundo Clar, in the regenerated area of Sa Gerreria, in Palma.


Avocado Club, Palma

2019, Sep 23rd

Fans of the avocado will be in their element when they see the choice of healthy avocado dishes at this recent addition to Palma’s Passeig de Mallorca…

Opened in July, Avocado Club is an independent restaurant in Palma’s Passeig de Mallorca. The clue that you’ve found the place is the large wicker peacock chair outside, adorned with artificial flowers. Your first Instagram moment.


Cassai Beach House, Colonia de Sant Jordi

2019, Sep 16th

Stylish and situated right by the sea, Cassai Beach House is a relaxed place to enjoy tasty modern Mediterranean cuisine…

If you like to seize any opportunity to eat by the Mediterranean as summer slips into autumn, Cassai Beach House in Colònia de Sant Jordi is worth a visit. There’s an attractive nautical décor at this beachfront eatery at Cala Galiota. Three distinct dining areas are on different levels: the decked terrace is the lowest and closest to the beach.


Restaurant Nama, Deià

2019, Sep 9th

Beautiful Tramuntana village of Deia is home to this stylish restaurant serving memorable Asian cuisine – with plenty of choice for vegan diners.

You’re spoilt for choice when eating out in the picturesque mountain village of Deià, but if it’s authentic Asian flavours you’re hungry for, then Restaurant Nama is the place to head for. Nama is in a townhouse on the main street through the village and has been a popular eatery since it opened in 2016.

C/ Arxiduc Lluis Salvador, 22

Opening times:
12 h until late daily except Thursday. (Lunch menu available from 12 - 17 h)

La Pérgola, Colonia de Sant Jordi

2019, Sep 2nd

Wine enthusiasts will appreciate the remarkable choice at this Colonia de Sant Jordi restaurant…

A family-run hotel in a Mallorcan resort may seem an unlikely place to find a restaurant with a cellar of 400 different Mallorcan and Spanish wines, but it’s the reason that Hotel El Coto in Colonia de Sant Jordi is known as ‘the wine hotel’.


Sa Llotja, Portocolom

2019, Aug 26th

Restaurant with memorable views, delicious cuisine, and affordable set menus – at lunch and dinner times.

Portocolom has plenty of eateries facing the picturesque harbour, but my favourite of them all is set apart from the others and may easily be missed because it’s above street level.


Bistro Senzill, Capdepera

2019, Aug 19th

Chef Andreu Genestra serves dishes based on local produce in a rural setting near Capdepera.

Mallorcan chef Andreu Genestra has two restaurants at the Hotel Predi Son Jaumell, in the countryside outside the northeast-Mallorcan town of Capdepera. The restaurant in his name has one Michelin star but, if your budget won’t stretch to Michelin-star dining, his Bistro Senzill at the same hotel offers an opportunity to eat Andreu’s cuisine at a more accessible price, in a less formal ambience.


Kairiku, Campos

2019, Aug 12th

Mallorca’s only omakase restaurant is in Campos and has a new master of Japanese haute cuisine

Kairiku restaurant in the town of Campos offers an omakase dining experience that’s unique on the island. Omakase translates as ‘I trust you’ and that means you trust the chef to choose what to serve. Every dish of the menu at Kairiku comes as a delicious surprise and an example of authentic Japanese cuisine.


Cova Negra, Capdepera

2019, Aug 5th

Located in a former convent in the hilltop town of Capdepera, Cova Negra is chef Pablo Tamarit’s own restaurant – an exciting addition to the gastronomic offering of Mallorca’s northeast.


Marc Fosh, Palma


2019, July 22nd

No self-respecting foodie should miss the opportunity to try the Michelin-starred cuisine at Marc Fosh restaurant in Palma de Mallorca – where an excellent-value lunch is on offer.


Arume, Palma

Brush up your skills with chopsticks* at this Palma restaurant serving Asian-meets-Mediterranean cuisine from the talented chef/owner Tomeu Martí.

2019, July 15th

Arume restaurant in Palma is still my favourite place to eat Asian cuisine – with some Mediterranean touches. The amiable Mallorcan chef and owner Tomeu Martí honed his Asian culinary skills during his travels to that part of the world. He opened Arume in 2006, five years after winning the title of Spain’s best young chef, aged 21.


Quince, Porto Cristo

A super-friendly and relaxed restaurant in Porto Cristo with fine views down over the marina, serving ‘soul food’. Be sure to book ahead for a table.

2019, July 8th

When Martín L. Segura bought the existing Quince Restaurante & Cantina in September 2015, his venture into restaurant ownership began. Today, the Argentinian owns four successful eateries in Porto Cristo and Porto Cristo Novo. Of them all, Quince is still our favourite, for its location, tasty international food, relaxed atmosphere, and super-friendly staff.


Oliu, Andratx

No parking problems at this stylish roadside restaurant with terrace and garden near Andratx.

2019, July 1st

A restaurant owned by its chef is usually a reliable choice when looking for a place to eat good food. That’s certainly the case with Oliu restaurant – on the road between Andratx and Port d’Andratx – where Mallorcan chef and owner Joan Porcel Balaguer has been offering his creative dishes since 2013.


VORO, Canyamel

A choice of two tasting menus of chef Álvaro Salazar’s signature cuisine make this fine-dining restaurant a reason to visit Canyamel.

2019, June 24th

When the smart restaurant VORO opened this year at the 5-star Park Hyatt Mallorca, in Mallorca’s northeast resort of Canyamel, there was no doubt that the cuisine would be exceptional. This fine-dining restaurant has a talented young team in the kitchen, led by chef Álvaro Salazar. He previously worked in Puerto Pollensa at Argos, which was still in its debut year when Michelin first awarded it a coveted star.


Rosetó, Palma

A hideaway restaurant in the heart of Palma, with a courtyard for alfresco eating and a great-value menu.

2019, June 17th

Everyone should know a place to eat in Palma de Mallorca where they can escape the summer crowds and enjoy a well-priced lunch or dinner.


Sebastian, Deià

Making diners happy for 25 years, this seasonal restaurant in the mountain village of Deià is a favourite for a special occasion.

2019, June 10th

Restaurante Sebastian in the picturesque village of Deià is owned by the amiable German chef Sebastian Pasch and his delightful Irish wife Patricia, who runs front of house. Twenty-five years after they first opened their restaurant, they still appear to be enjoying what they do: cooking and serving delicious Mediterranean cuisine, based on fresh local produce.


Sa Punta, Son Servera

A popular Mediterranean restaurant on a promontory at Port Verd, near Cala Bona.

2019, June 3rd

If you knew Sa Punta a few years ago, you’ll find it’s changed quite a bit since then. Although still under the same ownership (a member of Rafa Nadal’s family), the restaurant was given a stylish new look in 2017 and positive changes were made to personnel and the menu. We visited after a few years’ absence and found a much-improved Sa Punta.


Tess de Mar, Campos
