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.

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.



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.

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.

Stay Restaurant, Port de Pollença

2019, Dec. 2nd | by Jan Edwards

Open all day every day of the year, this Port de Pollença restaurant has the benefit of beautiful bay views from its waterside terrace.

Stay first opened in Port de Pollença in 1972; its present owner acquired the place in 1989 and in 2005, closed the restaurant to undertake a total reconstruction. The Mallorcan architect Luis García Ruiz created the contemporary design of the building that catches the eye on approaching the port along the coast road.


Ponderosa Beach, Playa de Muro

Memorable eating experience by the Mediterranean, with dreamy Bay of Alcúdia views

2019, May 20th

Ponderosa Beach is not a typical ‘chiringuito’, although you’ll find it on the long sandy Playa de Muro. This family-run beach eatery – which has its roots back in 1967 – offers an unexpected level of gastronomy for a place where there’s sand beneath your table.


Restaurant Apolonia, Alcúdia

Tasting-menu restaurant in an Alcúdia boutique hotel

2019, Mar 18th

The warren-like walled town of Alcúdia is the location of the new Restaurant Apolonia – part of the British-owned boutique hotel Can Mostatxins Frare. Park your car outside the old walls and a few minutes’ walk takes you into this historic town’s maze of appealing streets. The chic 11-room Can Mostatxins Frare is in a tranquil lane just off Alcúdia’s main square.
