The Tapas Club|
Fifteen minutes` stroll out of the centre of town lies the Portixol area; a once run-down fishing quarter that has been spangled up with renovated fishermens` cottages, a smart hotel and a cluster of excellent restaurants around a small beach. In a prime spot at the far end of the beach, the Tapas Club offers cocktails and plates of tapas arranged artfully on the gleaming bar.
Paseo del Portixol, +34 971 248 604.
A perennial favourite with locals and visitors ? and it`s easy to see why. Boveda combines a busy tapas bar at the front of the restaurant with a slightly more formal dining area behind. Perch at the bar for slices of tortilla, spicy albondigas and grazing plates of local cheeses and hams or reserve a table (necessary) for hearty slabs of veal and pork and simply grilled, locally caught fish.
Paseo Sagrera, 3, +34 971 72 00 26.
Tucked up a side street around the corner from the theatre, Bellver is about as far away from Palma`s gleaming 21st- century tapas bars as it`s possible to imagine. Dark and shadowy, with shelves lined with dusty bottles and wine barrels, and rickety wooden tables scattered around the small space, it is steeped in history, atmosphere and the smell of spicy pork frying on the tiny grill beside the bar.
Calle Serinya 2, +34 971 247 96.
C`an Joan de Saigo
If you`re after a traditional Mallorquin breakfast, this the place. C`an Joan de Saigo has been serving up ensaimadas ? the island`s equivalent of a croissant ? since its opening in 1700. For something with so much heritage it`s unshowy ? and pleasingly untouristy - tucked away down a small alley in the heart of the old town.
Calle Can Sanc, 10.
A veggie institution in Palma for 20 years, eating at Bon Lloc is also about what`s fresh and available on the day. The set menu is created according to what is available from the market in the morning, with three main choices and two desserts.
Sant Feliu 7, +34 971 781 617.
Popular with locals and always busy, this is an ideal place for a quick refuel if you`re on a shopping trip in the centre of town. Plates have coloured rims according to price and you can help yourself to the cold tapas on the bar, or order from the very reasonably priced menu of pintxos, tapas and raciones.
Calle Union 28, +34 971 72 98 78.
Cappuccino Grand Cafe
Although there are now several Cappuccinos in Palma, this is one of the oldest and most charming. Situated in a converted Mallorcan palacio.
San Miguel 53.
As the name might suggest, the wine takes precedence here - although the tapas are good, particularly the gambas al ajillo (sizzling prawns). Marketing as itself as La Tapa de Vino, the idea is to try as many different wines as tapas plates.
Apuntadores 24, +34 971 723 852.
Like Tast, at Lizarran you can help yourself to the pintxos on the bar ? slices of French bread pinned to prawns, pates, jamon serrano or roasted peppers on toothpicks. Prices are excellent and the pace is fast ? this is not the place for a romantic supper a dos.
Centro Commercial Porto Pi (top floor), +34 971 403 358.
Easy to miss, Sa Roqueta is a small wood-panelled restaurant in the Portixol area, which keeps its perfect paellas under the radar, with just a small panel on the wall announcing its existence. The fish is straight out of the sea and the cooking is some of the best in the city. Their arroz marinara - shellfish in a saffron-laced broth ? is a delight.
Carre Sirena 11, +34 971 244 658.
