I was surprised to find they had no idea that there was one in Palma de Mallorca. I was in the harbor of Palma, and had no time to go, but I had a pint on the terrace in lovely peace and quiet, which I'm sure would be full in summer.
The best "ensalmadas" (type of cake) of the island and therefore, of the world. It is also worth trying the "cuartos", "crespells", "robiols", ... Cafe, unequaled ice cream due to it's old fashioned making, highlights the hazelnut, or apricot. Prices can not be beaten. There is no place cheaper. An oasis in the city, an absolute must see.
The authentic part of Palma. We have been delighted with this area in the heart of the capital. Ideal for having a coffee or a beer with a good sandwich attached to a "crisis" price (less than 4€). We also loved the friendliness and treatment of Fernando and Alice. Cleanliness, friendliness and quality, three ingredients that are in the Picnic Minyones. Open Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 7:00pm and Saturdays from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
After booking a table with a view in advance for a romantic dinner, I found that we got placed in the second row next to the window by the car park. When I complained they told me that it was a window. I got up and left. Probably the place is closed, it will not be a great loss.
In the Balearics, there are 5 Cappuccinos. I've only seen the Paseo Marítimoy location, and another one, though I can't remember where. They have special services, like Business functions that include breakfast and snacks, and they celebrate birthdays, weddings, and christenings. The music is excellent, really good chill out music. It's great to hear very nice music in the background. What can you have? Coffees, smoothies, ice creams, chocolates, etc. The service is very good, but sometimes a little slow, but hey, with so many people, it's normal!
It pinzell is a bar that is located in the basement of a palace in the old town. Its vault has a special warmth to the place, inviting you to spend hours and hours over a beer or a 'pa amb oli ", have a tapas and even a good gin and tonic. If you need an excuse to go to the local, every month there is a Trad Session and the occasional poetry reading. If you prefer to watch football, you can go to watch the games on TV.
Baisakhi is on the seafront of the city of Palma, next to the Hotel Costa Azul. Baisakhi has a traditional Indian kitchen where the owner and chef, Bhupendra Gupta, brings creativity and imagination to life. Try a unique tasting menu with multiple sauces, which varies constantly. It is possible to request the vegetarian version. We were struck by the originality of the entry, full of rose petals.
I went to this restaurant after reading reviews on minube. And I can say that the steak tartare was awesome, I've attached a photo of the dish, but it taste better than it looks ... Fantastic harbour views. Nice try.
Byblo's Café is a great place in the neighborhood of Archduke, that is very close to the Plaza Espana, it has terrace where you can eat and drink for a reasonable price. A nice little place where you can enjoy tapas and a caña. It has a very interesting tapas menu, including sandwiches and burgers that are fabulous.
Good music, food and drink.
- Let the food be local produce and of outstanding quality (done)
- Let the coffee be perfect (done)
- Let it be possible to buy music and have a gin and tonic (done)
All in all, 100% recommended, especially, the concerts ;)
Restaurant that's very cozy, it has very good customer service, and I loved the food, especially because you see how they make it all the time I've been back several times and have liked it in all aspects as well as is also great on the money issue.
