We first came here over 25 yrs ago and it was good then, but over the past five to ten years it has just become such a consistently good place that you just have to come and trust me you will come back every time you visit Palma. The ambience is fun, stylish and the service second to none...they remember... More

A great menu, fantastic food and excellent service make Forn so hard to beat. It's very accessible from the best hotels near the Cathedral and 5 minutes walk. Not the best venue for an aperitif so choose from may nearby including a champagne bar. If you book ahead make sure you get a table on the top floor and don't... More

This restaurant had been recommended by family who visited last year and so we booked for our wedding anniversary on our short trip to Palma. The staff on arrival were excellent and we sat at the bar to have a drink before going to the table. This set the night off in the perfect way with a gin and tonic... More

The restaurant was very quiet for lunch so lacking in ambience. The waiter hovered too much. However, the food was good and service efficient so would try again during a busier season.

Great ambience, excellent food, sophisticated restaurant (with tablecloths). Interesting selection of tapas - none of the standard fare, so if you fancy trying something different this is the place for you. Very decent a la carte menu too and great wine list with good choices and not all ridiculously expensive.

Location ok; good food but not outstanding; great service by Argentinian waiter. A bit pricey. Have had better experiences in terms of ambience and food but yes would come back - but just ok overall I liked tast club more - more ambience, better food but ok place Vermuteria also better next to theatre and la Caixa Art Deco building
