The only bar with such a great view of the cathedral. Nice to sit with a sangria and take in the view. Okay prices for a jug of sangria. Nice staff. A few tourists~ not too busy.

I know you normally have to pay for anywhere that has a view but this was just over the top. Nearly Euro 20.00 for two coffees and two croissants. The view of the lake and Cathedral are stunning but the prices are just not worth it. If you are on a budget avoid this place.

Expensive Rip off. 0,25L water = 3,45€. Only bought it because the prices weren't in the menu. Other prices are also too expensive

For a location, the Guiness House is hard to beat. A view across the lake (with its attendant fountain) to the magnificent cathedral of Palma city - stunning. The price for a small (250ml) beer: €4.75 - hideous! A diet cola: €4.50 - staggering! Waitress attitude: doing us a favour by being there at all, and most reluctant to issue... More

nice location by the lake with the Palma cathedral as the back drop. the food was well cooked, portions a bit small but drink expensive a Fanta cost over 4.50 euros a bottle of corolla only cost 50 cents more , service on the day not too bad, had water misters on to keep everyone cool.

I am by nature very easy going and we popped in to have a lunchtime drink as the views of the cathedral are indeed beautiful from here. I have no idea what was wrong with the waitress but she was beyond rude. my husband even attempted to leave a tip and she slammed it down on the table (it was... More

Brilliant location, offering uninstructed views of the cathedral behind a lovely lake and fountain. Even has water vapour spraying from the canopy every minute or so to keep you refreshed. Paid €6.50 for an Amstel on a Friday, and €4 on a Sunday when the whole of Palma was a lot quieter. No breeze where the bar is so make... More

This has to be the worst managed bar/ restaurant I have ever sat in. The service was so appalling, I lost count how many people walked out! The staff were truly dreadful, rude and didn't seem that bothered. We sat there for half an hour and only waited that long as we had a table in the sun. After this... More
