Great setting, very friendly service and stunning food. The homemade falafel with pear chutney was one of the best starters I have ever tasted. Sitting outside beside a majestic church in the evening was really memorable, and if you like beer the Rosa Blanca is...highly recommended!More

Visiting this restaurant I was hoping for a delicious meal. We had the tuna tartare and chicken curry. Fantastic meal! The owner came out to check on us and gave that extra touch of service that most of us appreciate

This is one of the best informal restaurants we found in our stay in Palma. At the back of Saint Eulalia Church we came across the restaurant for lunch. The Iberian Pork meal was so good came back a couple of nights later for a...second helping ! She who must be obeyed and two wonderful meals including Cod which I am told was also excellent. The service was superb and the staff very helpful. Highly recommended Although we managed to have a table for the evening I would recommend booking ahead. We will be backMore

We had just made a pit-stop for a refreshing jug of Sangria in a little bar, contemplated lunch there but decided that the menu was not to our liking (we have an aversion to menus with photos of the food). So off we trundled down...a rather uninteresting side street towards the church and happened to chance upon l'ambigu - on a corner of a quiet road. A lovely shaded terrace with a calm and relaxing atmosphere. The delightful waitress and my wife somehow struck up a conversation in French and we were seated in an instant. Being veggies we were delighted to find an abundance of choice and settled for a bowl of gazpacho each, padron peppers, patatas bravas and a roast goats cheese salad. Wow! each dish was superb - the gazpacho probably ranks as the best I have ever had. The salad came with mixed leaves, strawberries and other fruit and a wonderful fruit coulis / glaze. The sauce for the patatas was sublime, hot, slightly smokey with a herbaceous undertone. Due to the litre of previously consumed sangira we didn't bother with alcohol. This light lunch with water and coffee came to around 45 euros - well worth every cent and when I return to Palma I will go back there in a heartbeat.More

We spend each summer in Mallorca, and this restaurant is one of our favorites. It offers a variety of different Mediterranean and specifically Spanish fare, and there are plenty of options for vegetarians and flexitarians. The wine and beer options are solid (I especially recommend...the Mallorcan beer), as are the cocktails/mocktails. The terrace offers outdoor dining right by Santa Eulalia Church, and the interior is comfortably intimate, with tables configurable for two or for larger parties (we’ve been here with up to six people). The folks who run the place are friendly, professional, and attentive, willing to go the extra mile. We love the place.More

Amazing !!! Just moved in Palma few weeks ago and my husband and I fall in love with L’Ambigù!!! Small terrace behind Santa Eulalia church, the service from Laure was exceptional but the food was outstanding !! Fresh ingredients beautifully prepared, good portions ! The...secret Iberica pork is just melting in your mouth . Chicken curry was also really nice. The whole dinner was very reasonably priced and we will back very soon. Might become our local canteen !More
