“Beautiful restaurant and view but food average.”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

I had found Il paridiso on trip advisor and thought we would check it out for the views. To keep this review simple, il paridiso should really get some chefs in that will make the food equally as good as the view and lovely decor inside the place. The staff were very helpful, even gave us a lift back in to palma in the restraurants own jeep for half the price of a normal taxi.

This place is not cheap either and pasta dishes at 15-20 euro should have been better quality. Even my salad to start was looking a little tired although tasted ok, the curried dressing was nice.

I probably wont return which is a shame as i did enjoy my evening but i can't look past the fact the food was for me a 3 or 4 out of 10.

“Okay - wonderful view”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We were recommended to IL Paradiso by our hotel, looked it up on trip advisor and reserved a table. We asked for a table on the balcony. When we arrived it was a lovely sunny evening but quite windy - we were seated at the end of the balcony, l felt l was in a corridor. The views were spectacular. We moved inside because it was not a good position. This did not present them with a problem. We ordered drinks - then our food. The drinks came with the starters not as aperitif's.
The food ordered was good - not memorable basically average - the service? personally l felt a little on the arrogant side.
The restaurant was very busy and it was not a relaxing atmosphere, waiters rushing around etc etc. One thing we did observe in Majorca is that there are no set areas for smoking or non - smoking or if there are you are never asked what your preference is. At IL Paradiso everyone around us was smoking, extremely off putting.
When it came for us to leave we were asked if we needed a taxi, to which we replied yes, automatically the restaurants own vehicle appeared!. The driver was good and very courteous, - the taxi cost 2 Euros more, we were not given a choice.
Would we return? Probably, but it would not be on our top 5 list.

“Great view, only good food”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

There are many good restaurants in and around Palma, and this certainly one of them. A fabulous building and wonderful views. The service was better than most. We all had fish of one sort or another, all of which was good, above average, but not spectacular. The home made tiramisu and local wine were the highlights.
It's not brilliant value and the piped music could be chosen with more care to enhance the ambiance.

“Million dollar view but average food”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

I've been here three times during the last months but the only reason was the view.
The food is average and unfortunately contains flavor enhancers. We had fish, steak and pasta and the everything was ok bit definitely not worth the price.
Moreover, the staff was arrogant and kept forgetting things and never filled up our glasses. I know the football cup is going on but we felt like the waiters were drinking and watching soccer instead of paying attention.
However, I know I'll be back next Time I want to impress someone with the amazing view...
