“typical tourist trap”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

the placa itself is nice if it would not be for the cheap restaurants with their uninviting terraces - no style whatsoever

“Tourist Trap”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

Frankly I wouldn't bother, the fact that the first thing you see when you walk into this beautiful historic square is Burger King just about sums it up. It was also the only place in Palma where we were hassled by restaurant touts and there were also a fair few unsavoury types hanging around. Such a shame as it really is a beautiful square with some great architecture.

“Rose & paella in the square in February”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

We found a sunny restaurant and drank rose wine and ate paella in the sunshine in early February. What more could you ask for?
