“Good octopus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

The service here is totally different to many local restaurants. In fact, after being practically ignored in other busy (and not so busy!) places it was refreshing to be welcomed and be looked after. The octopus was really good. Nice wines. When my friend went to have a cigarette with a fellow diner the waiter asked if he should bring her wine out. That's service :-)

“Outstanding service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

In search of fish baked in a salt crust, we were recommended this delightful restaurant by our Hotel, Puro.
Just up the laneway from our hotel, we entered a newish restaurant with old fashioned family values and service.
Our whole bass baked in a salt crust was outstanding, and a very generous size fish to share between two of us. The wine list was excellent, and when we ordered wine by the glass, the owner of the restaurant explained to us that their house wines are outstanding, and he is one of the only restaurants in Palma to stock it. The rose definitely lived up to his rave review.
The restaurant is in a restored building in old Palma and has a lovely atmosphere. But it is the generous service of the owner and his staff that really shone. They delivered the food and wine with passion and care. You could tell they really loved this place!
We were too full for dessert, but managed to squeeze in an excellent crème catalan. We were then offered complimentary sticky wine, and when we said we would share one glass between us, they even seemed disappointed to not give us more!
We would definitely come back to this lovely place.

“Very good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

We had a lovely evening in this restaurant; the food was great - we enjoyed grilled fish (sea bass was excellent), the spinach with raisins & pinenuts - a speciality from Palma - was really nice and... the chocolat cake is to die for! great local wine too.
Service was a bit too much at times for me - but can’t complain about that. this is a great place to eat.

“Great evening!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

This is a really nice restaurant, with brilliant service. I consider myself to be a fooodie, and this place lived up to the great reviews.
The grilled octopus was amazing, so was the monkfish. Great wines as well.
Will go here again next time in Palma, no doubt!!

“Great service and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Visited this place because of Tripadvisor and was very happy with everything.
Service was thoughtful and warm. The food and wine selection are great.

The only thing is that the paella rice was slightly undercooked, just a few minutes more to be perfect. But the overall seafood dishes (which is all we ate) were amazing. Great spanish flavour and just the kind of experience you would want when visiting Palma de Mallorca.
