365 Restaurante - Son Brull Hotel & Spa

365, the restaurant inside the hotel Son Brull, an elegantly restored 18th-century monastery outside of charming Pollença, has no a la carte menu. Instead, Michelin-star chef Andreu Segura offers two nightly six-or-eight-course tasting menus, one of which is entirely vegetarian. Both offer wine pairings. Each dish is artistically presented, leveraging local ingredients. Although expensive, the excellent food and overall experience are worth it.

This nondescript bar and bodega in the charming, small inland town of Biniaraix is a local favorite that has been discovered by the many hiking groups that love exploring the island. Sit at tables outside in the village square, watch the families and hikers stroll by and eat delicious simple food.

Bar Bosch

While Bar Bosch might not stand out at first—it has the standard old-school waiters, a worn counter laden with tapas and a tourist crowd— regulars know it’s a legendary favorite among local intellectuals and that it serves the best grilled sandwiches in town. During lunch and in the early evening, finding a seat at one of the outdoor tables may be a challenge, but it’s well worth the wait. Order a slice of the famously thick tortilla along with a lomo y queso (pork loin and cheese) sandwich while indulging in some of Palma’s best people-watching.

Food at Ca'n Joan De S'aigo, Mallorca, Spain

Ca'n Joan De S'aigo

An institution in Palma, this café is famed as the city’s oldest gelato parlor (it was founded in 1700). Savor the homemade gelato and delicious ensaïmada pastries: the flaky breaded treat made with a variety of sweet and savory fillings (including chocolate, sausage and pumpkin).

Ca's Patró March

This waterside seafood spot in the town of Deia has been an island must-dine for years. It’s the restaurant where scenes of the Night Manager were filmed. Celebrities, locals, boaters and travelers arrive in bathing suits and flip-flops but just because the dress is casual, don’t think you can walk in. Reservations are a must.

Outdoor Lounge at Ca's Xorc, Mallorca, Spain

Ca's Xorc

This restaurant set in an old finca boutique hotel is located in the hills above the town of Sóller. The dining room is where the olive press originally sat, so the space is airy, with high, vaulted ceilings, and tables are not placed too close together. As expected, the extensive wine list is excellent, and dishes are refined and delicious. Favorite dishes include scallops with prawns and mushrooms and herb-crusted Tramuntana lamb.

Cafè Riutort

“Café Riutort is a magnificent place, completely removed from the concept of breakfast that global chains have. Starting the day with any of the offerings on their menu is an enjoyable experience for me when I am in Palma.” —Insider Rosa Esteva of Cortana

Exterior View -  Casa Fernando, Mallorca, Spain

Casa Fernando

Among the most authentic of the city’s seafood spots, according to locals, Casa Fernando is located in the Ciudad Jardin district. It still operates in the traditional manner: guests pick their meals not from a menu, but from a water tank holding the day’s catch. In customary fashion, the price of the meal is calculated by the weight of your chosen fish, which is grilled to perfection.


A small wine bar in Port Sóller, near the Jumeirah Port Soller hotel, this casual spot is a great place for a pre- or post- dinner drink.

Outdoor Lounge at Coast by East, Mallorca, Spain

Coast by East

German-owned Coast by East might be an offshoot of a Hamburg empire, but this restaurant in Port Adriano is all Mallorca.

Food at Duke, Mallorca, Spain


The uber-relaxed Duke is a surfer paradise, which is understandable when you consider the restaurants is owned and operators by surfer dudes. Order burgers and light bites at the picnic bench style tables and enjoy the young vibe of the small, cozy eatery.

Bar at El Olivo, Mallorca, Spain

El Olivo

One of the best meals I’ve had on the island was in the fine-dining restaurant at La Residencia. Located in a 500-year-old olive press, it is a sublimely romantic spot; during the five-course chef’s menu, which included an unforgettable foie gras-stuffed pigeon served on the terrace, my husband and I witnessed an ecstatic wedding proposal.
