Mallorca

iStock International
Majorca’s wide range of restaurants and cuisines cater to a variety of price points and preferences. As you might imagine, seafood is bountiful, as is locally-grown, fresh produce. Like all Spaniards, Majorcans eat their meals late so don’t expect lunch much before 1:30 and the dinner hour begins around 8:30. Dress at even the toniest spots is casual.

Top Restaurants in Mallorca

C'an March

Locals and tourists alike come to this simple neighborhood bar and restaurant for creative Majorcan dishes such as sea bass in lemon sauce or chocolate brownies with grilled pears. The daily “menu del dia” lunch special is always reliable.

Caballito de Mar

This excellent, boldly modern seafood restaurant is popular with Majorca´s movers and shakers. You can’t go wrong with the grilled shellfish dishes, but the fideua, a seafood paella, is also excellent – order it with pasta instead of rice.

Celler Sa Premsa
