Restaurants of Mallorca: a delectable route!

10/11/2021

Traditional and modern, serving fusion food, ecological, international or Mediterranean cuisine. And all of them with a finishing touch to differentiate them and make them very, very special.

Whether you are a resident or you intend to spend a few days on the island, today we present to you a selection of Rialto Living’s favourite restaurants on Mallorca.

Is your mouth watering yet? Well, let’s begin this delicious gourmet experience!

Flavours from another world

Our first stop is literally a hop and a skip away from Rialto Living. At the restaurant De Tokio a Lima (C. Sant Feliu, 1), Peruvian and Japanese food converge in delightful harmony as we enjoy splendid views of the emblematic Paseo del Borne.

Speaking of fusion food, another essential port of call is the restaurant Arume (C. Sant Miquel, 83), where chef Tomeu Martí elevates the collision of Asian and Mediterranean cuisine to an artform. An explosion of flavours and dishes, like the crunchy king prawns with curry and mojo picón, which he prepares in front of diners in pure Japanese style.

Along the same gastronomy lines, chef Simon Petutschnig, of the restaurant Fera (C. Concepció, 4), has managed to masterfully combine Asian and Mediterranean flavours, which you can try in the special set menus with wine pairings which he makes up, including an exquisite vegetarian option

Mallorcan and Moroccan fusion? Well yes! And it’s every bit as delicious and surprising as you may imagine! At the bar Muaré (C. Francesc Barceló i Combis, 4), you can enjoy delicacies such as halloumi cheese, aubergine pasta or their refined ghanoush, among others.

Traditional recipes

In the style of an old English club, and with a somewhat clandestine air, Tast Club (C. Sant Jaume, 6) is an elegant, warm, intimate restaurant where you can enjoy the selection of croquettes (baby squid, Thai chicken, penny bun mushroom, etc.) as well as excellent meat and fish dishes, and their classic cocktails as an aperitif. 

Another place where you can try some traditional tapas is El Camino (C. de Can Brondo, 4), which has the look of a cosmopolitan bistro and an emblematic bartop where heaven is attainable with their Andalusian-style squid, cod fritters or fideuá with green aioli, and more.

A classic in Palma is Patrón Lunares (C. Fábrica, 30), a bar located in the Santa Catalina neighbourhood, with a name that comes from a well-known fisherman of a bygone age. True to its history, this place pays tribute to its past with its humble, sincere cuisine, which gives local fish the importance it deserves.

And if what you are looking for is a restaurant that serves traditional food with a touch of creative flair, you are sure to remember the aubergines stuffed with partridge, the poularde and foie gras cannelloni or the frito mallorquín with egg at Casa Maruka (C. Reina María Cristina, 7) for a very long time to come.

Gastronomy temples outside of Palma

On the shore of the idyllic Port of Sóller, Patiki (Camí del Far, 2) is a select beach bar set on the sand itself and serving up food that is colouristic, tasty, simple, organic and natural, based on high-quality, local produce.

In the heart of the Sierra de Tramuntana, in Caimari, Ca na Toneta (C. de s’Horitzó, 21) is a kind of artisanal gastronomy workshop, incredibly respectful of the traditions of Mallorca which, devoid of bravura or any grand artistic deportment, applies exactly the right technique to each product to ensure everything turns out just as it should.

A similar thing occurs at Molico (C. de la Eslèsia, 21), the Sencelles gastrobar with a terrace that affords beautiful views of the Sierra de Tramuntana as you enjoy good food, drink and live music in a chill atmosphere.

And of course… the Café Rialto

An oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Palma. That is Café Rialto. A relaxed, comfortable space, and one full of style, where natural sunlight pours through the huge skylight in the ceiling and brightens life up.

In our own gastronomy space, you can try delicious dishes made with love using fresh, local produce. Breakfasts, lunches and à la carte recommendations, as well as homemade confectionary and a wide variety of beverages. 

And if you feel so inclined, afterwards you can help your food go down by taking a pleasant stroll around Rialto Living, and discovering the fashion, furniture, gifts, artworks, rugs, fragrances and books we have prepared for you.
