Palma eats - a food guide to Palma de Mallorca

Updated: May 26, 2023

During my semester studying in Mallorca, I spent many days and nights enjoying the food and beverages that Palma has to offer. Every Tuesday night, during "Ruta Martiana", we would roam the streets of the old town, looking for the next place to get Tapas and drinks. I was personally always on the hunt for some good ice cream and was never disappointed. During the day, we'd study in one of the cute coffees, discussing environmental problems or conjugating Spanish verbs over a big cup of cappuccino and some carrot cake (I'm looking at you, Mise en Place!)

Living with a native Mallorquian family, I was also introduced to their favorite restaurants around the city that I grew to love and that have become traditions whenever I go back to visit.

So why not share the joy? Here are my favorite spots around the city:


TAST Tapas (Tapas)

l’ambigú (Tapas)

Vida Meta (daily new menu)

La Tagliatella (Italian)

Ostaria Casa Rosita (Italian)

Quinta Avenida (Sushi)

Mercado Gastronómico San Juan (food hall with all kinds of food and outdoor seating to mingle with the locals)

St. Ambros Ristorante e Pizzeria (Italian)

Ombu Tapas & Cocktails Gaudi Terraza Café (Restaurante & Pizzeria)

Gaudi Cocktail Bar & Food


Purobeach Palma

Assaona Gastrobeach Club Palma

49 Steps (Bar & Grill at the harbor)


Mise en Place

Surry Hills Coffee

Arabay Flagship Store Palma

La Molienda Bisbe

Café Riutort

Rosevelver Bakery

Mariola’s Bakery

Mistral Coffee House

Fika Farina (known for cinnamon + cardamon buns)

I can't wait to go back to Mallorca and add to the list, as there are always new places to discover. If you try any on the list or have questions when visiting Mallorca, don't hesitate to send your questions my way.

Love, Lena
