The Sea Club at Hotel Cap Rocat, Palma
The Posh One - A former military fortress located in a secluded area of the bay of Palma. Located on the waterfront, the Sea Club is an open-air restaurant which offers dishes cooked in a traditional Mallorcan firewood oven and grill. Pricey but worth it for that view!
Badal Burger, Palma
The Family-Friendly One - This neo-gastro burger joint has been turning heads over the past few years in Palma, with a lot of visitors claiming it to be the 'best burger' they've ever had, including a fantastic kids menu!
The Room, Santa Catalina, Palma
The Budget Citybreak One - This fresh and simple bistro has been recommended by The Guardian for its good value - with three course menus at just 13 euros (including a drink!).
Es Cellar, Petra
The Rustic One - "Step down off the street and into this wonderfully cavernous cellar restaurant with soaring ceilings and old wine barrels. Its specialities are barbecued meats, roast lamb and roast suckling pig, but it also rustles up Mallorcan classics like arros brut (dirty rice)" - The Lonely Planet
The Rural One - Set in the middle of the countryside, this restaurant offers traditional Mallorcan grub and is a great excuse to drive out into the more peaceful and less touristy area of the island.
Ca Na Toneta, Caimari
The Pure One - This country gem is run by a bunch of food enthusiasts who are dedicated to supporting local produce. Ca Na Toneta has a seasonal menu that works in harmony with the Mallorcan environment. In their own words: "through direct communication with fisherman, locals and trade colleagues we have created honest country cooking with a touch of flair."
Simply Fosh, Palma
The Arty One - Winning Trip Advisor's Certificate of Excellence 2014, this restaurant - run by top chef Mark Fosh - is perfect for those who like their food displayed like a work of art in front of them.
Cellar Sa Premsa, Palma
The One With A History - This restaurant was founded back in 1958 and has kept the same character and soul. "This cavernous hall will get you back on the Spanish track – it’s about as traditional as it comes, all bullfighting posters and slightly surly waiters, but the cooking is spot-on." - The Guardian
Es Guix, Pollensa
The Paradise One - “The splendidly isolated local restaurant, in a converted hunting lodge along a rough private road. With its renowned menu of mountain dishes and its own, bracingly cold spring-water swimming pool, it attracts foodies and families from all over the island.” - The Independent.
Santi Taura, Lloseta
The Popular One - Hosted by a famous chef of the same name, this super popular eatery must be booked in advance - everyone and their dog wants to taste what this place has on offer.
