Best Places to Eat in Costa Palma

Palma is situated in the Balearic Sea, with the Spanish mainland to the west, North Africa to the south and Italy to the east – so it's hardly surprising that it is quite the cultural melting pot. This heady blend extends to this port city's cuisine, too. We have put together a few of the very best places to eat in Palma. Before you make your trip, be sure to take advantage of our Palma Airport transfers.

Local food

Since Majorca is a part of Spain, it makes sense that the majority of its restaurants are dedicated to the la comida of the mother country. One of Palma's very best Spain-centric eateries is La Parada del Mar, a deceptively simple looking establishment that prepares excellent seafood dishes. If, for instance, you love fried calamari or gamba – or grilled hake or bass, you probably should pay this popular haunt a visit. For a variety of Mediterranean delights with an emphasis on Spanish fare, Sadrassana Restaurant Cocteleria is well worth checking out. Formerly a Majorcan manor house of 19th-century provenance, Sadrassana is enjoyed as much for its welcoming ambience as it is for its highly rated menu.

A taste of Africa

Despite Palma's proximity to North Africa, it is South African cuisine that informs the much-liked Crow's Nest. Here, you can expect to choose from traditional dishes that hail from that part of the world, including seared tuna and ostrich fillet. If the idea of sampling delicious cooking that has a distinctly Cote D'Ivoire, Nigerian or Guinean influence, be sure and head to Restaurant La Teranga.

Viva Italia

There are more than 250 Italian eateries in Palma. For the traditional flavour of Napoli, and the opportunity to sample one of many classic pizzas, pay a visit to Mozzatura. From pizza fritta to the original Pizza Margherita, there's sure to be something that will satisfy your southern Italy food cravings. At Sandro Restaurante, you can expect a menu that is bursting with Italian taste goodness. Specialities include Cacio e Pepe rigatoni and a tagliata that features a succulent beef fillet that has been marinated in balsamic vinegar and is served with a crisp parmesan salad.

Palma is a very cosmopolitan city, which means you're sure to find a number of eateries that meet with your expectations, as well as those that will bring you new taste sensations. Whether you love British pub grub, authentic Asian cooking or Mexican street food, we don't think you'll leave Palma disappointed.
