My boyfriend, his family and I were lured into this restaurant by the nice interior and the good reviews on TripAdvisor. As soon as we sat at the table, the waiter brought us bread, aioli and olives. We ordered two salads which were quite cheap and two paellas. When the plates got on our table we were stunned: the two... More

We'd been to the restaurant next door and noticed this new pop up Mexican restaurant, attached to Carmen tapas. As we had eaten, we just had some cocktails. Additionally, fantastic company from the Mexican owner/cocktail maker who is based in Palma. Lovely friendly guy who made our visit, and made us some bespoke, off menu authentic Mexican cocktails - lethal... More

Judging by other reviews, there was more to this restaurant than we thought ! Looked like it only had about 20 covers, one chef, one waiter and one kitchen assistant. You are practially sitting in the kitchen. All our food and wine was excellent and so was the price for the centre of Palma.

We went to the informal bar conjoined with the restaurant. Service a little slow as restaurant was busy. But they made us vegetarian tapas to order, mojitos and Piso sours, and we enjoyed very much.

This is two restaurants, one serving local food, another Mexican food with I think a common kitchen. Food was good - we had Paella and a couple of mexican dishes to start off. The staff is a bit dismissive as other reviewers have said eg a young couple on next table did not want any alcohol and got what could... More

We went there for a late lunch. We started with the typical Patatas Bravas, and my god they were the best we ever had! The sauce spicy as it should be, the potatoes cut in different forms, some of them were almost like crisps. Second we took the gambas with garlic, very tasty, pre-pealed beasts. Last but not least we... More

While we were dining near the front window, we saw one very fast moving cockroach(at least 1" in length) on the wall. Their reaction was very casual and one of the staff came over and killed it. Few minutes later another one near our feet on the floor. Needless to say we all got up, this time they expected us... More

Went there for dinner. The place is nice. We ordered some jamón and croquetas as starters, then fideuà (a kind of paella made with pasta instead of rice). Every excellent and abundant. Service also good. A must-go!

We showed up 20 minutes from lunch closing time and the manager (owner) insisted we have the vegetarian paella (even though it would take a while to prepare). It was delicious! This is an authentic place on a side street near the cathedral. Not a tourist trap. Several options for vegetarians.

Food was good, and we went here a couple of times for the atmosphere, and the jovial host. Wine was good too, particularly for a house wine.
