A modern design, not romantic, but quite OK for a weekday dinner . Good service. Quite OK price for a three course dinner. Interesting options to choose from. And quite good. The only negative was that I got some tomatoe cream soup as starter instead of the tomatoe mozzarella dish.

This restaurant is the type I like. Open kitchen, nothing hidden. I sat at the bar deliberately to watch. It was a joy to observe professionals in action. Everything prepared carefully and cooked with precision and methodical expertise, no fuss no rush just steady progress to a completed dish. I watched as each dish was plated and observed huge attention... More

The food is immaculate (but a minus point for using duck foie gras – sorry) and the team very nice. The mushroom-cappuccino we had there was perfect and the rest of our dinner – including pasta, fish, meat and dessert as well. The ambiance is stylish, cool (a bit cold for my taste) and sophisticated. Great for lunch.

Went for lunch here as a family of four, including two young children. Very little to choose from, and over-priced. Clientele mainly business people on their lunch break. Went here based on reviews on tripadvisor, however very disappointed.

I booked lunch at Basic on the basis of a number of reviews I’d seen that said it was excellent and I’m pleased to say we were not disappointed. The restaurant itself is just outside of the old town and slightly hidden down a side street, but worth seeking out. Their philosophy is for high quality food, at competitive prices... More

One of the best in Palma. Easy and simple dishes only looks that way but you can see a lot of work on each piece of art you can try there.

Basic is situated close to the train/bus stations and behind the big El Corte Ingles store. When we first walked passed it a 11am the shutters were down and it didn't look very attractive on an equally scruffy street. We had read the good reviews and wanted to give it a try so we went back that night. It looks... More
