Restaurante Toque – Federico Garcia Lorca 6, Palma.

Restaurante Torque can be found a few minutes away from the historical quarter of Palma. Fusion cooking is very much a theme here with traditional Spanish food blending with Belgian cuisine. The restaurant is noted for its duck leg with apple sauce, its excellent Beef Stroganoff and American grills. Whilst the menu changes with the seasons, pigs’ trotters, snails and rabbit are in evidence as is excellent home-made ice cream. A starter and a main course or a main and pudding can be purchased for just less than €30 and a limited lunch menu is available for under €15.

Restaurante Ca Na Percia – Lloret de Vista Alegre.

If you are a mushroom lover then this is the place to go. Morels, Boletus, Oyster and other regional specialities are served here on their own or partnered with other ingredients. Mushrooms are not the only food on offer, the glazed Iberico ham is very tempting are the salads the restaurant takes pride in presenting

Bar Nou – Calle Antoni Maura 13, Pollensa

A very popular restaurant with the locals, Bar Nou gives itself no airs and graces. It serves a variety of fresh, locally caught fish and serves up staggeringly good authentic homemade paella. If you want to dine al fresco ask the friendly waiting staff who, room permitting, will be more than happy to seat you on the terrace. Your bill will come close to €30.
Open: All week with the exception of Sunday evening and Monday. Credit Cards accepted. Booking is advised.

Taberna De La Boveda – St Llotja, Palma

La Boveda can provide a great introduction to Spanish cuisine or reacquaint the hungry diner with some old favourites. It’s an atmospheric place where the Basque-Spanish fusion results in excellent tapas, with shellfish and snails a main feature. Prices are well within €30. If you wanted to work up an appetite you could go for a walk around the old fish market and the cathedral, both of which are close to the restaurant.
Open: Mon-Sat. No booking. Credit Cards accepted.

El Celler – Calle Hospital 46, Petra

In the Es Pla region of Majorca it is not uncommon to find restaurants situated in old wine or olive oil cellars. El Celler is one such restaurant. The specialism here is all kinds of meat cooked over a wood fired oven. The style is rustic, the food is as robust as you will find and infused with the flavours of this part of Spain. Try the local style bread as a starter with garlic and olives to prepare your palate for the meaty treats to come. €30 should enable you to dine in style.
Open: All week with the exception of Monday. No booking. Credit Cards Accepted

What to do in Majorca

When you visit Majorca in summer, you might not want to move further than the beach because it is the perfect time to get a tan or try your hand at snorkeling. From late January to the whole month of February, it may not be warm enough to enjoy the beach which means more time to explore the island. Even if you have hired a car to take you sightseeing, there is no reason not to explore the countryside on foot. About four million almond trees will be in bloom in the valleys and plains. January and February are traditionally low seasons with more affordable accommodation and flights. The temperature is simply perfect during these months and a day’s cycling or hiking may involve visiting one of the wineries or a farm to learn how the Majorcan sausage is made. Although most of the resorts will be close during the low season, it is still suggested to pay a visit to the island so that you will learn how the locals live.

Although most of the towns have been touched by tourism, there are still towns that cling to their old traditions and culture. There is renewed enthusiasm for old cuisine and you will find restaurants serving dishes that you have never tasted in your life. If you fail to see the almond blossoms and the flowering cherry trees, you have the option of observing how grapes and olives are harvested. Local life is what you should try when you visit Majorca for the weekend. Get the real vacation you have always dreamt off when the summer crowds are nowhere to be seen and you have the place all by yourself.
