Sa Llotja – Cala d’Or and Portocolom
One of our favourite seafront restaurants on the island is actually to be found in two different fabulous locations. We’re talking about ‘Sa Llotja’, a gem of modern gastronomy where local and seasonal ingredients are the starting point of a delicious assortment of dishes and cocktails. Sa Llotja Portocolom offers memorable views due to its location in the upper floor of the main port building, where you can dine inside or on the terrace. They offer a set three-course lunch menu with excellent choices including fish, seafood and meat. Sa Llotja Cala d’Or is located at Cala d’Or’s marina and boasts a charming interior inspired by the 1950’s and the colours of the Med.
The large front terrace offers lovely views of the marina. In addition to a weekly lunch menu, you can also order á la cartè and try some of their specialties, like lobster, caviar, some vegetarian plates and their homemade signature hamburger.
Na Caragola Restaurant, Sant Elm
Sant Elm is a charming coastal village in the southwestern corner of Mallorca. From Sant Elm you will be able to see the virgin island of Sa Dragonera right in front of you and these are exactly the views that you’ll enjoy when visiting the restaurant ‘Na Caragola’. Due to its fantastic location inside the fishing village, they serve top-quality fresh fish and seafood. Their wonderful wine list is the cherry on top of this great dining experience. Visiting at sunset is definitely an unforgettable experience!
Bon Bar, Cala Figuera
Cala Figuera is a traditional fishing village located in Mallorca’s southeast. All over the village you’ll see white-painted houses reaching over the water’s edge, adding an authentic vibe to it. ‘Bon Bar’, which means ‘good bar’ is one of those places you will want to go back to as soon as you walk out the door. This family-run restaurant is located at the port and from its terrace you can have a panoramic view of Cala Figuera. Fresh fish, Mediterranean dishes and homemade desserts are to be found on the menu!
S’Amarador, Sa Ràpita
In Mallorca’s South there are some of the most beautiful beaches of the island. One of these beaches is called ‘Sa Ràpita’. A white-sanded beach with tranquil, turquoise water often known as an alternative to the popular beach of ‘Es Trenc’. Sa Ràpita is also famous for being the beach where many wind- and kite surfers gather when there’s wind. A meeting point for locals, the restaurant ‘S’Amarador’ has been serving traditional Spanish and Majorcan cuisine with spectacular sea views for decades. At ‘S’Amarador’ you will be able to try some of the best paellas and fideuàs on the island!

In Mallorca’s Northeast there’s a small, unpretentious, coastal village called ‘Colònia de Sant Pere’. Its lovely promenade is filled with little restaurants that have been there forever. One of those restaurants is called ‘Es Vivers’. If you’re looking to dive into an authentic, Mediterranean dining experience, this is the place to do it. Market-fresh, seasonal and local produce are a firm ‘must’ on their menu, which has been carefully designed by Italian-born chef Mario de Luca.

This little, picturesque port is located in the west coast of Mallorca and is known for holding its traditional charm.
