A guide to the best restaurants in Palma Nova

Palma Nova restaurants aim to please the British holidaymakers, so you’ll find home favourites on most international menus across the resort. There are a large number of restaurants located along the Paseo del Mar with sea views, some of which even touch the sand. They range from French to Mexican and Mediterranean to Thai. You won’t go hungry at lunch time either as the Spanish restaurants will serve you up some tapas or a hearty omelette, or you can get light bites at the takeaway joints dotted about. Here is our guide to the top restaurants in Palma Nova.

Majorcan food on the beach at Ciro's

Directly on the sand, the views of the sea and boats are brilliant through the floor to ceiling windows at Ciro’s. They have a wide selection of Majorcan dishes, seafood and stews as well as a children’s menu and prices are reasonable at roughly €40 per person with drinks.

French delights at Le P'tit Bistrot

Right in front of the beach, for 20 years Le P’tit Bistrot has been serving up traditional French cuisine in Palma Nova. Start with snails if you dare, then you can have steak or duck a l’orange with french fries or dauphinoise potatoes. The crepe suzette for dessert is heavenly.

Grill house with garden views at Son Matias Garden

This barbeque restaurant specialises in meat from the grill, including T-bones as big as the plate or a mixed grill if you’re particularly hungry. They also have a range of soups, salads, fish and pasta. All the family are catered for and the view of the bay from the garden is excellent.

All your favourites from around the world at Mocubar

The range of international flavours here caters for the British palette, including chilli con carne, Thai green curry and the good old English breakfast. At lunch time you can grab and go with a takeaway baguette. The welcoming owners Sally and Everest remember visitors from previous years.

Gourmet Spanish at great prices at Port O'Call

This seafront venue dishes up value for money and big portions of Spanish and Mediterranean food. You can try the tapas followed by lamb shanks, sea bass or fillet steak, all cooked to perfection. This is a fine dining experience but at average prices.

Romantic Thai lounge at My Thai

A romantic place for dinner, My Thai still manages to retain a relaxed atmosphere at its beachside setting. Take your pick of the classic Thai dishes or try one of the set menus to get a selection. They have a value lunch menu and an evening set menu where 3 courses and a beer for two is €40.

Fun Mexican vibes at Cucaracha Tex Mex Grill

All the tastiest Tex Mex foods are presented here – big portions of ribs, spicy rice, burgers, burritos, tacos and nachos drizzled in salsa and cheese. The atmosphere is fun with sombrero-donned waiters serenading customers on the ukulele. They also have a takeaway service if you’d rather eat back at the hotel.

Your new favourite Indian at Curry Lounge

In the heart of town, this Indian restaurant serves all your favourite curries as well as some unique house specials. The chargrilled tikka skewers are impressively large so you won’t go home hungry if they take your fancy. The waiters are very attentive, which is just one reason why Curry Lounge has so many repeat customers.

Tapas and vino at My Tapas

This small but modern tapas restaurant serves typical Andalusian treats such as Calamari, potato croquettes and Iberian Ham, cut straight from the joint. You can sit on the terrace by the beach promenade and sip on one of their delicious wines while enjoying chef Carlos’ offerings.

Italian like mama makes at Il Vicolo

For fresh and flavoursome, homemade pasta, risotto or saltimbocca, Il Vicolo hits the mark. The authentic Italian food is served up by cheery waiters. If you want pizza, this isn’t the place for you, but for anything else Italian, this is the place to be.
