Yes, many restaurants have given up and closed their shutters, but for those courageous souls battling the odds to remain open, the Majorca Daily Bulletin are intent on ensuring you are aware of what is still on offer.

Moreover, as restaurateurs recognise that we the clients have suffered financial loss as well as themselves, there have never been such quality menus now on offer at rock bottom prices.
