A rush of bookings for Mother's Day. | Archive

César Amable of the PIMEM Restaurants Association says that this Mother's Day "is going to be busy", both he and his counterpart at the CAEB association, Alfonso Robledo, pointing to a rush of reservations.

Mother's Day will be welcomed by Mallorca's restaurants, their representatives indicating that business has "slowed down a bit" since Easter week, which was "very strong". Robledo explains that there was a downturn after Easter, which wasn't the case last year.

As the season proper gets under way, the restaurants continue to be dogged by staffing problems. Robledo says that there is a shortage of kitchen staff in particular. Amable points to a lack of seasonal workers from the mainland "becoming more noticeable".
