It had been reported that the restaurant had passed a technical inspection. However, Palma's mayor, Jaime Martínez, said on Thursday that it had failed to comply with all the necessary measures for its operation.

The restaurant had been closed following the collapse of the roof terrace at the Medusa Beach Club which resulted in the deaths of four people. It was reopened by Christian Arnsteiner, who has been charged with four counts of manslaughter and six of causing serious injury through negligence.
