Gone fishin’ for a €35 delish meal in Palma

Some restaurants actually encourage their customers to ask for half dishes by printing the prices on the menu.

The three cold starters.

Food and drink

Authentic Lebanese cooking in Santa Catalina

Eating à la carte can be quite expensive at Rotana so I suggest you do as I did and have one of their four tasting menus which have names and different prices.

The chips were perfect and worth a 10.

Food and drink

This time chips were worth a 10

Last week I went back to Palma Blanc to try their €20 menú del día, served from Monday to Friday with the dishes changing every day.

The elegant pastel de merluza.

Food and drink

Old wineshop is a great survivor

Tapas bars don’t come much smaller or noisier than Bodega Morey but there are compensations — such as the quick turnover of tables and Malika’s excellent cooking.

Food and drink

Hotdog ensaimada bun was a huge hit

I enjoyed eating in the interior patio with its lush greenery and got a great kick out of seeing a sparrow and a blackbird land for a quick hop around.

The light curry chicken and veggies with rice.

Food and drink

Thai food is a great bargain in Mallorca

Palma Thai Kitchen has a fixed price menu at €14.50 that includes a spring rolls starter, a curry or noodles mains plus a drink that can be a caña or a cola.

The stuffed mussels were most refreshing

Food and drink

Eat Peruvian when the heatwave is on in Palma

The traditional dishes have names that don’t mean anything to most of us, but each one comes with a little description of the ingredients.

The freebie gamba croquettes were worth a 10

Food and drink

Toque: even the freebie was a 10

“It has been at least five years since my last visit to Toque and I noticed some marvellous changes.”

The paella was delish and worth a 10

Food and drink

No menú paella was ever as good as this

The rice was tongue-burning hot, it was beautifully al dente and it was scrummily juicy and bursting with taste.

The picaña steak was juicy and tender.

The Restaurant Review

What happens when the bosses are away?

This week's Restaurant Review: I thought it wouldn’t be fair to judge Sa Goleta when its captain wasn’t on the bridge and keeping the ship on course.

The chargrilled sea bass was worth a 10.

Restaurant Review

Top chargrillers can also do fish

The fact is that I seldom find a restaurant cook who does chargrilled fish of any kind — it’s just too risky and few even give it a thought.
