I like the bar, the view of the Port, the friendly staff & the user friendly culinary offerings. Perfect with kids, great any time. Honestly.

A lovely lunch time spot, set back from the very idilic coast offering a cafe & a shaded restaurant terrace upstairs. I can't remember what I ate, but it was surely a simple catch of the day...

terrific fish with a traditional Spanish approach to goodness. Simple but serious. Ideal for a quiet terrace lunch on a perfect day or a cosy hide away from the storm...

The perfect place to go straight from the airport. Great grilled vegetables, a fun throwback dining room & I almost forgot, terrific fish too. Simple goodness, lively & fun.

This is such a lovely place. A bit up market & not easy to get to, but go for lunch on a nice day. Paella for 2 & a bottle of perfectly chilled white wine. You will understand why I like it !

This is the new 2018 hot Mallorquine place in Palma. One long bar, fun wines, food busily prepared across the counter. Modern, delicious & fun. El Camino is the proverbial cats whiskers & unfortunately has made it into flight mags so pick your moment or face the hateful prospect of a queue. Eddie Hart, local boy made good in London with Barafina etc is raising the level very significantly. Go solo or as a couple, lunch being an easier option. There are a few stand up places at the back. No bookings

The Spanish royal family like C'aN'Antuna, so do the residents of Fornalutx. Me too ! No better place in the village for a robust paella & a draft beer on the terrace overlooking the valley & the Tramuntanas

Pere, Marta & Pedro are the people who take care of B.CasaMi - very well too - who organise arrivals, offer sound advice & are essential to know. The local telephone number in the contacts is theirs.

Shopping
Most people need no help shopping so lets not get carried away !
A charming welcome & full of well chosen, nice, quality clothes, accessories & souvenirs. A must & so unlike your average 'tourist shop'. Being directly opposite the only free parking in town only adds to the odds of being drawn in.

If, like me, you enjoy good wine & welcome the opportunity to do a little research, try some different things...there is no better place to go. Well trained, knowledgeable staff can help unravel the towering walls of choices.

The place to go for intermediate priced wines with quality & character. The large range proposed is exclusively Mallorquine & Spanish - rightly so - but they also have spirits & an extensive range of their own liquors.

In a less than chic part of Palma above the Port Maritime, the 6€50 entrance fee is a bargain to this popular museum. Recommended. Parking can be a bit of an issue but there are less visitors during lunch. How surprising !

In the Soller Train Station is a small free museum with art works & ceramics of Joan Miro and Pablo Picasso. A short cultural stop before taking the tram to the port or grabing a ice cold something on the Plaça.

This is Soller 'pur jus', an answer to the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. Save for a cloudy day.

Not at all challenging if you like walking in natural surroundings, enjoy migrating birds. Take binoculars. Visit when you are over lunching in the Port of Polencia as it is an excursion.
