This place is great for a nice romantic meal or a large group of friends. The food is great and has not disappointed me yet. It's also a great place to sit back relax with a gin in the sunshine after work, or to start a big night out. An all round great place!

A bonus of Es Baluard is that several areas and terraces are open freely without buying a ticket to the museum. The museum itself is a serious contemporary gallery with some challenging and fascinating exhibits including a group of video exhibits on for just a few more days. The permanent collection is also fascinating and the conjunction of pre-modern paintings... More

Walked around Museum, very interesting and the modern architecture integrates well with the old stone walls. We did not go into the museum itself but instead enjoyed a relaxing lunch in the restaurant, with its outdoor area and very pleasant setting. Having read some reviews we were pleasantly surprised by the contemporary but fresh menu on offer. My fish was... More

The architect turned this place into a gem. Within the ancient fort they were able to create a 3 floor modern museum with museum shop and added a coffee shop and restaurant with a terrace and splendid view of the bay and the cathedral.

This contemporary art gallery has been constructed within the old city walls of Palma. The exhibition spaces and outside features are beautiful, on lots of levels, and on the top, affording magnificent panoramic views. The art work there is not quite so impressive, but we loved the exhibition in the basement - not to be missed. Very much worth a... More

They sure did things right in building the Es Baluard. We enjoyed the current exhibit of video art downstairs and much of the permanent collection. And of course a walk on the ramparts above.

This small collection of modern art is worth the visit, with ever changing visiting pictures and well arranged collections it provides a nice hour of art appreciation. The coffee shop/ restaurant overlooking the sea is a definite treat afterwards with great B views and service.

This is primarily an Art (my Capital A) gallery / museum but it offers so much more. Stunning architecture, Panoramic views, a rooftop walk, a very hip restaurant cum bar and paintings new and old.

It's more just a gallery, with a small collection of modern art. Most of which is terrible. Gobsmacked at how dire a lot of it is, very much the emperor's new clothes However, only 6 Euros to get in, and it was raining....

Sorry you didn't like the museum's collection but the works of Miró, Barceló, Mir, Anglada-Camarasa, Modigliani, Tàpies, Sorolla, Dalí, Picasso, García-Alix, Juan Gris, Solana, Mapplethorpe, Motherwell, Vostell, etc, offers a vision not only of the art made in the Balearics but its connections with other contemporary artists and styles.
