We found this gorgeous bistro by accident, what a brilliant find for a delightful lunch. The daily fixed menu is superb value and absolutely delicious, we had fill pastry cheese and spinach parcels with perfect rice and unusual salad. It was lovely, with a hint of spice in the cheese. The house wine was great too. I then had the... More

My husband and I also stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant after wandering the Call, trying to retrace the history of the long gone Jewish community of Palma. Kudos to John and Evelyn for researching and including Sefardic dishes to feature on their lunch menu - we ordered everything on the menu del dia and shared. Every dish was... More

Las Olas was quiet and comfortable, away from the squares and touristy areas. Excellent daily menu (curried sole with lentils was fabulous) and vino del casa (both red and white). Proprietor was extremely helpful, and spoke perfect English. Do go here when in Palma.

We were welcomed by the owner, whose dry sense of humour was to our taste. No need to ask for a wine recommendation, they're all good and specially chosen. The food was superb - Mallorquín cheese with honey, almonds and fresh fruit, a delicious beetroot gazpacho, roast duck with passion fruit sauce, lamb meatballs with figs, all lovingly prepared with...

This is our 3rd year of eating at this restaurant on our annual Palma stay. The restaurant has charm, very relaxed atmosphere, good service and exceptional food and that's why we return. John the owner recognised us (I hope for the right reasons) and was very welcoming. The food is presented absolutely beautifully, fresh ingredients and colourful. Really nice evening.... More

The restaurant is serving a very fresh food (veg and non veg). The chef seems to come from Vietnam. They serve typic Spanish dish (bacalao), fresh salad and vietmanian dishes. The waiter are very kind.

Fantastic tapas with Spanish/Asian fusion options, which works surprisingly well. Just simply delicious food (& wine), relaxed atmosphere, not pretentious, not touristy - although the friendly owner(?) is Irish so not a problem if Spanish isn't your strong point. Highly recommended.

We loved this place that we happened upon whilst exploring the streets of Old Palma. The food was without doubt the best we ate on our holiday in Mallorca. The mixed tapas followed by sardines and the gazpacho all had perfectly balanced flavours and were beautifully presented. We were pleased that we passed the 'entrance exam' to go in, as... More

The food is excellent, but the tapas are amazing. Everything good that you have read about this restaurant is true, including the interesting owner/waiter and his culinary wife, do not miss!
