Great food and service was excellent. I'd recommend the lamb dish, but the Tapas was also very good. House red wine was superb.

We're half-way through one of those back-to-back tapas table deliveries of just-right-portion super-yummy stuff when a couple takes the table next to us. One look at the menu, a bit of whispering, a furtive look to check the waitress has gone, and then they're so...More

so delicious we went twice - or maybe it was even three times. The spanish omelette was the most perfect - I can still feel its saltiness in my mouth!

We were drawn in by the charming vine-covered terrace and the promise of several salads and vegetable dishes on the menu. We were sadly disappointed. This restaurant charges similar prices to others in Deia, but for food that seems more like industrial products re-heated from...More

Surprised by some of the negative comments here. We were recommended by hotel puig and had an absolutely fantastic meal there, with good service. It's not Michelin cuisine, nor silver service, but does offer good wholesome tapas and a choice to suit all, with an...More

Xelini Restaurant
“Tapas” Restaurant located in Deia (Mountain town located in Mallorca).
The best local and Mediterranean cuisine.
Xelini Restaurant is situated in a property which is 130 years old. The tasteful decor together with the stone walls and wooden beams and the addition of beautiful garden provide the perfect setting for an innovative menu of Mallorquin Cuisine.
The psot-modern decor does not detract but rather lends to the cosy family atmosphere as opposed to some of the more popular tourist eateries on the island. Preserving the timeless ambience of Mediterranean cafe society where people sit and pass the time of day.
Although Deia is a relatively small village nestled within Mallorca’s Sierra de Tramuntana it has enjoyed a world-wide reputation due to some of it’s more illustrious vistors and residents from the literati and gliterati of the nineteenth and twentieth century.
