For this Michelin restaurant, it is evident that the most important thing is the guest, and they have one of the best quality/price ratio menus in Spain – or even the world – for this restaurant level. The cuisine is inventive and artistic and has influences from many countries. The outdoor terrace on Paseo Mallorca is a lovely place to spend long lunches, and we love the welcoming service here. The wine list has a good mix of local, Spanish and international wines.

Young Swede Lukas Lundgren has created a small, casual and relaxed natural wine bar - that recently had to move to a new address. La Sang has become a hub for winemakers and wine lovers on the island. The Lundgren family imports natural wines and La Sang also serves as a bottle shop if you’re in need of top natural wines. You will find a good selection of international and Spanish natural wines along the walls. Lukas and the team will treat you as a friend, and you can also taste some typical Mallorcan charcuterie. (The above photos are from the original space, we're working on new ones!)

Clandestí means secret, and you have to live this experience – which is very different from all other places in Palma. Chef Pau Navarro has worked at top restaurants around Spain and creates traditional dishes of humble neighbourhood cuisine in a modern special way, along with loud music! There is a huge selection of Champagne (Pau is very focused on Champagne), Sherry and natural wines, mostly from smaller producers. You have to go to the cellar to select them, or just go with the nice wine pairing. At Clandestí, you have to reserve a table; there are no walk-ins.

Yes, it is a wine shop, but what great wines! A tremendous selection of wines to introduce real wines to the local market, sincere and living wines, and even wine in bulk. Charlie, this "guiri" who is already half Mallorquin, is a crazy wine man. He makes a couple of references here in Mallorca and he has created this shop where you surely will have a great time, and where you also can have a snack.

Mercat Negre is the craziest place in Palma. Pau Navarro, a genius and madman at the same time, not only leaves you impressed at Clandesti – now you can also see him at the Mercado del Olivar. Yes, he has set up a market food stall in small portions (tapas) with a crazy selection of both still and sparkling wines. If you like a great wine experience, you shouldn't miss it!
