Es Rebost

Sustainable eating is all the rage in Mallorca, led by the likes of Es Rebost with its “fast, slow food” concept of local, organic, seasonal produce. With three locations in Palma, Es Rebost is the brainchild of German-born Helmut Clemens. All the dishes ooze quality, like the “Burger Mallorquina” with Mallorcan sobrassada sausage, which is quite simply one of the juiciest, tastiest burgers you’ll ever try.•

Horno Santo Cristo

When it comes to quintessentially Mallorcan fare, don’t miss ensaimada, the national pastry. Made from sourdough and pork lard, ensaimada is rolled into a spiral and baked in the oven. The result is a crispy, golden, creamy pastry with a soft interior, which is suitable for breakfast, lunch or an afternoon snack. Try it at Horno Santo Cristo.

El Camino

El Camino is the latest project by half-British, half-Mallorcan Eddie Hart – behind London’s popular Barrafina restaurants – and singer-songwriter Samuel Gough. This beautifully designed tapas bar blends traditional recipes with creative dishes, such as the mouthwatering goat’s cheese-filled fried zucchini flower and seasonal artichokes with quail’s eggs and tangy romesco sauce. El ­Camino doesn’t take reservations so arrive early.

Patron Lunares

Situated in Palma’s achingly trendy Santa Catalina neighborhood, Patron Lunares is a modern restaurant with a rich historic past. Back in the day, Santa Catalina used to be a poor fishing village – a proud legacy that is ever-present in the maritime­-themed space. Fresh shellfish and grilled meats are among the highlights on the menu.

Restaurante Joan Frau

Mercat Santa Catalina is Palma’s oldest market. These days, it’s a place where local grannies rub shoulders with visiting hipsters among an uncountable number of food stalls, bars and restaurants. The most popular market pit stop is Juan Frau, an old-school bar. Don’t miss the tumbet, a Mallorcan dish similar to a French ratatouille, served with steak.
