Points of Interest & Landmarks
We love tapas and experienced a wonderful meal here - everything was delicious - polite and friendly service. Reasonably priced. Good spot for people watching. We never returned only because there were too many restaurants to choose from !
This looked very inviting as we walked by so decided to try it one evening. We were not disappointed - friendly service, the owner explained the specials and about the fish ( which I ordered ) love to try new dishes, again delicious and beautifully cooked and well presented. This restaurant is an experience and recommended if you are a foodie ! We had a wonderful evening but must say that it is an expensive restaurant ( cost us 100 euros ) Top class place which makes you feel you've enjoyed a special evening !
Superb hotel, not like the norm - backed by the mountains and set in beautiful grounds, very spacious, huge old olive trees, different levels, lots of little nooks and crannies to sit in, shady spots - wonderful, peaceful and quiet, yet so near to the port ( 100m. ) It's full of character, has retained many of its original features - courtyards, old olive press, lots little low ceiling lounges, several buildings scattered around which are also used as bedrooms, which we happened to stay in - unusual artifacts, and I could go on !! Friendly staff, wonderful breakfast - you even squeeze your own orange juice at breakfast which are from their own trees ( lemon trees as well ) . Although it is not listed as an adults only hotel, you can almost say it is - perfect for couples, young and old. Excellent food - this place is amazing - I can't wait to go back ( and that's something I rarely do ! ) A definite recommend - you won't be disappointed.
This wooden tram which goes along the promenade from Port Soller to the town of Soller is a must !! Regular trams throughout the day - it's a lovely ride and when you go through the small main square when you arrive at Soller you can almost touch some of the buildings ! You can see where the locals houses are and their gardens full of orange trees - it's an interesting ride. This tram stops where the main wooden train goes to Palma, so very convenient if you wish to do this trip ( recommended ).
Superb food in yet another restaurant in this popular port. Good menu choice, excellent food and friendly and attentive service. Well priced for an enjoyable evening.
Easy to get to via bus from Port Andratx, where we were staying. Lovely little place - beach and a restaurant situated in the sea where you walk over a bridge to get there ( no paddling ) !! A couple of hotels line the bay, several bars and restaurants, small bay, not overcrowded. Street from the bay with many local shops and bars leads up the hill to where the fishing boats come in - watch the fishermen tending their nets. You can also catch a boat here which takes you back to Port Andratx - a very pleasant, but short sail - recommended. Nice spot for a day out.
This is our favourite bar in Palma - we have been here every time we visit Palma for the day. They serve good sangria and the tapas are also highly recommended. It's on a busy main road, but really good for people watching and everything that's going on. Near bus stops, all the shops, the theatre so very central.
