With so much dramatic cliff-top coastline and its majestic mountain range – coupled with a particularly vibrant dining scene – it’s no surprise that Mallorca boasts some of the best places to accompany your meal with some seriously spectacular views. Read on for some of the top restaurants on the island to soak up those superb sea and sierra panoramas.

Aimeim Café

Aimeim is a popular restaurant-cultural centre located in the Liedtke Museum with enchanting sea views over Andratx bay. This is a stunning setting for a spot of Sunday brunch with its many vegan and organic options on offer and all accompanied by live music. Check out the art gallery onsite or enjoy a film projected on huge outdoor screens every evening from Wednesday to Sunday.

La Terazza

Whilst many enjoy the sophistication and modernity of La Terraza’s interior restaurant, it is the bistro on the charming outside terrace, set on the waters edge, that offers the best atmosphere on a balmy afternoon. The menu focuses on fresh local produce, especially seafood, and is prepared with real creativity and flair. Sunsets over the harbour and little village houses dotted along the shoreline are particularly picturesque here, so be sure to reserve a table before dusk.

Son Tomas

With glorious views of the sun setting over both the sea and the terraced hills in the horizon, this family-run restaurant in the town of Banyalbufar is easy to love. Thanks to its seafront location the fresh seafood is sensational. Complete the evening with a post-dinner walk through the vast and pretty oak forests that surround the town.

Las Terrazas del Bendinat

Las Terrazas del Bendinat

Situated in a rather exclusive part of Palma bay, the restaurant in this boutique hotel is simply gorgeous. Tables are scattered amongst the landscaped terraces outside under the cool shade of pine trees and canvas sails, with views across the water and rocky beach nearby. Sample refreshing Andalusian gazpacho or langoustine salad to start, followed up with suckling pig and caramelized apples, and strudel or creme brulee to finish.

Es Grau

Located quite literally on the edge of a cliff in the Serra de Tramuntana, the sweeping panoramic views from Es Grau’s windy terrace are particularly stunning. The restaurant can accommodate up to 200 people outside and is often packed, especially with cyclists who dare venture up the steep winding coastal path. Many favour this restaurant as a quick pit-stop and snack break as opposed to a full three course meal, though it is definitely worth the visit for the views alone.

CUIT Bar & Restaurant

Despite its prime position in the centre of Palma, the hip Nakar Hotel remains one of the city’s best kept secrets. Diners at the swish CUIT restaurant on the 8th floor, headed by renowned innovative Mallorcan chef Miquel Calent, can enjoy quite spectacular vistas of Palma Marina and the iconic La Seu Cathedral. Thoughtfully designed, the restaurant makes the most of the space with its folding ceiling and windows to give the impression of floating above the city’s rooftops whilst basking in the lovely sunshine.

Es Verger

The drive from Alaro to the charming Es Verger restaurant is one of the most serpentine and bumpy journeys you can undertake on the island. The landscape seen from the top of the mountain is well worth it however. Step inside to find an aged barn with open fireplaces and ancient waiters. Old ladies prepare dishes of beer and rosemary infused lamb and garlicky roasted potatoes, which celebrity chef Rick Stein declared the best he’d ever eaten. Don’t forget your cash (they don’t take plastic) and be prepared to eat elbow-to-elbow with the locals.

Sushi Bar at Hotel Sant Francesc Singular

Set atop the award-winning five-star boutique Hotel Sant Francesc Singular is an impressive al fresco terrace where both guests and residents nibble on sushi while taking in the surrounding city panorama. Though not grand mountain or sweeping sea views, visitors can peer over the scenic surrounding rooftops, neighbouring medieval church, and out to Palma’s majestic sandstone Cathedral. Accompany the views with a top-notch selection of Japanese delicacies from the Sushi bar, or a burger flame-grilled to perfection.
