The Balearic Island of Mallorca, renowned for its stunning coastline and clear light that inspired artists such as Joan Miró, is unsurprisingly one of Europe’s top holiday destinations. The enticing scenery and climate is complemented by an equally impressive culinary, where seafood features very prominently thanks to its island status. Try out these venues to get your best maritime fix of luscious lobster and mouth-watering mussels.
A family-run business since it was founded as a fishermen’s guesthouse and eatery in 1871, Restaurant Miramar is a local landmark and one of Mallorca’s top venues for fish and seafood, with views over Alcúdia Bay to match. Meals can be taken in the elegant indoor dining room or enjoyed on the terrace facing a palm-fringed beach and harbor lit up by night. Highlights include the Mallorcan lobster stew, Arcade oysters and grilled Mallorcan red prawns.

Located directly above Palma’s fish market, Ca n’Eduardo offers up an exceptional range of produce straight from the sea. Founded in 1943, the restaurant has recently been renovated and features two large dining rooms, a private dining room and a terrace with panoramic views of the harbour and Palma’s cathedral. Stylish crowds congregate here in the evening and the people-watching is guaranteed to be as satisfying as the house specialities such as spiny lobster and Mallorcan style sea hake.
