As famous for its spectacular views as for its paellas, Sa Foradada is located on Mallorca’s north coast opposite the Sa Foradada promontory. Part of its appeal lies in its seclusion; it is inaccessible to vehicles and can be reached only by boat or by a long hike up the hill. Meals are cooked over a wood fire in an open-air kitchen and served up in the similarly open-air terrace overlooking the bay. The menu features mixed (traditional) seafood and vegetable paellas in addition to a selection of meats, fish and salads.

Rumored to serve one of the best seafood paellas in Palma de Mallorca, Restaurante Ca’n Manolo is a low-key establishment specializing in Mediterranean and Mallorcan cuisine. It is a firm favorite, with diners coming here as much for the friendly, attentive service and value for money as for the superb seafood. Of particular note is the so-called ‘blind’ paella, where the seafood is served without shells. The tables fill up quickly in the evenings, so advance booking is advised.
