Down a side street of another side street in Palma’s cobblestoned old town hides this hip hideaway which features the cities coolest retro interior made up from weird murals, funky flea market finds and old-style island treasure.
There’s two entrances; one for the restaurant and one for their hot little Pintxos bar where if the sweet sounds of bossa nova won’t lure you in, the sight of their selection of pintxos will.
Pintxos are small skewered snacks and what’s so fabulous about them, is that they’re cheap (1,50€ each) and tiny which affords you to totally indulge. Chefs here come up with crazy, creative concoctions like the goats cheese, nuts, sugar and cinnamon one of which I inhaled two even before ordering my first verdejo.
They serve lovely local wine but more importantly boast a separate gin bar! Yeah baby! This bad ass bar serves particularly exotic gin tonic’s using everything from Gin Mare to G’vine adding anything from pumpkin to pepper into the mix.
No wonder then, that even on a weekday crowds of cool kids spill out into the candlelit courtyard holding fishbowl glasses of gin, chatting and shaking up this otherwise silent and sleepy seeming street.
