In general Spain pretty much wins hands-down when it comes to choosing a holiday for the British with many of the top Spanish resorts being popular every year. Mallorca is the clear favourite for 2015.
The strength of the pound and the guarantee of warm, sunny weather are the two main reasons for Spain being the first choice. Mallorca has a lot to offer for all age groups and the range of beautiful restaurants and stunning scenery has helped to elevate Mallorca above the rest.

A few months ago, Jordi d‘Calvache decided to open up at a larger location in Can Valero in Palma. At 18 DCalvache, you’ll find surprising 3 course menus at surprisingly affordable prices. The danger with going there once, is that you’ll want to go back every day!
This is what Jordi says about 18 DCalvache: ‘I wanted to create a space that’s different, positive, cheerful and fun where people can enjoy healthy, good food and where I can share the culinary experience I have gained in the last 18 years. The name 18 DCalvache lends itself to the 18 luxury hotels and restaurants where I have worked in the last 18 years, as well as 18 being the number of the street where we are located. We certainly offer more than 18 different tapas, and certainly more than 18 different flavours and dishes!’
Well, Jordi, you’re definitely on our top tip list.
Thanks to its privileged location and mild climate the island of Mallorca provides us with many of the diverse products so typical of a Mediterranean diet. The Mallorcan diet combines fish and sea food, with the wealth of vegetables and fruit produce on the island. Add to that a culturally rich gastronomic calendar and you have a varied and emblematic diet, of which the Mallorcan’s are rightfully proud.
Mallorca has now become a significant gastronomic destination, and its chefs and restaurants have been gaining prestige and fame worldwide. One of the main reasons why this has taken place has been thanks to the variety and quality of raw produce available. Not only the seafood and vegetables but also produce such as fruit, olives, almonds, olive oil, cheese, meats and to complement it all some outstanding wines.
Probably the most well known of Mallorcan food and products are the Ensaimada, the round pastry covered in icing sugar, Sobrassada, the red sausage made from the black pigs and the liqueur Hierbas, made from aniseed. But Mallorca offers many more products and dishes and more and more of the island’s chefs are reviving old recipes and reproducing and developing Mallorcan classics.
Tradition, time of year and religious festivals, have created a Gastronomic calendar in Mallorca which can be traced through foods typically eaten at any given time of year. The crespells, empanadas and rubiols which are typically prepared at Easter are a prime example.
A traditional Mallorcan restaurant is typically known as a Celler, because they are often located in old cellars where wine used to be made. Some examples of Cellers are; Celler Ca’n Amer and Celler Ca’n Ripoll in Inca or Celler La Parra in Puerto Pollensa. For a comprehensive list of restaurants follow this link: Mallorca Restaurants

Banyalbufar, the picturesque village which has recently featured in a major TV commercial is planning a new food and wine festival to be held in the village on the 21st of July.
The festival will be called ‘Eres Negre’ and is primarily a tribute to the ‘ramallet’ tomatoes which grow on the terraced farms in the area. Ramallet tomatoes are the variety of tomato traditionally used to rub on bread for a typical Mallorcan Pa amb Oli.
The area is also home to Malvasia grapes, a variety which had all but disappeared on Mallorca, but which has been recovered thanks to the dedication of some local wine producers. These local wines will also be on show at the festival.
Eight bars in the village will be offering a portion of tapas and a glass of Malvasia wine for the price of 2 euros. There will be live music for extra ambience and the organisers hope locals and tourists alike will flock to the village to enjoy its local gastronomy and beautiful sunsets.
One of Banyalbufar’s wineries, Son Vives, is featured on Skyblue Mallorca. The award winning wines by Son Vives, feature the famous Malvasia grape and are a delight to drink.
The winery was first built in 1868 and was bought by Melchor Oliver in 1912. It was then inherited by his son Francisco and is currently run by Miquel Oliver and his daughter, the enologist, Pilar.
Pilar is constantly working on new ideas for creating new wines and then each wine is launched under its own brand name and with its own particular marketing campaign. The winery has been awarded a constant stream of national and international prizes and has been selling wine to the public since 1912.
You can visit this centenary winery on Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 14:00 and 15:30 to 18:30. The visit includes a wine tasting which can be conducted in various languages. Make sure you book in advance if there is a large group of you.
Miquel Oliver winery uses a wide range of grape varieties and their star wines include red wines Aia and Son Caló and rosé wine Alegria Rosat Miquel Oliver.
