New: Es Balco Restaurant

The latest restaurant we have added to the SkyBlue Mallorca Food & Wine Guide is Es Balco Restaurant in Palma de Mallorca.

Es Balco is run by Toni Bartel and Begoña Arguimbau, who worked together previously at the well known Malvasia Restaurant which was owned and run by Joan Olives; a renowned and respected personality within the food & wine industry here in Mallorca.

Joan Olives has now unfortunately passed away and his restaurant Malvasia duly closed. But he haa a profound influence on many people including Toni and Begoña, and they owe a lot of their recipes and cooking style to Joan.

Es Balco (which means balcony in Catalán) serves the traditional Balearic cuisine which Joan used to create so artfully at Malvasia.

Wagyu Beef at Bruselas Restaurant

If  you are passionate about eating beef then you may already have heard of Wagyu beef. If not, then you only have to visit Bruselas Restaurant in the centre of Palma to be able to try some of the healthiest and best quality beef in the world.

Wagyu is a special breed of cattle that lives in the secluded countryside of Japan and is now being bred at selected farms where the cattle lives in clean natural surroundings, sleeps on biodegradable bedding and listens to music while it grazes open pastures.

The Wagyu has a naturally marbled meat and is high in healthy fatty acids, which means that not only does it taste fantastic, but it is also very healthy.

You can savour wagyu beef at Bruselas Restaurant in Palma, one of the most popular restaurants in the city when it comes to meat dishes.

Calle Fabrica, Santa Catalina

Here’s a shot we took recently of Calle Fabrica, Santa Catalina. The street is now fully pedestrianised, and of course has been duly decorated for the Festive Season with Christmas lights. We think the idea to make Calle Fabrica traffic-free is a great one and that the whole area will notice a boost thanks to the decision.

People love pedestrian only streets. They usually attract cafeterias and restaurants and a great ambience. People can stroll down the street and have time to look in shop windows and choose a great restaurant to eat at. Santa Catalina with its popular market and many restaurants is already a bustling area and projects like these give it a modern touch which will no doubt keep the area alive and kicking.

For a list of Restaurants in Santa Catalina see SkyBlue Mallorca Food & Wine Guide.

Menu of the day at Unbar d’Calvache Restaurant
