Tasty Calamary dish at Sa Sinia

Our tasty Calamares dish at Sa Sinia

On one of our recent trips to Portocolom we were lucky enough to try a really tasty calamares (squid) dish at Sa Sinia Restaurant.

Sa Sinia Restaurant in Portocolom is one of the most established and well known in the area, given that Juan Ramón’s family started running it for the first time in 1969.

Now the restaurant specialises in fish, seafood and Mediterranean cuisine, including fish and lobster stews and catch of the day.

The menus at Sa Sinia are designed by Miguel Barcelo, a famous local artist.

New wine bar in town! La Baranda

We have recently been to see our friend Stefano at La Baranda Restaurant in Sant Catalina (Calle Sant Magi).

The restaurant now has its very own, brand new wine bar, in the atmospheric basement which has been completely rennovated. The bar serves a large selection of wines and cocktails as well as a variety of miniature cuisine, mainly La Baranda dishes served in mini portions.

The wine bar at La Baranda allows for customers to come in for a drink and snack, stay for a full meal or just come in for a night cap!

This restaurant which was founded in 1994 by Bruno Farnochhia and his son Stefano, continues to delight customers on Sant Magi street in Santa Catalina with its Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.
