L’Arruzz Restaurant (previously known as Tapelia) in Palma de Mallorca is now offering a brand new TAPITAS menu in the evenings.

You get to create your very own Tapas menu by choosing from a variety of tapas dishes and desserts; 4 tapas and 1 dessert for just €16.50.

A great option for those balmy summer evenings when you would rather have something light to eat, plus, L’Arruzz has a great terrace right in front of the sea, so benefits from a beautiful sea breeze – all within walking distance from the centre of Palma.

During the whole of July and August, Es Mercat Restaurant in Santa Catalina, Palma, is running a very special offer…

You can enjoy Ivan’s lovely set menu (usually only available at lunch) for only 12.40 euros per person at dinner time!

We highly recommend you try this restaurant and this great value offer presents itself as the perfect opportunity to do so!

New hot tip: Krishna

We love Indian food at SkyBlue Mallorca so it is always a pleasure to discover a new restaurant which serves authentic and high quality Indian cusine on Mallorca.

Krishna has recently opened in Santa Ponsa, and is fast becoming very popular. We enjoyed a great meal there, had a chat with Mitul, the owner and even took a video interview of him.

Mitul explains: ‘At Krishna we have carefully selected key dishes from the various regions of India and our priority is to prepare them using the best available products, so for example, we use only high quality meats.’

Krishna is the name of a Hindu god (typically depicted as being blue) , the god of love and good vibrations.

Mojitos at Misa
