Village eatery serving true Majorcan market cooking.

Es Porxo has been through many incarnations - first as a coach house, then grocery store, now restaurant serving fine local cuisine. Decorated with lithographs of Picasso’s preparations for his masterpiece ‘Guernika’, and elegant and nicely lit, it is mainly frequented by food-loving locals, which tells you what you need to know: it offers good, honest fare.

Food and drink

Head chef Mateo Bordoy is a larger than life kind of a character, and it shows through in his passionate approach to food. Think plates with big personalities like the rib-sticking arroz de porsella (rice thickly studded with sticky chunks of suckling piglet), hearty monkfish steaks stewed with onions, and hulking great chunks of local pork (porc negre) piled on top of roasted peppers.

Ambience

Always packed, lively and cheerful. One of those places that makes you feel that little bit more connected to the community just by being there.

Service

Warm, friendly and bursting with character.

Location

On the road to Esporlas, about 15 minutes drive from the centre of Palma and easily reached by taxi.

Price advice

No menú del día, but it doesn’t have to get super-expensive unless you want it to. Expect to spend about 40 euros a head for three courses and a bottle of wine.
