4.5

A Mediter-asian fusion bistro squirreled away near Palma’s cathedral.

This is an unassuming little bistro that, tricky as it is to find, has garnered a loyal following. Lunch is all Mediterranean classics, evening South Asian dishes hailing mainly from Cambodia and Vietnam.

Food and drink

Given the concept, it could be anything from a homemade Majorcan pie (a bit like a round Cornish pasty) or zingy strawberry gazpacho, to hand-rolled Vietnamese salad rolls, and spiced Cambodian fish.

Ambience

Homely with lots of pictures on the walls, clocks, and general paraphernalia from Asia. The couple that run it - John and Evelyne – have worked on boats and in hotel restaurants respectively, and wanted to set up the kind of place they missed while on the road. The result is one that invites you to linger.

Service

The staff tread the fine line between personal and professional, and do it well.

Location

Another good reason for going: to visit the gorgeous and usually missed Basilica de Sant Francesc, which is around the corner. If you linger long enough over lunch, you’ll catch it for evening opening.

Price advice

Good value, especially the three course lunch for €13.55 (bear in mind IVA (VAT) is added on top). Evening meals are a little more expensive with main courses upwards of €11.
