Food and drink
Like I said, choose wisely. In restaurant speak, that generally means if you keep it simple and focus on the ingredients you’ll do OK. Go for slivers of jamón and local sobrassada sausage drizzled with honey on toasted local bread, rocket salad with pears and Parmesan, linguine with mussels, or pork tenderloin with garlic and mushroom sauce. Alternatively, head out late and stick to tapas and drinks in the clubby atmosphere of the chill out lounge.
I welcome the fact there’s somewhere on the Port de Sóller to go for a glass of wine or a cocktail, listen to some groovy tunes and generally hang out at night. Music is more chill-out than get-up-and-dance, they occasionally have live bands through the summer, and you’ll find it generally a bit more grown-up than the club scene in Palma.
The staff are multi-lingual and overseen by the owners, which ensures the standard is generally pretty high. It can be a bit slow when busy; on the upside they do keep you informed of what’s happening while ensuring your glass is well lubricated.
Randemar is right on the seafront, smack bang in the middle of the Port de Sóller.
The bill can and will add up if you go to town on expensive dishes like lobster and the cocktails. Forewarned is forearmed. However, if you stick to more pedestrian dishes a couple of courses and a couple of glasses of wine shouldn't set you back more than about €25-€30.
