The restaurants recommended in this blog have all been visited by me and my wife and often with friends. We have visited them at least once. I only recommend restaurants that have a quality that, in my opinion, makes them worth a visit.
Some are world class restaurants, some are very simple, but the food is always worth the price and the chefs have prepared it with pride and love of good food.
The food is essential for being mentioned here. Minor problems when it comes to service and other things are mentioned but does not disqualify them from being recommended.
We have also eaten in some restaurants in the area that do not leave any memories worth writing about.
Finally we have been to very few bad restaurants and have been badly serviced in a few.
These three categories are marked differently in List of Restaurants.
marks our special restaurants. On the map they are found by the red marks and in the search term list under coup de ceur

FORN DE SANT JOAN


 FORN DE SANT JOAN - c/ Sant Joan, 4 | 07012 Palma de Mallorca

As Mallorca is still a heaven for tourists, preferably Germans, most of the restaurants are tourist traps with menus on all living languages. We were however lucky to find a really good restaurant - FORN de Sant Joan. This is a very nice modern restaurant with very pleasant service. The food is made with high ambitions that they live up to. It is not very expansive either.

I specially remember the my lamb that had been cooked for seven hours. It was tender, juicy and tasty. It was served on smoked mashed potatoes – delicious and different! My desert was also something extra. It was fresh strawberries that they had made holes in and filled with crème brulé. The whole thing was covered with a crust of burned sugar. We could also get good wine by the glass, which is perfect when you are two people.

An interesting thing we noticed on Mallorca was that being a waiter still seems to be a respectable profession for men, like it was in Sweden in the old days. It is nice to be served by a person who knows what he is talking about instead of a young girl that does not know the difference between a sole and a turbot.
