Sustainability rules at Finca Can BeneïtWe stayed in room 4 – with this view on one sideSunrise from the terrace of our room For the third year running, we spent our wedding anniversary (coinciding with Valentine’s Day) at Mallorca’s hideaway, rural 5-star hotel, Finca Can Beneït. This was our fourth visit in total to this beautiful property in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Serra de Tramuntana, and each time we’ve found enhancements to the guest experience. The Arrival The first enhancement we noticed this year was the installation of a gate at the entrance to the finca. Press the button ..read more

Lunch in the Campanet Countryside: Ses Coves
Eat, drink, sleep, Mallorca
by Jan Edwards
1w ago
Ses Coves seen from the car park Several times last summer I tried to book a table for dinner at Ses Coves in the Campanet countryside. I’d read and heard a lot about the place so it was no surprise that it was always full when I tried to make a reservation. The answer? Eat out of season – which we did recently, booking our lunch only the day before we wanted to go. Ses Coves – as the name suggests – is adjacent to the Caves of Campanet at the foot of the Puig Sant Miquel, overlooking a picturesque valley with extensive views. The location is fantastic but the main reason for the popularity of ..read more

Nº11 is Number One in Port d’Andratx
Eat, drink, sleep, Mallorca

I’ve occasionally been asked for a restaurant recommendation in Port d’Andratx, in the southwest of Mallorca. Until recently, I wasn’t aware of any stand-out places to eat there – despite plenty of eateries. This is partly because we live north of Manacor, so I always want to be sure that any restaurant at a distance will be worth the time and the fuel cost to get there. The front terrace with optional covering The view from the first-floor loungeDecor detail in the lounge Well, I now have a great recommendation for an eatery in charming Port d’Andratx: it’s called Nº11. We visited on a day wh ..read more

A Port de Pollença Favourite: Stay Restaurant
Eat, drink, sleep, Mallorca

3w ago
Looking for a restaurant in Mallorca that’s open all year – and is right by the Mediterranean? Stay Restaurant in Port de Pollença fits the bill. This restaurant has been a magnet for visitors and locals since 1972, although it looks different today thanks to a major renovation in 2006. Eighteen years on, it still looks contemporary. On the terraceIn the dining room I couldn’t tell you how many times we’ve eaten at Stay over the past twenty years. We’ve been with family, friends, and on our own. And we’ve never had a bad experience. We usually visit out of the peak season, when it’s easier to ..read more

Where to Eat in Felanitx – Estragon La Plaça
Eat, drink, sleep, Mallorca
by Jan Edwards
1M ago
When we first bought our rural Mallorca property in 2002, our finca’s previous owners helpfully left us a list of their favourite local eateries. Some of the restaurants on the list no longer exist but one we used to visit often is back in business – albeit with different owners, interior, and food concept. That restaurant is Estragon La Plaça in Felanitx. When we used to eat there, Anna and her husband, who was the chef, owned and ran it. They were there for more than 15 years until they sold the place. Current Owners Since November 2023 Since the beginning of November 2023, Felix Passow and ..read more

A Taste of Paris in Palma
Eat, drink, sleep, Mallorca
by Jan Edwards
1M ago
A few tables outside Les Artistes on the pavement Who needs a trip to Paris for a taste of French cuisine? If travelling to France isn’t on the cards for you but the prospect of an authentic French onion soup or a hearty boeuf bourguignon appeals, head to Les Artistes, a cosy French bistro in the heart of Palma, Mallorca’s capital. By the time you’ve perused the menu and taken the first sip of your French beer or Château Bertinerie, you’ll almost believe you were in the ‘city of light’. The décor helps to achieve this feeling. Think of a French bistro you’ve seen in a movie and you’ll find sim ..read more

Relax at Barefoot Hotel Mallorca in Portocolom
Eat, drink, sleep, Mallorca

2M ago
Portocolom in southeast Mallorca Portocolom is said to be the birthplace of the explorer Christopher Columbus, but I imagine if he were alive today, he’d be content to spend more time in this picturesque part of Mallorca. Like the holidaymakers who visit Portocolom for its beautiful setting, I’m always happy to be there, whether it’s for a walk around one of Mallorca’s largest, sheltered harbours, or a meal or drink while gazing at the boats bobbing at anchor in the water. There’s a serenity about Portocolom, even in the height of summer. It’s still a fishing village where you can see nets lai ..read more

My Top 3 Restaurants in Manacor
Eat, drink, sleep, Mallorca
by Jan Edwards
3M ago
People often ask me to recommend restaurants in Mallorca’s second-largest town, Manacor, so here are my top three places to eat out in the Llevant area’s capital. Can March First opened in 1925, Can March was originally a café serving locals. Today, brothers Miquel and Tolo Gelabert have made this the most popular restaurant in Manacor, even though its location is not central in the town. (Find parking on the side streets in the area, or travel by train to Manacor; it’s about a 10-15-minute walk to Can March). Chef Miquel describes his cuisine as ‘new Mallorcan’: traditional dishes with a mod ..read more

Enjoy Serene Living at Silentia Spa
Eat, drink, sleep, Mallorca
by Jan Edwards
4M ago
Have you ever booked a hotel on the basis that it had a spa … and then not used the facility during your stay? I know I have. It might have been a reluctance to go through the hassle of changing into swimming gear or sportswear, or finding that the spa didn’t live up to expectations (I remember a hotel spa that was too chilly for poolside relaxation after a swim). One spa that is sure to appeal is the new Silentia, which has opened this year at the 5-star El Coto Boutique Hotel (now with & Spa added to its name) in the coastal Colònia de Sant Jordi. We’ve stayed in this stylish, seasonal ..read more
