During the past few years, a well-known centre of restaurants has developed in the ancient Santa Catalina area, built around the Sant Magí Street. A suburb characterised by a strong personality, with a marine touch due to its nearness to the harbour, marked by simple and cosy buildings. Most of these restaurants are original and full of character, offering numerous gastronomical treats.

GÉNOVAGénova is an isolated nucleus within Palma, at the foot of the Na Burguesa mountain range, where we can find numerous restaurants offering popular and traditional cuisine. This is the right place to taste the typical Majorquine cuisine, such as a light dish like trempó or the well-known pa amb oli or more elaborated dishes such as suckling pig from the oven or rabbit with onions.

On the first line of the Es Molinar coast and its small fishing harbour you will find several bars and restaurants, making a special mention to those offering fresh seafood and fish.

The Olivar market, created in 1951 and the most ancient market of the city, is located right in the centre of Palma. Butcher's shops, fishmongers', fruit shops, bakeries, florist's shops... A total of 144 booths offer a delightful sight of colours and aromas to enjoy with the five senses.
