Some of the best memories of summers on Mallorca are made when eating al fresco by the Mediterranean. The cooling gentle breezes are welcome when the mercury soars – restoring vitality and perking up appetites subdued by the heat. Gorgeous views out to sea or along the coastline soothe the soul and have us reaching for a camera to capture the moment.
There’s something about the whiff of ozone, the play of light and wind on the water, and the sounds by the sea that is captivating …
Mallorca has numerous restaurants around its varied coastline, for lunch or dinner with a view of the beautiful Mediterranean. But for an eating-out experience that will stay in the heart and mind even after the summer has ended, head for one of these amazing waterfront restaurants. And be sure to book your table in advance.
