This famous 70-year-old restaurant has been under its current ownership for seven years. With fine views of Palma Cathedral and the harbour, it’s located above the fish market (‘llota des peix’), where the catch is auctioned off early each morning. Stairs or elevator take you up to the restaurant (open lunchtime until late at night). Access is through the fishermen’s ‘cantina’ (operational daytime only).
Restaurante Can Eduardo
Spanish, English and German
The restaurant itself is modern, light and on two levels, and managed by Pedro Llabrés. A private dining room seats up to 15, and there’s alfresco dining on the large terrace (with a fascinating 1960s’ photo of the Paseo Marítimo on one wall).
Irish chef/part-owner Johnny Moloney and his team do masterful things with the Mediterranean’s bounty, including eight types of paella and ‘fideuá’ (noodle dish) for two.
In six languages, the à la carte menu also features specialities such as spiny lobster (market price), bouillabaisse (for min two people), and grilled fish and shellfish.
We love… the succulent Mallorcan prawns in a salt crust.
