Can Pastilla is situated in the bay of Palma, and connected to the capital by a wonderfully scenic seaside promenade. Along it, you’ll find a medley of souvenir shops, ice cream parlours and tourist-orientated cafés and bars. Though not an area known for fine dining – some venues could do with an upgrade – there are some tasty options.
Discover fresh seafood and typical Mallorcan ‘pambolis’ beside the bay; mouthwatering grilled meat on the outskirts; and high quality Japanese and Mediterranean cuisine along the promenade and in neighbouring Ciudad Jardín.
The international beach club offers stunning views of Palma’s bay from its position on an isolated peninsula. The white decor, the glimmering pool and the resident DJ’s deliver that relaxed yet glamorous island life feel. Contemporary Mediterranean and Asian dishes can be found on their menu.

A laid-back Spanish restaurant, which has specialised in seafood since 1983. It’s situated along the seaside promenade, beside the boat club.
