A cosy narrow-fronted former spice shop, in the atmospheric street alongside C&A, Canela is owned by Mallorcan chef Fabian Fuster and his partner Irene Rigo.
English & Spanish
Open for lunch and dinner (except Sundays), and dinner only in summer. The main area is styled like a Parisian bistro, seating 20 diners on small, close together tables, without tablecloths.
Fabian – who has worked in Amsterdam and London restaurants – bases his cuisine on prime-quality produce. The menu offers typical Mediterranean dishes as well as Med/Asian fusion.
Sharing is recommended, and dishes are presented accordingly. From the ‘snacks’ section we had: delicious soft-shell crab tempura with spicy sweet melon salad; pork and tiger prawn gyozas; chicken and tiger prawns dim sum with Thai sauce, and kataifi-wrapped king scallop with wakame salad, soy, and sake air. All were packed with flavour and attractively presented. Maître d’ and sommelier Roberto Mosquera adds to the enjoyment of eating at Canela.
Canela is very busy at night – word of the great food has spread – so you need to book. This isn’t a place to dine if you’re under time pressure.
We love… Dishes for sharing so we can taste more!
