Miguel Arias’s emblematic restaurant in Puerto Portals opened in 1987 and has a loyal well-heeled clientele.
Menu highlights include excellent steak tartar (27 euros) and popular Flanigan hamburger (22 euros). One of Mallorca’s best places for fresh fish (market prices), it serves an amazing sea bass in salt.
Accompaniments such as potatoes, spinach, ratatouille, rice, and salad cost an extra 4 euros each. Flanigan is famous for its apple pie and ice cream (14 euros), large enough for four people to share; request it at the start of your meal because it’s baked to order.
Wines are largely Spanish and Mallorcan, with some from France, Italy, and the New World – priced as you’d expect for this quality of restaurant.
Service is very good but can feel a bit hectic (two sittings a night). The several covered terraces offer good port views. Tables are close together so it’s not ideal for an intimate dinner for two.
Open every day of the year, from 13:00h until late, it’s also one of the few port restaurants serving breakfast.
You need to book well in advance to eat here.
We love: The apple pie!
