One might not expect that you can get the best salads on the island in a place better known for cocktails than food, but it’s true. When you are dreaming of a delicious healthy salad while in Palma, head to Nicolas Restaurant & Cocktail Bar in Plaça Mercat.
There is a small terrace outside the bar and this is the best place to sit. The tables are a bit small for the big plates but the food is so good that you can overlook these small details. The service can be slow here, particularly at peak times, but it is worth the wait.
We would recommend that you order a variety of salads to share. Divine dishes include the Italian cheese, burrata, with tomato, the salmon and tuna tartare, the vitello tonnato and the ceviche of tuna and prawns. In fact all the salads are amazing so try different ones each time you visit and we promise you won’t be disappointed.
The cocktails here are also good so do drop by in the evening, particularly at the weekend, where you will find the place buzzing with trendy locals and out-of-towners sipping mojitos and enjoying the ambience.
