This stylish tapas and cocktail bar under the same owneship as the popular restaurants Forn de Sant Joan and Koa became instantly popular when it opened in spring 2014. Its convenient central location, opposite the impressive Plaza de la Reina fountain, makes it a magnet for visitors and the outdoor tables are often full.
Head indoors, with tables on both ground and first floor levels; and even on the balcony. The simple but stylish décor, lively ambience, and open kitchen make a great backdrop.
Recognizing that Palma lacked the contemporary style of tapas available in other cities, OMBU’s owners addressed this by offering a new concept of high-quality innovative tapas and a list of creative cocktails. The formula appeals to both visitors and local people.
Our own favourites from the tempting sounding tapas-list included: tuna tataki with ponzu sauce; sea bass ceviche with avocado, and grilled Iberian pork with wild mushrooms and a gingery orange sauce. Vegetarians have a choice of eight tapas, including zucchini flowers in tempura with romesco sauce. Of the sweet treats we liked the white chocolate tiramisu.
OMBÚ is open every day except Mondays for lunch and dinner.
