Located in Palma’s Scandi-cool designer-hotel, Puro, this dinner-only restaurant is also open to non-residents. Given the stylish setting, chef Leon Altamirano’s Asian/Mediterranean cuisine is surprisingly affordable: first courses start at 4€ (some enough to share); mains from 17€ and desserts from 5€.

The ambience is relaxed: décor features neutral colours, subtle lighting, and striking modern art. Reserve a round table for the comfortable sink-into chairs. In summer, there are tables in the private courtyard where you can enjoy a drink.
Food and beverage director/maître d’ is now Rasier Gomez who supervises the efficient and friendly service.
The interesting menu includes international tapas, including bao buns with calamares and chipotle, mini Angus burger, and scallop and prawn ceviche. The three fish dishes include the excellent smoked turbot with prawn risotto, dressed with cashews and sesame. Meat fans should try the melt-in-the-mouth 24-hour cooked Hereford beef rib, with baby corn, potato, and a wine reduction.
The wines are Spanish (there are also a few from Mallorca on the list) and international, and include Puro’s own label; prices start at 26€.
